About Nirvana Hyperbaric Institute:
Nirvana Hyperbaric Institute is an independent HBOT provider founded in 2009. We accept and are providers for most major insurance plans, including Medicare.
Our staff is comprised of dedicated, knowledgeable professionals that take a patient-centered approach. We emphasize coordination with our patient’s primary-care and referring providers to ensure they experience the best possible result by assuring their scheduled medical procedures coordinate with the proper HBOT protocol. We appraise your doctor of your progress with weekly treatment reports.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) enhances the body’s natural healing process and strengthens the immune system. We pressurize our chambers with 100% medical grade oxygen in our state-of-the-art hard chambers. This results in oxygen dissolving into the plasma for up to a 1500% increase in blood oxygen concentration. The hyper-oxygenated plasma then reaches all areas of the body where circulation is restricted and oxygen levels are insufficient (including brain and bone), enabling the body to address many conditions .
