Harnessing the Healing Power of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a promising medical treatment for individuals dealing with injuries and chronic pain. Administered in a specialized chamber, HBOT involves breathing pure oxygen at higher-than-normal atmospheric pressures. This therapy enhances blood oxygen levels, promoting cellular healing. It also reduces inflammation and stimulates collagen production, aiding in wound repair. Conditions such as chronic wounds, diabetic ulcers, and non-healing injuries can benefit from HBOT, fostering faster healing and minimizing infection risks.


Long COVID Syndrome

Acute COVID infections may be on the decline but chronic or long hauler COVID is becoming more apparent and disabling for many individuals. Post COVID Syndrome is characterized by persisting symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, shortness of breath, and malaise following COVID-19 infection. These negative effects are often lasting weeks and even months beyond the acute and natural course of the infection. New research is beginning to unravel the mystery of these debilitating and persisting symptoms as well as providing direction and treatments that can help individuals recover while eliminating the chronic symptoms.


Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM)

Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is a system of treatment using micro-amperage current, which is electrical current in millionths of an ampere and is the same kind of current your body produces on its own (and thus is biocompatible). There is no shock involved, and most people do not feel anything although a very slight vibration sensation is possible.
