Elisabeth solved the problems with her neck

My problems started seven years ago as a consequence of static work. I work in a call centre and I am responsible for searching telephone numbers. Every working day I am sitting in the same position in front of a screen, which is causing pain in my neck and my shoulders. I talked to my work-leader about my problems, but it was not the first time he heard it and did not really want to listen. I kept on working, but in the end I was not able to raise my left arm. Seven years ago I was sick listed.

First I took pills to reduce the inflammation, but the pills were bad for my stomach. I also tried cortisone, but this didn't help either: I kept on being sick listed. I tried physiotherapy and a lot of other therapies, for example warm and cold compresses, osteopathy, acupuncture, but my right arm got worse and worse. Finally I had to go through an operation. By cutting pieces of osseous tissue, the surgeons succeeded in freeing the tensons in my right shoulder. I started physiotherapy again, but this time I felt that my left arm was getting worse so I thought there was no other choice than to wait for a new operation. I found two healers and I actually got better – but only temporarily. In the end my left arm was getting worse again and my neck was locked.

Then I heard about a friend who had tried Qigong and who was going to join the summer course. I thought may be I should do it as well. I asked her what Qigong is and she answered that it basically is simple movements. Other people whom I asked also told me that the focus is on training easy and soft movements.

So I joined the course and after two days my neck was much less strained. Now I can move my head the way I want. After five days I could feel that the pain in my shoulder was decreasing and the mobility in the joint was coming back. It's no longer the same pain and stiffness that I've had for seven years.

I have discovered that it is possible to get results after a short time of training so I want to recommend everybody to try Zhineng Qigong.
