3 reasons to try out Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Boost your mental clarity, energy and immunity with this wonder treatment that’s got everyone talking.



Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), while being popular in the US for some years, is relatively new to the Australian health and wellness market. At the forefront of wellness technology, this type of therapy has been known to help with a host of injuries and illnesses but it’s the simple benefits – like boosting your mental clarity, energy and immunity – that have gained the treatment serious popularity.


What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

First things first; what is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and how does it work? This non-invasive treatment involves relaxing in a futuristic, pressurised oxygen capsule that contains more oxygen than regular air.


The pressurisation of the capsule paired with the higher levels of oxygen in the air encourages your body to easily intake 35% more oxygen and deliver it around your entire body.



Extra oxygen delivered at higher levels throughout your body – not only via red blood cells but by dissolving into all body fluids including the plasma, your central nervous system, bones and lymph fluids – is great for a whole host of reasons. And you don’t have to be recovering from injury or trying to treat a specific ailment to see serious benefits from this treatment.


1. Increase your mental clarity

Are you struggling with brain fog? Finding it hard to concentrate? We know that as a society our attention spans are shortening and brain fog has become a commonly used buzzword.


HBOT enhances blood flow and delivers increased oxygen levels to your brain, this dramatically helps fight brain fog and increases your mental clarity.


You can even take your to-do with you and work on your phone, or laptop, inside the capsule during your treatment. Why not ask your boss to shout you a HBOT session to boost your productivity?


2. Boost your energy

We get it – the stress and anxiety associated with work and everyday life can hinder the amount of oxygen that you’re getting to your brain and make you feel downright fatigued. HBOT not only increases the oxygen delivery to your brain but throughout your entire body – this decreases inflammation, helps to heal any niggling injuries and boosts your overall energy levels for the day.


3. Raise your immunity

HBOT helps to enhance your body’s own healing response and increase your immunity. Extra oxygen stores throughout your body help to repair damaged tissues and promote the growth of new, heartier blood vessels. The new, freshly-oxygenated blood cells help to kill bacteria more efficiently thus further improving your immunity.


So, if you’re looking to give your overall health and vitality a boost, HBOT might be just the thing you need.
