Happy Spring!

Alpine Acupuncture will be closed for part of the week for Spring Break. We will be open Monday, April 5th and Tuesday the 6th and closed April 7th-11th to take a short and safe local family trip to the
Olympic National Forest!

Enjoy a safe and healthy break and soak up some of those sunny days!

It’s all about the vaccine!

It’s all about the vaccine!

Carleton FINALLY got his second shot two weeks ago after a series of unfortunate events that delayed it, including the snowstorm and his designated vaccine site running out of doses for healthcare workers. He is now fully vaccinated and we are so happy for him!

We have had a few questions at the clinic and over the phone about what life looks like after the vaccine. We are sure everyone has heard the recommendations that folks that have had the vaccine continue to mask up and limit their contact with others and that is what we will do at the clinic. Regardless of your vaccine status, doctors offices and other healthcare setting will likely require masks into the FAR (at least a year or more) future and we will as well. This is to protect YOU since Carleton sees so many patients per day as well as to protect anyone in your family or our family that cannot yet receive the vaccine.

It is important to remember that the vaccines are VERY safe and VERY effective and we would recommend everyone who CAN get the vaccine gets whichever type is offered to them as soon as possible, but we acknowledge that no vaccine is 100% effective and we know that not all of our patient population is eligible for the vaccine yet. That means we will continue to utilize all of our mitigation protocols (see list below) and we will expect all of our patients to follow them to protect themselves as well as us, so we can stay open and continue to help you be pain free and achieve your health goals.

We are grateful that our patients have done such an amazing job staying safe and healthy this past year.
Thank you so much for your support. Hang in there!
Brighter days are around the corner for us all.

See you at the clinic soon-

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Like many of you, there will be less faces around the table today at our house as we limit the size of our gathering to keep everyone safe, but our hearts are probably more full than they have ever been. Most folks don’t think of independent health clinics like ours as a small business in the same way they may think of a local restaurant or bookshop, but many of us ARE small family owned micro-businesses built from the ground up, and started years ago with a dream of helping people.

For us, as well as SO many others, this year has been the most challenging time we have ever faced while running our clinic for the past 13 years (that not-so-little guy with glasses was a tiny baby when we opened). As he has always been- Carleton is the “face” and heart of the clinic. This year, Dr. Katja Magus is at home supervising remote learning and managing the office and handling the phone. Now that they are older, our kids all help run Alpine Acupuncture behind the scenes. We have help with ironing, laundry, shredding, mailing, stamping and all of them join us in deep cleaning the office regularly, it truly is a family affair.

Thanks to each of you, we are still here at the end (almost!) of 2020, the craziest year ever. We are grateful for you every time we see you in the clinic, every time you write a review for us, or “like” a Facebook post or mention us to your friends or book an appointment for a family member. In each moment, you are making a difference for our family and helping to ensure that we will be here to help you for many years to come.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Eat pie, snuggle up close and make new memories!

It’s that time of year (for checking insurance)

It’s that time of year when many of us are renewing or choosing new health insurance plans. First- make sure your new plan covers acupuncture, if you need help finding a plan, we have a great referral for you. Even if you aren’t switching plans, you may be at the point where you’ve met your deductible and you may have acupuncture visits left to use. Now is a great time to book out your remaining visits for the year, to ensure that you can get a time slot that works for you. We anticipate our clinic being VERY busy during these last few weeks of 2020 since there was so much disruption to normal business and routine visits earlier in the year. Please call us today or schedule those visits online in the next few days to make sure you are feeling great when the new year rolls around!
We can’t wait to see you! – The team at Alpine Acupuncture
