muscle spasms and blindfolding

Has there been any studies studying the affects that being blindfolded has on muscle spasms, I think it relaxes mine. A man named Robin Burn in Wales who website is http://www.theautismcentre.co.uk/, did some unpublished work in the 60's re massage therapy. He thinks muscle spasm is caused by having to respond to sensory before you have time to process it.

    I cant imagine that being blindfolded would help me in any way. If I cannot see where I am i.e. if I am in total darkness, or as a child being blindfolded at childrens parties etc, my feet freeze to the floor almost as if my shoes have been glued. If I have to get up to the loo in the night and cannot see, I just cant move. I have always seen this as my bodies protective system being in overdrive! I can cause problems when arriving home after a night out, I have to wait until my hubby goes in and puts the outside light on before I can get out of the car.

    Hope you find you answer soon.

    Take care, Karen

    Thankyou for changing the place for RADOX that could have been messy. I have found baths help She used to be in the bath at 4 in the morning when cramps got really bad. She also swims regularly which we think helps relax her muscles.
