I can’t move my arm much because of the pain and stiffness…

Frozen shoulder can be a very painful condition that is debilitating for a long period of time and requires regular and early treatment.

There is no known ‘cause’ of a frozen shoulder but we believe it can be likened to the idea of our bodies slowly ‘rusting’ or becoming more immobile and stiff due to soft tissue hardening.

In the case of frozen shoulder, what often happens is the joint capsule thickens and stiff bands of tissue (called adhesions) can develop. The tissues of the joint become compromised with a consequent reduction of function.


What to do about it?

Frozen shoulder will get better over time, but if left untreated can take up to 3 years to improve.

Here at Thrive we use Tui Na massage and acupuncture alongside a guided physical exercise program to help restore motion and health to the tissues of the joint.


What can I do to prevent it happening?

You may have to learn how to move your body in a less taxing and more efficient way in the future and we can help you to do this.


What do you need to do now?

“I had suffered from back pain (sciatica) for 8 years on and off. During a particularly painful episode I decided to try acupuncture and i really can’t recommend it enough – I had six treatments with Ross over six months ago and I haven’t experienced any back pain since.”

Cinnamen, Shoreditch

“For years I have suffered neck pain, back pain, migraines and felt constantly tired and drained, but after a few sessions of acupuncture with Ross the migraines have finally stopped, and my day to day working life has become so much easier. I highly recommend Ross as a skilled practitioner. He has been a wonderful support also for the emotional stress that is a result of my years of pain.”

Could I please request a bottle of you magical tincture for the bladder. My condition is a 1000x time better but it is just for those occasions when I feel I need a little extra help alleviating any niggling discomfort.


Fixed from physical pain, fixed emotionally, more energy, perspective and the will to get back up and live another day. This may all sound very big but it's what happens... there are other days when I just need a "top up" and that works fantastically too! So what ever you are going through from a bit of tiredness to a life crisis I
