Acupuncturist, Dr. Michael Chen:

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and improve function. This is done by inserting sterilized, stainless-steel needles (that are as fine as a human hair) into specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to treat a wide variety of illnesses.

Dentist, Dr. Carol Summers:

We all know what a dentist does. The dental profession has done an exceptional job teaching people about wellness. Although some people do not go to the dentist until they are in pain, few people argue that it is a good idea to see your dentist for preventative care and optimal hygiene. How you take care of your teeth is often a great analogy for how you should think about taking care of your spine.


homeopath.jpg

Homeopath, Ivy Wong:

Homeopathy is practiced by a wide variety of health-care practitioners, including medical doctors, osteopaths, naturopathic physicians, nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, dentists, veterinarians, chiropractors, acupuncturists, nurse midwives, and podiatrists, as well as by professional homeopaths,who practice only homeopathy and are unlicensed in any other discipline. You will find a variety of homeopathic remedies at most health food stores, and these can often be an effective way of relieving symptoms without the use of pharmaceuticals.


massagetherapist.jpg

Massage Therapist, Misha Swaroski:

Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy and is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate, and tone the body. Massage works on the soft tissues (the muscles, tendons, and ligaments) to improve muscle tone. Massage also stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the elimination of waste throughout the body. Although a single massage will be enjoyable, the effects of massage are cumulative and a course of massage treatments will bring the most benefits. Massage can help reduce fatigue, leaving the person with a feeling of replenished energy. At its best, massage has the potential to restore the individual physically, mentally and spiritually. Rates can range from $50 to $125 per hour depending on who and where you are receiving your massage. You can expect to pay more for someone who is willing to travel to your home of for a spa massage.


medicaldr.jpg

Medical Doctor, Dr. Aaron Miller:

It is best to have a good understanding of what to expect from your medical doctor. Generally speaking, most medical doctors are trained to diagnose and treat disease with the use of pharmaceuticals and/or surgical procedures. It is best to try to develop a relationship with your primary medical doctor so that the doctor can best understand your values and concerns. Studies have shown that a high percentage of people go to their doctor wanting a specific medication that they may have seen advertised. It is no secret that doctors do not have a lot time to spend and often aren't sure whether you are the type of person who is not interested in lifestyle recommendations and just wants a prescription. Or you may be the type of person who would prefer a more conservative approach and prefers not to take medication unless it is absolutely necessary. Do your best to find a medical doctor who is willing to provide you the care you most prefer.


naturopath.jpg

Naturopath, Jules Martin:

A licensed naturopathic physician (ND) attends a four-year graduate level naturopathic medical school and is educated in all of the same basic sciences as a medical doctor, but who also studies holistic and nontoxic approaches to therapy with a strong emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. In addition to a standard medical curriculum, the naturopath is required to complete four years of training in clinical nutrition, acupuncture, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology and counseling (to encourage people to make lifestyle changes in support of their personal health). A naturopathic physician takes rigorous professional board exams so that he or she may be licensed by a state or jurisdiction as a primary care general practice physician.


nutritionist.jpg

Nutritionist & Dietician, Amy Sanders:

So many different health concerns can be related to the foods we eat, that having a nutritionist or dietician can be a great resource. Nutritionists are professionals who can fully assess your condition including lab testing for allergies and other health concerns. A nutritionist can assist in specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to help you return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? A nutritionist can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.


optometrist.jpg

Optometrist, Dr. Ellie Weil:

Our eyes are our windows to the world. It is recommended that you be aware of your vision and make sure that you can see clearly. Visiting an optometrist helps to ensure that you are seeing correctly and ensures that for those who need are using the proper strength corrective lenses.


personaltrainer.jpg

Personal Fitness Trainer, Vance Strong:

A personal fitness trainer is someone who is trained in recommending exercise programs. This can often include recommending nutritional advice as well. Personal trainers have a variety of certification programs. You may look for a trainer who is a CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) or a CPT (Certified Personal Trainer). The most important thing is to find a trainer with whom you feel comfortable and with whom you would like to work. Knowing what to do is often the easy part; finding someone that will inspire you to stay with the program and keep you accountable to get results is the hard part. Rates can range from $40 to $90 per hour and you can often receive discounts by purchasing packages of sessions.


podiatrist.jpg

Podiatrist, Dr. David Miles:

Podiatrists are responsible for diagnosing and treating foot, ankle, and lower leg disorders, including sports and other injuries. Podiatrists use a range of clinical, surgical, and therapeutic techniques to treat patients. They give professional advice on the prevention of foot problems and on proper care of the foot. Podiatrists work in private practices, hospitals, and clinics.

Testimonials

  • "could barely walk at 9 months pregnant she worked a miracle! My 5 year old is so much better also. Plus when I noticed that the new baby always held her head to one side and had a problem breastfeeding on one side we went in. They were able to fix it and it became so much easier to breastfeed and the baby is so much happier."
    Sarah S.
  • "I will shout it from the rooftop! This place has changed my life. I didn't even realize how much pain I was living with until Dr. D and Dr. J started my treatment. I'm so much more aware of my body and am nearly pain free. I'm stronger. I'm happier. I'm not self medicating anymore. They are miracle workers here! My heart is filled with gratitude."
    Jessica C.
  • "I came to Dr. Dee with such back pain that I couldn't stand up straight and it was hard to walk and stand. I am a hair stylist and a single mother of six kids, I needed to be able to work and function. My doctor prescribed pain killers instead of trying to address the real cause of the problem. Chiropractic has given me my life back!! I couldn't live without Dr. Dee!"
    Wendy Wilson
  • "I began care with Dr. Dee on May 30, 2015, after a car accident that left me with upper and lower back pain and neck pain. I was unable to lift my one year old grand-daughter and missed walking, hikes and taking exercise classes. I tried to control the pain with OTC medications and alternating heat and ice, but it just didn't get better. Chiropractic adjustments have given me back my mobility, reduced and eventually eliminated my pain and I'm able to do my normal activities!"
    Joan Medina
  • "I was in a car accident in 2011 that left me with constant pain in my upper back and neck and it would become very severe at times. I lived day to day not knowing what I would be able to lift or accomplish at work. I did take physical therapy over the years and was prescribed muscle relaxants by my physician, but was open to another form of treatment, as it seemed these other things weren't working. Dr. Dee had restored most of my mobility and the pain is mostly gone!"
    Arnold Rodriquez
  • "I came to Alpine Wellness with a herniated disk in L-4 /L-5. At one point I couldn't even move. I felt like a fish out of water, life was miserable! The orthopedic surgeon recommended surgery and prescribed pain medication when I refused to go through with the surgery. Dr. Dee and chiropractic have helped so much, I never have had the surgery. I can move! The best side effect in my opinion is how strong my immune system has become. I'm a teacher and I never get sick!! My son was diagnosed "failure to thrive" when he was born and has seen Dr. Dee since he was a week old and man have we proved that wrong! He is so happy and healthy and big for his age!"
