Looking for the best massage for jet lag? You’ve come to the right place. Here at Dark Massage, we offer many services that could help alleviate the common symptoms, allowing you to restore balance to your routine and in turn, your mind and body. This week, our professional female masseuses take a closer look at the best kind of cure for jet lag.


What is Jet Lag?

Jet lag is a temporary sleep issue you get after traveling across time zones. This is caused by a disruption to the body clock. You’re likely to feel extremely tired and out of sorts due to the abrupt change in your circadian rhythm.

Your body is naturally very familiar to the concept of time and consistently adjusts its processes based on whether it’s daytime or night time. Biologic rhythms define how your body responds to periodic changes in time, so you can see where flying through time zones may cause issues!


Jet Lag Symptoms

Symptoms of jet lag can include but are not limited to:

  • Fatigue and tiredness
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Muscle aches
  • Dizziness
  • Stomach problems
  • Mood changes

The most common of these symptoms are extreme tiredness during the day and the inability to sleep at night time after your flight. The popular recommendation is to allow one day per hour of time difference crossed in order to fully recover. However, getting that time off to rest and recuperate isn’t an easy request.

Although it is typically worse the longer your flight, jet lag affects us all in different ways. For some, they hardly suffer and for others, it can completely disrupt their routine for quite a few days after. A massage can help to alleviate these issues.


How A Massage Can Help Jet Lag

Typically, long flights leave you feeling tired, restless, with stiffness in the muscles. After sitting in cramped conditions for a prolonged amount of time, you’re likely to feel uncomfortable and your movement limited. A massage can help to alleviate the tension and relax your muscles, allowing you to return to normal functionality.

One of the key benefits of massage is the increased blood circulation. Healthy blood flow ensures oxygen-rich blood reaches the core elements of the body, which instantly lifts fatigue and lethargy.

Mentally, the best massage for jet lag will allow you to fully relax, helping you in the process of resetting your body clock. Your body will feel out of sync and disorientated, not to mention that travelling can be quite stressful at times. These factors combined can create mental unrest. A massage offers a moment of tranquillity, allowing you to focus on touch and sensation, reducing anxiety and stress and enhancing your mood. This, in turn, can help you to switch off, kick the stress hormones and aid a better night’s sleep.


Dark Massage Services

At Dark Massage, we understand that the best massage for jet lag truly depends on the client. We look at your individual needs in order to satisfy your bespoke requirements. Nuru and Tantric massage are two of the services we would recommend after a long flight. These techniques target the central nervous system and the pineal gland, which increases the production of melatonin, an essential for a healthy sleep-wake cycle. Here’s what you can expect from our qualified masseuses:

The use of aromatherapy and essential oils can aid relaxation during the best massage for jet lag.
