Kent MS Therapy Centre launches new website to attract others to its hyperbaric oxygen chamber
Did you know that hyperbaric oxygen (Oxygen Therapy) therapy not only helps multiple sclerosis, but other symptoms and conditions too?
Canterbury-based Kent MS Therapy Centre has the only specialist hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (Oxygen Therapy) chamber in East Kent, and has launched a new website to raise awareness of its service.
Oxygen Therapy hit the headlines in 2015 when it was credited with helping brain-injured Afghanistan war veteran Ben Parkinson take his first steps unaided. And Olympian long jumper Greg Rutherford had hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (Oxygen Therapy) to cure a longstanding hamstring injury before winning Gold in 2012.
‘Our Oxygen Therapy chamber is our greatest asset, and we know it could be helping a lot more people’, says Karen Middlemiss, Kent MS Therapy Centre support manager. ‘Oxygen Therapy is drug-free, side-effect-free and non-invasive. It’s proven to help with maxillofacial (jaw and face) wound healing and is an accepted therapy for burns and carbon monoxide poisoning.
‘We’ve also seen great results for migraines, sports injuries, poorly-healing wounds, post-radiotherapy damage, fractured bones, fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis, among others.’
How much does it cost?
Sessions cost £15 each (with discounts for block booking sessions) and all money raised from Oxygen Therapy treatments goes towards the running costs of Kent MS Therapy Centre, which is a registered charity.
Depending on symptoms, people have an intensive introductory course of 20 hour-long sessions over four consecutive weeks, then top-up sessions once a week.
Open until 8pm on weekdays from May
Oxygen Therapy is currently available on Mondays to Fridays from 8.30am – 5pm – and then from 3 May will be available until 8pm every week day.

What is hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Oxygen Therapy (Oxygen Therapy) is a medical treatment that uses oxygen to enhance the body’s natural healing process.
‘Hyperbaric’ means ‘increased pressure’, and Oxygen Therapy involves breathing in 100% pure oxygen through a mask in an enclosed chamber at twice the normal atmospheric level. This is compared to the air breathed every day.
Oxygen Therapy often features in the media.
Here’s a selection of news stories and first-person interviews from the last few years. You can find more stories from the media on the Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Trust website.
