As some of you know Dr. Bravo added a beautiful mild Hyperbaric Chamber to his practice and now the chamber is available for anyone wishing to book sessions. His goal is to make available this way of treatment to all of you with prices that the people can afford.
If you are not an expert, the chamber is a Vitaeris320 and you can see it and read about it in http://www.oxyhealth.com/vitaeris-320.html. This chamber is spacious and provides enough room for an adult and a child to lying comfortably.
But, what is HYPERBARIC OXIGEN THERAPY?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) is a therapeutic technique that increases oxygen and air pressure to the patient. “Hyper” means increased and “baric” relates to pressure. HBOT this refers to intermittent treatment of the entire body with 100-percent oxygen at greater than normal atmospheric pressures. It is non-invasive, painless and has minimal risk of side effects. The session usually last for one hour and person will be continually monitored to ensure their comfort. HBOT’s ability to increase oxygen helps the patient’s cells improve the healing process – killing bacteria, reducing swelling and inflammation and repairing damaged tissues.
At this higher pressure oxygen becomes more concentrated. As a result it is absorbed in blood and throughout the tissues of the body at a higher rate. Oxygen promotes improved function and healing, so the first benefits one will experience are more energy, clearer thinking, and faster recovery from injury or surgery for example.
One of the most widespread applications of these chambers is for athletes as both recovery between events and recovery from injury speed up dramatically.
Other areas in which significant benefits have been noted are fatigue and pain, whether chronic or acute. Of equal interest are the benefits noted in people suffering from neurological conditions. In autism, benefits have ranged from mild to dramatic and commonly include improved eye contact, increased responsiveness, more appropriate behavior and better overall function. Equal benefits have been noted in children suffering from focus problems and/or hyperactivity. In all cases benefits are seen with repeated sessions.
