Oxygen is the elixir of life. It is not merely a life-sustaining gas but a vital agent that fuels cellular activities, ensuring the proper functioning of organs, and maintaining overall well-being. Its significance transcends mere respiration, extending into the realms of healing and rejuvenation. As both pharmaceuticals and skincare industries delve deeper into the potential of oxygen-mimicking elements, the spotlight falls on Hyperbaric Oxygenation (HBOT) as a natural and promising avenue to harness oxygen’s inherent powers for health and vitality.
The profound role of oxygen in our bodies cannot be overstated. From cellular respiration to energy production, oxygen is indispensable. Pharmaceuticals have actively researched and developed drugs and therapies that simulate oxygen’s effects, seeking to bolster wound healing, alleviate inflammation, and support the management of various medical conditions. Concurrently, skincare brands have incorporated oxygen-mimicking ingredients into their products, aiming to enhance skin health, appearance, and vitality by leveraging the beneficial effects of oxygen.
However, amidst these strides, a compelling question arises: why not nourish the body from within, promoting its inherent responses through a natural and non-invasive method like HBOT?
Within the hyperbaric chamber at OxyGeneration, individuals breathe nearly 100% oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure. The pressure is just as important as the level of oxygen. Using 2ATA of pressure, the equivalent of being 10 meters under sea water, facilitates the bloodstream to transport over ten times more oxygen to tissues and organs. It helps deliver oxygen to areas that generally struggle to get oxygen due to circulation issues, compromised blood flow or chronic inflammation. This heightened oxygenation has a profoundly positive impact on the body, chiefly by fortifying the immune system and mitigating inflammation and pain.
Chronic inflammation serves as a silent antagonist, exacerbating symptoms and contributing to the progression of numerous health conditions. The insidious nature of inflammation underscores the importance of addressing it. Herein lies the potential of HBOT. By significantly reducing inflammation and boosting the immune response, hyperbaric oxygenation emerges as a multifaceted approach offering relief and support for a spectrum of health issues. Its capacity to alleviate chronic inflammation helps alleviate symptoms and enhance the overall quality of life for individuals grappling with various conditions, ranging from autoimmune disorders to neurological ailments. Reduction of chronic pain and inflammation following sessions of HBOT can improve one’s quality of life immensely.
In simple terms, oxygen serves as the lifeblood of our existence. It is the essential catalyst that sustains life, invigorates our vitality, and aids in maintaining optimal health. Hyperbaric Oxygenation stands as a beacon, ensuring a consistent and heightened supply of oxygen to nourish, energise, and heal the body from within. Embracing the natural power of oxygen through HBOT eliminates the need for mere mimicry, offering a pathway towards holistic well-being.
The ability of HBOT in mitigating chronic inflammation and fortifying the immune system underscores its relevance in modern healthcare.
Hyperbaric Oxygenation isn’t a recent discovery; it’s been available for years. However, in Ireland, limited access to hyperbaric chambers has hindered people’s recoveries, contributing to a concerning trend of escalating limb amputations, long-term prescriptions of pharmaceuticals and longer recovery times. At OxyGeneration, the results speak volumes. They have witnessed phenomenal outcomes where seemingly irreparable wounds have healed, sparing individuals from amputations and drastically improving their quality of life. Individuals that have suffered chronic pain and inflammation for years have found relief because the required fuel, i.e., oxygen, was delivered to the compromised areas of the body. Moreover, Irish Life Health Insurance’s coverage of HBOT sessions at OxyGeneration underscores the treatment’s credibility and success.

“OxyGeneration saved my left foot! In December 2019 boiling water fell on my foot and resulted in 3rd degree burns on all my toes. Following a week’s stay in hospital I went home to await my fate as the hospital said that I would probably lose all my toes. I attended OxyGeneration for about 25 sessions over 2 months. Twice weekly visits to the Burns clinic for dressings came with comments of amazement from nurses on the regeneration of the tissue around all of my toes. In the end I only had to have the tip of my second toe removed. I firmly believe that OxyGeneration saved my left foot, and I would encourage people with burn injuries or non-healing wounds to attend for treatment at OxyGeneration. It definitely changed my life.” Ivor – Attended for 3rd degree burns & to avoid amputation.
“As a patient with chronic rheumatoid arthritis, I find the Winters in the West of Ireland particularly difficult. The wet and damp climate plays havoc with my joints causing more pain and less mobility. After starting my treatment with OxyGeneration I am happy to report a big improvement in my health. Normally climbing stairs was a big effort for me puffing and panting with one step at a time. Now I can walk up with ease. My sleeping pattern has also improved. I’m now having pain free nights. After 5 sessions I was delighted to have a long walk on the promenade in Salthill, my first walk in months. I can highly recommend for young and old.” Loretta – attended for chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis
“I was carrying an injury at a very important time of the season and I feel that the sessions in the chamber helped me recover quicker to get through the last few games. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to speed up recovery from an injury or to improve performance in sport.” Conor O’Keefe – Galway United Defender
“I attended OxyGeneration towards the end of the season last year. It was at an important period of the season where we had a build-up of fixtures and didn’t have a lot of time to recover between games. I found the chamber massively beneficial for recovery which was vital to make sure I was fresh going into these games. I would definitely recommend the chamber for anyone looking to enhance their recovery.” David Hurley Galway United Midfielder
“Very few treatments are available for long Covid (LC), a condition that is thought to represent brain inflammation, hypoperfusion of the brain due to micro clots, and certain autoimmune processes that are ongoing post COVID-19 infection. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown in a number of similar neurological conditions to provide benefits to patients. Preliminary peer reviewed studies have been published showing the benefit of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for Long Covid patients. Personal observations by myself on patients who have used HBOT who have suffered from LC have shown benefit from this therapy.
As there are no current recommendations from the HSE on how to manage LC in Ireland, except for ‘time’ (time does not work ) and there are many HBOT centres in Ireland that are currently underutilised, it would make sense to offer this treatment modality to support LC patients in Ireland.” Professor Jack Lambert – UCD School of Medicine
“I was referred to OxyGeneration by Professor Lynch because I had radiation damage after having radiotherapy for two years. I had several side effects that thankfully have ceased since I started hyperbaric oxygenation. After my 12th session I really noticed a positive change in my symptoms which has been a massive relief to my life. I can’t say enough good things about OxyGeneration and how it has improved my quality of life!” Seamus – Attended for Post Radiation Damage
