Are you familiar with doweling? It's like shiatsu massage that helps you get rid of right knots, but you can do it yourself. You'll just need a stick 1 1/4 " in diameter, about elbow size.
I've used it a lot in the first years of yoga practice, when I was super stiff all over.
Now it's I use it more sparingly, in extreme tightness cases.
Full disclosure: this is gonna hurt like a bitch.
The point of excersise is to learn to go through pain and be able to relax and breathe. It's a skill we really need in life.
Method is learned from David Bruni in my YTT few years ago. I believe David is the inventor of this method.
