Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Effective in Improvement of Autism

A new Tel Aviv University study succeeded in significantly improving social skills and the condition of the autistic brain through pressure chamber therapy. The study was conducted on lab models of autism. In it, the researchers identified changes in the brain, including a reduction in neuroinflammation, which is known to be associated with autism. Moreover, a significant improvement was found in the social functioning of the animal models treated in the pressure chamber. The study’s success has many implications regarding the applicability and understanding of treating autism using hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

In short, the oxygen-enriched atmosphere of the pressure chamber allows for the reduction in inflammation around the brain which aids in limiting the symptoms of autism.

Hyperbaric Chamber improves symptoms of PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a complex, chronic, and debilitating psychiatric disorder that develops in response to severe psychological traumatic exposure. PTSD is characterized by intrusive thoughts, nightmares, and flashbacks of past traumatic events, avoidance of trauma reminders, hypervigilance, sleep disturbances, and persisting dysregulation of the stress response.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is characterized by changes in both brain activity and microstructural integrity. 

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) includes the inhalation of 100% oxygen at pressures exceeding 1 atmosphere absolute (ATA), thus enhancing the amount of oxygen dissolved in the body tissues.

Cumulative evidence demonstrates that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) improved symptoms, brain microstructure, and functionality in veterans with treatment-resistant PTSD.

Increase Brain Oxygenation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Brain Fog

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has been used for centuries to treat a variety of symptoms and syndromes, and in recent years, it has been shown to improve many brain disorders. Notably, in recent years, numerous such clinical trials have been supported by the National Institute of Health. Over 230 clinical trials examining HBOT have been reported (, accessed on 4 September 2021). Of these, 50 clinical trials are examining the effects of HBOT on brain-related injuries and disorders.

In many studies, it is shown that HBOT improves brain function. HBOT has been shown to improve cerebral blood flow, brain metabolism, and brain microstructure, leading to improved cognitive functions, physical functions, sleep, and gait. HBOT has been found to have several potential benefits for people suffering from brain fog. One of the primary benefits of HBOT is increased oxygenation of the brain. This increased oxygenation can help to repair damaged tissues, reduce inflammation, and promote the growth of new blood vessels.

At our holistic wellness center, we are proud to have an ADA-accessible Hyperbaric Chamber. Also, our Hyperbaric Chamber can accommodate up to 2 adults or 1 adult and up to 2 kids.
