Under the aegis of Dr. Eric Serrano, MD, the staff at Hyperbaric Therapy guides patients through new and innovative treatments. While its roster of services includes cryotherapy and far-infrared sauna sessions, perhaps the most intriguing offering is its namesake treatment.
During hyperbaric therapy, a trained technician mans the computer system that controls the environment within an enclosed chamber. While the client rests inside, the technician adjusts the chamber's pressure, while slowly replacing its air with 100% oxygen. (By way of contrast, the air humans normally breathe usually contains only about 21% oxygen.) During the 60-minute treatment, the ambient environment does the rest of the work, feeding the body exactly what it needs to fight inflammation, grow new cells, and boost circulation.
