In Scotland, a therapy center in Dundee will now offer an innovative treatment for people struggling with long Covid. They have added a hyperbaric oxygen chamber to the massage clinic.

Butterfly Effect Holistic Centre on West Wynd offers a range of different massages, aromatherapy and reflexology. Now founder Maggie Wallace is preparing to take on a new type of therapy, in the form of a hyperbaric oxygen chamber.

This is used to speed up healing of infections in which tissues are starved for oxygen, wounds and other conditions. Maggie believes it will benefit people with long Covid.

“You basically chill out in a little box and you’re flooded with oxygen,” she explains.
