Ozone Therapy utilizes medical use of oxygen as ozone gas. Ozone, or O3, is a form of oxygen that can permeate deep into the tissues at the cellular level. Though not commonly used in the United States, Medical Ozone is used in many countries throughout Europe and Latin America. Ozone therapy is used to stimulate the body’s immune system to address chronic or acute infections and to bring oxygen to the body’s tissues.
How does Medical Ozone work?
Medical-grade oxygen is fed into an ozone generator, which converts oxygen to ozone. Once ozone penetrates the tissues and is taken up into the cell, it returns to oxygen again. Within the cell, the oxygen can stimulate the mitochondria to produce energy at the cellular level.
Increasing this production results in healthier tissues, more efficient metabolism, and increased resilience to infection. Ozone also has a direct antimicrobial effect. It can treat bacterial infection, viral infections, Lyme disease, and parasites.
Regular use of ozone therapy slows aging by increasing oxygen utilization to the brain, muscles, skin, and internal organs. Please visit www.aaot.us for the American Academy of Ozone Therapists website for data on Medical Ozone’s health applications.
Conditions that should show positive results from ozone in research include:
- Coronary Artery and Cardiovascular Disease
- Gangrene/vessel claudication/Diabetic ulcers and neuropathy
- Macular Degeneration
- Cognitive Decline
- Chronic Infections

This is a full-body ozone treatment administered in a Russian steam cabinet to induce a cleansing sweat. As the body heats up in the sauna, ozone is fed into the sauna itself. Ozone sauna is used for detoxification, skin conditions, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, Epstein-Barr virus, Mycotoxin Illness, Lyme Disease, and cancer. The ozone sauna room contains a flat-screen television and a shower.
Price is $45 dollars per visit or a bundle of 4 treatments for $160.
Time in the sauna is 30 minutes; treatment is scheduled for 60 minutes to allow for time getting into and out of the sauna.
Limb Bagging/Ozone Cupping
These are ways of delivering ozone to particular areas of the body. Ozone cupping can be used over single wounds to simulate healing. Limb bagging of the hands can be used for arthritis and local infections of the fingers, while limb bagging of the feet can be used for diabetic ulcers, athlete’s foot, toenail fungus, and neuropathies.
Price is $40 minutes per visit or a bundle of 4 treatments for $140.
Treatment duration is 20 minutes with the appointment scheduled for 30 minutes.
Additional fee for Limb Bagging of $1.00 per treatment for bag.
Rectal or Vaginal Insufflation
Ozone is delivered to the GI, urinary tract, or vagina using a small catheter attached to a pre-filled bag of ozone. The patient inserts the catheter themselves. They can undergo the treatment in the office or pick up wht bag and bring it home for use. These methods are used to treat infections with candida, parasites, bacterial overgrowth, menstrual cramps, endometriosis, Interstitial Cystitis, prostatitis, and autoimmune colon diseases.
Price is $40 per treatment or a bundle of 4 treatments for $140.
Additional fee of $20.00 for ozone bag, which can be used 5 times.
