This client, in middle age, complained of restricted movement, pain and stiffness in the shoulder a condition that she had suffered for many years. She was also in the latter stages of the menopause which resulted in her suffering from palpitations, hot flushes and night sweats.
I made a diagnosis of frozen shoulder but believed that this was caused by her hormonal imbalance due to her time of life. The key to helping her with her frozen shoulder was to control her menopause symptoms as each time that she came to see me her shoulder pain was different.
Using a mixture of acupuncture, cupping and moxa her condition gradually improved to give her better movement and quality of life.
