Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Preparation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Preparation


At Aalto Hyperbaric, our treatments are safe, painless, and non-invasive. However, you should be aware that the increased air in the chamber can create a heavy sensation in your ears, much like when you take off in an airplane. Our technicians are with you every step of the way, though, and can show you a variety of techniques to eliminate any discomfort.

Still, there are a few things you can do on your own before your hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible. Here are some helpful tips:

Shower and abstain from using perfumes and deodorants during your hyperbaric oxygen treatment. Please leave your wigs and jewelry at home as well. Keep your body as clean and natural as possible.

Keep your body healthy at least a couple weeks before your HBOT treatment. Alcohol and carbonated beverages should be avoided for at least four weeks prior to HBOT.

Put the tobacco away. If you are a smoker, try to stop smoking for the length of your hyperbaric oxygen treatment because tobacco may block your body’s natural ability to transfer oxygen.

Certain medications should be avoided ahead of time. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may affect certain medications. Consult with your healthcare providers in advance to discuss any medications you’re taking.

Don’t arrive sick to the appointments. A cold, fever, or flue can delay the effects of your treatment.

HBOT treatments last from 60 minutes to two hours. We recommend that you receive hyperbaric oxygen therapy for an extended period of time. It may take multiple sessions before you starting seeing the benefits.


When you arrive at one of our treatment centers, our staff will do everything we can to help you feel relaxed and comfortable. Our hyperbaric chambers are some of the most reliable and comfortable in the industry, and we use monoplace chambers so you can enjoy the treatment with plenty of privacy.

Our technicians are by your side for the duration of the treatment, and we have several entertainment options available as you pass the time.

The duration of the treatment will depend on the condition we’re treating, but whether you’re here for an hour or two, we’ll make sure that everything goes as smoothly and comfortably as possible.

You can visit Aalto Hyperbaric at one of our two state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen treatment centers. Experience the results for yourself in Century City, California, or in Woodland Hills, California.

Our treatments are safe, painless, and non-invasive. They are scientifically proven to treat a number of temporary and chronic conditions that traditional medicine may not address.
