HEALING POWER OF OXYGEN
Oxygen is essential to the tissues in the body and any tissue injury requires oxygen for healing. The body normally heals itself using oxygen from air increased oxygen concentration can extend the body’s ability to heal. Many athletes, both professional and amateur, are now turning to Hyperbaric Therapy to reap the many benefits of this technology including:
- Quicker healing of soft tissues, ligaments, and fractures.
- Reduction in swelling and pain.
- Hypoxia prevention in traumatized tissues.
- Enhanced ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria and prevent infection.
- Reduction of scar tissue formation.
FLOATING AND INJURY REPAIR
For anyone struggling with a chronic condition, floating produces a natural biofeedback process that encourages deep relaxation and healing for the mind and body.
With all external stimuli removed, floating allows your brain to easily shift into a theta brain wave state.
This state profoundly enhances the rejuvenation of the brain and all cells in the body, giving you a chance to truly rest and heal.
The Epsom salt dissolved in body-temperature water supports the body and allows muscle spasms to release.
Floatation increases blood flow to the joints and soft tissues to assist in healing and recovery.
EXTREME COLD FOR EXTREME RESULTS
Cryotherapy is a natural performance enhancer which speeds up recovery and allows faster repair of soft tissue. It re-routes blood flow to reduce swelling and pain, assist healing.
Localised therapy can target specific injured areas to reduce pain and improve healing. Post-treatment, a surge of endorphins is released which elevates your mood while freshly oxygenated, nutrient dense blood pumps through your body and heals the problem areas.
If you’re struggling with a long-term illness or injury cryotherapy can reduce the pain without the need for medications.
