Our practice offers an innovative approach to treating Long-Covid symptoms - the Intermittent Hypoxia-Hyperoxia Therapy (IHHT). This is a special oxygen therapy that has a positive effect on mitochondrial cell metabolism and has proven to be a promising method for relieving Long-Covid symptoms.

The IHHT uses a unique mechanism to increase the number of intact mitochondria. This creates a stress situation for damaged mitochondria through a rhythmic change between oxygen-poor (hypoxia) and oxygen-rich air (hyperoxia). These then perish, making room for healthy mitochondria that can improve the energy supply of the cells. The IHHT is gentle and does not require any physical effort on your part.

Regular exercise plays a crucial role in the therapy of long Covid. Aerobic endurance training, strength training, coordination training, respiratory therapy, and cognitive training not only promote recovery capacity, but also improve mitochondrial structures and thus the entire organism.

Our practice places great emphasis on an individual and holistic approach to the patient. By combining innovative therapy options such as IHHT and proven holistic approaches, we offer an integrative approach to the treatment of Long-Covid symptoms.
