What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy? | Wellness Origin Blog

One of our favorite treatments at Wellness Origin is the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber. Wellness Origin has the only free-standing chamber in central Indiana, making our Day Spa and Wellness Center unique to the area.

How Does the Chamber Work?

Without a doubt, oxygen is a critical element for our existence. It is the element that sustains us. It is what we need for all biological function in our bodies, from generating energy to breaking down toxins and to regenerate. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy offers many wonderful benefits to our bodies. The chamber is a therapeutic use of oxygen in a pressurized hyperbaric chamber. The pressurized atmosphere allows the cells to fill with ten times more oxygen than a normal atmosphere. When your cells fill up with more than the normal amount of oxygen, it leads to lasting health benefits. Check with one of our specialists by calling +1 (317) 979-1234 to find out how many treatments would be beneficial to you.

Oxygen is dissolved into all of the body’s fluids, plasma, lymph system, and bone. Oxygen is carried to areas where circulation of the blood is blocked or diminished. Then, oxygen can reach all of the damaged tissues to help the body heal faster. Increased oxygen allows the body to more effectively clear out infection, increase production of new red blood cells, and encourage capillary growth for faster healing.

While this type of therapy is most used for its healing benefits, it also has some physiological benefits to it. Some examples include increased neural energy metabolism in the brain, sustained cognitive improvement, and can work as an anti-inflammatory. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is also known to deactivate toxins and poisons from spider bites, air pollution, unwanted side effects from certain medical treatments, and more. Multiple sessions are recommended to maximize the benefits, but oxygen levels will remain high in tissues for several hours after treatment.
