We have two oxygen chambers that are operated on a daily basis at varying times throughout the day.
Oxygen is essential to every one of the tissues in the body and any tissue injury requires oxygen for healing. Recent research at the University of Dundee has shown that, in the inflammation that is typical of MS, the transport of oxygen is severely limited by tissue swelling.
Damage to the nervous system caused by MS clearly cannot be prevented by oxygen therapy. However, in the same way the body normally heals itself using oxygen from the air, additional oxygen can extend the body’s ability to heal and can limit some of the damage which the disease can cause.
Breathing oxygen under pressure causes the dilated and leaky blood vessels in MS to constrict back to normal size and reduce the swelling. At the same time, more oxygen is delivered into the bloodstream, increasing the amount available to help undertake repair.
Sessions run Monday to Friday at varying times. Please contact Sarah Williamson to discuss membership and to book a taster session.
