Oxygen Bars: The Latest Trend in College De-Stress Events
With college students constantly citing stress as one of their major downfalls, universities are always looking for new ways to decrease stress within their student populations. Often, these “stress relief” events happen around an especially difficult time of study, like midterms or finals. Many universities bring in events like massages or even puppy-petting to help students unwind.
You’ve probably heard of college students and their affinity for bars in general, but have you ever heard of an oxygen bar? An oxygen bar is typically set up for recreational use and offers aromatic oxygen solutions to common problems like stress. Oxygen bars have become the latest trend in university events.
Oxygen bars are now being highlighted as key events during these stressful weeks at universities across the nation, according to a recent press release. Many students will line up to reap the benefits an oxygen bar provides. Oxygen bars offer different types of aromatherapy with up to a dozen different scents.
When it comes to finals and midterms, many students have trouble with sleeping and anxiety. Some of these scents, like lavender and vanilla, can help students feel calmer and more relaxed. However, other students have difficulty feeling awake enough to really reach their full potential while studying for long periods of time. Other scents, like peppermint and eucalyptus, are available to students who need to feel more energized in order to tackle their studies. With so many options at oxygen bars, there really is something for everyone in need of a little boost in their day.
Another major point to oxygen bars is the short amount of time necessary to achieve the desired effects. In just a 10-minute session at an oxygen bar, students can receive healthier oxygen, stress and anxiety relief, a social environment to interact with others, and even unique photo opportunities. Nothing intrigues people more than posting a picture of yourself at an oxygen bar!
Oxygen bars, however, may seem all the rage now but have actually been around for quite some time. Airheads Oxygen Bars is a company that has been providing oxygen bars since 1998. Similarly, these events don’t exclusively have to occur at university stress-free events; they can be a hit at virtually any occasion.
Oxygen bars can be found at sorority and fraternity functions and fundraisers, homecoming events, smoking awareness-related events, student orientations, and even concerts! Airheads Oxygen Bars is the world’s largest oxygen bar and retail manufacturer.
