Philosophy and Facilities

Turning Leaf Acupuncture (TLA) was founded by Sharon Bacigalupi, Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist in order to provide patients with comprehensive and individualized health care.  At TLA, each patient is important to us and we take pride in understanding the individual health needs of each patient, and together with each patient discuss and develop treatment plans. 

It is our philosophy that what happens outside the treatment room to improve and maintain one’s health is just as important as what occurs in the office during an acupuncture session thereby encouraging patients to take an active role in their health care. Our goal is to create an office where patients can feel a sense of peace and relaxation, away from outside stresses in order to begin to focus on the improvement of their health and wellness.  

In order to further ensure patients will receive comprehensive health care, Sharon frequently collaborates with western medical providers, massage therapists and reiki practitioners to provide patients with an integrative treatment approach. Turning Leaf Acupuncture is a clinic where patients can take advantage of various healing modalities in order to best achieve and maintain their health care goals.

My first experiences with acupuncture have been with Turning Leaf Acupuncture. Sharon is incredibly thorough and has helped me with things that I didn’t even realize could be helped. As someone who hasn’t been able to sleep through the night in years, I am finally able to do this again and my energy levels reflect it. She is calming, patient and friendly, and her office is meticulously kept yet still warm and inviting. I highly recommend this practice.
