What are the sensations associated with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is generally painless and without any discomfort. In fact, it is enjoyable and relaxing to the point where we might even have to wake you up at the end of a session.

At the beginning of the treatment, when the pressure is increased, as well as at the end when the pressure is decreased and brought to normal, you will feel a pressure change in your ears similar to that which you experience in an aircraft.

Prior to treatments we will teach you how to equalize the pressure changes in your ears. Fullness and popping in your ears upon change in pressure will probably feel similar to that experienced when flying or going over a mountain range. During the rest of the treatment you can read or snooze if you wish. Most treatments take about 2 hours altogether.
