Oxygen Therapy for Wound Healing


Oxygen Therapy offers a safe, natural, and efficient treatment for non-healing wounds. Each treatment session is easy, painless, and even relaxing. If you’ve experienced a troublesome wound or infection that can’t heal sufficiently on its own, our Oxygen Therapy service is a healing option that can safely accelerate and enhance your healing process.

Oxygen Therapy can help with the Following:  

  1. Infections

Most infections cause redness, fever, pain, and delayed healing. A few of the most common types of wound infections include Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Oxygen Therapy can help fight these infections by enhancing the white blood cells’ ability to fight bacteria, build new connective tissues, and improve organ function.

  1. Diabetic Wound Care

Since the circulation problems associated with diabetes slow the movement of red blood cells, essential tissues become deprived of oxygen. Without enough oxygen, cells struggle to produce the energy they need to block bacteria, synthesize new collagen, or regenerate and repair after injury. Inhaling the concentrated flow of oxygen provided through regular Oxygen Therapy makes it possible to overcome oxygen deficiencies and stimulate a more effective healing process.

What are the Benefits of Oxygen Therapy?

Activating the body’s natural healing processes and reviving damaged tissue are the most significant benefits of Oxygen Therapy sessions.

  • Reducing pain and inflammation
  • Having an antibacterial effect
  • Heal quicker and better
  • Improving mitochondrial function (Mitochondria is often referred to as the powerhouses of the cell, they help convert energy we take from food into energy that the cell can use)
