Every wonder how you get those pesty knots in your muscles? Knots are caused by various muscle fibers sticking to each other and become adhered. Knots can be a hard lumpy feeling. Muscle knots are common but doesn't mean they are normal or harmless. Chronic stress on our muscles creates microtearing of muscle tissues, which can create scar tissue. Massage can help with the release of the knots within your muscle and help give you relief. After a massage you always want to drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins being released during the massage.
