KISIKON OXYGEN ENRICHED PRESSURIZED SESSIONS
Pressurized oxygen sessions are performed according to a well known procedure under the guidance of experienced operators.
Help strengthen your immune system, prevent the decline of cognitive abilities and give your skin even more beautiful appearance.
The air we breathe contains only 20.9 % oxygen. When breathing pure oxygen at pressures higher than normal additional “hyperbaric” oxygen dissolves in the blood plasma greatly increasing the quantity of oxygen transferred to any tissue in the body. At pressures greater than normal, the body can incorporate more oxygen into blood cells, blood plasma, cerebral-spinal fluid, and other bodily fluids. The increased oxygen absorption experienced during oxygen enriched pressurized sessions significantly enhances the body’s ability to aid in its healing. Once a person is in the increased atmospheric pressure, the body responds by reducing inflammation. With the inflammation reduced, blood flow to cells increases, enhancing the delivery of oxygen to oxygen-deprived areas.In general, we can attribute benefits to oxygen enriched pressurized sessions that will help you improve your quality of life.
PREPARATIONS FOR THE OXYGEN SESSION
The sessions are simple and painless, performed in a comfortable 4-seater chamber KISIKON LUX equipped with multimedia.
Before the session it is necessary to make sure that:
• enter the chamber only if you confirm that you have no contraindications;
• prohibited items include: mobile phone, electronic devices, glasses, contact lenses, watches, matches and lighters, jewelry, dentures, prostehetics;
• prohibited products include: lotions, hairspray, hair products and hair extensions, makeup, perfume, deodorant, nail polish, piercings;
• you have eaten only light food, without carbonated and alcoholic beverages;
• no outside food or drinks are allowed;
• you are dressed in suitable clothes prepared for you by the operator;
• you are familiar with all instructions from the operator;
• please inform your therapist if any of your medications have changed since your last visit.
HOW DO OXYGEN SESSIONS WORK?
The oxygen sessions are painless and non-invasive, each of them lasts 1 to 2 hours. Your treatment time is predetermined by your health condition and a specific protocol. You simply sit or recline in one of our chambers where pure, odorless 100 % medical grade oxygen is administred throughout the entire chamber. During your session you may feel your ears pressurize similar to what you might experience in an airplane during take-off or landing.
Oxygen session utilizes higher than normal (atmospheric) pressure. During therapy one does not breathe the usual 21% oxygen, but pure oxygen through an NRB mask (Non-re-breather mask).
In the chamber the atmospheric pressure is up to twice that of the ambient pressure, which is why we also breathe twice the concentration of oxygen, than we normaly would be breathing in the environment or 9.5 times more then we would be breathing natural air in the environment, which is why effects on our health and well-being are improved.
In case you have a specific health conditions that you are trying to alleviate with regeneration sessions, your doctor will recommend how many sessions you need, and our technician will perform them exactly as instructed by your doctor.
HISTORY OF OXYGEN SESSIONS
In fact, the concept of Hyperbaric Medicine has been around since the 1800’s. Since then, hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been used around the world to treat a wide variety of medical conditions successfully.
In 1937 hyperbaric oxygen treatments were first used for decompression sickness but it was not until 1956 that interest in hyperbaric medicine heated up. In Amsterdam that year, Dr. I Boerema reported that hyperbaric oxygen was a therapeutic aid in cardiopulmonary surgery. Shortly after his colleague’s discovery, W.H. Brummelkamp, published a discovery of his own: hyperbaric therapy inhibited anaerobic infections.
International interest rekindled due to the publishing of reports in 1962 detailing the enormous benefits of HBOT in the treatment of carbon monoxide poisoning. These discoveries and more pushed hyperbaric medicine into the modern era. Installations of hyperbaric units quickly began at some of the most revered and prestigious medical centers in the United States. A few of these early adopters were Harvard Children’s Hospital, New York Sinai Hospital, Duke University, and Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles.
The adventage of advanced imaging technologies such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) have provided researchers unprecedented insights into the actions and mechanisms of hyperbaric oxygenation and its effect on tissue. It’s no coincidence that the most significant, documented advancements in Hyperbaric Medicine have emerged recently to a great part due to pre- and post- hyperbaric therapy evaluation using these high-tech tools.
As hyperbaric research continues, scientists are finding that neurological conditions, stroke and brain injuries, all previously considered to have a poor prognosis, respond well to oxygen sessions.
Successful hyperbaric treatments with hyperbaric for conditions as diverse as autism, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation toxicity in cancer patients have growing numbers of researchers, physicians, patients and their families trusting in the power and efficacy of oxygen sessions.
