In brief: Relax
A program of flexibility and stretching e.
g. Yoga can help. Chronic tension in this area can also be referred from the neck, in which case an x-ray can be revealing. Finally, this can be a sign of general stress in your life. Make sure there isn't something going on in your life that may be driving this specific muscle issue for you.

In brief: Stretch
Because the rhomboid muscles are between the shoulder blades, usually doing stretching by hugging yourself by crossing your arms.
Massage therapy, along with nsaid's and moist heat will also be benificial. Good luck.
