Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Benefits

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy stems from the USA, where oxygen therapy is used to stimulate blood circulation and oxygenation within the body for healing and recovery. Backed by evidence-based research and data, it has been proven that the brain is highly sensitive to changes of circulating oxygen concentrations, where low or absent levels of oxygen rapidly induce unconsciousness or cause permanent brain damage. 

Oxygen therapy gives relief for both acute and chronic pain and enhance sleep quality by promoting cells regeneration and internal melatonin while increasing blood flow. Moreover, oxygen is non-toxic, non-invasive and has no side-effects.

Benefits of HBOT



HBOT can cause a wide range of cellular, biochemical and physiological changes.  HBOT may also promote healthy aging.

  1. HBOT enhances angiogenesis
  2. HBOT reduces inflammation by regulating the number and activity of extensive inflammatory cell types.
  3. HBOT enhances antioxidant defences by modulating the balance between free radicals and scavengers.
  4. HBOT interferes with the detrimental effects of cellular senescence. HBOT also plays a role in inhibiting telomere shortening, one of the major stimuli of cellular senescence.
  5. HBOT increases the number of circulating stem cells by stimulating stem cell mobilization, and changes stem cell properties by promoting proliferation and differentiation.

Telomere length is a marker of biological ageing. Our body contains telomeres, a region of repetitive DNA sequences at the end of a chromosome. Each time a cell divides, the telomeres become slightly shorter. When the telomeres become too short, the cell will die as it is no longer be able to divide successfully. 

HBOT can help with reverse ageing because it can lengthen up to 38% of our telomeres at a rate far beyond any currently available intervention of lifestyle modification. 

Moreover, research studies have proven that HBOT decreases the old cells in our bodies by 11-37% which effectively promotes regeneration of new cells! Hence, HBOT is known for reverse aging.

The Cocoon by O2genes is a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber (mHBOT). Oxygen levels and pressure in the Cocoon is 40%-50% higher than sea level. This wellness tool that immerses individuals in high levels of oxygen ensures that oxygenated blood is circulated all around our body. In high pressured oxygenated environments, our tissues are flushed with high levels of oxygen and we are able to enjoy benefits such as increased metabolism, higher energy levels, faster recovery, and more!

When an individual is exposed to high levels of oxygen, it encourages their brain to remain in deep, restorative sleep. Deep sleep helps our brains and bodies with recovery as well as memory consolidation.

On the other hand, when we are exposed to less oxygen, our brains remain in rapid-eye movement (REM) sleep. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy could be used to enhance deep sleep to ensure that individuals who tend to suffer from insomnia get enough restorative and slow-wave sleep.


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) promotes a significant increase of oxygen in blood which results in better functioning of the organism, stimulating development of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) and regulating oxidative stress. When there is an excess of oxygen in tissues and organs, a better environment is created for fertilisation to occur correctly and enhance assisted fertility treatments.


Sports Recovery


Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) may serve to provide a means of therapy to facilitate speedier resumptions to pre-injury activity levels as well as improve the short and long term prognosis of the injury (EC;, 2000).

HBOT has been reported to reduce post-injury swelling in animals, and in humans with swelling mitigated. Positive results have also been reported regarding tissue remodelling after injuries, with those involving bones, muscles and ligaments showing improved recovery. In the Nagano Winter Olympics, where sports players experiencing fatigue used hyperbaric oxygen, enabling them to continue performing in the games (Ishii et al., 2005), showing how HBOT can effectively increased recovery from fatigue.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been reported to be beneficial in terms of accelerating cell recovery and tissue repair, which are considered to be helpful for eliminating fatigue and recovering stamina. This study was performed to evaluate the efficacy of HBOT for exercise-related muscular injury. (Chen et al., 2019) Moreover, recent experimental evidence implies that pain may be decreased with intermittent to long-term exposure to hyperbaric oxygen sessions.

Cognitive Ability


A case series suggest that low pressure HBOT improves symptoms in children on the spectrum through increased oxygenation of underperfused areas of the autistic brain, reduced neuroinflammation, decreased oxidative stress, or a combination of these. 

HBOT at the pressures commonly used in children with autism (up to 1.5 atm/100% oxygen) has been reported to improve cerebral perfusion, decrease markers of inflammation and did not worsen oxidative stress markers. Most studies of HBOT in children with autism reported improvements in several behavioural domains. 

Collectively, the reviewed studies indicate that the use of HBOT in children on the spectrum, including autism, is associated with minimal adverse events and is well tolerated. HBOT is a safe and potentially an effective therapy for children with autism while further studies are warranted.
