The Secrets Of Travelling In Comfort

Saturday, 21 June 2014  |  Paul

Summer has well and truly arrived! With a heat wave set to last for the next few weeks (fingers crossed!), all we can think about at Health and is soaking up the sunshine. Whether you’re looking forward to sun, sea and sangria abroad, taking a break in the British Isles or even getting back to basics on a campsite, will help you to travel in total comfort.

Firstly, let’s talk about transport. Sitting for hours on a plane/train/coach/ferry/car can be extremely uncomfortable, leaving you feeling cranky and miserable by the time you arrive at your destination. Here are our top three products for a relaxing ride:

The Original McKenzie Airback Lumbar Roll

Best product for those who suffer with back pain.

For those who suffer with back pain, a long journey can be a nightmare. With The Original McKenzie Airback Lumbar Roll, this nightmare will be relegated to the past. An inflatable lumbar roll, The Original McKenzie Airback Lumbar Roll comes flat packed so it is ideal for just popping in your luggage. It even comes packaged in a reusable bag, which is the perfect size for a handbag/rucksack – we think it’ll still be useful when you get back to the office!  These lumbar rolls when used correctly, can prevent and help neck and back pain caused by poor posture.

Inflatable Travel Pillow

Best product for those who suffer from neck pain.

If you want a good sleep whilst you travel, it can often be tricky. You try and turn your head one way whilst gathering your legs into a position that doesn’t twist your body and when you wake you ache all over! Our Inflatable Travel Pillow is a great option to combat this problem. The Inflatable Travel Pillow gently supports the head and cradles the neck. With a soft velour covering, the Inflatable Travel Pillow provides cushioned comfort allowing you to get a great sleep whatever your method of travel. This travel pillow comes flat packed for your convenience.

Airogym Portable DVT Exercise Cushion

Best product for a long flight/journey.

Travelling, especially for extended periods of time, increases the risk of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and nobody is immune. The Airogym Portable Exercise Cushion for DVT is a flat packed inflatable exercise cushion which is easily slotted into your luggage. The Airogym Cushion for DVT has been designed to increase blood flow through the veins in the leg. The more inflated the Airogym, the more pressure needed to move the air and the harder the workout. These active exercises are responsible for pumping fluid from the legs and may also reduce or prevent ankle swelling.

It isn’t just uncomfortable seats that make travelling unbearable sometimes though. Motion sickness and noise can also really affect how good a journey is. Here are two of our top products from

Sea Band Nausea and Travel Sickness Relief

Best for those who suffer from motion sickness.

Don’t let motion sickness affect you any longer! The Sea Band Nausea and Travel Sickness Relief consists of two wrist bands which are made from knitted elastic for comfort. They are effective due to the plastic studs which apply pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point. One of the great features of the Sea Band Nausea and Travel Sickness Relief bands is that they are completely drug free so do not cause any nasty side effects!

Hush Plugz Silicone Earplugs

Best for peace and quiet!

We’ve all been there; the guy next to you is snoring, there’s a baby screaming and the kid in front has got tinny earphones making that horrible tsst tsst tsst noise. Let the Hush Plugz Silicone Earplugs eradicate all this background noise. Manufactured from safe, medical grade silicone, the Hush Plugz Silicone Earplugs are easy to mould and are comfortable for the user.
