HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY EXPLAINED
The HBOT is based on science and technology, which makes a pressurised environment inside the chamber to increase the amount of oxygen.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Inside the chamber, oxygen is compressed under pressure (1.3ATA) which increases its amount. This will give a significant 35% increase of oxygen that you can breathe and circulate throughout your body.
In a normal everyday situation, without pressurized oxygen (1.0ATA), we usually breathe 21% oxygen and 78% nitrogen. Our lung filter it to supply to our red blood cells. However, these red blood cells are saturated at 97% and unable to carry additional oxygen.
We know that any amount of extra oxygen is good for our body, to repair and regenerate our cells and tissues.
By providing an increase in oxygen to the cells, your body will gain benefits like increased energy, improve mind clarify, deepen sleep quality and improve overall health & wellbeing.
In today’s busy and active lifestyle, it’s important to find balance in your work, family and personal life. The HBOT provides a good experience to rebalance your lifestyle. Just focus on letting go, relax in the chamber for about an hour to give you a unique wellness experience.
The Dickson Lab is dedicated to providing you with a safe avenue to improve your health. Come and experience yourself, how it feels like to undergo HBOT.
BENEFITS OF THE THERAPY
Sleep disorder can be alleviated with HBOT.
The more oxygen our bodies use, the more fat we will burn!
Decreases blood sugar
Suitable for the treatment of non-healing wounds of diabetics.
Mobilize stem cell
Only after one session, concentration of stem cells doubled. After 20 sessions, there will be an eight-fold increased in these rejuvenating cells!
OxyBoost regenerates and heal damaged cells. It will slow down the process of aging over the long term.
Re-grow blood vessels and regenerate nerve cells.
Sports Endurance & Recovery
HBOT allow the injured athlete to return to competition faster than with the normal course of rehabilitation, with a low risk of re-injury.
Anti-ageing & Beauty
HBOT can reverse two major processes associated with aging and its illnesses: the shortening of telomeres (protective regions located at both ends of every chromosome) and the accumulation of old and malfunctioning cells in the body.
This vast network of brain cells is fed with oxygen and other nutrients by blood from over 100,000 miles of blood vessels inside the brain. In children and adults with anxiety, there are often not enough of these blood vessels supplying oxygen and important nutrients.
Toxic air affects 90% of the world’s population, according to WHO. 9/10 people are currently breathing-in toxic air. Oxygen intake peaks at the age of 20 and decreases with age. Around the age of 60, oxygen intake is only 40% as compared to its peak level. The long term effects of air pollution on a person’s health can range from breathing difficulties to severe cardiovascular issues, including heart disease, lung cancer and stroke. Oxygen deficiency in the short term will cause fatigue, headache, dizziness, restlessness and loss of memory. Harmful gases and particles in the air come from a range of sources, including exhaust fumes from vehicles, smoke from burning coal or gas, and tobacco smoke. A person can reduce the likelihood of health problems by checking the air quality in their local areas, being aware of any existing health conditions and to seek medical help immediately.
Revitalization of the brain cells
Ability to improve 20% of brain memory and helps transport more oxygen throughout the entire brain while stimulating the parasympathetic component.
Top 5 reasons why athletes benefits from HBOT:
The elevated oxygen level helps athletes improve performance and recover more quickly after workout. More oxygen is delivered to the brain to facilitate brain function and enhanced an athlete’s abilities to make split-second decisions that could be a crucial factor in a game.
- Enhanced Physical
- Performance Better
- Mental Clarity
- Improved Sleep
- Decreased Soreness after Physical Activity
- Reduced Inflammation
- Heightened Energy
FDA recognizes HBOT as an effective therapy for several conditions, including severe anemia, osteomyelitis, arterial insufficiencies and more. Hyperbaric clients themselves have found relief for a range of conditions, including chronic migraines, PTSD, post-surgery recovery and post-sport healing. Athletic associations like the NFL employ hyperbaric oxygen therapy as part of the recovery regime for its athletes.
11 Ways Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Can Change Your Life
For many people with a severe or chronic medical condition, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an effective, sustainable treatment. While HBOT may seem like a relatively new treatment, celebrities and athletes have been utilizing and promoting HBOT for years. Professional athletes, including former NFL star Terrell Owen and Denver Branco’s Tim Tebow have spoken publicly about using hyperbaric oxygen therapy to expedite sport injury recovery. Michael Jackson was even said to sleep in a hyperbaric chamber every night.
Oxygen makes up approximately 21% of every breath we breathe. In a hyperbaric setting, oxygen is inhaled exclusively.
- Air or Gas Embolism
- Hypoxia (lack of oxygen)
- Brain Infections
- Traumatic Injuries
- Skin Grafts
- Radiation Damage
- Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
- Diabetic Foot Ulcers
- Neurological Disorders

Most frequent questions and answers
No. Keep in mind that the “40 hour protocol’ is the gold standard for the physiological benefits that have been observed with HBOT. However, the actual physiological benefits (for HBOT) can be seen in just a few sessions!
Most physiological benefits will begin within the first few sessions of HBOT. It has been well documented that the anti-oxidant and protective role of HBOT is immediate and demonstrated within 24 hours of just one hyperbaric session. Further, the anti-inflammatory response is also very quick and a strong physiological response within 4 days of hyperbaric therapy. Many studies have reported HBOT to produce a strong pain relieving effect after just 5 to 10 sessions. HBOT’s effects on promoting new blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) can take place in just 10 to 20 sessions. From our data, here is a general summary:
1-5 sessions: improve cellular energy and during this time tissue functioning may be optimized. Those with residual carbon monoxide (ie smokers) or with mild anemia can show immediate benefits with cellular energy. Inflammatory markers can go down considerably and mark the beginning of a natural repair process.
5-10 sessions: Typically used for acute injuries with soft tissue damage, particularly if there is pain involved.
10-20 sessions: More serious acute injuries or chronic injuries.
20-40 sessions: Commonly used for major tissue damages and wen new tissue is required (through HBOT’s regenerative stem cell properties)
Most research studies typically use 60-90 minute sessions and the majority have reported positive benefits. However, shorter duration sessions (i.e. 30 to 40 min) are getting great feedback from clients undergoing HBOT.
Yes, and that is why we like to focus on “physiological benefits” opposed to medical conditions. In aying that, it is highly recommended that you speak to us about having a general screening for being inside of a hyperbaric chamber.
Once again, we encourage you to take a closer look at the physiological benefits and see if there are any pertinent areas of interest for yourself such as anti-ageing process.
No. It is the pressure that plays the most critical role in the effective dosage of HBOT. This is due to extra oxygen being dissolved in the blood plasma when under pressure, which can travel to deeper areas in the body where blood flow and oxygen levels were limited. An oxygen inhaler only delivers higher oxygen concentrations and does not pressurize the oxygen. Therefore it cannot deliver the same effects as you can experience through hyperbaric oxygen therapy, only HBOT will be able to force significantly more oxygen into the blood plasma.
M-HBOT is only approved for altitude sickness. All other reasons for using m-HBOT are considered off-label. However, m-HBOT provides the body with a significantly high amount of extra oxygen, which may be beneficial for a variety of clients. The extra oxygen travels in the body’s plama (the liquid portion of our bloodstream) and in that case, m-HBOT would not be appropriate. This does not mean that id does not work! A similar example would be for taking a course of oral antibiotics. They will work just fine in oral form. However, sometimes, we need a stronger dose and will go to the hospital for IV antibiotics. Think of m-HBOT as an oral oxygen supplement and higher pressure HBOT as administering oxygen intravenously.
Every person is different and some will immediate benefits and others may not notice them at all until completion of their series of hyperbaric sessions. In terms of the “40 hour protocol”, it is not uncommon for the majority of the benefits to be reported up to 4 weeks following its completion.
