We are moving

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that I must leave Utah. As of the end of July I am ending my practice and moving out of state. It has been an honor serving all of you. I wish you all the best. Goodbye.

Meet Richard Vigorelli, LAc

Richard Vigorelli, BS, MTOM, Acu Dipl., LAc was born and raised in Sandy. He graduated from Westminster’s Gore School of Business in 2005 with a Bachelor’s of Science.

"My first experience with acupuncture happened by chance. I had some knee pain that was from an old injury. I had tried everything from drugs to massage and I had accepted that I was going to have surgery some time in my 30’s. I tried acupuncture and after just one treatment I was pain free for the first time in 10 years. Since then I have use acupuncture for nearly every ailment that I have gotten. It is my desire to bring that kind of care to every man, woman, and child that I can. Everyone deserves to live a happy life, and it is my mission to make that a reality.”

Why Acupuncture?

It can help with

Digestion and Weight Loss

Everyone knows that being too big is a serious problem in the United States. Weight loss is also very difficult to do, but if it isn’t done things like diabetes and heart disease can set in. Diabetes can take your foot or even your eyesight. With acupuncture and herbs, diabetes and the struggle with your weight can be under control much more effectively than with diet and exercise alone. Call for more details.

Pain and Injuries

Acupuncture can help fix injuries from falls, car accidents, fights, or even a simple twisted ankle. Acupuncture can help. After the main emergency is over, the largely painless technique can get you back on your feet and on with your life a few weeks faster. Acupuncture can speed up healing of broken bones, tendons, muscles, and even joints. Whether the injury is old or new. Whether it aches, stings, burns or shoots acupuncture can help. Call for more details.

Cold and Cough

While there is a “season” for these sicknesses, they are actually with us all the time. Acupuncture, cupping, and herbal medicine can help you to get over these pesky viruses much more quickly. So, if you’re tired of staying home from work suffering and running to the drug store with your chest hurting while you cough up some nasty stuff, then call in for some help. Acupuncture and herbs can easily take care of a cough or cold or flu. Call for more details.

Men's Health

There are dozens upon dozens of docs out there that help with a woman’s health. But there aren’t as many to help out a man with his problems. So you tried testosterone replacement, that didn’t exactly work. The desire and the ability aren’t always there at the same time. That makes you feel like less of a man doesn’t it? You are no less a man than anyone else. If you want help with issues that only a man can understand then call in for a consultation, maybe acupuncture can help you. Acupuncture is a proven therapy for erectile dysfunction and other men’s health problems. Call for more details.

“Highly recommended. I had tried physical therapy, chiropractic, pain pills and cortisone. Until this experience I have experienced much pain from injuries, was not a surgical candidate and did not like relying in pain medication. My acupuncture experience was exceptional as it has made a more positive impact than any other modality tried. My fear of needles was quickly overcome by the practitioner’s expertise and bedside manner. The questions asked in diagnosing my condition were like none other than what I have experienced.”
