Years ago I got a back massage, and the masseuse was disappointed to find only one knot. I understand that knots are permanently flexed muscle.
The only other massage I had was when I had to go get my vagina massaged at physical therapy because it was just all jacked up.
Well, it would seem I no longer carry my tension in my vagina. I complained to my doctor that my shoulder blade, at times, is in sickening pain, and after investigating he said I was all knotted up. (Diagnosis: Knots.) I was glad to hear it.
I told him about the one knot from years before. He said he could feel four knots, and that I need to get a massage. Not by a chiropractor, just a regular massage.
Stupid body. Just can't deal with stress. If it isn't brain lesions, it's shoulder knots.
Now, after that Gary did unearth the Thumper, and applied it to my shoulder blade, until it just hurt way too much. Still today, I made an appointment for a massage.
The masseuse reported finding ... “one tiny knot.”
So that means either I can save a lot of money on massages by having Gary beat me up with the Thumper instead, or the shoulder pain is something else. I vote for the Thumper Cure.
