Hyperbaric Therapy Testimonials
Long Haul Covid:
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a must try in my opinion!!
I got Covid in November of 2020 and was suffering from many long haulers symptoms for 15 months which included extreme fatigue, nonstop headaches, shortness of breath, gut issues, no taste/smell, brain fog along with not being capable of multitasking. Which was on my strengths before covid. Not to mention, I was always in a horrible mood.
I was a fairly active with a full time job working 50 hours a week, Kayaking, fishing, camping, walking the dogs ( couple of hours a day) hanging out with friends and on the local Volunteer fire Department. So, if you are a long hauler, you will understand that you would do just about anything to get your pre-covid life back.
I thought this might be Hocus Pocus, but at this point I was willing to try anything. I did a 5 hour drive round trip for 30 treatments.
Well it has been two weeks from my last session, and I have to say I feel the best I’ve felt during this whole covid experience. It feels like breaking through ice, finally gasping for air. I know I have more to heal, but wow. I also had a shoulder injury that had been very painful and now I almost have full movement with very little pain.
The Staff at the treatment center were very nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this clinic.
Neuropathy and TBI:
I am listing all the benefits I’ve experienced from HBOT. I never dreamed that I would get so much out of this therapy. Needless to say, I’m impressed. These are not in any order.
1. The neuropathy on bottom of feet-gone
2. Joint pain in many parts of my body- gone
3. Getting out of chairs – easy
4. I get less winded going up and down stairs- so improved Cardiac function
5. The dark purplish bands surrounding the white area under my fingernails is gone.
7. Leg swelling down by as much at 70-80 %.
8. Scars from surgical procedures have become less visible
9. Now at 70, after ill effects of a TBI, my brain fog has been reduced 80%.
10. My social behaviors have improved, I can now clearly see, in many instances with regret, the things I’d said and done which turn out poorly and hurt a lot of people. Absolutely amazing. I could not recognize this with my TBI and before HBOT.
11. I feel my cognition improved by 70-80%, and I am able t think faster.
There is so much more. Thank you and your company for making this journey possible and a success.
Stephanie, and all Hyperbaric Center Employees:
I want to thank you and your staff of the Hyperbaric Centers of Florida for providing my son, Scott, with the most amazing results using utilizing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. This state-of-the-art stem cell regeneration therapy provided the catalyst for Scott to begin experiencing feeling and movement in his right foot, leg, and right arm, as well as the ability to start speaking short sentences which were previously nonexistent as a result of the damage caused by a massive stroke 7 years ago.
Before therapy, Scott could walk with a device but had no feeling is his right foot or leg. He now has feeling in his right leg and is re-learning how to walk normal again. He previously could speak one or two words at a time, but after this hyperbaric therapy he is now speaking short sentences.
He is beginning to gain feeling on his right arm and shoulder now but will still need additional therapy for continued healing in this area.
The healing which as taken place in such a short period of time is truly remarkable. It has given Scott the ability to start participating in activities he has not been able to enjoy for the last 7 years. He now displays a positive attitude as he continues to reach 100% recovery.
Thank you on behalf of my son, Scott, for being able to participate in this remarkable cutting-edge, life changing therapy.
Stephanie, it has been so nice getting to know you over the last several weeks! I am so thankful to God that I found you! I am already seeing changes in Danny – a big one that we both have noticed is that he has almost completely stopped sweating at the drop of a hat! He is also calmer and less volatile. I’m praying that God gives us above and beyond what we have asked for as a result of this therapy. We need a miracle! Take care and I will keep you posted on progress!
Stephanie, I pray all is well with you and the family. I just wanted to write you a short note to once again express my appreciation toward you. Thank you for going the extra mile to ensure that I have accommodations to come to do treatments. I appreciate all the love and kindness that you and your family show me. I am exceedingly grateful. I have been blessed so much. Its good to know that people still do care for others. Thank you again for all that you’ve done and are doing. God bless and be encouraged.
Daryl and I want you to know how much we have enjoyed our visit and our dives! It’s been an amazing experience and we have appreciated your expertise and professionalism throughout our stay! We are looking forward to returning someday. If you’re ever in Alabama, know you have a place to stay!

Bryan was the first person I talked with at the Center. He set the caring tone that all staff would show for my 20 days of oxygen treatment (40 hours). The patient before my one-hour in the chamber was a father with an autistic son and afterwards a mother waited with her brain injured daughter for their turn in the life changing chamber. I called the chamber “the prince’s room’ because it was so comfortable with many pillows. I am a researcher and reviewed oxygen therapy in depth. My weak heart has improved and been touched by the life-saving work done at this Center.
Allergies and Well-Being:
It was really a pleasure meeting you and sharing with you this adventure. The Hyperbaric oxygen therapy did help me significantly with all the allergies I had with food, and just being in a humid and hot environment like Florida.
My quality of living is definitely better. When I arrived, I had allergies to mold, to wheat, to milk, to pollen, to cigarette smoke, to heat and humid weather, etc. The allergies significantly decreased, to the point I could be with people smoking and I would not feel stuffy nose or dizzy. I could eat more variety of food of what I normally eat, due to my allergies, and feel great. I could exercise early morning without feeling exhausted.
The level of energy significantly increased which has allowed me to increase the amount of production every day and the ability to be living in a climate like Florida where in the past it was fully impossible without feeling significantly sick and having to leave the area after a month.
My clarity of thinking increased as well, my good mood, my zest for life, since I no longer had to keep living with all the sensations and sickness that my allergies were producing.
My digestive system started to work properly, without the pains and bad digestion I used to have. The amount of bad flora, candida, truly decreased in my digestive system, which makes it easier to live.
After the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, my life is now basically normal, without the need of constantly keeping an eye on food or the environment I am in, but just being able to live. This is huge.
Thank you so much for this great too, which has allowed many people to recover from unwanted states and conditions in their bodies, which allows us to play the game of life in a more enjoyable way.

We miss all of you there, too. Maybe we’ll get back to you some day. You made us feel very comfortable. I feel a lot better already, and can’t wait to get back bowling. I start today. Wish me luck. Regards to all and GOD BLESS YOU.

My experience in the hyperbaric Chamber was an easy and pleasant time. Very friendly professional staff. The office hours were great, because it was really conducive for my schedule. Cherie Alvis
I have relied on the experts that are opening Hyperbaric Centers of Florida to provide treatment for my Lyme Disease for the past five years. Mary, Colorado Springs
Six years ago I was given four months to live as a result of liver failure. The owners of Hyperbaric Centers of Florida provided treatment for me at their center in Texas and I was able to begin to grow new liver tissue. My primary care physician can not believe that his four month prediction was incorrect. I do require “booster therapy” which involves a few treatments every 6 to 8 months, but my health is excellent and I look forward to a long and productive life. Debbie, Oklahoma City
Everyone at the center was kind, professional and supportive during duration of treatments. Richard has better energy levels, better at performing work tasks, and reading with better comprehension. He seems to have improved communication skills as well as helping him with his friendships. Thank you again for your kindness and support. Lynn – Key West, FL (Neurological Damage)
Joseph (my son) is showing more eye contact, more affection and more conversation. His OCD has lessened (repetitions are not as constant). It has not been 3 weeks yet, but I do see improvement. Thanks to Stephanie, Miss Carol, Fred and Barbara for taking care of him. He still remembers the M & M rewards. Marta – Orlando, FL (Autism)
Hi Stephanie, We appreciate the kindness, care and support that you all showed to us during Christian’s treatments. Everyone was so nice and very helpful to our family. We are pleased that Christian is now able to communicate with speech, everyday he is getting more clear and confident. At night when it’s time to go to bed he feels really great about practicing saying all of his new words for hours. Christian can say; ” I am happy, I feel good.”
His face looks totally different now that he knows he can get his words out, he is getting better at speaking everyday. One of his teacher’s today was saying how she just let him talk to her all day.
This teacher has just recently returned to school, she had been out since summer due to having a surgery. Mrs. Lisa told us today that she is amazed to see the difference in Christian and to now be able to know what he is thinking. We are all excited to hear something new from him everyday.
I got another good report from school today, this time from Christian’s main teacher. She wanted to tell me herself that he talked to her all day. That was very exciting for her! I could see how surprised she was because he was still talking as she was talking to me. Tammy – Zephyrhills, FL (Autism)
Our Experience at your facility was much more than we expected! Everyone was very professional and friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and patient. Regan, we believed, truly enjoyed her time in the chamber. Not one time did she complain about her visits and in fact, she was very eager to go!
Since her therapy has stopped, our family and friends agree that they see development in Regan. She tends to make more eye contact with strangers, asks intriguing questions for clarification and initiates spontaneous conversation with others. We are very pleased with everything and look forward to future hyperbaric opportunities. Becky – Tampa FL (Autism)
The Guerra family is very thankful for your services at Hyperbaric Centers of Florida. Our experience in your facility was very pleasant, clean and home warming. Hyperbaric treatment has been a blessing to our son Kenny. He has been recovering and progressing amazingly, we’ve noticed many changes after his treatments with HBOT. His personality, thinking, reasoning are coming back like Kenny was always. He is more independent, he’s cooking his own meals, playing video games, taking care of his image, he saves, showers on his own and amazingly all his acne has disappeared. Wish you our best wishes. Guerra Family, (TBI)
We really enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you over the last 3 weeks. Your sweet demeanor and hospitality made us feel right at home. We cannot tell you how important that was for us while we were away from home, a bit anxious, and doing treatments. We cannot thank you enough, but want to give you a token of our appreciation. Tomazins Family, (Lyme)
Neuropathy and Planter Facitis:
Larry and I are feeling fine…. But especially Larry! He is able to hop up in the back of his pickup truck in one leap! Last year before HBOT he could hardly make it with at stool! We are leaving soon, but plan on a few more dives in the fall to keep the good health momentum going forward. Buckland Family, (Neuropathy & Planter Fasciitis)
Short-term Memory / General Health:
It is just a month since the end of our 20-day session you afforded us. Hilda’s short-term memory is much improved. Also, her skin tone and color is better. Old age brings on numerous bruises and we find them healing more quickly. Hilda’s energy level is also up a few points. I had no specific complaints, so I was there to assist Hilda and be a companion in the chamber. I found the overall experience to be a pleasant one. It was also a pleasure to meet persons who are having positive results from the sessions. Trent Family, (Short-term Memory/General Health)
Lyme / Autism:
We are hoping that we will be able to do HBOT with you guys every summer!!! Hedges Family, (Autism/Lyme)
Since we have left there he (our son) has been asking to go potty a little more often. Not yet really potty trained, it is a step in the right direction. He has been walking around the house saying “Monkey Boy” (his nickname we gave him). He also happens to repeat something Mommy said! lol. I had stepped on a pricker for the grass, and I happened to say “son of a b**ch” and he repeated it! I couldn’t help but laugh. He hasn’t said it since so that’s a plus. Other than that, the teachers have said that he is starting to focus more and it is easier to get him back to focus when coming out of a meltdown. He seems to reply sometimes with the right answer when asked a question like “Do you got it?” he replies; “I got it”, as he walks away. He has been doing really good. I am in hopes to see more improvements and also would like to come back when we can. Distotell Family, (Autism)
Paraplegic / Wound Care:
Last Fall 2013 as a paraplegic, I had the privilege of experiencing and witnessing myself how hyperbaric treatment can save and improve lives. This great news in medicine must be shared and allowed to grow. The approach is somewhat basic in nature, but with technological inventions it becomes a common tool to one day be utilized for everyone. Hyperbarics is definitely part of our future preventative and post healthcare. The staff are another proof of this with alert professionals providing a comfortable atmosphere and an enormous caring spirit. They really took time to explain how it works. I think they really like that part.
The story for me is, after an exhausting failure with old western medicine techniques, my pressure sore injury was not improving. So after web surfing a bit I came across Hyperbaric Centers of Florida. My familiarity was limited to how it helped divers who had been injured or just need to decompress. The first 10 visits were really informative and eye opening. To say detoxifying is part of the process is a polite way of saying your going to be surprised that was in you. But that’s great! You’re on your way to a healthier you! The next 10 days started showing better circulation in my legs, more energy, sleeping better and improvement in general all around. My last 10 days, making it 30 straight hyperbaric treatments, I wanted to go to see if I could benefit anymore. I believe it did. And whenever I need a 10-day cleansing and revitalizer, you can bet I’m going to Hyperbaric Centers of Florida! Noel – Tampa (Minor Wound Care)
