IHHT – Intermittent Hypoxia Hyperoxic Therapy

IHHT will boost your energy levels and make you feel great in body and mind.

This simple but effective treatment is used to train astronauts, Olympic athletes, and mountaineers, but it can enhance the health and fitness of every patient, regardless of their fitness level.

The benefits of IHHT

IHHT uses simple breathing techniques developed for altitude training to bring about profound changes at a cellular level. These changes combat the adverse effects of stress, ageing, poor sleep, and alcohol intake on the powerhouses of our cells, the mitochondria.

Research suggests that damaged mitochondria cause many health problems, including persistent low energy, premature ageing, and chronic diseases.

IHHT encourages the body to eliminate damaged mitochondria and replace them with healthy mitochondria that support bodily functions more effectively.

The health benefits of IHHT may include the following:

  • Improved aerobic fitness and breathing
  • Better blood circulation to the organs
  • Improvement of the oxygen supply and energy production of the cells
  • Superior immune function
  • Increased fat burning, supporting weight loss
  • Balancing of the vegetative nervous system (VNS)
  • Increased performance and concentration
  • Improvement of sleep quality and stress resistance
  • Balanced hormone production
  • Reduction in the symptoms of asthma, diabetes, depression, anxiety and gastrointestinal issues
  • Rejuvenated skin

This innovative but simple treatment brings you the health and performance benefits of altitude training without the hassle of travelling to the mountains, making it a convenient and effective choice for your health and well-being.

Your Intermittent Hypoxia Hyperoxic therapy at Harpenden Medical

This relaxing treatment involves breathing varying oxygen levels through a mask for 30 minutes while seated in a reclined position.

Room air, oxygen-enriched or oxygen-reduced air are alternated through the mask for several minutes each.

During treatment, the body is exposed to periods of oxygen deficiency hypoxia, which encourages the body to adapt to lower oxygen levels, leading to a wide range of functional and physiological benefits.

Your IHHT treatment will be meticulously tailored to your body’s oxygen requirements as they change during your course of treatment.

Blow Media have just launched our brand swanky new website and, excuse the pun, we are blown away. Scott, Ross and Rik nailed the brief we gave them and have gone above and beyond to produce a cracking website. It was also excellent value for money! The team were responsive throughout and were understanding and cool about last minute changes and design tweaking. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Best Website Design Agency in Berkshire in my view, perhaps the best in the UK. Have built 5 websites with them for clients in London, Leamington and Berkshire and every-time they knock it out the park.

This is an example of what our target clients are saying...“I have just looked at your new website….It does look amazing!!!! Very fresh, modern, vibrant and clear and simple to navigate. :)”. Exactly what we want - Scott and his team have delivered against the brief for our new website. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We have worked with Blowmedia closely to build two websites. I am not a very techy person and was daunted by the whole process, Scott explained everything to me in a way I could understand, always at the end of the phone or contactable by email and the whole process dealing with him and his team was easy and painless. The website is very professional and easy to navigate and has instantly from being launched started to attract new patients. I would highly recommend Scott and the Blowmedia's team to build any website.

I initially spoke to a member of Blow Media's team at a trade show and was very impressed with what they had to offer and with the websites they had already built which I was able to look at on my phone as I queued up to speak to somebody. The initial meeting was followed up very promptly that following week with an email and a fully detailed proposal of what they could offer which was very easy to follow, explaining fully all their services and a breakdown of their costs. I had already researched web designers thoroughly and soon realised that Blow Media, from my initial meeting and early correspondance, was the company I was going to use. From day one they were very proactive and led the whole process. Scott the MD came to see us and very quickly fully understood and visualised what we wanted to achieve perfectly. He also recommended a content writer, an SEO company, a company to do some filming in the clinic and a photographer. We used all his contacts other than the photographer which we decided to try and do ourselves but have since decided to use the photographer Blow Media initially recommended as my photography was the only thing I could criticise about my website. I would highly recommend Blow Media and their whole team, I have already instructed them to start work on our second website as our first website is already delivering and the clinic has never been busier.

Blow Media built our first website back in 2011. They worked closely with us and were able to deliver an outstanding, well presented website that enabled us to get found on search engines. After our business continued to grow we commissioned a second website in 2014 and then our third website was built in 2018. Our experience from start to finish has been fantastic With a special mention for Tracy and Scott who always make the process a joy. I would highly recommend the team and have many times already!
