Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or ‘HBOT’ is a safe, invigorating procedure which allows a patient to breathe purified air with higher levels of oxygen concentration, typically at a higher air pressure than normal. This provides an ideal environment for healing wounds, recovering from disease or illness and experiencing an improved sense of wellbeing. Professionally delivered HBOT treatments can deliver more oxygen into our blood and tissues, ensuring that your body has the optimum level of oxygen in order to truly thrive. Equally, if your tissues and cells are not receiving the optimum levels of oxygen, the body’s ability to heal injuries or illness can be severely compromised. All of the body’s functions, from day-to-day homeostasis to healing surgical or accidental wounds, are empowered in a hyperbaric environment. Both scientific studies and our own experiences demonstrate that HBOT can repair damaged tissues and help cells to recover and optimise their functions. This translates in improved energy, vitality and wellbeing.

The Wellbeing Medical Group’s hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions are completely safe and take place is a specially designed, comfortable therapy room. The increased barometric pressure in the chamber would improve your oxygen levels in a relaxing, non-invasive way. Questions? Allow one of our HBOT specialists to clarify your concerns today.
The hyperbaric oxygen chamber works by raising the air pressure within the chamber, during this time the patient is given pure or high-percentage oxygen to breathe. That, in turn, leads to increased oxygenation of the body’s tissues, which has numerous health benefits.
A typical hyperbaric oxygen therapy session has four distinct phases:
- In the first stage, the chamber is pressurised to a set level, often just over twice normal air pressure. This is comfortable for most patents.
- Next, oxygen is administered to the patient whilst lying within the chamber.
- The patient breathes in high-pressure oxygen within the chamber.
- Finally, the chamber is slowly depressurised, and the patient can leave the chamber when instructed. You are free to go about your day, thoroughly invigorated.
Generally, no. Some people can find the change in atmospheric pressure slightly uncomfortable, but the effect is similar to one’s ears ‘popping’ when flying in an airplane. The chamber itself is comfortably furnished, and you will have plenty of room to move about.
That can vary person to person, which will be assessed by our medical team. Typically, a session can last between 30 minutes – 1 hour.
This varies, depending on the condition for which you are seeking the hyperbaric chamber, your medical background, physical condition and several other factors will be assessed prior to recommending a course for the hyperbaric chamber.
Our medical member will recommend accordingly, on most cases our patients use the hyperbaric chamber once to twice a week for a set period. From here we will evaluate and advise accordingly the next step.
