The Oxygen Studio

Mild Hyperbaric Treatment

what is HBOT?

For more than 200 years, hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been used as a regenerative health treatment and has helped improve the overall well-being of people. Lack of oxygen is one of the most common reasons behind the appearance of numerous illnesses and cell damage.

HBOT utilises higher than normal (atmospheric) pressure. During therapy, one does not breathe the usual 21% oxygen, but 95% pure oxygen through an oxygen mask at a pressure of 1.3 allowing you to breathe twice the concentration of oxygen. You would be breathing pure oxygen: 5 times more than you would be breathing normal air in the environment, which is why the effects on our health and well-being are even better.

Boosts collagen production

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is crucial to the health of your skin, muscles and other organs. HBOT increases the quality of the oxygen supplied to open wounds, supporting healthy cell growth and tissue repair.

Builds and repairs blood cells

Increased oxygenation promotes angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels from the existing vascular system. New blood vessels support healthy tissue growth by delivering nutrients to starved cells through the oxygen-rich blood circulating through the body.

Increased blood flow and circulation

HBOT both increases the oxygenation of the blood and improves its circulation to tissue that may have been oxygen deprived. This therapy has also been successful in reversing blood poisonings, like carbon monoxide and cyanide poisoning.

Alleviates oxidative stress

HBOT can improve mitochondrial function, cellular metabolism, and reduce apoptosis. It can also alleviate oxidative stress, which is a major contributor to many chronic diseases.

What to Expect?

Relax, sit, lie, sleep, or work on your phone in the comfortable chamber. Sessions last 60 – 90 min. Your ears may feel a little blocked as the pressure increases, like in an aeroplane or the mountains. Simple swallowing or chewing gum will “pop” the ears back to normal.
Your blood carries the extra oxygen throughout the body, infusing the injured tissues that need more oxygen so they can begin healing. When a session is complete, you may feel lightheaded. Mild side effects include claustrophobia, fatigue, and headaches.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is not for everyone. It should not be used by people who have had recent ear surgery or ear trauma, a cold or fever, or certain types of lung disease.

The Benefits of HBOT

Our Story

In 2019, I was diagnosed with Stage 1B cervical cancer which turned my world upside down. In 2020 during the first Covid-19 lockdown, I underwent a radical hysterectomy which included the removal of 2 lymph glands and a 5cm tumour from the wall of my cervix. A month after the hysterectomy, I returned to my gynaecologist for a follow up appointment and found that the cancer had returned. I was sent for a PET scan which revealed that I had been previously misdiagnosed and actually had Stage 4B Cervical.

  1. Due to the advanced stage of cancer, my oncologist decided to treat me with palliative care. My family and I started looking into alternative medicine to assist in the fight against cancer.

After much research, I decided to start mild hyperbaric Oxygen therapy 30 days prior to starting chemotherapy. Every day, Monday to Sunday, I traveled 50km to receive 60 to 90 minutes of mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Once the chemotherapy started I continued the HBOT every day until the chemotherapy course was completed. After my chemotherapy was completed, I reduced the HBOT sessions to 3-5 times a week.  At my follow-up appointment, another CAT scan showed that I was now cancer-free, but because the cancer was so aggressive and returned so quickly in the past, my doctor scheduled me for radiation therapy. In early 2022, in addition to 28 days of radiation, I also underwent 3 brachytherapy and 3 more chemo treatments. During the entire period of the various cancer therapies, the HBOT helped with the treatment of cancer, radiation burns, and chemotherapy side effects, and boosted my immune system. 

I managed to continue to run my business and complete my day-to-day responsibilities. I was tired by midday but felt revitalized after a dive in the chamber. A close friend of mine discussed the treatment with her son Frank, and after meeting with me, Frank (now my business partner) and I decided to open up our own Hyperbaric Oxygen Studio in Johannesburg South to offer this amazing treatment at an affordable rate. 

I have been for many types of treatments, but this has been the most effective, low-risk treatment I have had.

 Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy delivers amazing results in 3 main fields, (Medical, Sports Recovery and Beauty).
