What is HBOT?
There are two parts to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Increased purity of Oxygen and Higher than normal pressure. The air we normally breathe contains 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen, with the remaining 1% being contributed by the noble gases and carbon dioxide. However, in HbOT you breathe 95% pure oxygen.
Our chamber is pressurised to 1.45 Bar, which is almost one and a half times the pressure we normally experience in our everyday lives.
The unique HbOT combination of pure oxygen at high pressure has a revitalising effect. Better still these benefits involve no drugs and are non-intrusive.
How does breathing more oxygen help?
However, increasing the pressure surrounding a client in a hyperbaric chamber and using 95% oxygen allows a significant increase in the amount of oxygen dissolved in the bloodstream. This ‘enriched blood’ is carried to the 15 Trillion cells in their body even those with blocked or reduced blood flow can benefit.
The air that we breathe every day provides enough oxygen for both normal body metabolism and repair to tissue damage after injury or illness.
The improvements we have seen in clients in our centres are little short of miraculous. It makes Oxify an exhilarating place to work!
This increased flow of oxygen stimulates and restores function to damaged cells and organs including those in the liver and brain. It also significantly enhances the body’s ability to heal.

What happens in a session?
HbOT at Oxify is a very pleasurable experience. After you have entered your dedicated chamber, fully clothed with an oxygen mask placed over your nose and mouth, the pressure is gradually increased by an Oxify team member. The speed of pressure increase is carefully monitored and controlled. During your session you can read, listen to music or watch a movie. You are monitored throughout to ensure you are happy and at ease.
