We have introduced a mild hyperbaric oxygen chamber to what we now offer you at SBR Sport.
What is Hyperbaric Therapy?
Hyperbaric therapy consists of a person breathing high doses of oxygen in a hyperbaric or pressurized environment. By breathing enriched oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber, the availability of oxygen in the blood plasma is increased, thus generating a variety of beneficial physiological effects, as it allows more oxygen to reach the brain, cartilage, bones, and tissues. This is particularly beneficial to areas in the body that are restricted due to swelling or infection, or other causes of poor circulation. The chamber takes you up to 1.4 ATM and thus is classified as a mild hyperbaric chamber.

I think we are agreed on this: Exercise is vital. Johnathan Shaw writes the following in the Harvard Magazine –
Iron Man is just around the corner. Although I’m not doing it, I will be down in PE supporting my fiancé Jonathan. I feel like we have been eating, sleeping and breathing Iron Man since September and I have no idea what we are going to talk about afterward! We were chatting about his tapering nutrition over the weekend and I thought I would share a few tips with you all.
