Tight Muscles are readily treated with acupuncture. Just needling a tight muscle will relax it. If that doesn’t work well enough, using the proper frequency of electro-acupuncture can be tried. In additioin, there are certain points that work through the nervous system to relax certain muscles or muscle groups. Of course massage works too, and all acupuncturists should know how to massage the muscle and points that control that muscle. Also can be used is a thing called “Running Cupping” which uses suction to achieve an effect similar to a deep massage. So you see acupuncturists have many options to help this condition.
