How mHBOT Works?

To understand how mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) works, a good analogy is a can of fizzy drink. The can is a pressurised vessel, in the can there is liquid, then a gas is added. According to Henry’s Law, gas under pressure will dissolve into the liquid. Hence the “fizzy” in the drink. In the Hyperbaric Chamber, as the pressure goes up, more oxygen is “pushed” into the fluids of the body to boost oxygen levels. Supplementary oxygen is added to the chamber via the use of an oxygen concentrator. This oxygen becomes infused into all the body’s fluids, blood, plasma and cerebral fluids just from breathing the air in the chamber. Red blood cells become saturated with oxygen and all remaining oxygen dissolves directly into other body fluids and tissue.

How Can mHBOT Help Me?


Maximizing healing potential is the foundation for understanding how Hyperbaric therapy works. Nature dictates that healing cannot take place without adequate oxygen levels in the body’s tissues. Cells and tissues without oxygen die, or become hypoxic, a condition in which the body, or a region of the body, is deprived of oxygen. Hypoxia is a major factor in the development of stroke, heart attack, Alzheimer’s, dementia and cancer. Oxygen has natural healing properties and increasing the amount circulating oxygen throughout the body promotes faster and more effective healing for a wide variety of diseases and illnesses. It also provides numerous preventative health benefits.

How Long Is The Treatment Plan? 


Each case will respond differently. The level of success achieved is determined by the unique physiology of the individual and their commitment to following the necessary steps to recovery.  Treatment length will depend on your individual situation and objectives and be affected by factors such as age, health profile, stress levels and lifestyle (activity level, smoking, alcohol, diet etc). The more willing you are to make healthy choices such as exercise, certain dietary changes and nutritional supplementation, the better results you will get. Most mHBOT treatement plans are a minimum of six weeks of daily treatment for best results.
