Using Acupressure to alleviate Jetlag

Sounds insane doesn’t it?  So insane in fact that had I not heard of its effectiveness from a reliable source (a co-worker), I would never have considered trying it.  But try it I did (on my most recent Ireland-Argentina flight), and most effective did I find it.  Extremely so in fact: thus far, I have experienced no jetlag from the journey (where I would normally spend several days recovering).

So what is this miracle cure?  It involves massaging (or applying pressure to) certain parts of your body, at certain times during the flight.  It’s a little complicated, so I think it best to leave the full explanation to the experts: Jetlag Treatment from NaturoDoc.

Many thanks to Stéphane for bringing it to my attention.
