We are close in proximity to the Orange County Airport, the beaches, and a relatively short distance anywhere from Los Angeles to Newport Beach to San Diego.

We treat not only the 14 approved FDA indications for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, but we, along with integrative and progressive medical teams, stay current in the field of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and will treat for a variety of issues that HBOT is suggested. This includes autism, stroke, traumatic brain injury, as an adjunctive therapy to Lyme Disease, mold exposure, cancer treatments, anti-aging and more.
