Unlock the Power of Enhanced Oxygenation
Welcome to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), a non-invasive treatment that significantly increases your body’s oxygen levels. HBOT achieves this by using controlled pressure in a hyperbaric chamber and elevating the oxygen concentration to around 90-95%, in contrast to the ambient air’s 21%. In just one session, it can boost your bloodstream’s oxygen levels by over 1000%.
Pure Oxygen: A Fresh Approach to Healing
Oxygen plays a crucial role in our body’s vitality, powering the energy production process in our cells. Within tiny organelles called mitochondria, oxygen assists in converting nutrients from digestion into usable energy known as ATP. After a session, your body is enriched with free-flowing oxygen in your plasma, allowing it to reach even the most inflamed areas, unlike oxygen bound to red blood cells. This supports the body’s healing and regeneration process.
Oxygen makes up approx. 65% of the human body and acts as an energy source for cells. Many factors such as stress, lifestyle, and some unavoidable medical conditions can create low saturation of oxygen and it can turn into hypoxia. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a proven remedy for meeting the oxygen deficiency of the human body. A higher amount of oxygen dose in a sophisticated environment can help in supporting health issue allowing the body to recover faster.
The Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Experience
Imagine stepping into a rejuvenating oxygen spa for your body. Inside the hyperbaric oxygen chamber, you’ll be immersed in pure, pressurised oxygen—a substantial boost to your body’s natural healing abilities.
In our daily lives, oxygen is essential for healing and thriving. However, sometimes our bodies require an extra push. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy takes you to a whole new level by increasing the air pressure around you. This supercharges your body with more oxygen, accelerating wound healing, reducing inflammation, combating infections, and more.
Relax, meditate, sleep, read and even work* in the comfort of the chamber, knowing that one of our specially trained team members will always be on hand to ensure that you are comfortable and reassured and that you get the most benefit out of your “dive”.
Think of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as your secret healing weapon, with oxygen as your ally on the path to improved health. This is your opportunity to experience the future of healing, here and now.
Your blood carries the extra oxygen through your body in the plasma, accelerating your natural healing process, helping to reduce inflammation, boosting the production of white blood cells that fight infection and speeding up recovery.
Simply Oxygen do not recommend that HBOT be used as a replacement for conventional medicine, however it has proved to be a valuable form of complementary medicine for existing health conditions. Simply Oxygen recommends consulting your GP for a diagnosis prior to any treatment.
WE NEED OXYGEN TO THRIVE NOT JUST SURVIVE
We use oxygen to release energy from our body’s batteries called Mitochondria, this energy is not just used to function (move, talk etc) but also to heal the body. Often when we have a lack of oxygen the following things will happen to our body.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Research
HBOT can assist with the healing of chronic illnesses, enhance general health and well-being and help to optimise sporting performances.
here is growing scientific evidence from around the world showing the potential benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Below we have highlighted research and trials from around the globe highlighting some of the fields that HBOT can be used to support recovery. Please note that whilst many of these conditions have had trials and research completed, in the most these trials are not large randomised control studies.
Ability to work using a phone or laptop will depend on the chamber being used.
Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy
Sales and Rental: Chambers can be single person or multi person (up to 6 or 8 person) if required. We have sit down, lay down, wheelchair accessible, extra large options for 7ft tall basketball players are also available. Pressure of the chambers is variable dependant on chamber style and requirements. For our soft chambers that go to lower pressures we have them in stock all year round, hard chambers are custom built (12 weeks from order to delivery).

This will be dependant on the treatment plan that is prescribed for you post consultation with one of the team, however as a rule of thumb, sessions are 30 mins, 60 mins or 90 mins and the most common duration is 60 minute per session at full pressure however all sessions also include a pressurisation and depressurisation time of approx. 12-14 mins.
For an average 60 minute session you should expect to be with us for approx 1 hr 15 minutes.
This will be dependant on what you have come in looking for support with. Our expert team will assess your needs and come back to you with an optimal plan for supporting your requirements, what number of sessions and at what frequency would be optimal for yourself.
We do not advise anyone who is pregnant to undergo hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is generally considered to be extremely safe and is usually well tolerated with few side effects. While uncommon risks of the treatment include:
- Oxygen toxicity
- Congestion and pressure of the sinus and ear
- Temporary near sightedness
- Middle ear injuries / barotrauma of the ear
To ensure the risks are minimal at Simply Oxygen we have high levels of training for staff, extremely clear guidelines on usage of chambers for home use and an exemplary safety record.
Yes, children as young as 6 months can use HBOT, please speak to our team about this, in some circumstances parents / guardians will be required to do the treatment with the child (this is age dependant).
Some of our customers will relax and rest their eyes, whilst some meditate or do breathing exercises, you can also listen to music, audio books or a podcast, at the end of the day the choice is yours.
No, the majority of our customers find the experience to be relaxing and enjoyable. On pressurisation and depressurisation, you will experience ear equalisation the same as being at altitude in the mountains or taking off or landing in a plane. Should you feel pressure that is uncomfortable that you cannot clear yourself then our operators will help you clear the pressure by manually reducing pressure so that your session is enjoyable and comfortable.
This will depend on what you have come in looking for support with, once you have spoken to one of the consultation team they will give you and indication of how many sessions and how often you would need to come in.
HBOT is a safe and non-invasive treatment with very few side effects or contraindications. The risks will be discussed with you prior to treatment and prior to you reviewing and signing our consent forms.
Yes HBOT is covered by some insurers for some conditions however at present in the UK not that many, please refer back to your insurance company directly to see if they will be willing to cover this.
Our advice is to wear light cotton clothing avoiding cosmetics, perfumes, hair spray / deodorants and jewellery. Pre and post treatment it is not advised to have alcohol in your system and it is also advised not to have nicotine or caffeine as both of these cause constriction of blood vessels which may reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.
Simply Oxygen do not recommend that HBOT be used as a replacement for conventional medicine and note that it is not provided for the purpose of treatment of disease, disorder, or injury, but as a complementary treatment to alleviate a range of symptoms and support for recovery and wellbeing.
Individuals should always consult with their own GP about treatment option as well as risks and benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as HBOT may not be appropriate for every individual and their specific condition. Individual results may vary and there are no guarantees of outcome.
