The man behind OxyGeneration is a tonic in himself. Brian Lynch abounds with energy and enthusiasm from the moment we met. The day job is as a skilled solicitor, but his obvious passion is OxyGeneration, with his mission being to tell the world just how beneficial this hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment is for an increasing variety of conditions.

For those who are not familiar with HBOT, a quick guide — we have about 20 per cent of oxygen in our blood — but a session in a hyperbaric chamber like OxyGeneration has at Merchants Road can see this rise to a level of almost 100 per cent oxygen at an increased air pressure.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) was a much vaunted treatment that gained prominence over a century ago. At first, it was used for decompression illness caused by the then new pursuit of deep sea diving (the bends) and later to enhance wound healing during wartime. But once antibiotics were introduced, hyperbaric oxygen therapy was pushed aside as a valued tool in the treatment of infectious diseases.
