Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
What is oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a therapeutic treatment that consists of the administration of pure oxygen (O2) at greater concentrations than those found in the air we breathe, with the intention of increasing the dissolved oxygen gas supplied to the tissues.
The oxygen therapy has been used for decades by hyperbaric medicine to treat certain diseases naturally and in recent years it is also used as a natural source of beauty and wellness.
