I am a Massage Therapist. Yes, I'm licensed and nationally certified. I'm prohibited from diagnosing OR treating any illness or ailment, it is outside of my scope of practice (yes, even massage therapists have a scope of practice).
If you have something bothering you besides a minor ache or pain, and you want to know what's going on, visit a doctor or chiropractor, that's their job.
Also, I'm NOT St. Christina of the Healing Hands. Don't ask me, after a 50 minute service, twenty of which I spent massaging your back, if I "got rid of" all the knots in your back. I do not perform miracles. How long did it take to GET those knots? Do you still do the same repetitive motions that put the knots there? See where I'm going with this? I can certainly help in the limited time I have, but you need to reassess how you do your work/which sports you do/your posture, AND have regular and frequent massage if you want to "get rid of" all the knots.
This has been a public service announcement from your local massage therapist.
