How a Hot Tub Can Help You Recover From Travel Fatigue

How a Hot Tub Can Help You Recover From Travel Fatigue

Author: Jacuzzi John

Most people usually sleep much better after a warm soothing bath and improving how one sleeps will considerably help to reduce the effects of Travel Fatigue or even Jet Lag.

Whenever possible you should enjoy a long therapeutic massage in a Hot Tub immediately after every trip or long haul flight. Hydrotherapy not only relaxes your body by opening up your blood vessels, it also helps to rehydrate you.

The relaxing combination of warm soothing water coupled with the Hydro Massage effect produced by a Hot Tub will go a very long way to reviving you and providing the respite so often needed after a car journey or a long flight.

It is a little known fact that at the beginning of a long haul flight the cabin humidity drops from an average of 50% down to 25% and as the flight progresses it comes down to 10% and it has even been recorded as low as 1% at the end of an intercontinental flight. Aircraft cabins are drier than some of the driest deserts on the planet earth. The result of this extremely dry air is dehydration of your body, particularly your skin which can cause discomfort, itchiness and also wrinkles.

During the flight you should drink lots of bottled water and try to breathe moist air from a damp handkerchief draped across your nose. Do not drink alcohol or coffee before or during the flight as these have diuretic properties, which drive moisture from your cells and can cause discomfort.

You should also avoid eating food that is high in fat and salt (most airline meals) and try and stick to food that is high in carbohydrates such as fresh fruit and fruit juice, chocolate and biscuits are also high in carbohydrate. As soon as possible after landing it would be a great idea to get into a Jacuzzi Hot Tub for 20 minutes and let the magic of millions of Hydrotherapy Bubbles and Massage Jets gently sooth you back to normal. Remember to continue to drink lots of fresh water for at least two days after your flight and try and have a 15 minute Hot Tub session morning and evening each day in the week following your flight.

But remember using your Jacuzzi Spa is a great idea anyway irrespective of whether you have been flying. Nothing beats the effect of warm water with Massage Jets to produce the combination to make that perfect Hot Tub treatment so relaxing.

I'm a believer in this technique of recovery. I got back from a nice long flight from Austria to St.Louis. Oy Vey!

I sat in my new Hot Tub for a half hour about a half hour before bed and it helped me fall asleep. It did help with jet lag as well. I got relaxed enough I fell asleep after being up for only 6 hrs.
