What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is non-invasive, relaxing and healing

greatly increases oxygen concentration in all body tissues What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy? | Tory Urban Retreat

The process involves breathing 95% pure oxygen in a pressurized pod. The air pressure is increased to 50% higher than normal air pressure at 1.5ATM. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.

Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body. This helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.

Sessions within the pod are relaxing and comfortable.  You can read a book, listen to a podcast or audio book, watch a movie or simply sleep. 

It is important to note that the use of a face mask will enable you to obtain much higher levels of oxygen during your session - hence, a more beneficial treatment. You can purchase a reusable mask from our reception which you can take it home & bring back for each treatment.
