Acupuncture is extremely valuable for all pain conditions of any nature. I would recommend that she finds a practitioner in her area and tries a short round of treatment. Something on the order of 3-5 treatments would be enough to either fully resolve the issue or at least change it significantly enough to know that it is helping.
I could recommend some points for acupressure, but acupuncture is generally superior as you can stimulate multiple areas at once and use local points (i.e. where it hurts) and distal points which effect the body on a more systemic level to relieve the pain and tension.
There are a few articles I've done that you might find helpful:
