Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5–15 minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.

Q&A with Julie Sabby, Owner
Oxynate Oxygen Bar's owner Julie Sabby describes her business as a recreational oxygen and aromatherapy bar?she also sometimes calls the signature oxygen service a 20-minute vacation. Julie invites guests to sit back in a shiatsu massage chair, while inhaling energizing oxygen and tantalizing aromas. She says customers enjoy the experience so much, they sometimes tell her they'd like to stay forever. Such reactions don't surprise Julie, given the benefits she attributes to her services. "Oxygen is good for alleviating headaches, hangovers, stress, mental fatigue, and body aches," she says, not even acknowledging the fact that it helped her say that sentence.
