What can an oxygen bar do for you? If you are looking for a shot of oxygen, isn’t the whole world an open bar? The atmosphere contains 21% pure oxygen, which we use to saturate our blood during inhalation. This constant saturation keeps fresh blood moving through the body, which is essential for the provision of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to organs and tissues. Our bodies need a constant flow of fresh materials to remain healthy and functioning.
In the 1990s, a new trend hit the United States: the oxygen bar. For a fee, customers in spas, health clubs, and even some nightclubs could now inhale a concentration of anywhere between 30-40% pure oxygen via a nasal cannula or face mask. Most oxygen bars even offer scented oxygen flavors for a more pleasant experience. These non-medical supplementation sessions last anywhere from 5-20 minutes. When oxygen bars were first introduced in the U.S., curious bar hoppers said this new type of shot gave them greater relaxation at the spa, increased energy at the gym, and more stamina in the club.
Oxygen bar enthusiasts proclaim the following benefits after a session:
- Increased energy and alertness;
- Better focus and concentration;
- Improved endurance for physical activities and faster recovery time after physical exertion;
- Lessening of hangover and jet lag effects;
- Greater relief from allergies, sinus issues, and air pollution;
- Greater ease from headaches and migraines;
- Reduction of stress; and
- An overall feeling of full-body relaxation.
Please be aware that for people with certain medical conditions, use of non-medical oxygen at an oxygen bar is not recommended. If you suffer from a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis), asthma, congestive heart failure or heart disease, or pulmonary hypertension, do not use non-medical oxygen without speaking to your doctor.
