20-minute pampering retreats


What it feels like to take the much-hyped Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Red Laser
Light Therapy


Wellness just got easy. Lay back in a cozy sleeping pod, snug up in a closed cabin, or lounge in style
on a funky chair for 40 minutes. It could lead you to almost promised sound sleep, glowing skin and
sharp vision. Hyderabadis are abuzz about cutting-edge treatments like Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
and Red Laser Light Therapy. WOW! dives into The Wellness Co. in Banjara Hills to test out these
trending therapies firsthand, uncovering their sensations and safety
Svetalana Petrenko from The Wellness Co. guided us on a tour, where we selected two indulgent
therapies. The three-month-old establishment offers an extensive range of wellness and healing
treatments, from Oligoscan to IV Drips. Here’s what we explored.
Red Light Therapy
How it is done: Sit minimally clothed on a soft stool in a red laser-lit enclosure for 15 minutes. As
soothing music plays, let the rays penetrate your body. The room turns crimson, reminiscent of a
photo studio’s darkroom of yesteryears. Use an eye mask if needed, sip water, and find comfort
knowing there’s an emergency button. No pain, no noise, just relaxation. Importantly, no phone
usage during the session.
What happens in there: The red light stimulates the cells with light energy that gets absorbed well
by the surface of our skin, called the dermis. This absorption has healing properties, from increasing
collagen (meaning better skin), energy and sleep.
Red light therapy has become popular because it is non-invasive; there’s no downtime and few side
Benefits: Heals various skin conditions like acne, inflammation, and signs of aging such as fine lines
and wrinkles. Additionally, it aids in muscle recovery, alleviates joint pain and inflammation,
enhances mental acuity, and supports thyroid function. 
Note: You may need to take multiple sessions across four or five days for the results to be tangible.

Price: Rs 6,490 for 15 minutes. 

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT):
How it is done: You enter a pod resembling a train’s top berth, latch on a nose mask, and the pod’s
lid seals shut. Pressure adjusts, feeling like a blast of AC, then it normalizes. You can stretch out,
scroll your phone, and feel no claustrophobia due to the glass chamber. After 20 minutes you
emerge feeling refreshed. 
What happens in there: It involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment, known as a
hyperbaric chamber. The therapeutic potential of pure oxygen forms the cornerstone of HBOT. It
harnesses the healing properties of oxygen to promote wellness.

Benefits: Treats infections, air bubbles in blood vessels, and wounds that might not heal due to
diabetes or radiation damage. It also boosts skin health and helps achieve a healthier complexion.
This Therapy is risk-free as it is non-invasive. It relies only on pressurization and oxygenation to heal
the body. Though multiple sessions are recommended for tangible health benefits like improved
