I did Quantum-Touch on 8 men and 2 women who were suffering from “
Also called adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder is a condition that causes restriction of motion in the shoulder joint. The cause of a frozen shoulder is not well understood, but it often occurs for no known reason. Frozen shoulder causes the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint to contract and form scar tissue.
There are 3 stages of frozen shoulder:
- Painful/Freezing stage: the most painful stage of a frozen shoulder. Motion is restricted, but the shoulder is not as stiff as the frozen stage. This painful stage typically lasts 6-12 weeks.
- Frozen stage: During the frozen stage, the pain usually eases up, but the stiffness worsens. The frozen stage can last 4-6 months.
- Thawing stage: The thawing stage is gradual, and motion steadily improves over a lengthy period of time. The thawing stage can last more than a year.
Clients ages ranged from 55-74 years of age. The amount of time that they had painful shoulders ranged from 4-8 months in length at the time they saw me for the first session. I measured each client for movement away from the body to the side or abduction and also to the front of the body and back of the body, like the motion used in walking.
I broke up my research into 2 groups: 1st group of 5 people got Basic Quantum-Touch only. The 2nd group of 5 got Core Transformation 1 only. I did Quantum-Touch on each person for 60 minutes per session for a total of 4 sessions. I placed 1 women in each group.
Group 1: Basic Quantum-Touch Techniques
Group 1: Average range of motion before 1st session:
Abduction or away from the body to the side: 20-35 degrees
Frontal movement: 15-40 degrees
Back movement: 15-32 degrees
Group1: Average range of motion after 1st session:
Abduction or away from the body to the side: 40-75 degrees
Frontal movement: 25-65 degrees
Back movement: 22-45 degrees
Group 1: Average range of motion after 4th and final session:
Abduction or away from the body to the side: 90-130 degrees
Frontal movement: 90-135 degrees
Back movement: 35-45 degrees
Group 2: Core Transformation I Techniques
Group 2: Average range of motion before 1st session
Abduction or away from the body to the side: 18-36 degrees
Frontal movement: 15-35 degrees
Back movement: 10-30 degrees
Group 2: Average range of motion after 1st session
Abduction or away from the body to the side: 50-90 degrees
Frontal movement: 30-75 degrees
Back movement: 25-35 degrees
Group 2 Average range of motion after 4th and final session
Abduction or away from the body to the side: 120-165 degrees
Frontal movement: 110-175 degrees
Back movement: 34-55 degrees
What I found is a steady improvement with the Basic Quantum-Touch Techniques, but when I used the Core Transformation 1 techniques, the gains were much quicker. The final ranges that I noted for the 4th and final session in 2 cases I had almost reached those numbers by the end of the 2nd session. I had taken before and after measurements with each session.
Is it hard to focus for 60 minutes doing Core Transformation work? Yes it is, but as you practice and get more better with it, the better the results you will have. I was able to get my clients back the range of motion in 4-60 minute sessions. If you ask a physical therapist how long it would take they will tell you months of therapy in the clinic and exercises at home several times per day.
