    Can someone suggest a good "self-administered" method for removing the stiffness of shoulder muscle? I am getting a stiff right shoulder (I am right handed) about a month and I would like to find a way to remove this stiffness. I don't want to go to a massage parlor.

    A redhead with long legs in high heels walking on my back always does it for me :D

    Unfortunately I don't have one of those handy. Any other suggestion which can be done by myself?

    Go and see a physiotherapist for an assessment so you know what muscles are affected, what the probable cause is, and what exercises and stretches are safe to do to counteract it.

    Stiffness in one area is often a response to damage or injury in a different area -- the body in protecting the damaged area restricts its motion, causing unfamiliar motion and muscle usage somewhere else, causing pain there.

    Soak in a hot bath to relieve tension, but if you've had it for a month, go see a doctor for a prescription of diclofenac.
