Acupuncture Stuff!

Someone asked me the other day to ask Daddy Ron 
what the acupuncture stuff was all about!

Well, it seems that when a human or animal needs a little more than just traditional
medicine to help with what's ailing them, they can go to an acupuncturist.

Needles are inserted into the skin and this careful placement helps to alleviate pain in the body.

Ron has had some lower back pain this year and
decided to have some acupuncture to assist in the healing.

He is always successful with these treatments.
He goes from a real sad sack to a smiling fool! 

I trust you understand that pain is so immobilizing 
and when treatments are available that remedy this,
then my guys are so willing to try it.

I just hope my exuberance wasn't the cause of Ron's sore back.
I can get mighty excited some times and Ron is so easy.
Do you know what I mean?


  1. that was a good did good the photos...

  2. Acupuncture intrigues me but I am a huge fan of yoga and chiropractic care. Proper alignment and stretching everyday. That's what keeps me on go. I think I would like to try the needles though.

  3. Hi Y'all,

    Yep, I know what you mean! We love acupuncture in our house too!

  4. I hope Daddy Ron is feeling fine now. And Sophie this was such a warm and caring post and I'm sure you didn't have anything to do with his back pain. You always just run ahead and he walks behind.--Inger

  5. I have never tried acupuncture in our home but we are firm believers in chiropractic care. I go once a month for "maintenance". I have one mare that was having problems so we had the equine chiro out and she is doing great.

  6. I'm glad that the acupuncture helps Ron's back. And, I'm sorry that he suffers from recurring problems with it. You are a good girl, Sophie, to care so much about your Daddy Ron.

  7. Oh, thanks for the tip on acupuncture. My uncle was successfully helped by it too, but that was so long ago that I'd forgotten. Now with my backache, I guess it's time to look one up:)

  8. My Mom regularly goes to get those needles stuck in her. What's up with that? Brrrrr. Not me. No siree!

    PeeEss: Mom says it helps her and she's glad Ron is going too! I can just bet that you didn't do anything, Sophie!!

  9. Lovely pictures Sophie ! My Grandma uses acupuncture and it works very well on her :-)

  10. What beautiful flowers! Mom wants to try that acupuncture stuff too

  11. Yes, we have found acupuncture to be as effective as Shiatsu therapy which is an aggressive pressure put on the same meridian points as acupuncture. Sophie doesn't know it yet, but if she ever needs it we have the person for her!!! Shhhh.......

  12. I'm glad daddy Ron's feeling better. Careful, now...

  13. I think if it helps, it's worth doing! I am glad that it gives Ron what he needs to keep up with you, then it's a good thing!


  14. Amazing pictures of the snowdrops! I find it amazing that acupuncture works so well. I just can't understand what it does.

    Awww poor Sophie doesn't know what's coming her way!

  15. Beautiful photos!

    Sorry about Ron's sore back. Glad he can get relief though.

    And that's something to remember. Doesn't everyone get back trouble, at some time or other?

    No, not you Sophie. :-)

    Gentle hugs,

  16. Exactly how easy are you, Ron?

  17. You encourage them to have that acupuncture if it works, so they can take you to the beach for walkies.

  18. Sophie I always think about your dads back... I hope the acupuncture helps.
    Your snowdrops are so beautiful.
    Sophie ,, I know that none to your energy caused your dad to hurt,, sometimes it just happens for no reason

  19. Wow, that's a lot of snowdrops, and they are so pretty.
    Sophie, I'm sure all those walks you take Daddy Ron on are good for his back. I'm glad the acupunture helps. There are lots and lots of horses that get acupunture - so many that there are lots of people that make a living treating horses.

  20. Oh, Sophie! You look absolutely mesmerized in that first photo. I guess stopping to smell the flowers make you feel that way. =)

    I'm glad Ron is feeling much better after his acupuncture treatment. Do you think it will also work for ankle pain?

  21. Great post and I'm a fan of acupuncture as well. Don't really enjoy it though!

  22. thank you for 'splainin it to me, luce... i mean soph. it sounds very interesting and i think i am going to look into it. diane and i both have back problems... we're a cuppla gimpies when it all boils down to it.

    beautiful pictures again!

  23. Jennifer...yes acupuncture is a definite YES for ankles...really any part of the body...look into it.!

  24. We've had amazing results from acupuncture for our dogs when they're older and have joint problems. Unfortunately, it has never helped me (I've tried and tried). I'm glad that it helped Ron!


This 'DOODLE' is looking forward to your comment....don't be shy...all I do is SNIFF & LICK!
