New Delhi, June 16: In order to beat the side effects of increasing pollution, including asthma and lung infection, the Aryamar Wellness has opened the city's first Oxygen bar here, to address the problem.
"Though the concept of Oxygen Bar is new in India, it is common in other parts of the world. Many countries use Oxygen Bars and Aromatherapy for holistic and recreational use.
'It is believed that a 10 to 15-minute session of an oxygen therapy displaces harmful free radicals, neutralises environmental toxins and destroys anaerobic infectious bacteria," said OxyPure Bars co-founder Aryavir Kumar.
"In OxyPure bars, the user will be presented with a selection of aromas or flavours, with different benefits of each aroma explained. A cannula, which is a flexible tube that splits into two small prongs, fits loosely around the head and the prongs rest just inside the nostrils to deliver the oxygen. The user has to breathe normally and relax," he said in a statement here.
"We are planning to come at Terminal 3 IGI. Our vision is to open 50 oxygen bars per year in India, as the space we require is a maximum of 150-200 sq ft, for a four-seat station. Youngsters are liking the concept and trying out different oxygen therapies.
"The 15-minute session at the bar in Select CityWalk Mall, Saket, is quite pocket-friendly and comes at an affordable price of Rs 300-400," Mr Kumar added.
OxyPure is targeting young mobile Indian population, travellers, females, and corporate honchos. The group is targeting annual revenue of Rs 10-15 crore by the end of the financial year. They are setting up 50 stores pan India.
The group is targeting to set up Oxygen stations in fitness centers, as it helps with muscle recovery, metro stations, train stations, co-working spaces and malls.
He also shared that the group is in final talks with a leading hospitality chain of India, where oxygen counters will be established, to provide relaxation to the travellers. Oxygen therapy also helps travellers suffering from jetlag, he added. (UNI)
