How to Make the Most of Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy with Lifestyle Changes

Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be a fantastic tool to help the body recover and repair because it provides the energy needed for the body to help heal itself. It is no magic bullet though, so in order to aid in that healing process, there are many positive lifestyle changes outside of the chamber that can be put into place to help yield optimal results that last. The true healing potential of our mild hyperbaric oxygen chambers happen when our clients focus on the big picture.

Below are 5 tips to help you get the most out of Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

  1. Sleep! Getting those ZZZZZzzz’s is essential. Our body cannot repair without rest. Try to focus on these 2 goals: go to bed early and get 7-9 sleep hours per night. Short naps are also encouraged! Chamber Tip: Many of our clients know that a nap in the chamber can be some of the deepest sleep they have experienced. So as you enter the chamber, reach for an extra pillow instead of your iPhone.
  1. Start with Water (and then keep sipping it all day long). Did you know that your body is detoxing in our mild hyperbaric oxygen chamber?  In order to keep flushing those toxins out, hydration is essential. Try starting the day off with a tall glass of water with juice from half a lemon. Lemon helps rehydrate the body and promotes digestion and detoxification.
  1. Get Moving! Regular exercise encourages circulation of the blood and lymph system. Exercise also enhances digestion and lubricates joints.  But don’t go overboard while you are doing your chamber sessions, especially if you have a chronic health condition. Chamber Tip: Chamber time is a great time to try out some gentle stretches!

  1. Go Organic! Free of harmful chemicals, bursting with more nutrition, taste, and sustainable sustenance, organic eating is the way to go! Want to have more control over your diet but don’t know where to start? Try a small indoor herb garden. Mint, basil, thyme and rosemary all do well indoors.
  1. Exfoliate Your Skin! Skin brushing and oil massage helps to exfoliate the toxins from your skin and refresh circulation. Plus, it feels great and keeps your skin soft and looking youthful! Chamber Tip: Searching for the Fountain of Youth? Just pop in a Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber to experience the collagen boosting and skin soothing effects. Our clients really do have that healthy glow- inside and out!
