Delivering Life Giving Oxygen

The revolutionary medical ozone therapy is now available at Physiotherapy Barnsley, we are delighted to make this available as one of our core services.

With a history spanning over a century, ozone therapy has demonstrated remarkable abilities in stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. By delivering life-giving oxygen to each of our 50 trillion cells, it offers a holistic approach to healing and rejuvenation.

We specialise in IV Ozone Therapy, the most effective method for providing the body with substantial ozone levels in a single treatment. This technique penetrates deep into the body, ensuring oxygen reaches a greater number of red blood cells than conventional methods allow.

Here are some key benefits of IV Ozone Therapy:

  • Stimulates Stem Cell Production: Promoting the generation of new stem cells and activating existing ones.
  • Enhances Energy Production: Improving overall vitality and stamina.
  • Boosts Blood Circulation: Optimising the delivery of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
  • Strengthens the Immune System: Supporting the body’s defences against infections and illnesses.
  • Reduces Inflammation: Alleviating discomfort and promoting healing in inflamed tissues.
  • Inactivates Pathogens: Effectively targeting and neutralising viruses and bacteria.
  • Supports Anti-Aging: Aiding in maintaining youthful vitality and resilience.

Wondering how the treatment works? Our approach is centred around Major Auto-Hemotherapy (MAH). This involves administering an IV drip and drawing approximately 200 millilitres of blood from a vein. The blood is then mixed with ozone and oxygen using an Ozone Generator before being reintroduced intravenously into the bloodstream. This process, known as a “one pass,” allows the ozone-infused blood to circulate and benefit the entire body.

During a session lasting one to two hours, this procedure can be repeated up to 10 times, known as the “10-pass Ozone Therapy,” for enhanced effectiveness.

What does Ozone therapy do?

It helps the body to heal, by a process called Hormesis.

Moderate stress can be very beneficial, as it stimulates a response from the body.

Defence mechanisms of the body are activated in response to a threat, if the threat is manageable it will be dealt with and resistance to other threats will be established, even being able to repair existing damage.

Other stressors that have a positive effect on the body are things like exercise or cryotherapy.

How many sessions do you need?

It depends on the condition approximately 5-10 treatments on average are needed to achieve a desired level of support.  Clients typically begin to notice the effects of Ozone Therapy after the first 3-4 sessions, as it has a cumulative effect.

How often can you have IV Ozone therapy?

This depends on the condition that is being treated, during your initial consultation this will be discussed and an appropriate amount of sessions will be recommended.  In most cases treatments are performed once or twice a week.

For general health we recommend 3-5 sessions then a 6 monthly maintenance session.

How long is a session?

A session will vary in length from 20-30mins for a 3 pass to 60-90 minutes for a 10 pass

What is the difference between a 5 pass and a 10 pass?

A ‘Pass’ means how many times 100ml to 200ml of your blood is drawn through the Ozone machine and infused with Ozone. 3 pass is 3 times, 5 pass is 5 times and so on. The more passes that you do the greater the concentration of ozone in your blood.

More is not always more, often it is more beneficial to have less passes. We always recommend starting with a 3 pass, to see how your body reacts and how you feel.

Why do I need a consultation?

We take health and safety very seriously at the Ozone Clinic. In your consultation we will take your vitals, such as Blood Pressure and temperature and will ask you questions about your health and what you are hoping to achieve from your treatment so that we can advise you on achievable outcomes. To ensure safety, we require that you provide current medication that you are taking and any health conditions that may be contraindicated. So that we ensure that you are getting the best and safest treatment.

 Your therapist will also recommend the concentration of ozone (a concentration between 30-45mcg/ml is recommended for conditions that require anti-oxidant stimulation and higher doses are recommended for those that require oxidant therapies).

Why should I have a 3 pass before having a 10 pass?

IV Ozone therapy is very effective at detoxification, it is possible that you may feel what many refer to as a healing crisis post treatment, that can leave you feeling unwell for a few days. This is not beneficial for your overall health. When toxins move out of cells we want to ensure that they are eliminated from the body. If they are moved out into circulation too quickly they can redistribute in your body, cause damage and increase free radicals, whilst leaving you feeling tired, with other possible side effects such as a headache or nausea.  To avoid this, we start you slow and build up your sessions.

How will I feel afterwards?

Most people don’t feel a difference until they have had 3 or 4 treatments, as ozone therapy is cumulative.  Everyone is different, but you should expect to feel more energised after a few treatments and symptoms should start to reduce.

Here’s what some people say – brain fog simply lifts away, memory improves, thinking becomes clearer, energy is improved, pain is decreased.

Will it affect my medication?

IV Ozone therapy is very safe and one of its great benefits is that it generally doesn’t interact with medications. We do not recommend IV ozone therapy for anyone that is taking an ACE inhibitor.

What are the contraindications?

  • GP6D deficiency
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Thrombocytopenia
  • Allergy to Heparin or citrate (citrus fruits)
  • Acute alcohol intoxication
  • Haemochromatosis
  • Cardiovascular instability
  • Active seizure
  • Pregnancy
  • Ozone allergy (this is very rare)

What are the side effects?

The side effects are usually temporary and should resolve in a few days or shortly after treatment.

Please note that these are possible side effects, and most people don’t experience any.

  • Reddening of the skin (erythema) at the site of injection into the vein
  • Possible bruising at the vein entry site
  • Dry or itching eyes
  • Lightheadedness
  • Mild headache
  • Phlebitis
  • Mild irritation to the lungs with a slight urge to cough

IV Ozone therapy can lead to a detoxification reaction (Herxheimer reaction) which can include fatigue, headache, fever, chills, flushing, body ache and mild hypotension, as we have explained above at the Ozone Clinic we start slowly to reduce the risk of this. If this does occur we recommend taking certain nutrients to help eliminate the toxins.

Will I feel any pain or sensation?

You will generally not feel any pain, except for the initial insertion of the needle into your vein. We take great care to ensure that the process is as painless as possible. Everyone is different and has different pain thresholds, but most feel little to no pain.

You may feel a coolness as your blood re-enters your body
