Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy vs Oxygen Training

Updated: Apr 13, 2020

Oxygen is the most important nutrient we consume, and if you're facing a health challenge oxygen supplementation might be the most important thing you can do for your health!



Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy


Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves a pressurized tube or room that provides pure oxygen in air pressure levels that are up to three times higher than average. As you sit or lie in the chamber, you breath in pure oxygen so that it enters your blood and travels throughout your body, allowing for tissue repair and the restoration of normal body function. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been used for years as an effective method of treating a number of conditions. In the United States Hyperbaric oxygen requires a prescription and can be quite costly. It is often difficult to gain access to a chamber and it can be a slow process.


Oxygen Training


Oxygen training is a form of EWOT (exercise with oxygen therapy) that involves breathing higher levels of oxygen (usually 95%) during exercise in order to pump oxygen into the cells faster. Regular oxygen therapy from an oxygen concentrator involves breathing oxygen at about 5-10 LPM (liters per minute).  In order to flood the body with oxygen it will take up to 36 hours.  With Maxx O2 advanced technology the body is flooded with oxygen at a much higher rate.  This allows the same amount of oxygen to be delivered in 15 minutes. When you deliver and utilize more oxygen to your cells you:


  • Increase energy levels

  • Improve cell health

  • Experience improvement in tissue and organ function

  • Stimulate your immune system, reducing the probability of future illness

  • Reduce inflammation in the body, starting with the vascular system and joints

  • Improve mobility


Which is Right for You?


Hyperbaric oxygen and oxygen training are both fantastic options but for most people we recommend oxygen training because of its ease of use, accessibility, lower cost, accelerated benefits, and overall functionality.


In the United States Hyperbaric oxygen requires a prescription and can be quite costly. It is often difficult to gain access to a chamber and it can be a slow process. It often takes many sessions to achieve the desired results. You do not exercise in hyperbaric chambers. This means that there’s no carbon dioxide buildup to equal the additional inbound oxygen.
