Nicotine provides smokers with a feeling of ease, as well as a way to calm nerves, which is very addicting in the high stress lifestyle many people live today. While quitting smoking, it can be helpful to have a healthy, alternative way to relax to make the process of quitting not feel as stressful.
Massage therapy is a healthy outlet for stress and a great way to relieve tension. Unlike cigarettes, there are good long-term benefits of massage therapy, such as pain, stress, and muscle tension relief. Massage therapy has also been shown to help improve sleep for those who suffer from insomnia, as well as improve quality of life for people with chronic headaches.
