Hear him out.

Ghoz told the Daily Star that one of the best ways to ease your discomfort is by massaging the areas of your body most affected, with a tennis ball.

This can be the small of your back or the soles of your feet.

By taking a tennis ball or a massager on the plane this will help increase circulation.

Massaging with a tennis ball will help increase circulation, which in turn should decrease the pain.

And if you don’t happen to have a tennis ball?

That’s fine, massaging with your hands works too.
