My First Oxygen Bar Experience

by Ryan Kelly

A couple of weeks ago...something caught my eye. An oxygen bar. I told myself that one day - I was going to check it out. Well, yesterday was my day! It was my Dad that decided we would check it out together.

The concept is pretty self-explanatory.....one inhales (almost) pure oxygen to relax; possibly relieve a headache or satiate curiosity.

There were a few scents to choose from: cherry, pineapple, hyacinth, eucalyptus,etc. Once you select the scent...you are handed the breathing tube (pictured below). You then grab a seat at the oxygen bar and pay $1 per minute (up to 20 minutes at a time) and inhale. Some people use this is a relaxing tool and choose to dim the lights and close their eyes while intaking almost 100% pure oxygen. As for my Dad and I: we giggled about the tubes and enjoyed each other's company. Thank you Dad, for checking another item off of my bucket list. Happy Father's Day! I love you! xoxo, Ryan.
