every now and then I get a message to loosen my back and prevent/get rid of back pains. But it seems like more and more often the messuse will find a knot in my muscle and repeatedly press on it and pop it against my bones. the process is sort of pain full. I end up leaving with a tender and sore back, when i had gone in feeling mostly fine.

Why dose this method of back message seem to be so popular? Ive tried many different places and they have all done this to some degree.

How can I avoid places that do this?
