The Undersea Oxygen Clinic, while still a champion for all Hyperbaric Oxygen can do to heal people, is currently offering training only.


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) uses high pressure oxygen to treat a variety of health conditions and diseases. Each cell in the body needs oxygen to preserve, repair, and enhance function. Breathing 100% oxygen at pressures greater than sea level increases the amount of oxygen carried by the blood. This enables oxygen to be dissolved into the hard-to-reach plasma, lymph, and cerebrospinal fluids surrounding the brain and spinal cord, providing a greater opportunity for healing. It stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in locations with reduced circulation. HBOT reduces swelling, decreases inflammation, strengthens the immune system, stimulates the release of stem cells and improves the ability of the body to fight disease and infection.

The Science

The term hyperbaric is defined as a gas at a pressure greater than normal atmospheric pressure (~15 PSI). Compared to breathing air at normal atmospheric pressure, hyperbaric oxygen will drive up to 1,200% more oxygen into the bloodstream (primarily plasma). Super-saturating the entire body with oxygen drives the regeneration of damaged tissue, strengthens the immune system, and provides the body with greater opportunity for healing by: Reversing hypoxia Acting as a signal inducer of DNA, turning on and off over 5,000 genes Stimulating the development of new blood vessels where circulation has been compromised (Angiogenesis) Promoting collagen, bone, and cartilage repair and regeneration Greatly reducing swelling and inflammation Mobilizing and stimulating an increase of stem cells within damaged tissues and in bone marrow Enhancing energy production at the mitochondrial cellular level.

HBOT is a non-invasive treatment that can help in a variety of medical conditions either as a primary or complementary therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has very few risks or side effects and may be helpful if you suffer from an inflammatory condition or a condition that may be improved when blood flow and delivery of oxygen to vital organs and tissues is optimized. Some of the benefits that can result from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy are:

  • Healing wounds, no matter where they are
  • Decreasing wound healing time through increased efficiency
  • Reducing the risk of amputation
  • Enhancing the brain’s ability to regain neurologic function (Neuroplasticity)
  • Decreasing disability
  • Reducing Pain
  • Improving quality of life
