You may have heard it before - how you fuel your body is directly linked to how your body performs day in and day out. I’m not just talking about...
SUPERCHARGE YOUR HEALING PROCESS
PRESSURE UP TO 3.0
CUTS RECOVERY TIME IN HALF
REGROWS BLOOD VESSELS
IMPROVES BLOOD FLOW
Oxygen helps the body rejuvenate its self-healing properties. Most of our health problems today are caused by oxygen starvation at cellular level. Boosting the influx of oxygen into our blood flow is known to greatly accelerate recovery times and help our natural immune system do the healing work and improve overall wellness.
HARD VS. SOFT CHAMBERS
Hard chambers are capable of reaching pressure levels of 6.0 ATA, while a soft chamber has the capability of reaching only 1.5 ATA. Safe levels of pressure are between 1.0 atm and 3.0 atm and for the hyperbaric oxygen therapy to really work on your body, you need to exceed 1.5 atm.
Does Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy it hurt?
No. At the beginning of the session, as your sinuses adjust to the increase in pressure, you may experience a “popping” sensation similar to what you likely have experienced on an airplane. Lume staff will coach you through a couple different ear popping techniques, and if it remains uncomfortable, Lume staff will lower the pressure until it is comfortable.
Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy safe?
Yes. A Lume employee will sit with you at the beginning of the session until the hyperbaric chamber has reached its maximum pressure. You will have an intercom between you with which you’ll be able to communicate.
What do I wear to my Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy appointment?
Something comfortable. We recommend something loose-fitting and cozy. We do ask, though, that you refrain from wearing scented perfumes and lotions or heavy jewelry.
