    The above link might help you decide. I know there is a hyperbaric chamber in IOM however sadly they aren't going to fund it anymore. It helped a lot of people recover from serious injuries, also it appears to cure tissue damage. It's worth looking into if you haven't already.

    Hi Rach.

    It's admirable that you took the time to answer a post that had not been answered. However, it is from November 2007. Martin still visits us and will no doubt pick this up if he visits soon.

    Hi yes I noticed it was a while back however I checked out the profile and it appears that Martin does stop by often so hopefully he'll read it or maybe he might have already looked into it and received treatment in the interim.

    Martin would be great if you could let me know? :)

    It is used in the treatment of MS.

    The MS society have one in Bedford and others around the country.

    Results seem a little hit and miss though.
