Overcome The Fear Of Flying & Air Turbulence With Massage Therapy


So the holiday season is just around the corner and you plan on flying? You’re going on vacation, a business trip or visiting family and friends?

Do you have anxiety and fear of flying?

How To Cope With The Stress Of Flying?

Some people resort to anxiety reducing drugs or a sleep aid without doctor consultation while on a plane. Others go with the few cocktails or adult beverages to relax themselves. Some bring along headphones for soothing music or their own blockbuster movies to take the edge off from the fear of flying.

Flying takes a toll on our bodies from the lack of movement. Being immobile and dehydrated is not a safe combination. Make sure you hydrate your body with water.

Massage therapy before your flight is a great alternative to reduce back tension from the locked-in upright seating.

Didn’t get the aisle seat for better legroom?

Massage provides blood circulation to your legs to minimize possible cramping in the economy class window seat with no legroom.

Afraid of turbulence?

Sometimes facing your fears helps too knowing what to expect – the up and down burst of motion is a bumpy ride but it will even out soon. So don’t work yourself over turbulence – stay calm. The pilot has everything under control.

Massage can provide relaxation and breathing techniques when having a panic attack during turbulence and helps to calm your pre-flight nerves. With Massage you can learn stretches to help reduce soreness and tension.

Here are a few tips to shake it off:

  • Neck roll
  • Bend forward while sitting in the seat
  • Shoulder roll
  • Lift your knee up while sitting
  • Extend your leg
  • Clench your buttocks
  • Raise your arm
  • Massage/Rub your hands
  • Rub your thighs
  • Rub your calves
  • Touch your shoulders with your opposite hand
  • Twirl your ankle
  • Get up and walk around
  • Take a bathroom break
  • Take a walk when the fasten seatbelt sign is off
  • Wear compression socks
  • Wear comfortable clothing
  • Don’t Forget To Breathe and Keep Your Seatbelts Fastened!
