Passengers will be able to board their flights far more relaxed than in the past following the opening at Sydney Airport of a new flexology centre at the T1 International terminal in partnership with Stretch Studio.
Designed to enhance mobility and well-being through assisted stretching, Stretch Studio provides passengers with a unique opportunity to undertake a personalised session with a flexologist before boarding their flight.
Flexologists employ a range of techniques to prevent stiffness and soreness from extended flight times.
Making use of gentle pressure on limbs and holding stretches, they work to lengthen muscle fibres, increasing blood circulation, decreasing the risk of cramps and deep vein thrombosis, and combating pre-flight anxiety by releasing endorphins into the body.
Glyn Williams, general manager retail for Sydney Airport, said the new Stretch Studio was the perfect concept for passengers travelling long distances, with many international flights in the air for more than 10 hours.
“We’re very pleased to welcome Stretch Studio to T1, which offers a unique and convenient way for customers to feel physically and mentally more relaxed before they board,” Williams said.
Stretch Studio director Yaron Remen said: “I’m thrilled to bring Stretch Studio into Sydney Airport’s T1 International terminal. Everyone who travels long distances on an aircraft knows that whether you’re in first class or economy, stretching before a flight is very beneficial,”
Sydney Airport is Australia’s major gateway airport, serving more than 43.3 million passengers a year and connecting Sydney to a network of over 100 international, domestic and regional destinations.
