Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has partnered with Timeshifter to improve guests’ traveling experience. Guests booking directly with Six Senses will get access to the Timeshifter jet lag app, which is developed with Harvard Medical School Associate Professor Steven Lockley, and based on the latest research in sleep and circadian neuroscience.
Timeshifter, which named Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas their official hotel partner, offers highly personalized jet lag plans based on the traveler’s sleep pattern, chronotype, flight plan, and optional preferences such as pre-travel adjustment or the use of melatonin for an even faster adaptation.
Timeshifter incorporates a real world “practicality” filter, ensuring that the advice is realistic and easy to follow; there is also a unique Quick Turnaround feature for business travelers who want to be at their best during short business trips that are not long enough to allow full adjustment.
A notification system provides simple yet powerful advice, even while in flight. Using Timeshifter is a straightforward and empowering experience, and requires no special equipment.
The algorithm behind the new Timeshifter app is already helping astronauts, elite athletes, and top CEOs eliminate jet lag, and perform at their very best. Now, this much-needed tool is available for everyone.
“We all love to feel good when traveling on business or pleasure, but when flying long distances jet lag can cause stress, fatigue, moodiness and restless nights. We’re delighted to partner with Timeshifter and to provide our guests with a state-of-the-art tool so they can get the most out of their time when staying with Six Senses and to be their best after they arrive back home,” said Neil Jacobs, CEO of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.
Jet lag is caused when the sleep-wake and light-dark cycle shift too quickly for the 24-hour circadian clock in the brain to adapt.
Timeshifter not only provides advice to alleviate the disruptive symptoms of jet lag such as insomnia and sleepiness, but addresses the underlying circadian disruption by rapidly resynchronizing the circadian clock to the new time zone and reducing the negative impact of jet lag on other brain and body functions.
“The partnership between Six Senses and Timeshifter is showing what the future of luxury travel can be. By combining the Six Senses Integrated Wellness experience with the Timeshifter jet lag app, based on the latest in sleep and circadian neuroscience, guests will enjoy their vacations even more and perform at their very best on business trips,” said Mickey Beyer-Clausen, CEO of Timeshifter.
Guests who book a stay through SixSenses.com, via email or phone will be given a special code in their reservation confirmation so they can unlock a complimentary jet lag plan inside the Timeshifter iOS or Android app.
The brand’s overarching philosophy, Six Senses Integrated Wellness, provides the best base possible to help guest flourish, in tune with their natural flow – from a wide range of signature massages to high-tech science and high-touch therapies, and from the food guests eat to the way they sleep and the experts they meet.
Wellness is integrated into the whole guest experience, and becomes a joyful way of life. And those guests who wish to go further, can take the non-invasive wellness screening and let Six Senses experts assess their health and lifestyle and recommend a personalized program in steps that they feel comfortable with.
