Oxygen Oasis Hyperbaric Wellness Center was founded by a wife and husband team – Victoria Bliss-Calkins and Tom Calkins after witnessing first-hand the healing power that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) offers.
The Calkins’ were introduced to HBOT on a personal level when searching for treatment options for the radiation injury that occurred after Tom underwent treatment for stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma of the tonsil. After completing hyperbaric therapy for delayed radiation injury, Tom regained flexibility in his neck and reduced the frequency of the muscle spasms he endured after his surgery. They felt a calling to help others to find the same ray of hope they found in hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Tom is an owner of Railway Specialties Corporation. For the past 40 years his company has supplied all of the watertight doors, hatches and scuttles (along with a small variety of manholes) for every CVN Nuclear Aircraft Carrier in the U.S. Navy fleet. This lead to the manufacturing of hyperbaric chamber shells and hatch doors, that have been outfitted by Reimer’s Systems Inc. Reimers Systems Inc. (RSI) was founded in 1994 to provide high quality hardware solutions for man-rated hyperbaric and hypobaric applications with special emphasis on medical hyperbaric applications. Over the past several decades, RSI has emerged as an industry leader in the design and construction of hyperbaric and hypobaric facilities both domestically and internationally.
Victoria has 32 years’ experience in Sales/Business development in the Cable and Telecom Industry. She departed the industry in 2011 to start her own company – Oxygen Therapurity, LLC (O2TP). O2TP was established to make Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy more widely available to Hospitals, Medical Centers, Clinics and Research Centers through a unique and affordable partnership. After launching successful partnerships with hyperbaric facilities, the next step was to open and operate her own facility, Oxygen Oasis Hyperbaric Wellness Center.
In pursuit of excellence, Victoria sought the highest quality of Hyperbaric Oxygen Training in the Industry and received certification in Hyperbaric Medicine and Facility Safety through Wound Care Education Partners of North Palm Beach, FL. She is a nationally registered EMT.
