Richard Vigorelli, LAc

Acupuncturist and Master Herbalist

Richard Vigorelli was born and raised in Sandy. He graduated from Westminster’s Gore School of Business in 2005 with a Bachelor’s of Science. In 2009 he moved to Los Angeles to begin his study of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at Emperor’s College of Tradition Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica. Currently, Richard lives in the Greater Salt Lake area, and is very active in the community. It is his passion to help people in whatever way he can, and to ease suffering whenever possible.

"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.”

Sharon Begent

Sharon, who is our receptionist here at Holistic Bodyworks, has been semi-retired for 3 years but because of financial needs found it necessary to seek employment. She has 50 plus years in the food service industry, but has never been passionate about it. She wanted to go into employment that held her interest and healed people.

Her daughter, who is an awesome massage therapist, thought that she would like to work at Holistic Bodyworks because she has watched her, from an early age, reading books on energy, body-work, crystals and healing practices since the 80’s. Sharon knows that energy work is essential for the body to do natural healing. Therefore, loves that she found a place that offers those natural ways of healing.

She has personally benefited by bodywork. Massage and acupuncture helped her recover from a car accident where she fractured facial bones and tweaked her alignment. Monthly massages have kept her limber so that she can remain physically active. She has also benefited from chiropractic work. She prefers the gentler manipulations of massage.

Her personal life is a peaceful existence where she practices yoga, Transcendental Meditation, Salsa Dancing (a legend in her living room) and otherwise keeping herself well through eating clean, whole foods and staying hydrated. She reads voraciously, works out at the senior center (even though she doesn’t feel like a senior), crochet hats for homeless shelters and dabble at writing.

She is very excited to join the team at Holistic Bodyworks to try on this new chapter of her life. She looks forward to seeing you and helping you find the therapist who can heal your body and soul.
