Massage therapy can benefit in more ways than just relaxation. It can provide pain relief for chronic neck and back pain sufferers, provide an alternative to traditional medicines and help with allergies and other illnesses. Recently, it has been suggested that massage therapy is also an effective measure for quitting or cutting back on smoking cigarettes.
Although everyone has a different reason for taking up smoking, research has shown that a vast majority of smokers also struggle with anxiety disorders.
Many smokers claim their habit as a coping mechanism for stress, while in fact smoking creates a cycle of stress throughout the day. Nicotine depletion between periods of smoking leads to increased feelings of stress that are assuaged once nicotine is again inhaled. Smoking then becomes a conditioned response to acute nicotine depletion, a "fix" for the frequent episodes of withdrawal symptoms throughout the day. Long-term cessation actually reduces stress levels for the ex-smoker.
Anxiety and depression symptoms for both men and women trying to quit are conveniently treatable within just minutes by our skilled masseuse ‘ninjas’ (well, modern massage was derived from ancient Chinese martial arts medicine), as you relax into the portable massage chair provided and transform into a long forgotten oasis of calm and tranquillity before your very senses.
