“Carleton is amazing. I had never been to acupuncture before, but he made me super-comfortable. Scheduling was quick and easy, and he listened carefully to my issues before making any assumptions or recommendations. I came with a sciatica issue, and left feeling 100 times better than I’d gone in. I... Read more »
Carleton at Alpine is an expert healthcare provider and healer. His treatment made me feel so much better–be it for burning eyes or dis-balance. I am very impressed by the amount of time he spends. I entered a deep relaxing state under his care, which makes me feel refreshed and... Read more »
“I have been treated by Carlton for almost 4 weeks — within the first two treatments I was essentially pain free and able to move pain free while suffering from fibromyalgia and arthritis for years. Carlton’s treatment is scientific and he informs the patient on the first visit how his... Read more »
“I have osteoarthritis of the knees and when I came in to seek treatment, both knees were pretty swollen and stiff. On the first treatment, I had better mobility and the swelling was better.

“Caring, highly effective treatment I was new to acupuncture, and was hoping it would help with headaches, anxiety and stress. I was also nervous — needles and non-mainstream medicine, yikes! I asked around for recommendations and was pointed to Carleton at Alpine. It was an excellent decision. In the hope... Read more »

Acupuncture for Kids and Teens
We have been seeing a lot of young patients at Alpine Acupuncture these days, which is WONDERFUL! Carleton has three kids of his own (from elementary to high school age) and is a very active and involved dad. He also coaches skiing on the weekends and has a great rapport with babies (our youngest patient was just a few days old and was treated with craniosacral for feeding issues), kids and teens. We thought we’d let everyone know a little bit more about kids and acupuncture. The “patients” in these photos are our kids, the top photo is Carleton treating our oldest son for torticollis (stiff neck) years ago and the bottom one is our youngest getting a treatment for the horrible headache he got with the flu this year!
Kids and teens are the PERFECT candidates for acupuncture because most parents and coaches don’t like kids to be on strong medicines and pain killers if they can help it. Their young bodies adapt quickly and they heal rapidly with a little helping hand from natural medicine. Some of the kids who are seeing us lately have issues like allergies, migraines, sports injuries and other types of pain. Most kids say they feel the needles just a bit, if at all, and the relief they get can help get them back to being the busy, happy kids they are! Grab a stuffed animal to bring along, Carleton has advanced training in stuffed animal acupuncture 🙂 Feel free to give us a call or ask about acupuncture for kids during your appointment!

Summer finally arrives.
The sun comes out. The flowers bloom.
Most people grab their sunscreen and head outside. But what do you do?
You close the windows, grab your antihistamines and hide in the house.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could enjoy being outdoors?
Allergies are widespread. According to WebMD, 20% of the population suffers from allergies or asthma, and 55% of the population tests positive for one or more allergens. Allergies are the 5th leading chronic disease in the US and cost the US health care system $7.9 billion annually.
If you can’t live with your runny nose, congestion or watery eyes, but you don’t want to take antihistamines or get allergy shots, what can you do to relieve your symptoms?
