The Calmare® MC-5A medical device is able to provide relief from chronic neuropathic pain by overriding pain signals from damaged nerves. The active principle is not to inhibit pain transmission, but to substitute or override pain information with synthetic "non-pain" information. In many cases patients experience immediate pain relief. This FDA cleared, break-through medical treatment consists of ten 45-minute sessions in which the patient rests comfortably while the signal is delivered through non-invasive, surface electrodes on the skin. This means NO side effects associated with medications, injections or surgery.

Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago

We are a privately owned Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy clinic in Kansas City, Missouri. Our Hyperbaric Clinic provides oxygen therapy to children and adults and specializes in providing hyperbaric oxygen therapy for brain injuries, stroke, autism, cerebral palsy. Our KC hyperbaric chamber is the largest of its kind in the Midwest. We are a Hyperbaric wellness clinic serving our clients with a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Our Oxygen wellness clinic also offers in-house physical therapy as an adjunct to hyperbaric therapy. HBOT is sometimes considered Alternative Medicine or Holistic Medicine and we have first hand experience of the benefits. 
Our daughter Tatum was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy-Spastic Diplegia at age 1. Like most of our clients, we spent years looking for answers and researching every therapy, treatment, drug, herb, and surgery that could possibly help our baby girl. We ultimately found that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy had the most profound benefits. Two years later, Hyperbaric Healing Institute was founded so we could get our daughter all the hyperbaric oxygen therapy she needed. In the face of adversity we have found a life's purpose. We are honored to serve other families on their journey.

Oska Wellness is committed to developing health and wellness technology-driven products that assist individuals in living a more active, pain-free lifestyle. We believe that people suffering from pain deserve relief without the side effects of medication. The revolutionary Oska® Pulse utilizes our patent pending eTec™ pulse technology that specifically optimizes Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy, which is similar to the PEMF Therapies used in many clinical applications for accelerating the body’s ability to heal itself.

The science and technology behind the Oska Pulse was engineered and developed by a team of respected scientists and researchers with over 25 years of experience in engineering health and wellness technologies to treat pain. The product is proudly manufactured and assembled in the U.S.A. 


When cells are injured or have degenerated, they lose their electrical potential
and are no longer able to exchange ions, causing inflammation and pain.

Oska Pulse uses optimized PEMF to restore the electrical potential cells need
to receive nutrients and oxygen, which stimulates cellular regeneration—relieving
pain, and activating the body’s natural recovery process. 

Missions on Fire is an organization dedicated to providing missionary opportunities to individuals with chronic illnesses!
