Sharón Bacigalupi, L.AC, MAOM, FABORM, FOUNDER

Sharón Bacigalupi is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist and founder of Turning Leaf Acupuncture. Sharón’s education has taken her on a journey which has truly made her the well-rounded practitioner that she is today. Her education began with a Bachelors Degree in Biology and she followed that with a Master’s Degree in Public Health with a focus on Health Education, as she believes that education is the core to understanding and sustaining health and wellness.

Sharón chose to pursue a 2nd Master’s Degree in Chinese Medicine because she wanted to provide direct patient care in addition to health education for her patients. She appreciated Chinese Medicine for its philosophy, longevity as a medicine of over 4000 years and its focus on the entire person, not only parts of person, which she feels is the key to truly achieving and maintaining health and wellness. Sharón went on to complete her Master’s Degree in Chinese Medicine and continues grow as a practitioner by taking courses, attending symposiums and aligning herself with a community like minded integrative practitioners.

She specializes in women’s health and reproductive medicine and is proud to be one of only a few practitioners in Massachusetts that is a board certified Fellow of the Acupuncture Board or Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) and a member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine. Sharón works collaboratively with top IVF clinics in Massachusetts – understanding that reproductive medicine is more than the treatment of physical symptoms and a western diagnosis, it is also about addressing emotional well-being which is equally important for reproductive health.

As a patient at Turning Leaf Acupuncture, Sharón will discuss with you your health history and health concerns, review prior test results and treatments, collaborate with any of your current health care providers should you choose and then develop an individualized treatment plan that will help you achieve your health goals. This is truly a team effort and where her understanding of fertility treatment approaches and background in Chinese Medicine, health education and functional nutrition combine and allow her to provide you with the best care. Sharón’s expertise goes beyond reproductive medicine and she has a special interest in digestive concerns, anxiety/depression, stress reduction, endocrine imbalances and pain management.

In her spare time, Sharón enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, being with friends, traveling, enjoying delicious food and having time to relax and unwind to a great movie.
