What is ozone therapy

Ozone therapy is the administration of ozone into the body for therapeutic purposes either as a sole treatment or as a complementary therapy in various pathologies. The therapy is based on the beneficial effects of the gas on the body, which are very varied. Ozone, although it is a molecule with an “oxidising” capacity, increases the “anti-oxidative” capacity of our organism.

Beneficial effects of ozone therapy on the human body

New: Ozone therapy and COVID - 19

In the wake of the COVID – 19 pandemic, much research has been conducted into possible treatments for this disease. The need to prevent deaths from this pathology has led to experiments and tests to find the best alternative to prevent and cure it.

As a result of this research, ozone therapy has been found to be very effective in treating COVID 19. Its benefits include the following:



Apparently healthy people, with high cortisol level, stress, negative stress and muscle fatigue


All forms of circulatory disorders:

  • Peripheral: when the blood cannot reach the tissues, as happens for example with intermittent claudication or smoker’s leg. Also in Raynaud’s disease and migraines.
  • Cerebral: Pre- and post-stroke states, degenerative brain diseases and cerebral sclerosis.
  • Coronary: Coronary vessels, angina pectoris, or after a heart attack.



Ozone is most useful for infections that are invulnerable to antibiotics, such as viral and fungal infections. Hepatitis, herpes, Epsein-Bar (Infectious Mononucleosis).



As a support in cancer therapy.


Liver diseases

Hepatitis, Cirrhosis.


Recurrent infections

Cystitis, Otitis, Sinusitis.






Lung diseases

Asthma, emphysema, pneumocystis pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, COPD.


Gynaecological infections

Vaginitis and vulvovaginitis. Excessive discharge, vaginal dryness, Trichomonas and Candida.


Rheumatic diseases

Particularly appreciated in chronic polyarthritis.


Metabolic disorders

Diabetes Mellitus. Also in disorders of fat metabolism.


Heart failure and high blood pressure


Digestive diseases

Gastritis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, constipation, chronic diarrhea, fissure and anal fistulas.


Skin diseases

Neurodermatitis, acne, psoriasis, radiotherapy scars, fungus and others.


Diseases of the sense organs

The sense organs, especially the eyes, are very sensitive to the energy released by the nascent oxygen: in Cuba, ozone is used to treat such serious diseases as retinitis pigmentosa, optic nerve atrophy, glaucoma, as well as corneal ulcers and infantile hypoacusis.


Diseases of the brain

Neurological and degenerative diseases of the central nervous system, such as Parkinson’s disease or cerebral sclerosis, as well as early Alzheimer’s disease, have also benefited from the therapeutic action of ozone.


Immune disorders

Multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and hypersensitivity reactions.



For the wear and tear of age. Aging is a process of poor circulation and hypoxia. O2/O3 is especially appreciated for the treatment of the organ most sensitive to oxygen deficiency: the brain.



In general, before and after surgery and convalescence. In the improvement of sports and intellectual performance.



As a local activator of microcirculation and collagen, to treat micro varicose veins, erase acquired blemishes, etc.

What is ozone therapy for?

Ozone therapy for tendinitis

Ozone therapy is a particularly useful treatment in cases of tendonitis. This is because it has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, allowing for shorter recovery periods and less pain. In this way, it allows the patient to return to his or her routine much sooner and thus improves his or her mood and prognosis.

Among other conditions, ozone therapy for tendinitis is recommended for the following areas:

Ozonoterapia Clinica Rigo
Ozonoterapia Clinica Rigo

Ozone therapy for arthritis

Similarly, arthritis is easily treatable with ozone therapy. This treatment not only relieves pain and improves recovery time, but at the same time strengthens the immune system and thus attacks at the root some of the causes of this problem.

Again, ozone therapy for arthritis is especially effective in these areas:

Ozone therapy for osteoarthritis

Because of its anti-inflammatory capabilities, its action against pain and its repairing benefits, ozone therapy is a good option for treating osteoarthritis. It is particularly interesting for treating the following areas, especially since it can be used for a long time without generating side effects:


Ozone therapy for cellulite and localized fat

Cellulite is a very common and harmless skin condition that causes lumps and dimples on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. This condition is more common in women.

Ozone therapy is one of the best treatments for cellulite. Its effect is due to the following processes:

  • Destruction of fat tissue by oxidation. Ozone melts the fat accumulated in the adipocytes, which is then eliminated through the pores in a completely safe way.
  • The melted fat is eliminated hours later in the urine.
  • Finally, the body itself fills the gap released by the fat with connective tissue, which takes up much less space and provides a firmer and more attractive appearance.

In short, through ozone therapy it is possible to transform cellulite into firmer tissue, thus eliminating aesthetic imperfections without any danger.

This same process can also be used to remove localized fat, making it one of the best alternatives to riskier operations such as liposuction.
