On a recent trip to Phoenix I joined another fellow explorer and together we ventured into the world of alternative health and wellness.
We unexpectedly found ourselves standing in front of an oxygen bar. Having driven to Phoenix, a trip of almost 200 miles down the mountains at an elevation drop of over 5000 feet in altitude, and still struggling to acclimate to the region, I thought the oxygen bar would provide me with an added boost. Once inside, it was explained that oxygen aids in good health by boosting energy levels, increasing endurance, reduces stress and toxins as well as increasing concentration and focus.
Natural scents are added to the oxygen such as lavender and eucalyptus to enhance the experience and to create a feeling of relaxation or as an energy boost. The scents are extracted from essential oils.
Sessions are priced depending on the amount of time selected. I was offered a special for $25., which included a hydro massage. I laid down face first fully clothed on a hydro massage table as jets of water sprayed up and down my back from my neck to my feet. The water pressure could be controlled for personal preference from mild to firm. I ended the session with the oxygen bar, which left me feeling relaxed and energized at the same time.
Feeling sluggish? Head for your nearest 02 bar for a quick and natural boost.
