8 Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy


2023 is shaping up to be the year of the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber, as wellness editors and athletes alike laud its healing benefits. In fact, such is the therapy’s soothing powers that many celebrities have even had a chamber installed in their home.

But what exactly happens inside the chamber? If you book in at Mallucci, you enter what we call an Oxygen Therapy AirPod, where you lie back and simply take deep, relaxing breaths. Once you’ve settled in, a highly concentrated dose of pure, 100% oxygen – at a pressure 1.5 to 3 times higher than average – is pumped in. And that’s when you reap these Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy benefits…

1. Accelerated recovery

Whether you’ve got a post-cardio injury or you’re recovering after surgery, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy will help to activate your body’s natural healing processes. That flood of oxygen is useful for fighting bacteria and generating stem cells, which then support other cells in your body, including muscle cells, blood cells and brain cells.

2. Boosts cellular rejuvenation

As we mention above, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy helps to generate stem cells. But did you know that it can also help to rejuvenate existing cells? Studies even suggest that it can have an anti-ageing effect on your skin, as it heals the effects of stress on your complexion from within.

3. Promotes collagen production

On the subject of skin, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is also thought to promote collagen production – also known as the ‘building blocks’ of healthy, plumped-up skin. Our collagen levels naturally deplete over time, resulting in a loss of elasticity, but giving them a boost can help your skin appear firmer, more youthful and radiant.

4. Fast tracks your training

If you’re training hard in the gym, there’s nothing more frustrating than an injury. It can set back your fitness plan and keep you away from your workouts for weeks or even months. So, the aid in recovery from HBOT has an added bonus: it gets you back on track quicker, so you can pick up your training plan without the need for a long hiatus.

5. Reduces pain and bruising

As well as aiding muscle recovery, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy soothes pain and bruising, so if you’re dealing with a tender wound it’s the perfect option for you. This is because it encourages oxygen-rich plasma to rush to the injured area, where healthy tissue is then revitalised for boosted healing.

6. Soothes swelling and inflammation

After a HBOT session, the elevated oxygen levels in your bloodstream can work to dial down inflammation and, in turn, any swelling you might be experiencing.

7. Assists with mental clarity

Not only is the Hyperbaric Oxygen AirPod a relaxing place to be – great for calming the mind – but it also assists with mental clarity. You may also find it useful if, simply, you’re feeling overwhelmed and want to boost brain function.

8. Enhances energy levels

Finally, if you’re looking for a way to recharge your energy levels, a session in the Hyperbaric Oxygen AirPod may be just what you need. You’ll emerge feeling revitalised and refreshed, ready to take on the rest of your day. This is one reason you may want to book in for the morning or at lunchtime to beat the mid-afternoon slump.
