Oxygen Therapy involves breathing medical-grade oxygen through a mask whilst sitting, for an hour, in a barometric chamber at 1.5 to 2 normal atmospheric pressure. We all live under the pressure of the atmosphere and the extra pressure required for the therapy is minimal. The technology is well-established and has a 100 year history. It is only relatively recently that it has been recognised that even when the level of oxygen in the blood is normal there can be severe deficiency in tissues. Now the science is understood, the use of Oxygen Therapy is expanding rapidly around the world.
Oxygen Therapy has been found to benefit a wide variety of conditions, listed here, including Multiple Sclerosis.
Patients spend on average one hour at a time in the chamber. Sessions are simple, non-invasive and painless. Once accustomed to the procedure most people find the sessions pleasurable and relaxing. Therapy begins with 20 sessions in close proximity, ideally 5 days a week. This prepares the body for the subsequent top-up sessions which usually happen once a week. Before your first session an experienced member of our team will explain the procedures in detail.
