Oxygen Therapy in a Can – a NEW trend with an old SOUL

In a world where instant gratification is all the buzz, there are some things that simply cannot be rushed. Ever had a rushed Spa treatment, massage or beauty treatment? Not the greatest of experiences I’m sure. The relaxation experience encompasses soft lighting, invigorating aroma’s and soothing sounds to help the mind and body reconnect, to help leave the rat race of our daily lives, if only for a brief time. It is in this bubble of softness, peacefulness and dare I say it, YOUR time, can you actually start to unwind and let things be, one deep breath at a time. It is only fitting that the experience of luxurious, mint infused pure oxygen is enjoyed in moments like these, allowing each individual the uplifting experience of true relaxation.

The principle of the power of a breath is sound, and is taught by all eastern philosophy’s to enhance healing, rejuvenation and well-being. The noticeable effects are, softer rejuvenated skin, relaxation of tight muscles, restful sleep and the overall feeling of well-being. Combined with a SPA treatment, only amplifies the whole point of the experience…ultimate RELAXATION, REJUVENATION and RECOVERY.

The science behind it all suggests that when mind and body are put under physical or emotional stress, breathing becomes more rapid and shallow. This in itself increases the production of adrenaline and cortisol (stress hormone) which creates a cycle of poor breathing and a further lack of oxygen. Oxygen is an ingredient of such monumental importance that without it, life is absolutely impossible. Every cell in the body inhales oxygen and exhales carbon dioxide – a process called respiration. The body’s cells constantly need a new supply of oxygen in order to produce energy and without oxygen, cellular function is impaired, and damage or cell death is possible.

Breathing Premium Concentrated oxygen, oxygenates the blood, helping the body to naturally release “feel good” chemicals known as endorphins. These endorphins help mind and body relax, reducing stress and re-establishing the mind-body connection. Feeling relaxed, refreshed and reconnected has never been easier even after a long tiring day, after a long flight (Jet Lag), or just holidaying in Johannesburg (1750m above sea level). Premium oxygen can only enhance the benefits of a relaxing experience, so if a Time Out is needed, treat yourself with the ultimate experience, ONE Breath at a Time.

CrossFit Open 2018 – Pure O2

Why IT WORKS…

We created Pure O2 learning from the principles of martial arts and meditation. Our goal was to maximise the amount of work done in the SHORTEST space of Time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time OR power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. Focus and concentration is the first thing to fade when the body is put under extreme physical strain. The first signs of this is, form starts to slip, muscles start to burn, breathing becomes uncontrollable and lastly dizziness.   90% of the time, this is not due to a lack of calorie intake but rather a lack of oxygen. The longer the intensity the more the oxygen required to continue at peak levels, and prevent lactic acid build up. When under a competitive environment, cortisol and adrenalin levels are high, further depleting the body’s oxygen levels. Read more

O2 Basics by Dr AA Khan #1

Back To Basics – O2 Physiology

 

The composition of dry air is 20.98% O2, 0.04% CO2, 78.06% N2, and 0.92% other inert constituents such as argon and helium. The movement of this oxygen from the outside environment to the cells within the tissues, and the transport of carbon dioxide in the opposite direction is defined as physiological respiration. Biologically, respiration can also be defined as a process of producing cellular energy. Where oxygen is present in this metabolic process aerobic respiration take place i.e. Glucose + Oxygen = Carbon Dioxide + Water + Energy. Read more
