Interval hypoxia-hyperoxia therapy (IHHT)

Activate mitochondria, increase performance, regulate cell metabolism

In order to remain vital throughout life, a person’s cell metabolism in particular must be healthy. The human body consists of approximately 70 trillion cells. Each of these cells requires energy, which they produce in their own “power plants”, the mitochondria. The molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is formed in the mitochondria and forms the chemical basis for all reactions and metabolic processes in the body.

Unfortunately, however, mitochondria are particularly vulnerable to the environmental influences that modern life brings. Unhealthy food, pollutants, lack of sleep, stress, alcohol, nicotine and many other things affect the mitochondria. One in three people over the age of 20 has mitochondrial dysfunction. Impaired mitochondria are limited in their performance. As a result, the body becomes more susceptible to many of our chronic diseases of civilization. In addition, performance and well-being are reduced.

What can you do about it?

It is therefore necessary to ensure a healthy cell metabolism through functional mitochrondria. Interval Hypoxia Hyperoxia Therapy (IHHT) was developed precisely for this purpose. This therapy works in a similar way to altitude training in the mountains: it combines a short-term oxygen deficiency (hypoxia) with a subsequent oxygen surplus (hyperoxia). This interval leads to a training effect of all body cells, and in particular to a renewal of the mitochondria. The protection against oxidative stress also increases and the natural production of coenzyme Q10, the key molecule for energy production in all cells, increases. There is a strengthening of the immune system and also an activation of fat metabolism.

When can IHHT help?

Burn-out & Stress

By activating energy production in the mitochondria, IHHT allows them to efficiently convert the energy sources sugar and fat back into energy. The cells are better supplied with energy and your body can perform better again. You become fit for everyday life.


Healthy mitochondria burn fat and sugar immediately and efficiently and no longer store the energy in the form of fat cells. With IHHT you can support your diet and reach your goal faster.

Infectious diseases

If you suffer from frequent colds and flu-like infections, the cause may be a weakened immune system. Strengthening mitochondria through IHHT will strengthen your body’s defense system.

Other examples:

  • More cell energy (ATP)
  • Balancing of the autonomic nervous system
  • Better sleep
  • Better blood circulation
  • Increased ability to concentrate
  • More protection against oxidative stress through stimulation of the body’s own Q10
  • Balancing of cellular energy production from carbohydrates/fats
  • Improvement of stress resistance
  • Shortening of regeneration times
  • Faster degradation of lactate
  • Balancing of hormone production
  • Increase of physical and mental performance
  • Support for weight loss through activation of fat metabolism

How does the application work in practice?

Very simple: Either you lie relaxed on the treatment couch, or you increase the effect by simultaneous movement on the stepper or the treadmill.
