My tendonitis was relieved through Trigger Point Acupuncture. Don't scoff! It has its basis in western physiology and is very effective.
Basically, the practitioner (for me, a chiro) will palpate the area for trigger points. A good one will have an idea of where they should be anyway based on the presenting problem. Once finding them, he will needle those points.
When it's done right, the muscle twitches and you feel a dull, throbbing pain. After 3 weeks of this, I was doing everything I was before the tendonitis with the exception of pull-ups. After a few more weeks, I could do pull-ups again. For my problem (tennis elbow, pain around my elbow joint) those were the acid test, he said.
If you live in Northern NJ, I can give you a referral.
I wouldn't be surprised if ART produced similarly good results since the principles are somewhat similar.
