Alpine Acupuncture will be closed from August 26-30th, 2019 while we are away at our annual trip to Manzanita Beach in Oregon. We are looking forward to boogie boarding, beach fires and smores and relaxing with our extended family. Hope you can find time to put your feet up and enjoy the gorgeous weather before the next school year and fall come barreling our way. We will be back and open for business on September 2nd, Labor Day! Feel free to call: 425-391-7777 or schedule online: www.alpineacupuncture.com and we look forward to seeing you all on our return.
Statistics show eight out of 10 people will experience low back pain at some point during their life. Seeking medical treatment for back pain is very common. Typically back pain is fleeting and can be easily resolved with rest, heat and an occasional anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. However, once the damage is done, the recurrence of back pain can be as high as 50 percent. Part of this is because as we age, things like muscles and tendons become less flexible and pliable. It is also very well known in the United States, people are too sedentary and this leads to excess weight gain that can create added pressure on the body, especially the low back. continue reading
First of all, we hope all of our patients are warm and safe and have had plenty of good food and good books over the past few weeks. This winter has been challenging and magical in equal measure! Wow!
For all of you who made it in for appointments- thank you! And a small request- once life returns to semi normal in the next few weeks, take a moment to think about your favorite small businesses in Issaquah and our surrounding areas and try to visit them if you can. All small businesses suffer during storms and large weather events and this one was particularly hard on them, because even if the business was able to open, patients and customers couldn’t necessarily get in.
So, when you can safely be out and about- buy a cup of coffee from a locally owned shop, stop in to a mom and pop owned restaurant, and/or book an appointment with your favorite chiropractor, massage therapist or acupuncturist 🙂 If you don’t need coffee or a treatment right now, we (and all the small businesses in our area) would love it if you could send a friend in, write a review or just talk to people you know about how much you love your favorite spots. Small favors like these can keep businesses thriving even when the unexpected strikes. Thank you!
HOURS: We are open next week February 20-22 (Wednesday thru Friday) 10-7, Carleton has already planned to take Monday and Tuesday for President’s day off to visit with out of town family 🙂 We would love to see you later that week to share stories of the winter wonderland!
