Why Hyperbaric Chamber is Not One of the Core Therapies at Regenus Center.

We get asked all the time why a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is not one of the core therapies at Regenus Center.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) may not be a realistic option for recovery, and its effectiveness for chronic diseases is questionable when considering the cost. If you have the financial means and are willing to invest a significant amount of money, then it may be worth considering. While HBOT is not inherently bad and can provide benefits, it may not justify the high cost.

It’s important to note that HBOT is primarily intended for medical environments rather than retail recovery. We are speaking out about this issue because we have witnessed numerous individuals deplete their savings in the hopes that HBOT would improve their condition or that of their loved ones, only to be disappointed by the lack of significant changes. Paying $5000-$10,000 per package, just to experience slight improvements in sleep quality may not be the most cost-effective solution. There are alternative methods that are more effective and significantly less expensive. We urge caution to those who believe that a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is the ultimate solution to their health concerns.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has become an alternative treatment for various conditions, including autism. However, it is important to approach this therapy cautiously and understand its limitations. This article will explore the claims surrounding HBOT and its effectiveness.

The Purpose of a Regenus Center:

Regenus Center is a recovery center that utilizes devices to improve energy regeneration, enhance cellular energy production, and provide hormetic stress on cells to make them stronger.

What we focus on is helping individuals recover from stress, pain, and fatigue by helping them accelerate recovery so our clients look, feel, and perform better and improve their overall well-being,

Regenus Center does not promise or promote the idea that its offerings can solve genetic/birth defects,  such as autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and MS, even though research suggests that regenerative practices, starting with enhanced cellular energy production, should help every one of these conditions.

For example, Hyperbaric Chamber and Autism:

It is crucial to be aware of the pseudoscience surrounding using hyperbaric chambers to improve autism. While some individuals claim positive results, it is essential to approach this therapy with realistic expectations. The hyperbaric chamber is primarily designed for wound healing and a few other conditions, such as burns.

The FDA does not approve HBOT for the treatment of autism

Research and Safety Concerns:

Research on the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for autism is limited and often skewed. Many individuals have spent significant amounts of money on HBOT without experiencing the desired results. Safety risks, the need for a therapist, and the lack of conclusive evidence make it important to carefully consider this therapy’s potential benefits and drawbacks.

Alternative Medicine and Unfounded Claims:

It is worth noting that alternative medicine doctors may make unfounded claims about the effectiveness of hyperbaric chambers and other treatments. Expensive supplements, hyperexpensive tests, and radical diets such as ketogenic diets are often promoted without clear evidence of their ability to resolve chronic conditions.

It is crucial to approach these claims skeptically and consult with experienced healthcare providers in accredited medical facilities.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers for Recovery

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy primarily accelerates soft tissue recovery by reducing local hypoxia, inflammation, and edema [,,]. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has become a recommended form of treatment for recovery from injuries among non-athletes. However, no scientific evidence shows that the method effectively treats elite athletes after training sessions and competitions []. Read more here.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can benefit soft tissue recovery by reducing hypoxia, inflammation, and edema. However, it is important to note that the cost of HBOT can be high, ranging from $75 to $150 per session. If you pay out of pocket, be prepared to spend thousands of dollars. Additionally, the benefits of HBOT may not be sustainable unless you continue purchasing sessions regularly, which is why it’s out of reach for most people.

But, if you take limited after-tax dollars and invest in a hyperbaric chamber to speed recovery, let alone attempt to recover from genetic, birth, or chronic lifestyle-induced diseases, especially where you don’t own it yourself, be prepared to spend thousands of dollars with limited benefit.

Even if you get a great benefit, will you keep purchasing more blocks of sessions at up to $10,000 at a clip?

If not, then then the benefits will stop.

There are much less costly ways to get oxygen and speed recovery that are far more sustainable and effective.


While there may be success stories and anecdotal evidence surrounding the use of hyperbaric chambers for autism, it is important to approach this therapy with caution. The lack of FDA approval, limited research, and high costs associated with HBOT should be carefully considered. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy should be seen as a supplement to lifestyle changes rather than a cure for chronic conditions, and you have to consider if you can or want to afford it in the face of other ways to promote recovery that are just as effective and so much less expensive and risky.

It is always advisable to consult with healthcare professionals and make informed decisions based on reliable evidence.
