Body Stress in the Arms and Shoulders

The Shoulder Joint

Because of the design of the shoulder joint, it allows for a wide range of motion and therefore could be easily stressed, and re-stressed. Reaching above the head, stretching the arm backwards, and jarring effects in sports like tennis may strain the ligaments and muscles of the shoulder, and tension becomes locked into the joint.

The shoulder may be painful and stiff. If the pain has become intense due to build-up of inflammation, the release of body stress would most likely have to be carried out several times over a period of time, to enable the joint to stabilize and heal.
In a long-term case, the shoulder may become “frozen”, with severely restricted movement.

In certain cases, full movement could be restored after only one session, others may require several sessions for complete healing. Therefore, it is advisable to have the shoulder attended to as early as possible.

The Elbow, Wrist and Hand

These joints may be stressed by jarring the arm, as in a fall, by twisting movements, such as using a screwdriver or opening a tight jar, or by vigorous actions like scrubbing or sawing, or continuous repetitive work, like sewing.

Tension can become locked into the elbow joint, between the small wrist bones, or between the hand bones. Carrying heavy shopping bags looped around the fingers, could induce body stress in the joints of the fingers or at the knuckles.
As a result, pain or stiffness will be experienced, and possibly numbness or tingling. There may also be weakness of the muscles when lifting or grasping an object.

I have been going to Retha for Body Stress Release on a regular basis and I cannot explain how my body feels after BSR sessions with her... I can only say that it is how I always imagined my body was supposed to feel ... light, pain free, comfortable. Thank you Retha! You are truly amazing!

Retha is really professional. I had 3 sessions with her just before lockdown... and it was really amazing. I could feel the tension and stress leaving. I suffered from upper back..and lower neck pain for almost 6 months on and off...and it was gone immediately after the first session with her...came back a bit a few days later...but then gone so far after session 3 now for 3 weeks! I can really highly recommend her.

After falling of my horse and collided with steel poles i could barely move. Hurt my shoulder, elbow and coccyx quite badly and extremely sore muscles i went to see Retha. Within hours after my first session i could move around and sore muscles were not as bad. She also pointed out some other issues i had and worked on them as well. Within a few days my elbow and shoulder were good to go and i could go back to my normal routine of riding and working.
