Acupuncture Really Helps

Speaking of acupuncture (since I wrote it about it before), I needed some not too long ago because of my shoulders.  Both my shoulders got so bad I couldn’t lift either one of them up  or reach around my back!  Went to the doctor and he said I had adhesive capsilitis, better known as frozen shoulder.  I got a steroid shot in both shoulders and got sent to physical therapy for a couple of months.

Well the shots made them feel great for several days!  And the physical therapy made them feel better after I did it for a few hours, but then they would stiffen back up.  The therapist said they would get better over time, maybe a year! Damn, I had to do something else!

Enter Michele Joblin, acupuncturist.  I’ve known her for a long time and she’s been practicing for a while so I figured I’d try it out.  I haven’t ever put much thought into alternative medicine, but I figured what the hell.

So I went to her Little Rock Acupuncture Clinic for treatment.  She asks a lot of questions a doctor would ask and then you get on the table.  I wasn’t sure what to think about those long needles she was about to put in me, but they looked pretty thin.  Like hairs.  She proceeded to put them in a number of places on my legs, arms, and shoulders.  You barely even feel anything!  Then she turns on some relaxing music, turns down the light, and you lie there for about 45 minutes.

Then she comes back in and takes the needles out.  I got up and man!  It really took the edge off the pain!  I actually went and play frisbee golf that afternoon!  Probably not the best idea, but you get the picture.  I mean, it didn’t cure me, but it helped relieve some of the pain for a while.

So anyway, if you ever have any kind of pains or anything that regular medicine isn’t helping, it’s worth giving acupuncture a try.  She can help with headaches, back pain, stomach problems, and a lot of other stuff.  Oh yeah, she also knows herbal medicine as well.  So if you need acupuncture in the Little Rock area and need help, try it!

I love Acupuncture!

Acupuncture is an ancient kind of Chinese medicine that has been exercised for hundreds of years. Generally used to deal with physical discomforts, acupuncture in fact has a variety of uses that range from dependencies, to injuries, to disease prevention. If you are thinking of attempting acupuncture, this article will provide you a much better concept of its numerous perks.  My favorite acupuncturist is Michele at Joblin Acupuncture.


Acupuncture is most generally understood to deal with physical discomforts such as muscle pains and arthritis. There are many sorts of arthritis, but each have a different acupuncture treatment. Nevertheless, the healing effects may differ from person to person. Acupuncture for arthritis often takes numerous sessions as well as takes a bunch of cooperation with your specialist for a good outcome.

Various other discomfort associated conditions that can be treated by acupuncture are severe headaches and also migraines, acute backaches, shoulder and also neck pains, leg discomforts, trapped nerves, muscle mass associated injuries, after surgery, carpal tunnel syndrome, sporting activity injuries, menstrual discomforts, tooth pains, abdominal pains, and rheumatic discomforts.


Acupuncture is extensively suggested for signs and symptoms of depression and anxiety such as irritability, sleeplessness, loss of appetite, loss of passion in social activity as well as suicidal tendencies. Acupuncture is believed to ease tension but improve flow of power that could be creating the depressive signs and symptoms. Improvement in signs can be viewed as early as the initial session. Specialists have actually found acupuncture to be a helpful complement to various other kinds of depression treatment such as emotional counseling, but much healthier than chemical options such as anti-depressants.  Check this out if you need a Little Rock Acupuncture clinic.

Sleep problems

Acupuncture has become a prominent choice to common treatments such as prescription drugs. It works at the nerve centers, unwinding and also soothing your senses. Acupuncture is believed to be a safer course for sleeping disorders because it revives your natural resting cycle via natural methods and not through chemicals, which can become an obsession. Utilizing acupuncture for sleep problems usually starts working after the very first session. The therapy is normally extended for a time period, till your body returns to its natural resting pattern.

Inability to conceive

Studies reveal that acupuncture is a useful type of complementary therapy for females who are going through therapies for fertility problems. Acupuncture is thought to alleviate the stress and anxiety of ladies undertaking fertility treatment. Likewise, acupuncture’s success in assisting fertility is a lot more noticeable in in-vitro fertilization. Furthermore, the number of miscarriages has been found to be reduced for ladies that do acupuncture.

If you are suffering from any one of the disorders discussed above, acupuncture could simply be the solution for you. Acupuncture is harmless, as well as understood to promote wellness and also a sense of well-being. It is a healthy and balanced, chemical-free alternative to conventional types of medical treatment.  Herbs can also help in some situations.  For Little Rock Herbal Medicine check out Michele’s clinic.

Hello, we are the Blooms and we like living a healthy fulfilling life.  This is going to be a site about all things Health and about healthy living.  So it will have a wide variety of topics and information on it.  Mainly we will cover things that can enhance your well being.

Healthy organic foods, exercising, holistic methods, disease prevention and control are just some of the topics we will discuss.  Hopefully in a fun way!

First, a few things that I like that enhance my life:

Massages, acupuncture, pedicures, smoothies, kombucha, playing with my dog, playing with my kid, nature, walking, being with friends, a glass of wine (or 2!), cilantro, the beach, the mountains, a haircut, taking a shower and a million other things!

My new workout regimen is gong to be to do P90x for 90 days, then P90x-2, then p90x-3, then start in on the insanity series.  Then I won’t get burned out on doing any one thing for too long.  Probably throw in some yoga too.  And of course ride my bike and go hiking through the woods right by my house.  The goal is to stay active and keep moving since I work at a computer all day!

Another goal of mine is to go vegetarian.  I think clean eating is real must for living a long healthy life!  I’ve heard that once you stop eating meat that all kinds of afflictions you may have will disappear!  I don’t care much for meat anyway so I don’t think it will be a big deal.  Except for pepperoni!  I love me some pepperoni!

Another goal is to learn another language and to play a musical instrument.  I’ve read that these things are good for the brain because it causes your brain to have to do things differently than it’s used to so it helps to keep it challenged and growing.

I’d also like to start growing my own food and maybe have some chickens.  Fresh veggies from the garden would be awesome!  Add some fresh eggs and BAM!  Dinner!  Maybe get a greenhouse to have a garden year round.

Some day I’d like to have my own vineyard to grow my own grapes and make my own wine.  There’s just something about walking around a vineyard clipping the vines.  Very soothing.

So Anyway, that’s just kinda me rambling but that’s just some of the stuff we’ll be covering here.  Talk to you soon!
