COVID-19 UPDATE...

We continue to provide a restricted and limited centre-based service in compliance with current guidance.

For further info, please get in touch.

Oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the therapeutic use of oxygen in a pressurised environment. Our barochambers were initially installed by people with MS, who found that it helped to relieve symptoms, such as fatigue, poor balance, mobility and poor bladder control. Although there is no cure for MS and some other long-term health conditions, there is evidence that Oxygen Therapy may be effective in slowing down MS as well as other conditions.

Our barochambers can seat up to 8 people, including manual and some electric wheelchairs. During our one-hour sessions, you will be breathing in pure oxygen through a mask, this increases oxygen levels in the bloodstream, encouraging the body to accelerate healing, generating new stem cells, repairing damaged tissues and limiting scar formation (known to prevent the restoration of the nerve function).

How can Oxygen Therapy help you?

Oxygen therapy has been shown to:

- Increase oxygen delivery to injured tissues and stop further tissue damage.
- Prevent and/or reduce swelling.
- Increase bone recovery and improve peripheral nerve regeneration.
- Improve the immune system response and blood vessel formation.
- Promote wound healing.
- Eliminate toxins and reduce effects from toxic substances.
- Increase muscular force and reduce fatigue and muscle spasm.
- Increase the effect of some antibiotics and relieve pain.

How can Oxygen Therapy help with other long-term health conditions?

According to scientific research, Oxygen Therapy can help with the following conditions:

Fibromyalgia – An Israeli study concluded that Oxygen Therapy was an effective intervention for many fibromyalgia symptoms. .
Diabetic Ulcers & Wound Healing – Oxygen Therapy can stimulate healing in stubborn wounds.
