Based on the well-established Indian Head massage, our Jet Lag massage is just what you need when you have pain or discomfort in your head, neck or shoulders.
Whether you have just arrived in London after a tiring long-haul flight or suffering neck pain after working too many hours behind a desk or simply have a hangover, this upper body massage treatment can make you feel better.
A lack of sleep or drinking too much alcohol can inhibiting your anti-diuretic hormones. This reduces your body’s ability to absorb water. As your anti-diuretic hormone levels drop, instead of your body remaining hydrating and energised, your body wants to push out water instead. This is one of the reasons we make more frequent trips to the loo when drinking alcohol. As your body starts to become dehydrated, you start to feel drawn out and lethargic. The key to feeling better again is rehydration and proper rest. A softly applied, focused acupressure style massage like Indian Head massage can help with this. Hangovers have many of the same symptoms of jet lag so this treatment can target either ailment.
As well as a particular focus on traditional Indian head massage techniques our Jet Lag or Hangover treatment also utilises relaxing classic massage methods. The aim of this treatment is to calm your mind and to release any stress that may have accumulated in your muscle tissues and joints as a result of the short, sharp shock of long-haul travel or excess partying.
Depending on how you feel, you can either lie down or just sit for your Jet Lag massage. Your therapist will use a range of different movements including gentle stimulation of the pressure points around your head, neck and shoulders followed by slightly deeper kneading of your neck and shoulder areas. The focus is on assisting you reach a more restful position by calmly assisting the restoration of normal blood flow through your body, so that you can return to your happier state of mind.
We recommend you keep a glass of cool water by your side, perhaps with a hydration tablet such as O.R.S Hydration Tablets, and sip it periodically during your massage.
