A common condition that we are presented with as therapists is Frozen Shoulder (also known as Adhesive capsulitis). It is a painful and disabling condition that often causes great frustration for patients and caregivers due to slow recovery. This chronic painful condition, that causes loss of motion in the shoulder joint, can have a huge impact on the lifestyle of the client, lasting for as long as 2 years. Sufferers are often told to ‘grin and bear it’ until it goes away but few are told that massage can help!
Treatment for a frozen shoulder varies depending on the stage of the condition and the severity of the pain and stiffness. It is important for the massage therapist to have a good understanding of this in order to provide effective treatment.
This one-day workshop will give you the knowledge and confidence to address the presenting problem and to be effective in your treatment for your client and assist in their recovery. This will then enable them to return to full function without surgical intervention and painful injections.
During this workshop we wil cover the following:
- 22 muscles that can potentially cause pain and restriction in movement of the shoulder capsule
- Anatomical landmarks and structures – skeletal
- Assessment techniques – Range of Movement (ROM)
- Treatment techniques to improve mobility and alleviate pain
- Safety considerations
A staggering one million people in the UK suffer from frozen shoulder each year and yet most massage therapists have no idea how to treat it. Be one of the few who can!

The workshop will be largely practical in content and as a result, you will be required to wear appropriate clinic workwear for the duration of the course. This is a largely hands-on day allowing sufficient time to practice and perform the techniques under the guidance of the tutor. During the course you will partner up with another therapist and will get the chance to perform the techniques taught as well as being the recipient. Understanding what the technique is supposed to feel like is an invaluable tool.
