Tired of sleepless nights and weary eyes thanks to long flights and jet lag? Discover this summer’s must-download travel app. Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has partnered with innovative new jet lag reduction app, Timeshifter® for new and exciting travel experience.

Used by astronauts, elite athletes and top CEOs to eliminate jet lag, those who book directly with Six Senses will get full access to the app – which promises to help them adapt to a new time zone, eliminate jet lag and boost energy from the moment the plane touches down.

Developed by Harvard Medical School Associate Professor, Steven Lockley PhD, and based on the latest research in sleep and circadian neuroscience, Timeshifter offers highly personalised jet lag plans based on guests sleep patterns, chronotype (normal bed time) and flight plan. It also offers users the option of bespoke add-ons, such as the use of melatonin for even faster time zone adaptation.

Timeshifter incorporates a real world ‘practicality’ filter, ensuring that the advice it provides is realistic and easy for guests to follow, enhancing the experience for business and leisure travellers alike. There is also a unique ‘quick turnaround’ feature for business travellers, who want to feel their best during short business trips.

How it works
Jet lag is caused when the ‘sleep-wake’ and ‘light-dark’ cycles 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 drowsiness, but addresses the underlying circadian disruption by rapidly resynchronising the body’s circadian clock to the new time zone. By doing so, the negative impact of jet lag on other brain and body functions is reduced.

This new partnership is perfectly aligned with Six Senses’ overarching philosophy of wellbeing, and provides the ideal base for guests to relax as soon as they arrive.

This partnership offers another dimension to the wellbeing offering available for guests staying at Six Senses resorts worldwide. Adding to the already impressive offering which includes everything from signature massages to high-tech science, high-touch therapies, and programmes that enhance the food guests eat and the way they sleep.

Guests who book a stay through directly via, 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.
