Effortless Wellness

Welcome to OxylifePlus

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) combines increased levels of oxygen with elevated levels of pressure inside a comfortable and relaxing hyperbaric chamber. This combination of pressure and oxygen is reported to be relaxing and therapeutic, and may assist the natural healing powers of the body.  

Used in conjunction with good medical advice, HBOT is described as a whole-body experience that supports and enhances the positive effects of quality medical interventions. Research indicates that HBOT reduces inflammation, assists healing, and speeds up the rehabilitation process. 

Responsible HBOT is reported to be safe, and research suggests that it can improve general health and healing,  sports performance, beauty and relaxation.

 

“When oxygen is under pressure, it acts like a drug and has drug-like effects on the DNA, bringing about permanent changes in the cell and surrounding tissue.” Paul G. Harch, M.D.

ABOUT HBOT

How and why does hyperbaric oxygen therapy work?

How does it work?

Increased pressure enables highly oxygenated blood to diffuse from the blood vessels into the surrounding tissue. This therapeutic pressure is much higher than normal atmospheric pressure and, when cells are exposed to increased O2, the natural healing powers of our bodies are improved.

 

Why does it work?

The base element in all healthy cells is oxygen. Body tissue needs an optimum supply of oxygen to function effectively. When tissue is injured or starved of oxygen through a blockage or ischemic event, it requires even more oxygen to survive and rehabilitate. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen that blood cells and plasma can carry and this oxygen is used by active cells and tissue to recover and repair. Elevated O2 levels in the blood temporarily restores normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to fight infection, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.

 

Quite simply HBOT:

  1. Saturates the blood and tissue with increased levels of oxygen, activating cellular stimulation, rehabilitation and communication (angiogenesis, neurogenesis).
  2. Circulates blood throughout the vascular system, cerebrospinal fluids and bone marrow offering repair, regrowth and re-vascularization.
  3. Improves blood/ plasma circulation into micro spaces such as capillaries, invigorating and enlivening dormant tissues, reducing scaring and improving tissue connectivity.

 

What is it like inside a hyperbaric chamber?

Quality hbot chambers are safe, spacious and soundproof. They are typically air conditioned and comfortable, and use leading design technology to provide healing oxygen therapy. 

Participants often read, relax, take a nap, meditate, or simply enjoy some downtime, peace and quiet.

WHY HBOT?

HBOT in a Nutshell

HBOT

“Giving more oxygen is not alternative medicine, it is sound science and common sense. There is no substitute for oxygen.”

Professor Philip B James MB ChB, PhD, DIH, FFOM2

Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy is used extensively throughout Europe, Russia and the USA. According to extensive research many health and wellness conditions can benefit from HBOT in conjunction with standard care.

“To significantly increase the level of oxygen carried in the blood needs a pressure chamber. Giving a high level of oxygen for just one hour a day may promote the repair of tissues when all other medical interventions have failed. In other words giving more oxygen extends the envelope of natural recovery.”  Professor Philip James
