THE BEST TIME TO BOOK A FLIGHT SAVE BIG ON AIRFARE WITH THIS SIMPLE RULE

In case you haven’t noticed, traveling is expensive . It can feel like you’re signing away your soul when you sit down to plan a vacation. But when it comes to flights, there’s good news: They’re getting cheaper! According to a 2017 report published by online travel company ODIGEO, long-distance trips across Europe fell 7 percent last year. Luckily, the same trend is reflected in North American airlines as they engage in a price war to woo a growing base of ultrafrugal travelers. Still, a $600 summer flight to Honolulu isn’t exactly pocket change. What’s worse, flight prices are slippery; CheapAir.com’s 2017 Annual Airfare Study determined that the fares for any given trip go up or down an average of 71 times, about $33 each shift. When you purchase your flight is nearly as important as where you’re going. But how do you choose a booking window that will maximize your savings?

According to the CheapAir. com study, in which they evaluated 921 million

airfares, the best time to book is 21–105 days in advance of your flight, on average. If you want to get

even more specific, try to book 55–75 days out, and book on a Sunday. Many travelers swear by Tuesday and Wednesday bookings, but as Condé Nast Traveler reports, Expedia and the Airlines Reporting Corporation say that Sunday is the way to go, based on data from billions of flights. Tuesday and Wednesday are usually the cheapest days to actually fly, though. The CheapAir.com study also pinpoints the absolute best windows for specific seasons: 54 days for winter trips, 75 days for spring, 76 days for summer, and 45 days for fall. Of course, these are averages, but if you stick to these rules and check fares regularly on sites like Kayak.com, SkyScanner.com, Momondo.com, and on the handy app Hopper, you can rest easy knowing you’re getting close to the best price possible.

WHAT’S 92 DEGREES AND THE SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS?

Aquatic therapy has been a game-changer for many of our clients. The ability to have individually guided rehab while in the water is a service unlike any other. Once your body is partially submerged, it becomes freed of many limitations. As you move through the water with ease, a licensed physical therapist will take you through specific activities tailored to address your individual needs. The experience itself is amazing, but the benefits are what make this service so unique. These three benefits of aquatic therapy can help you achieve your rehab goals. DECREASED SWELLING The natural pressure on your body from the water acts as a pump of sorts, moving any swelling from its source and recirculating it through the body. This allows the site of the injury to heal more efficiently and gives you relief from the discomfort swelling causes. IMPROVED RANGE OF MOTION Once you’re in our 92-degree indoor pool, you’ll find that the freedom of movement increases your range of motion and

decreases your pain. The buoyancy of the water has the opposite effect of gravity, which means the water will naturally assist with the flexion and extension of your injury site. The temperature of the water also helps relax muscles, which can, in turn, increase flexibility. DECREASED JOINT STRESS Perhaps the best benefit of aquatic therapy is the stress it takes off your joints. When you’re able to limit the impact on your body, you allow the natural process of healing to work more efficiently. Since being in the water removes about 90 percent of your body weight, aquatic therapy becomes a perfect solution for those who have joint pain. If you’re interested in learning more about aquatic therapy, reach out to us. Our staff will be happy to walk you through any questions you may have and help you decide whether or not this is the solution you’ve been seeking. This service is covered under most insurance plans, so call us today!
