Vermont Business Magazine Dr Grace Johnstone is pleased to announce the opening of Hyperbaric Vermont’s first hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) facility. Hyperbaric Vermont is a Vermont nonprofit organized in 2017. Located at Colchester Plaza, 3619 Roosevelt Highway, Suite #7, in Colchester, it joins affiliated HBOT clinics in Montpelier and East Hardwick run by Community Hyperbaric. Through affiliate treatment centers and its own facilities, Hyperbaric Vermont supports the provision of high quality, affordable HBOT throughout Vermont and surrounding areas and serves as a model for those who wish to do so in other regions.

About Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is used internationally for more than 80 different conditions. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory, a natural anti-microbial, normalizes immune function, and speeds tissue healing. Research supports its use for athletic injuries and performance, arthritis, autism, attention deficit disorder, auto-immune disorders, Bell’s Palsy, brain and head injuries, burn injuries, cardiovascular disease, cerebral palsy, Crohn’s disease, dermatological conditions, diabetes, dementia, interstitial cystitis, irritable bowel syndrome and colitis, Lyme disease, learning disabilities, mild cognitive impairment, MS, neuropathies, non-healing wounds, pervasive development disorders, post-concussion syndrome, PTSD, radiation damaged tissue, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, reconstructive surgery, stroke, transverse myelitis, TBI and more.

Hyperbaric Vermont in Colchester officially opened its doors on December 4, 2017 and has three hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) chambers for use: the Grand Vertical Dive, the Military Dive, and the 28” Horizontal Dive. The Grand Dive Vertical is 40” D x 6’ and is suitable for anyone wishing to be upright/seated or who has concerns regarding claustrophobia. The Military Dive is 33”D x 8.5’ and is another large chamber suitable for those that wish to lay down during treatment. Both the Grand Dive Vertical and the Military Dive are large enough for parent/child to be able to receive HBOT together. The 28” Horizontal Dive is 28”D x 7.5’ and allows for a patient to receive treatments while laying down (this chamber also is a good one to try if there is a desire to purchase a chamber for personal use). Office hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:30 am to 5 pm and Friday from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. For more information or to schedule an initial visit please call 802-662-5993. hyperbaricvermont.org
