In brief: Yes
Although my general treatment is physical therapy, tennis elbow braces, anti-inflammatories, cortisone injections, and rest; i often use massage (especially transverse massage) and many of my patients have had success with acupuncture.

Acupuncture and Prolotherapy DEFINITELY help cure tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis.

In brief: Therapy
I would suggest physical therapy.
You can calm your symptoms with modalities such as ultrasound and stim. Then you can work on the appropriate strengthening exercises and stretching to prevent recurrence.

I have had very good succcess with a small local steriod injection on the lateral epicondyle. You want to see a physician with experience with this injection.
