A lovely lady and friend came to me just after I qualified as an Acupuncturist with a frozen shoulder. She was unable to lift her arm higher than her head and to rotate it all the way around. She had seen a specialist and he had told her after a scan she may need an operation her scapula joint area. After five acupuncture treatments she was able to move her arm and shoulder clockwise and anti clockwise and was able (although a little painful) to reach up totally into the sky. She went back to her specialist three months later who scanned her shoulder again and to her amazement he told her that she no longer needed an operation on the joint.
