Oxygen is vital for all the body's essential functions, so these functions are at risk when your body becomes hypoxic (oxygen deficient). Mild oxygen chambers such as ours are pressurised to allow someone to experience atmospheric pressures greater than normal. This increased barometric pressure makes the air denser, providing more oxygen molecules per unit to both your red blood cells and blood plasma.
This therapy takes place inside an inflatable chamber. As the chamber inflates, you may experience a mild sensation in your ears, similar to flying. Once the chamber is at full pressure your ears will equalize, and you can relax and enjoy yourself. It is advisable to wear loose, comfortable clothing in the chamber. After treatment, you may carry on with your day as per normal.
