Tlenoterapia Kraków

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used in the treatment of many different diseases. Thanks to sessions in the oxygen chamber, convalescence time is significantly shortened, and patients recover much faster.

The hyperbaric chamber is a completely tight room designed specifically for the needs of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Oxygen therapy as a highly effective treatment method uses the unique properties of pure oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure. The pressure in the oxygen chamber can be up to 3 times higher than atmospheric pressure.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is recommended for the treatment of many different diseases, because it is an extremely effective method of supplying oxygen to the body’s tissues. Information widely available in scientific literature and on professional websites confirms that oxygen therapy is a sensational method of rehabilitation and regeneration for each cell of the patient’s body. Under normal conditions, the supply of oxygen to the body depends on the proper functioning of the blood supply system of a specific part of the body. In a hyperbaric chamber, oxygen acquires a special property of penetrating even into unblooded body tissues. An increase in oxygen levels is also found in the blood, lymph and cerebrospinal fluid. Thanks to this, the treatment heals both locally and generally. A patient undergoing treatment in an oxygen chamber breathes pure oxygen in lying position. During therapy, it is possible to feel a slight discomfort reminiscent of the feeling that accompanies us when taking off or landing an airplane.

There are single or multi-person hyperbaric chambers, so before signing up for the procedure it is worth asking for information about what type of chamber the therapy will be carried out. The hyperbaric oxygen therapy itself lasts about 60 minutes. Before the session in the oxygen chamber, you should undress to underwear or a swimsuit, or you can stay in a T-shirt and shorts. Be sure to remove all sharp objects such as watch and jewelry. After entering the hyperbaric chamber, the pressure gradually increases until the required value is reached, and then it remains constant throughout the rest of the procedure.

To achieve the best results, regular treatments are recommended. The time and number of treatments as well as the pressure are adjusted individually to the patient’s needs.


The city of Krakow is at the forefront when it comes to offering safe and non-invasive medical treatments available in the private sector. Despite the fact that oxygen therapy is a pleasant and relaxing procedure, it is possible to experience delicate side effects such as headaches or general fatigue caused by staying in the hyperbaric chamber for too long.
