Performance Enhancement

Sportspeople, dancers and fitness fans are often looking for ways of enhancing their physical performance, endurance and resilience to injury. CEOs, managers and entrepreneurs search for methods of improving their focus, memory and mental clarity, and optimising their performance in business. And biohackers use all kinds of techniques to maximise their potential and get the most from their body and mind.

But, although it makes many forms, the overarching concept of performance enhancement is the same for everyone. It’s about striving to excel at whatever it is you do.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a way of giving your body 10-15 times more oxygen than normal, and is a well-known method in enhancing performance among sportsmen. Here are some specific examples of how it works and why:

  • A sportsperson’s performance is limited by the amount of energy their body produces. HBOT helps boost energy and promotes faster recovery from fatigue by increasing the amount of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the body. ATP is the body’s battery, the molecule that keeps everything going.
  • Injury, illness and generally diminished physical health also limit a sportsperson’s performance. HBOT accelerates tissue repair by hastening the growth of new blood vessels. In other words, HBOT helps to improve the body’s capacity to heal itself.
  • The performance of executives and entrepreneurs is limited by lack of sleep, poor concentration and ‘brain fog’. By flooding the brain with much more oxygen than it gets normally, HBOT helps optimise your mental faculties, promoting sharper clarity and focus, better memory and improved performance in business.
  • HBOT users report feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and ready to take on the world, which is testament to the power of oxygen.

Big league sports stars use HBOT

Countless professional sportspersons are openly using HBOT to reduce their injury recovery time, improve their endurance and resilience, and boost their performance on the pitch. Wayne Rooney used HBOT to help speed up the healing of his broken foot before taking part in the World Cup. Use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy is also common practice for NFL superstars such as Steve Weatherford to help improve their physical conditioning and speed up healing of any injuries sustained during games. So if you’re a professional footballer, athlete, dancer, fitness fan, biohacker, CEO, manager or entrepreneur and you’re looking for ways of enhancing your performance, see what Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can do for you.

How does HBOT work?

HBOT is a simple, pain-free and non-invasive way of giving your body more oxygen. It involves entering a private, purpose-built, state-of-the-art chamber and breathing in pure oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure.

Most clinics operate a multi-person chamber offering only 1.4-1.6 times the normal atmospheric pressure. Here at the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Centre in Chelsea, London, we offer single-person chambers up to 2 times the normal pressure. This allows patients to read, relax, meditate or listen to music without disturbance or interruption, while the pressure conditions increase your oxygen intake by 10-15 times.

Although HBOT having been used for many years as a therapeutic intervention for a variety of indications and boosting performance, the evidence for its use is not proven by “randomized prospective controlled clinical experiment or trial” which is considered to be the strongest form of scientific evidence by conventional medical standards. 

It is always recommended that clients visit their GP or Consultant if there is any medical problem before commencing HBOT. Our HBOT expert, Robert Pender regularly consults GPs and medical consultants or relevant members (MDs) of International Hyperbaric Medical Association when required whilst client’s confidentiality will be respected and protected throughout. 

In accordance with UK and EU legislation we confirm that there is no intention implied or otherwise that HBOT is given so with the intention of it being a cure, diagnosis or as a preventative for any disease. Any references, studies or testimonials on this website do not imply that similar results will occur when the same therapy is experienced by another.
