Initial HBOT instructions Mar 20th, 2024
Since hyperbaric oxygen therapy requires a pressure higher than the normal atmospheric pressure, this creates tension in the tissues that may be inappropriate for people with some medical conditions.


People with the following conditions should not use HBOT treatment:

  • Fear of enclosed space

  • Pneumothorax

  • COPD- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

  • History of burst lung

  • Emphysema

  • Severe asthma

  • History of seizures (fits)

  • Heart disease

  • Eye, ear, nose and throat problems

  • Experienced middle ear barotrauma

  • Eustachian Tube Dysfunction

  • High fever or acute illness

  • Latex allergy

  • Currently pregnant

  • History of chest surgery

  • History of heart failure

People with an implanted electronic medical device such as a pacemaker/automatic implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (AICD) should not enter HBOT units.

People with a history of exposure to, or taking the following medications should not enter HBOT units.

  • Doxorubicin (Adriamycin)

  • Cisplatin

  • Disulfiram (Antabuse)

  • Mafenide Acetate (Sulfamylon)

  • Bleomycin

Before coming for your appointment

Do not put on any oil or alcohol based grooming products such as perfume, or makeup.

Bring a towel or blanket for comfort, and a book or a tablet for entertainment!

Set aside at least 90 minutes for the HBOT session.


Before entering the HBOT

Do not carry any items into the HBOT that could ignite a fire (eg. lighters, match sticks, etc.).

Remove and do not bring in any sharp objects, be careful with jewellery, into the HBOT.

Make sure you take a visit to the toilet prior to entering. To get the most out of your HBOT session ideally you should not leave the unit for 60 minutes!


During compression (5 minutes)

Once you are comfortable inside the HBOT, we will begin slow compression. The feeling is similar to descending from a plane flight. Your ears ‘pop’ as the atmospheric pressure is increased. This is where the Valsalva maneuver or swallowing saliva, could be performed to ease and equalize pressure changes within your ears.

Once pressurised the door will not open from the inside.

We will maintain verbal communication via intercom or phone during pressurisation.

At any point of time when discomfort is experienced, we can slow or halt compression and open the door until you are ready to proceed. It is perfectly normal and we will be there to help.


Treatment time (40-50 minutes)

Once the pressure stabilizes, you can get comfortable and enjoy the high pressured high oxygen concentration environment.

This is where you can relax, read a book, play a game of tetris, sleep, meditate, conduct breathing exercises, or even catch up on your favourite podcast.


Decompression (10 mins)

At the end of your HBOT session the unit will slowly decompress automatically to allow a safe exit.

The pressure will be released slowly until you are back to 1 atmosphere.

You can exit the HBOT with or without support. Again, we will be there for you!



Once you are out, let us know how things went and what changes you would like ot make for future HBOT sessions.

Initial Sauna Instructions Jan 31st, 2024




Please put a towel on the bench folded double to absorb sweat, as well as a small towel on the floorboard under your feet.

It’s also nice to have a small hand towel available to wipe the sweat off your skin. Wiping off the perspiration seems to encourage more sweating.




Turn your sauna on, set the temperature to 55°C and let it warm up for about 15 minutes.

After this short warm-up time when the temperature is in the range of 38° to 43°, get in the sauna and begin your session.

Many people prefer 46° to 52°. In time you will find what is best for you. Keeping the thermostat at 55° will ensure that the heaters stay on during your whole sauna session allowing you to receive optimal infrared heat. If it’s starting to feel too warm, just open the door a crack to let in some cool air.

Our Infrared Sauna is heating your core body more so than heating the air. For this reason, do not be concerned about the actual temperature reading in the sauna.


How Long?

The recommended session time is 25-35 minutes. Some people are in their sauna for longer or shorter depending on their preference and overall health.

If this is your first time in a Infrared Sauna, start with 15 to 20 minutes. You can then slowly increase your session times.


Medical Conditions

Check with your Doctor prior to commencing a Sauna if you:

  • Are Pregnant

  • Have chest pain

  • Had a recent Heart Attack

  • Have Coronary Artery Disease, Heart failure or cardiac arrhythmia.

Blood pressure may decrease after sauna, sometimes resulting in fainting.



Stay well hydrated when using your sauna.

It is estimated that 70% of people are dehydrated. When you are dehydrated, your body holds on to water and will not allow you to sweat very much.

It is recommended to drink water before you get in the sauna and during your session, as well as after your session.



Alcohol intake while sauna bathing can create serious health risks and should be avoided.

COVID Safe Gym Guidelines May 23rd, 2020













Covid Safe Plan May 18th, 2020

With the progressive concern of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are making sure we take all precautions to ensure the health, safety and hygiene of all staff and clients.

Please read the following information carefully

Symptoms of Coronavirus may include:

  • a sore throat;

  • cough;

  • shortness of breath;

  • fevers; and

  • muscle or body aches 

If you have any of the above symptoms and 1) have been overseas or interstate in the two weeks prior to symptoms developing, or 2) have been in contact with a person who has coronavirus (COVID-19) please call your GP, they may be able to organise testing for you without you needing to attend the clinic. This procedure may vary from GP practice to GP practice.

There is also a state Coronavirus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080.

Please keep Triple Zero (000) for emergencies only.

For ongoing health and safety, practising good hygiene is your best line of defence in keeping with the WHO and CDC recommendations. This includes:

  • stay home when you are unwell

  • washing hands with soap and water – thoroughly and regularly.

  • covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and

  • avoiding close contact with others, especially in public.

In keeping with the above recommendations CWHR staff will be limiting unnecessarily close contact for the time being, particularly hand to hand contact (Hand shaking) and full body contact (Hugging). We also encourage all gym members continue to stick to social distancing guidelines while in the gym.


Staff will be regularly wiping down and disinfecting equipment in the rooms / gym / hydro area. We ask that gym members bring a towels to cover equipment during use, and wipe down the equipment used with the disinfectant provided.

We also ask that people start to bring a towel to their physiotherapy appointments. This small change, which is already common in many other countries, will help personal hygiene during physiotherapy treatment sessions.

More Detailed Gym Guidelines are avaliable here: Gym Guidelines

Thank you for your understanding
