MS therapy centre HBOT- Leeds

I used to have oxygen chamber at Leeds, West Yorkshire many years ago. Since I stopped my MS has become much worse so I’m thinking of restarting. Just wondering if anyone goes to the MS therapy centre in Leeds? Would I need to have my 15 or so sessions at the beginning to get familiar again? How much does it cost?
Thanks

@lemtrada-uk , they’ve put up the cost to £15 per session :-

Oxygen Therapy

Yes, there’s normally a recommended intensive course to increase your oxygen saturation levels. But, you might be able to have a couple of sessions to see how you benefit.

Why not ask them the question?

I’ve called them today. I can start as soon as I’m ready. Thinking back, I don’t know why I ever stopped. It was so beneficial. But hindsight is a wonderful thing lol.
I don’t know if I’m physically capable of driving there and back in 15 consecutive days any longer. I wish I had never stopped. Normally going anywhere wipes me out fatigue wise, so I can only imagine what doing so for 15 consecutive sessions will do 😒
I can’t remember what difference the differing atmospheric pressure makes and which atmosphere I used to go at?
@doubleo7hud no it’s not on the nhs. Nice to see a fellow huddersfield MSer 😃. Good luck with your treatment & hope you’re not waiting too long

Not sure I remember this right Lemtrada-uk, but from my dim & distance open water diving course with PADI, i think 1 atmosphere is equivalent to the old fashioned 6 ft!…when we started, & as stumbler says something to do with Oxygen Saturation, we were only allowed down to 9 mtrs..wasnt until later we were allowed deeper…good luck & all the best with sessions.
