“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. I continued the treatment as prescribed and continued with my exercises given by a physical therapist,... Read more »
“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 »

Trip of a Lifetime!
If you’ve called the clinic or sent me an email, you might know this already, but I am on the trip of a lifetime, rafting the Grand Canyon with my dad (pictured above). We’ve both had this trip on our bucket list for many years and this year my dad finally talked me into going with him (he thinks he may soon be too old! Ha!). Our trip was arranged by Arizona Raft Adventures in case you want to look into it. I’m looking forward to getting some great hikes in, rafting some awesome rapids, learning about the amazing geology there and bonding with my dad.
The clinic is closed from September 11-September 19th and we will be open W-F that week I get back for appointments and then back to a normal schedule for a good long time! Thanks so much for making it possible for me to go on this amazing adventure. If you need to make an appointment for when I get back (please do, the schedule is filling up fast!)- the easiest way is to go to www.alpineacupuncture.com and book an appointment online. If you need to call or email, I’ll have someone checking messages every few days.
See you soon-

Thanksgiving is a great meal. Friends and family come together to give thanks and celebrate the harvest season–
…and to overeat.
All of us know the feeling of eating too much, too heavy, too rich. When we should be enjoying our time with loved ones, we are uncomfortable. We exasperate our health conditions and catch a cold. We put on weight and feel lethargic.
I’m not going to tell you to make dramatic changes to your Thanksgiving meal. Usually that doesn’t work—and besides, it’s no fun.
Instead I suggest you just make small choices. Pick one food instead of the other. Make little positive choices and they’ll add up to a healthier, more enjoyable meal. continue reading
Your mother was right–say thank you.
Scientists have now proven what your mother always knew–it’s good to be grateful. Being grateful is more than just politeness; it’s actually good for your health and well-being.
In a study by Robert A. Emmons, of the University of California, and Davis and Michael E. McCullough, of the University of Miami, people who kept gratitude journals showed higher levels of health and well-being than people who journaled neutral events or counted hardships. After 2 months, the people who journaled their gratitude felt more optimistic and happier than their control counterparts. They reported fewer physical problems and spent more time working out. People with neuromuscular problems who did the same thing fell asleep more quickly, slept longer and woke up feeling more refreshed. Even their spouses noticed the difference!
How can you cultivate gratefulness even if you’re a glass-half-empty person?
