Reminds me of the Chinese (Asian in general?) practice of having fruit for "dessert" after a main meal. They get quite excited about melon season (think hobbits polishing the pumpkins). :-)

Ice for 10 minutes, then heat directly after that for 10 minutes. Repeat a couple of times every couple of hours. This should relax the spasm. Then lie flat on the floor in the yoga "corpse" pose to let everything readjust.
