Why choose the HBOT at Alchemy?
- Pressurised Air: The ambient air inside the HBOT Chamber is pressurised at a safe and effective 1.5 ATA. Thus, referred to as 'Hyperbaric'.
- Pressurised Oxygen: Wear an oxygen face mask that supplies extra oxygen pressurised at a safe and effective 1.5 ATA. Thus, referred to as 'Hyperbaric Oxygen'.
- Hygienic: Wear your own individual oxygen face mask.
- Comfortable: Rest inside a hard shell chamber.
What is the HBOT experience like at Alchemy?
It is comfortable in the HBOT Chamber and most people find the experience very calming as the increased oxygen has a very relaxing effect.
What is the HBOT session process?
The HBOT session duration is 60 minutes. Prior to entering the HBOT Chamber an Alchemy team member will provide an introduction. We will explain how the HBOT Chamber is pressurised and the techniques (i.e. yawning, swallowing, lightly pressing) you will use to clear you ears during pressurisation, it takes less than 5 minutes to reach 1.5 ATA pressure. Whilst in the HBOT Chamber you will be wearing your own oxygen mask that will provide pressurised oxygen for you to breathe. After the initial 5 mintues of pressurisation you can then relax, meditate, sleep or read a book (electronic devices are not allowed in chamber). It is comfortable in the HBOT Chamber and most people find the experience very relaxing or calming. Once the session time is complete it will take 3 minutes to release the pressure from the HBOT Chamber and open the door. During this time you will again need to clear you ears using the same techniques used in the beginning.
What do I bring/wear during my HBOT session?
We advise you to wear something loose and comfortable whilst in the HBOT Chamber. We can provide a robe for you to wear.
If you did not make payment online, you will also need to bring a debit or credit card, as we DO NOT ACCEPT CASH.
May I sleep during my HBOT session?
Yes, it is common to sleep or be in deep meditative states during the session. The increased oxygen has a very relaxing effect.
May I use my phone during my HBOT session?
No, we do not allow electronic devices into the HBOT Chamber. You may wish to bring a book to read instead.
How often may I have a HBOT session?
You may intially try a course of 5 sessions in close succession (either consecutive days or separated by 1-2 days, e.g. 3 per week). While the benefits can be experienced immediately, they can also be cumulative.
From then onwards, you may do your sessions less frequently on a regular basis to maintain and optimise results (e.g. once every week or 2 weeks).
May I combine my HBOT session with other sessions?
Yes, combining sessions can further enhance benefits. Recommended sequence:
- ATP CHARGER
To book your combo, please select one service at a time and allow the following total duration for each session:
- HBOT: 1 hour
- CRYO: 10 minutes
- ATP CHARGER: 20 minutes
