Welcome to Alpine Acupuncture! The Acupuncturist on staff is Carleton Magus, a Licensed Acupuncturist and Certified Chinese Herbalist. He has proudly served the cities of Issaquah, Sammamish, Snoqualmie, Newcastle, North Bend and the surrounding area for 6 years.

Acupuncture

Carleton utilizes the Balance Method of Acupuncture developed by Richard Teh-Fu Tan, O.M.D., L.Ac. It is a highly effective form of acupuncture based on the I Jing, one of the oldest Chinese philosophical books.
Carleton’s clinic manner is welcoming and his acupuncture style is very gentle. He prides himself on being a good listener, taking time to understand each patient. The experience of acupuncture is not what you might expect (the needles are the size of a human hair), most people barely feel the needles or get an occasional dull and achy sensation, much like that of a deep tissue massage. While you lie on the soft treatment table you will experience a calming effect from the acupuncture. To heighten this experience the lights will be turned down and relaxing music will play in the background.

Come into Alpine Acupuncture and experience the natural healing art of acupuncture, and leave feeling healthy and balanced.
