PWOT – Pressure While on Oxygen Therapy:
Pressure While on Oxygen Therapy is also called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Pressurizing an oxygen chamber generates 1.3 atmospheres (ATM) which is the equivalent of the external pressure your body would experience by being 11.5 feet under water. Due to this pressure, you breathe in 95% pure oxygen, which permeates and penetrates deep into all the body’s muscles, tissues, organs, bones, joints, nervous system, and brain. These portions of the body can often be oxygen starved, so with this pure oxygen penetrating into your body, the body can now experience the healing effects of increased oxygen levels at the cellular level. Since the oxygen is pumped into the bloodstream under pressure, it remains in the blood longer (eg. like carbonated bubbles remaining in your soda even after the lid has been opened). The benefits of these hyperbaric oxygen treatments can last for weeks and months. See additional information on the last page.
IWOT- Infrared While on Oxygen Therapy:
The same benefits achieved by breathing pure ox
ygen are enhanced by mildly heating the body above 98.6 degrees. This patented technology of infrared domes works by penetrating tissues and heating the core versus superficial heating (ex. infrared saunas). Increasing our core temperature is a defense mechanism our body uses to stimulate our immune system into action when we have an infection or virus. By increasing our core temperature, we create a condition called hyperthermia. It is the presence of heat and increased oxygen which allows for optimal stimulation and metabolic function of our immune system’s natural killer cells (Macrophages, T & B lymphocytes).
By focusing the infrared heat to a particular area in your body, we increase blood flow to that area. This increased blood flow carries the hyper-oxygenated blood, and any increased vitamins and minerals the blood may be carrying, to the area of the body most in need of healing. On a cellular level, the increased presence of heat, oxygen, vitamins and minerals allows for maximization of metabolic rate and immune system function.
Detoxification & Immuno-Boosting:
- Far infrared heat penetrates deep through the skin and into the muscles,
- blood vessels, nerves, joints and bones.
- Relieves tension, pressure and pain.
- Expands blood vessels to carry toxins away.
- Reduces inflammation and brings oxygen, vitamins and minerals to damaged muscles.
In addition, infrared domes with oxygen make the synovial fluid in joints and discs healthier. The joints are lubricated and nourished by an enzyme found in synovial fluid and if this enzyme is out of sync, the fluid may damage the cartilage around the joints. The far infrared waves emitted help balance the enzyme in the joint spaces.
LDWOT – Lymphatic Drainage While on Oxygen Therapy:
This treatment uses synchronized, alternating pulses of vibrating energy on the body. It moves stagnant pools of lymph toward the nodal groups of the groin, abdomen and axilla. These nodal groups remove the waste products, abhorrent cells/viruses and chemical toxins while returning filtered purified fluids to the heart where it rejoins the systemic circulation.
The presence of increased levels of oxygen in the nodal groups, as well as the synchronized alternating pulses, helps the body work at maximum capacity. Since there is no direct manual manipulation of the lymph node groups, there are few contraindications.
Follow lymphatic drainage sessions with Aqua Chi For added detoxification and elimination!
ACWOT – Aqua Chi While on Oxygen Therapy:
The Aqua Chi is a revolutionary hydro-therapy detoxification treatment that combines the life-giving properties of water with a high-frequency, bio-electric charge. This process enhances and amplifies the body’s own ability to heal itself. Your meridians are permeated and re-aligned back to their original strength and placement. This occurs through the electrical fields emanating from the Aqua Chi’s negative ion generator. Since our bodies are 90% water, the Aqua Chi drains polluting toxins and chemicals through the natural channels of the feet into the water. In combination with oxygen, you will maximize the riddance of the many destructive poisons contracted through improper diet, environmental pollution and stress.
EWOT – Exercise While on Oxygen Therapy (Coordinated with your trainer; by prescription only).
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the medicine of the future. This therapy has the ability to harness, concentrate, and deliver the fundamental energy of oxygen. This treatment pushes oxygen deep into the tissues and individual cells of the body to accelerate healing and promote good health.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been implicated (not FDA approved) in having an effect on the following conditions:
- Enhancing mood & energy
- Energizes mind (depression)
- Relaxes the body (sleep patterns)
- Anti -aging (skin)
- Detoxification of the body ( alcohol, drugs, smoking, x-rays)
- Enhances the elimination of waste products and toxins (lungs)
- Enhances fertility
- Erectile dysfunction
- Immune modulation (enhances bodies self defense mechanisms by stimulating the lymphatic system)
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Lyme Disease
- Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Arthritis and joint, cartilage, and/or disc problems
- Fibromyalgia and/or chronic pain
- Multiple Sclerosis & brain injury
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Coronary Artery Disease
- Macular degeneration and/or Retinopathy
- Wound healing
- Poor circulation and/or diabetic ulcers
