Oxygen Therapy

Wellness Pods Australia Meditation

Contact Wellness Pods Australia to see what we can do for you. The technology of the past few decades has resulted in a large number of trades and professions working longer and more often. It’s also made it more difficult to stop working, even when you’re not there. Whether you finish work at 5:00pm or 11:00am, relaxing mentally and physically is a must! Wellness Pods Australia Meditation

On the other hand, for many people, it’s unrealistic to start work at the same time each day. Consequently, many people continue to work outside of their official hours. Because of this, it’s become increasingly important to create your own healthy boundaries and methods for unwinding during leisure time.

What’s the biggest challenge? Relaxing on demand! Relaxing on demand isn’t necessarily intuitive, particularly in our “always on” society. What’s relaxing to one person may not be the same for another. Above all, it’s up to you to determine what brings you a sense of calm.

The concept originated in countries where concerns over the quality of air pushed people to seek purified air.

After gaining popularity in Japan, Mexico, and South America the oxygen craze surfaced in North America and Europe.

Now Oxygen Cafes can be found in just about any major city

Benefits of higher % oxygen for Physical & Mental Health

Higher intake of oxygen promotes rapid post workout recovery, deep tissue detoxification, enhanced VO2Max development, and improved mental acuity. Anyone interested in improving their performance, energy levels, mental acuity and feelings of well-being can benefit from the intake of more pure oxygen.

Our Wellness Pods use a concentrator machine, which filters out nitrogen and other atmospheric gases to produce oxygen that is about 95% pure (the air we breathe is approximately 21% oxygen). Scented oxygen is purified oxygen that is sent through bottles with aromatic solutions, providing a subtle scent. Breathing in this non-medical, oxygen leaves users feeling refreshed, full of energy and detoxified.

 

4 main benefits of oxygen therapy

  1. Weight Loss

Oxygen therapy can result in weight loss because it increases circulation and speeds up metabolism, which in turn, can help burn calories. Oxygen is essentially the fuel our cells require to function. If our cells do not have access to enough oxygen, they will not perform as they should. If our cells are not nourished with enough oxygen, they send the message to our brain that they need nourishment, or food. If the majority of our energy is derived from oxygen and the remaining is derived from food, it would make sense that the more oxygen we take in, the less hungry we feel.

  1. Mental Clarity

Oxygen is critical to life. We don’t usually think about oxygen as energy, but that is how our brains use it. It comes as no surprise that the brain requires a great deal of energy to operate. The brain has a very high metabolic rate because of constant neural activity, so the availability of oxygen is closely related to brain performance. When there is poor blood circulation, memory breaks down. By boosting the blood flow to the brain and increasing neurotransmitter production through oxygen use, it is possible for better concentration and memory retention to be achieved.

  1. Depression Relief

It is commonly known that oxygen can be physically and mentally healing. It can help lift one’s mood, even shifting the chemical balance that is necessary to feel well, but how? Similar to the prescription of exercise for improving mood, whether aerobic exercise or yoga, most exercise centres around breathing. This type of breathing results in an increased oxygen intake and produces a natural high. This can also be achieved after a few minutes of breathing oxygen. When breathing highly oxygenated air, you decrease the amount of carbon dioxide that is introduced to the body. With less carbon dioxide present, your body feels less anxiety. Research has shown that there is a connection between the supply of oxygen to the brain and how well the energy-producing fibres of the cells perform. An inadequate amount of oxygen can interrupt neuron function and the electrical activity of the brain. According to some, exposing psychiatric patients to a 40% concentration of oxygen is a safe and effective way to improve psychiatric function.

  1. Hangover Cure

If you have ever experienced a hangover, you are familiar with the aches and pains that accompany one. After ingesting alcohol, your body needs some time to recover. Oxygen plays a very important role in recovery – of any kind. In this case, your liver breaks down the alcohol into acetaldehyde, which is then broken down into water (eventually be expelled through urine) and carbon dioxide (expelled through breathing). It takes 3 oxygen molecules to break down 1 alcohol molecule, therefore, if you increase your oxygen intake, your body will be able to break down and expel the alcohol much faster.

Is it all hype? Can the claimed benefits be felt or is it a placebo effect? Despite the conflicting opinions, higher percentage oxygen, at the very least, will offer a peaceful reprieve from everyday stressors and air pollutants.

It is a worry to some that inhaling higher percentage of oxygen can cause health issues. For instance, within the lungs, there are small sacs (alveoli) where inhaled oxygen enters the bloodstream and carbon dioxide exits. A surplus of oxygen in the lungs can cause carbon dioxide to become trapped in the body. This build-up of oxygen in the lungs can collapse the alveoli and cause permanent lung damage. It is very important to note that anyone interested in using an oxygen machine should consult with their doctor first, especially adults with emphysema, chronic asthma, or chronic bronchitis, in particular.

Meditation

Although there’s not one single activity that calms all, our Serenity Pods are a great place to start. Most noteworthy, Oxygen infused meditation in one of our Serenity Pods, can help remove stress and replace it with a calmer you. That is to say, Meditation is an incredible practice that benefits us in so many different areas of life. It reduces stress, allows us to focus our minds and teaches us the joy of truly living in the moment.

Some people are comfortable sitting back with relaxing music and settling into meditation. However, some of us prefer guided meditations, because it can be tough to meditate without a teacher or guide. In short, guided meditations walk you through a meditation, and help you find your own calm and peaceful mind.
