How Do Oxygen Bars Work?

Do you ever feel drained, fatigued, or in need of a pick-me-up? Oxygen bars are a rejuvenating experience that provides a boost of extra oxygen. These innovative establishments have gained popularity for their promise to re-energize and refresh, but how exactly do they work their magic?

How Do Oxygen Bars Function?

At the heart of an oxygen bar lies an oxygen concentrator. This device works by extracting oxygen from the surrounding air, filtering out other gasses, and producing a higher concentration of oxygen for inhalation. The air we usually breathe contains about 21% oxygen, while an oxygen concentrator can deliver concentrations of up to 90% or more.


Visitors can sit comfortably, choosing their preferred aromas and oxygen flow rates. We offer a selection of aromas including wild berry, mint, citrus, raspberry, peach, and cinnamon/apple. You then inhale the purified oxygen through a nasal cannula for a prescribed duration, typically around 10 to 30-minute increments. This enriched oxygen intake helps boost energy levels, reduce stress, and alleviate headaches, among other potential benefits.

Oxygen Bars Function

Our Onsite Recreational Oxygen Bar

Summit Oxygen warmly welcomes both tourists and residents of the Rockies to experience the finest on-site oxygen bar in Colorado, conveniently located in Frisco, near mountain towns Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, and Dillon. Situated at an altitude of 9,097 feet, Frisco’s high elevation can cause discomfort due to lower oxygen levels, leading to altitude sickness symptoms.


We also offer Oxygen party bars, bringing the fun to you! Our oxygen bar parties are perfect for big events such as weddings, conferences, and other team-building activities. Guests can have a great time together while continuing to gain the benefits!

The Health Benefits

The human body relies on oxygen for survival; it fuels cellular processes and supports overall bodily functions. Increased oxygen intake is thought to enhance these processes, potentially providing several benefits:

  • Elevated Energy Levels: Oxygen is crucial for producing energy in the body. Increased oxygen intake may contribute to a perceived boost in energy and alertness.
  • Reduced Stress Levels: Deep breathing of oxygen is often associated with relaxation. It may help reduce stress and promote a sense of calmness.
  • Alleviation of Headaches: Improved oxygen flow might aid in reducing the severity and duration of headaches, especially those caused by tension or stress.
  • Enhanced Mental Clarity: Oxygen plays a vital role in brain function. Some users report feeling more mentally focused and clear-headed after an oxygen session.

Are There Any Risks?

Generally, oxygen bars are considered safe for short-term use. However, individuals with certain medical conditions, such as respiratory or heart problems, should consult a healthcare professional before trying an oxygen bar. Prolonged use of high concentrations of oxygen without medical supervision can have adverse effects.

Summing It Up

Oxygen bars offer a unique experience that aims to provide a breath of fresh air. By concentrating oxygen and infusing it with pleasant scents, Summit Oxygen aims to invigorate and refresh its users. While the science behind the benefits is promising, it’s essential to approach oxygen bars as a short-term rejuvenation method rather than a long-term solution for health issues.
