Pain in the Neck

I'm not sure if it's from sleeping funny or from pressures at work but my neck and shoulders have been aching for the past week. Before he left town again Andrew said to go have a massage if it's still bothering me by mid-week. Such a nice offer but ugh, massages are so exspenisve. Normally I wouldn't be so concerned but since we're trying to save money and all....it's hard not to think about. I worry that I would only become tenser and more stressed, laying there thinking about the cost.
So I've been thinking maybe I would go buy a heating pad instead and maybe that would help. I did a little research online a minute ago to find any neck pain advice. One sight swore by taking a tennis ball and holding it (with medium pressure) on the most painful knot. Since I didn't have a tennis ball around I picked up the next best thing (?) an apple, and held it on the back of my neck for a good minute. Nothing, except now my apple looks bruised. (too much pressure?)
Anyone have neck/shoulder advice that doesn't involve sporting equipment?
