An oxygen bar offers non-medical oxygen mixed with various scents including aromatherapy. The air is delivered to the user by a disposable nasal cannula. The client can choose from a variety of aromas such as mandarin orange, lavender, eucalyptus, and rosemary mint. The air we breathe day to day contains about 21% oxygen and the rest is nitrogen, argon, and other trace gasses. The oxygen from oxygenbars is between 92% and 98% oxygen. This allows intake of 4 to 5 times the normal amount of oxygen.
There are several benefits to an oxygen bar. The most commonly reported are:
Non-medical, self-contained machines called oxygen concentrators. All equipment is compliant with the FDA and our oxygen generators are CSA and CE approved.
There are no risks or adverse affects with short term use. The American Lung Association has said that breathing oxygen from an oxygen bar for less than 30 minutes (one session) has no harmful effects.
No. They are strictly for entertainment and not for medical or therapeutic use. All components are non-medical and require no special licenses or certifications.
