The Story of Jenny’s Frozen Shoulder


The doctor had diagnosed a frozen shoulder saying it would take 12  -18 months to heal and required physiotherapy  - Jenny thought nope – I’ll go to Jean for kinesiology.


Before her diagnosis she had one short treatment of kinesiology.


After diagnosis she had a full consultation – details below.

Her left arm was almost useless and she was unable to neither fasten her bra nor carry anything and in was in constant pain. She was also a very fit athletic person who couldn’t run the climb or go line-dancing.


Two weeks later

Two weeks after from this consultation full movement was restored; no pain, just slight range of motion issue with her ‘teres minor’ muscle that needed to heal.

The Explanation for quick recovery


This is an indication that emotions can be stored in a muscle (or other part of the body) for many years and when irritated remember that bottled up or stuck emotion that may have no relation to present emotions or events in life. By releasing these emotions with kinesiology techniques her body was then able to heal, as it wasn’t being blocked by the nervous system.


So what was the ‘Pain memory’? When 23 years old she was on her own with 2 children, having left an abusive husband and had to find work to support herself as all her family was in another country. In treatment we only identify the time of the memory created and have no way of knowing what had happened, perhaps her arm was strained at the time when she was working hard and under pressure looking after two small children with no family support.


One of the recent medical additions to pain treatment has been the use of antidepressant, as there were found to help relieve pain – surely an indication that our emotions and mental health cannot be separated from physical injury.
