Acupuncturist Bios

Whitney Thorniley, L.Ac. (she/her)

After living in the Bay Area for nearly 18 years (though I will always consider West Virginia home), I am excited to now be part of the Sacramento community!   Many years working in the grueling yet rewarding food service industry created the aches and pains that initially led me to acupuncture. The results were amazing. My own powerful experiences as a patient coupled with my typical curiosity made it clear that I needed to study acupuncture. With school completed, I worried about what my practice would look like and whether I would actually make it as an acupuncturist. I was thrilled and relieved to learn about Community Acupuncture, and I have never practiced professionally any other way! In 2008, I co-founded Oakland Acupuncture Project, which now has 2 locations in Oakland, with Sacramento Acupuncture Project being our third and newest clinic location.  When not in the clinic I read and hike and laugh and spend time with my two wild and amazing boys. I work Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
