The Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy During Recovery
The American Lung Association reports that the average individual takes about 20,000 breaths in a single day. We know that oxygen is one of the most essential elements for life, but as such a constant in our lives, it is not surprising that we take the simple act of breathing for granted. At Pearl Recovery Retreat, we’ve harnessed the powerful benefits of oxygen plays in allowing the body to thrive through Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treatment (HBOT).
How Oxygen Therapy Heals
The body needs oxygen, especially when recovering from an injury, surgery, or illness, in order to rebuild damaged cells and to strengthen the immune system. At Pearl, we are proud to offer revolutionary Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treatments in-house to give our guests the best chance at a smooth recovery.
During HBOT sessions, guests can relax in a comfortable, roomy hyperbaric chamber and breathe 100 percent medical grade oxygen. (In everyday life, we typically breathe around 21 percent oxygen.) The air pressure is also increased at least three times higher than normal air pressure to safely allow the guest’s lungs to gather in as much of the pure oxygen as possible.
Once inhaled, oxygen is delivered throughout the body by hemoglobin in the red blood cells. As the oxygenated blood travels to different parts of the body, it stimulates cell energy, releasing the substances, such as stem cells and growth factors that encourage healing.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments increases the amount of healing oxygen that can be absorbed, improving the body’s ability to heal and rebuild damaged cells.
Who Can Benefit from HBOT?
Oxygen therapy has been FDA approved for treating at least 14 different conditions, such as blood loss (anemia), crush injuries, and skin grafts. HBOT has also been found to benefit those recovering from:
- Plastic Surgery
- Foot surgery
- Sinus surgery
- Breast augmentation
- Ear, nose, and throat issues
- Shoulder surgery
- Spinal issues
- Gynecological surgery
In addition to supporting the body’s ability to recover from surgery or medical treatment, HBOT can help those who need a simple boost in energy or a chance to relax and escape from life’s stresses in a state-of-the-art, spa-like facility. Our luxurious recovery retreat offers comfort and healing with a caring staff and skilled team of professional nurses.
