Sore muscles from inactivity and restrictive seating as well as headaches from changes in altitude and pressure are not uncommon.
A pre-flight massage is a great way to unwind, reduce some of that stress or for holiday makers to shift that mindset and start to relax.
Normally a full body massage is a great idea but focus on areas like the neck, back, lower legs and feet which will promote circulation and reduce tension in some of those troublesome spots.
Here are some of the few benefits of having a Post Flight Massage:
1) Reduce Swelling and Stiffness In Muscles & Joints
Airline seats are renowned for being uncomfortable, and sitting for a prolonged period of time anywhere is never good for the body. Joint tension is the number one concern of travelers post flight, with poor circulation coming in a close second. Thankfully, massage is able to combat both of these issues.
2) It will help with fluid retention
A full body massage is a great way to flush toxins out of your system and this may be even more beneficial when you’ve been on a long haul flight. After hours in the air, fluid can build up in the body, possibly causing you pain and discomfort. A professional masseuse will know how to manipulate the body’s lymph system to help drain the fluid and get you feeling like yourself again.
Air cabin humidity is low (between 1- 20%), which causes dehydration to the eyes, nose, mouth and throat. A massage will not only help to increase your blood flow but the oils your massage therapist will use will help to add moisture back into the skin. After every massage it’s important to drink water, but try to drink even more so when you’ve had a post-flight massage.
4) Minimize jet lag
Jet lag is code for nausea, dehydration, tiredness and irritability, particularly all things uncomfortable. Massage is one of the best things you can do to combat these concerns, as it helps to get rid your body of all its discomforts, making it easier to adjust to your new time zone. If you want to feel extra perky post-flight ask our massage therapist if they can use our premium oil during your treatment. It’s known to promote a sense of well-being and invigoration.
