The O2Chair, developed in France by inventor Jean-Louis Portales from SARL GLOBAL WELLNESS, is a zero-gravity chair with a twist. It gently rocks clients with specific movements up and down the spine, as headphones play meditative instructions to ‘breathe in’ and ‘breathe out’ – all while a stream of pure oxygen is dispersed near the face. The tilt and swing of the chair, as well as a continual oxygen supply to the cells, will effectively improve blood circulation and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system – the body’s natural stress-reducer. Studies have shown that the O2Chair also reduces heart rate and blood pressure while increasing physical energy and athletic performance. It is designed to be used in spa relaxation areas as a tool for encouraging relaxation and mindfulness pre- or post-treatments, without the cost of a therapist.
