WHAT CAUSES MUSCLE SPASMS OR KNOTS?

When we exercise, work, or when stress brings tension to our muscles, lactic acid and other toxins are built up in our muscle cells.  These muscle cells become clogged with these toxins, preventing fresh blood and oxygen from nourishing the muscle cells.  Thus, the muscle cells swell into the spasms or knots that we all get.

HOW DOES MASSAGE THERAPY REDUCE SPASMS?

With a throrough massage session, the therapist helps to push the toxins out of the spasms and muscle cells.  Massage therapy pushes the toxins into the lymph system and then into the urinary system for elimination.  Now the emptied muscle cells can receive the fresh blood and oxygen the cells were deprived.  This process will help tissues heal to normal.
