Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment which enhances the body's natural healing processes by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. 

Simply Oxygen

Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. With HBOT, oxygen is dissolved into all of the body's fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone.

Faster Healing

This way, extra oxygen can permeate all damaged tissues and the body can support its own natural healing process. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduces swelling and allows new blood vessels to grow rapidly.

"A simple, non-invasive treatment"

Ontario HBOT




Greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria

Reduces swelling and inflammation throughout the entire body

Enhances the bodies natural healing processes

Dissolves into all of the body's fluids, plasma, central nervous system, lympth, and bone 

Oxygen is carried to areas where circulation is blocked or diminished

Increases the growth rate of new blood vessels and nerve endings

Middle ear injuries, including leaking fluid and eardrum rupture, due to increased air pressure.

Lung collapse caused by air pressure changes (barotrauma)

Seizures as a result of too much oxygen (oxygen toxicity) in your central nervous system

We are Proud...

that after 10 years operating performing over 40,000 hyperbaric treatments, none of our patients have ever experienced any of the described risks.
Knowledge, experience, and dedicated staff is the perfect recipe for a safe environment at Ontario HBOT.




Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a very safe procedure. Complications are rare, however there are potential risks. 

Healing Accelerated

Expedited Recovery

Hyperbaric oxygen has several specific biological actions which can enhance healing processes. These include: 

  • Hyper-oxygenation of tissue

  • Vasoconstriction

  • Down regulation of inflammatory cytokines

  • Up-regulation of growth factors

  • Antibacterial effects

  • Leukocyte effects

HBOT is an excellent adjunct therapy, as part of an overall treatment plan. 



The air you are breathing right now is 21% oxygen, 78% nitrogen, and other mixed gases. During HBOT, you are breathing 99.993% pure medical grade oxygen. 

Over time, highly oxygenated blood vessels start going through a process called angiogenesis, where new blood vessels begin forming from pre-existing vessels formed in the earlier stage of vasculogenesis.

In addition, HBOT increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. This increase temporarily restores normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection.
