About Aviv

We no longer have to accept that our mental and physical ability will decline as we mature. The latest research shows that some of the biological effects of aging can be reversed and that we can regain the peak performance and quality of life we crave.
Why accept feeling “well for your age”, when you can feel healthier than you have felt in years? Why cruise through life at an average speed, when you can regain the energy and productivity you once had?
The Aviv Medical Program, helping you stay at your best for longer. Sharp. Active. Fulfilling your potential. How? The power of oxygen.

The Aviv Medical Program

Understanding the biology of peak performance

At Aviv, we treat aging and the associated decline in mental and physical performance as a disease that can be treated. We’ve created a medical treatment – the first of its kind – that can reverse some of the effects of aging by triggering the body’s natural process of regeneration with a unique combination of hyperbaric oxygen treatments, physical conditioning and cognitive training.

But it’s not just about reversing age-related decline. Our treatment is for anyone who wants to regain or enhance their peak performance in mind and body – and maintain it for longer.

Proven methods backed by a decade of research

The Aviv Medical Program was developed by the Aviv team and Dr. Shai Efrati, Director of the Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research at the Shamir Medical Center, one of Israel’s leading teaching hospitals. Over 200,000 hyperbaric sessions have been conducted there to date.
Dr. Efrati is the world’s foremost expert on hyperbaric medicine and has treated over 1,000 clients with the Aviv protocol. The vast majority have seen a marked improvement in their brain and body performance after treatment.

Oxygen in the spotlight

The world is waking up to the importance of oxygen medicine for healthy aging. In 2019, three researchers were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for their research into how living cells sense and react to changes in oxygen levels.

Dr. Efrati has spent the last 15 years studying the power of oxygen to heal and rejuvenate the body. His groundbreaking work, which leverages the Nobel prize winning discovery, shows that fluctuating oxygen levels in the body can activate the body’s own regeneration mechanisms, helping us reach our peak and stay there – happy, healthy, and active.
