The Story of Jenny’s Frozen Shoulder


Jenny's left arm was almost useless and she was unable to fasten her bra or carry anything. She was also in constant pain. Jenny has always been a very fit athletic person, now unable to who couldn’t run 'Jacob's Ladder' even once, or go line-dancing that she did two or three times a week.

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.


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 time to heal.

How did kinesiology provide a quick recovery?


This is an indication that emotions can be stored in our bodies from past events or trauma for many years. Then some trigger occurs to awaken bottled up or stuck emotions. These may have no relation to present emotions or events in life. However 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 kinesiology 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.

Jenny didn't need 12-18 months for her arm to heal, nor did she need regular physiotherapy.

Although the exact connection was never identified (as it would be in psychology or counselling as in 'talk therapies') the action of acknowledging and releasing emotions that were experienced at a difficult time in her life flicked a switch in her neural network, hence her brain stopped sending pain signals.

Anti-depressants used for Chronic Pain

One of the recent medical additions to chronic pain treatment has been the use of antidepressants. They have been found to not only improve sleep but also to help relieve pain – surely an indication that our emotions and mental health cannot be separated from physical injury.
