Patients who struggle with various health issues are always on the lookout for new treatments and therapies that could improve their quality of life. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) from AuraSpa of Beverly Hills offers many potential benefits for a range of conditions. Could this be a healing therapy you should consider?

What is HBOT?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a treatment that involves breathing in 100% oxygen while in a pressurized chamber that raises the air pressure surrounding your body to about three times above normal. This allows your body to absorb more oxygen than it would through normal breathing, which can have a variety of therapeutic effects. At AuraSpa, we use the OxyHelp monoplace hyperbaric chamber system, one of the best options available for oxygen therapy.

One of the most well-known uses of HBOT is for treating decompression sickness in scuba divers. However, it’s also used in hospitals to treat a range of conditions, from carbon monoxide poisoning to severe infections. In recent years, it’s also gained popularity as a complementary therapy for a variety of chronic health issues.

Help with Chronic Health Issues and Healing

So, why might someone consider HBOT? Well, there are a few potential benefits to this therapy. For one, it can help reduce inflammation in the body. This is because oxygen is a natural anti-inflammatory agent, and when your body has more of it, it can better fight off inflammation-related conditions like arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease.

In addition, HBOT has been shown to promote wound healing. When you have more oxygen in your body, your cells can work more efficiently to repair damaged tissue. This can be especially helpful for people with slow-healing wounds or those who have undergone surgery.

Another potential benefit of HBOT is that it can improve cognitive function. This is because oxygen is vital for brain function, and when you have more of it, your brain can work better. Some studies have even shown that HBOT can help improve memory and learning ability in older adults. It is also proven to help with radiation damage, traumatic brain injuries and chronic fatigue syndrome. Additionally, some people have reported improvements in conditions such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and autism spectrum disorder.

How Could HBOT Help You?

Like any therapy, HBOT isn’t a magic cure-all. It’s important to talk to Dr. Ben Talei and his team at AuraSpa of Beverly Hills about whether this therapy might be right for you. HBOT isn’t for everyone, but for a surprising number of patients with certain health issues, it could be worth considering as a complementary therapy. Our talented aestheticians can explain how HBOT can help battle the signs of aging and help with other medical conditions. Contact AuraSpa today to learn more and schedule a consultation with a team member who can explain more and answer your questions.
