Bionik Wellness offers cutting-edge therapies to aid in travel recovery

Bionik Wellness offers cutting-edge therapies to aid in travel recovery
August 30, 2023

With the tourism industry recovering post-pandemic and the return of international business and leisure trips, Bionik Wellness offers cutting-edge therapies in two Sydney hubs to aid in recovery of the physical and mental strain associated with jet lag.

With Jet lag being a common struggle affecting productivity, mood, and overall well-being, Bionik Wellness therapies - infrared saunas, cold baths, float therapy, compression boots and hyperbaric oxygen chambers - aid in travel and jet lag recovery.

Bionik Wellness, a leading pioneer in the wellness space, is paving the way for a healthier future by providing innovative, science-based wellness solutions. Combining education, technology, and a people-first approach, Bionik Wellness is dedicated to making wellness more accessible, inviting, and convenient for everybody.

The two Sydney studios, located in Surry Hills and Rose Bay, offer an oasis in the urban jungle, welcoming everyone from busy professionals seeking stress relief to industry experts looking for a scientifically-backed wellness hub.

Bionik Wellness has attracted renowned physical therapists, certified nutritionists, and accomplished athletes who not only utilise the studio's services for personal well-being but also professionally endorse its credibility. 

Key Highlights of Bionik Wellness therapy offerings:

Infrared Saunas: Studies indicate that the infrared spectrum penetrates human tissue more effectively than traditional saunas, making it a potent solution for overall health and relaxation. This process enhances blood flow and reduces cortisol levels, which can help balance sleep-wake cycles disrupted by travel.

Cold Baths: Immersing oneself in a cold bath after a long flight has been shown to reduce inflammation and improve mental clarity. Recent research suggests that cold baths allow oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to return to your tissues to help remove waste products, such as lactic acid buildup which can help travellers with circulation.

Float Therapy: Floating in a sensory isolation tank can provide immediate relief from jet lag symptoms. A 2021 study explains how the weightlessness and sensory isolation experienced during float therapy can reset circadian rhythms and reduce stress.

Hyperbaric Chambers: Initially developed as a treatment for decompression sickness, hyperbaric chambers are now making waves as an innovative solution for alleviating jet lag symptoms. A study by Coste in 2004 demonstrated that mild oxygen deprivation could have a marked impact on melatonin levels after a long-haul flight. This research points to the hypothesis that hypoxia, induced by the reduced cabin air pressure experienced during flights, contributes to the debilitating effects of jet lag. Hyperbaric chambers offer a compelling countermeasure by enriching the blood's oxygen levels, thereby accelerating recovery and facilitating quicker adaptation to new time zones.

Air Compression Massage Boots: Revolutionise your travel experience with a compression massage boot treatment. Designed to boost circulation and decrease inflammation, these boots offer travellers a state-of-the-art solution for overcoming jet lag and travel fatigue. Customisable pressure settings allow for targeted relief, making it a must-try for any frequent flier looking to arrive at their destination refreshed and rejuvenated.

Operations Manager, Berry Vermeer notes "what started as a passion project has now evolved into a movement to help others move, feel, and live better. We are proud to be a hub of wellness in Sydney, welcoming a community of health enthusiasts dedicated to holistic health and well-being."

Bionik Wellness's strength lies in its versatility and commitment to accessibility. Alongside providing state-of-the-art wellness solutions, the studio takes pride in its flexible membership options. These are designed with the consumer in mind, providing a cost-effective boost to health and recovery with the convenience of no contracts and easy cancellation.

With a solid belief in the power of knowledge, Bionik Wellness also prioritises client education. The company goes above and beyond to explain the workings of its machines, technology, and treatments, empowering individuals to make informed decisions about their health.

Vermeer adds "we are not just a wellness studio. We are a movement of individuals striving for better health and a better world. Through our platform, we aim to contribute to a healthier, happier Sydney and beyond."
