Tyler, what leads you think your soil is alkaline? What are your soil components?

Tyler, most of the meters on the market are grossly inaccurate. The soil you referenced seems adequate. If the tree is growing and healthy I wouldn't be too concerned.

Tyler, A photo would help. On the overall list of things that would make a tree not do well, in normal bonsai soil, ph is way down the list.
