Please check what kind of chamber you are thinking of paying for. I paid $500 to lay in the equivalent of a decompression chamber. My naturopath did not realize that
his soft unit did not have any method of supplying any oxygen. I learned a lot by looking at the machine and researching the brand and seeing that this office only had
a compressor running. There is no way a compressor can induce a higher oxygen level. Needless to say the doctor is now purchasing the unit needed to raise oxygen levels to a level that will indeed help healing and about 4 lbs p.s.i. True oxygen therapy surely can’t hurt.

By the way, is your skin issue a dermatitis type issue. I thought my severe rash was caused from gluten, but now I now know that it is definitely benzo related. Symptoms from benzos are all over the board.

Good luck in your research.

I did about 30 sessions. I was in a large chamber with oxygen masks. I think what helped the most at the time was the oxygen but who knows. I feel like maybe my brain isn’t getting enough oxygen… probably due to shallow breathing habits and not talking most of the day. Anyway, it helped a little but not enough to continue (I think you need to do like 60+) and it was also very expensive for what I got out of it.

I figured because they use it as a treatment for TBI with PTSD, Stroke, and Cancer that it may provide some benefit.

Good luck if you decide to try it. And yes you need to find someone who has a proper chamber where they feed you oxygen.
