    yes, I have done this with some success.

    Lay on your bed (yours might not work, since I think it is on the floor?). Lay on your back with your head and shoulders hanging off the bed and your arms stretched out over your head..use the edge of the mattress (conventional...might not work with a temperpedic) or the corner and move your upper body around to massage the knot against the edge. You might be able to do it with another piece of furniture or door frame too. I find hanging allows me to relax and stretch my neck muscles, which are prone to tighten.
    Type 6w5 sp/so/sx I think..I have not fully explored this and just discovered it.

    The thing with doing self-massages on the back is that just by moving your arm back there, certain back muscles tense up, so it's impossible to fully relax.

    Seriously, I can't recommend professional massage enough. Since you can handle more pain it sounds like, get deep tissue. I can't. I'm a wimp and can only handle Swedish. But even that helped.

    And make sure they're certified! If they're doing deep tissue and they don't know what they're doing, they can screw up your musculature even more.

    Around my (overpriced) city, it runs about $90 for 60 min. It's totally worth it, especially if your knots are bad enough to make you feel sick.

    soooooo, this thread is sooooo not what I thought it was gonna be about :P... which is unfortunate, cause you being in pain sucks what I would suggest doing before you try the above mattress/furniture method is to first put ice on it for 15-30 minutes, full 30 if you can handle it, 15 minimum... then take a hot bath, as hot as is comfortable for you, THEN try the above method, that helped me pop a knot out of my back easily... but it doesnt work for everyone.
