How To Get Rid Of Shoulder Pain | Self Healing Techniques Series

July 22, 2008 by admin | Filed under Joints, Massage, Self Healing, Su Jok.

Pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint is an extremely common complaint and usually is due to some inflammatory process in the shoulder area.

Typically one first feels a kind of heaviness in the area, accompanied by slight pain, and with time the pain amplifies. The pain is felt the most when one moves their hand in various directions.

Here are the most common causes of a shoulder pain:

  • Cold penetrating the shoulder area

Cold contracts muscles and sinews and therefore causes pain and stiffness.

  • Excessive work or exercise.

A constant repetition of a movement involving the shoulder joint, doing sports or work, often leads to joint deterioration and eventual pain.

  • Accidents.

Trauma can lead to stretching or break of shoulder sinews. One patient slipped on the wet staircase, and used a handrail to prevent falling, putting all of her weight on one arm. She overstretched her sinews, which resulted in an injury, which required a long treatment to heal.


An acupuncture treatment typically gives excellent results in treatment of shoulder pain. But if for some reason you can’t visit your favorite acupuncturist, I’m going to show you how to get rid of your shoulder pain or at least
considerably reduce it.

Using Su Jok theory, the first thing to do is to find the corresponding areas of the shoulder on your hand, and then work on those.

Find most painful points on one or some of areas according to figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 (for this purpose very good to use a massage stick ) and then massage these areas.







This is the same technique as explained in “How to Prevent Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)” step 2.

The next step is heating up these areas with Moxa.

After that application of buckwheat seeds to the shoulder area on the left or right hand. This is the same technique as explained in “How To Get Rid Of Neck Pain” step 3.

    When athletes perform skills overhead (throwing, hitting in volleyball, pitching in baseball, and even lifting weights overhead) but are unable to get extension in the thoracic region the shoulder has to do more external rotation then normal. This constant overuse and over range of motion can lead to mild to serious shoulder issues. Here are some great ways to increase thoracic extension.

    Can I just do massage with the ring and apply buckwheat as Moxa is not available Will I still get the benefit of Sujok Therapy?

      Yes. It’s better to do them all, but partial approach should be beneficial too. Try and see for yourself.
