Larger Cessna Citation Hemisphere Cabin For Alternative Medicine?


Info on The Citation & MoreOne of our colleagues is seriously considering adding an alternative medicine practice to a new private jet called the Citation Hemisphere from Cessna (parent company Textron). This is definitely an unconventional idea that has never really been done before. However, it kind of makes sense for anybody who has back problems that fears traveling on long flights. In some cases they don’t even have to be a long flight it can just be for a few hours and back pain can increase and becoming uncomfortable for anyone with chronic pain.

For instance, I recently took a trip from New York to Los Angeles. The flight was approximately 6 hours although I was regularly standing up to stretch so that I could give my back a break from sitting. Imagine if rather than just lying down I was able to receive an acupuncture treatment or even a rolfing session while on my flight for my next business meeting? I’m not too sure anybody else has thought of this and I believe it would be an outstanding idea.

Back Pain Tips On A Plane

Lufthansa Mercedes InteriorThere are countless people who fear sitting down on long flights who I believe would love the option to receive treatment instead of accumulating pain. We understand that this would not work too well on commercial flights, although with the new citation having a wider cabin than most long range jets, we figure that this may be an option on the Cessna Citation Hemisphere air craft.

If a private jet can be built for the ultimate leisure, then why can’t it be built for the ultimate healing while traveling? No longer do you have to worry about deteriorating your health while on the plane. You could do those long trips for up to 10 hours and if you do start to feel any pain in your lower back you can immediately request to schedule an alternative medicine session.

At the end of the day this is just a vision that we have and it may not see reality for a few more years. It is however something that we would like to implement on private jet aircraft sometime in the near future.

Acupressure Points & Their Effectiveness


Acupressure Points of the HandAnybody who has been to an acupuncturist has probably heard about the pressure points that are located throughout the human body. These points travel along with a call meridians different areas in your body which have somewhat of a cause and effect type of feeling. What I mean is this. If you were to pinch and area between your thumb and inside of your palm you could relieve the pain that you feel somewhere in the back of your neck. This is just an example and probably isn’t correct, however it is a good idea of what the concept is about.

When I first heard this from my acupuncturist I really didn’t think that it could be that beneficial to relieving my pain. Although not a long term solution, massaging or triggering your pressure points without the use of a needle can give you short term relief.

In my honest opinion, I truly believe that acupuncture will always be a much better treatment. Although this is a great way to quickly relieve any pain that might start to cause problems as your day continues.
