“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 »

The season of fall brings cooler weather and shorter days. As with any season, the world adjusts accordingly. Plants begin to go dormant, animals begin scrounging for food to store to get them through the upcoming winter months and humans start winterizing everything.
As fall descends on the land, it reminds us we need to start cutting back on the numerous cooling foods that are consumed during the summer months. Things like raw foods, salads, juices and fruits should be decreased because they can create too much cold in the body, according to traditional Chinese medicine. continue reading
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!
