Introduction to Hillcrest Community Acupuncture

Welcome to Hillcrest Community Acupuncture’s blog. In this blog I hope to inspire, inform and educate you about the many benefits acupuncture can provide. I am passionate about helping people heal without medicine or invasive surgery, and know that there are many illnesses that can be not only treated but can possibly be prevented by a combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

Who am I? My name is Sacha Landreneau and I have been an acupuncturist for almost 12 years. I studied acupuncture at New York College of Health Professions in New York and Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego. I was in private practice for many years and fell in love with the community acupuncture model because I saw it as a way to make acupuncture affordable. At Hillcrest Community Acupuncture we provide professional treatments while taking advantage of a group healing space. This also allows a space where family and friends can come in for treatments at the same time.

Acupuncture is such an amazing medicine and I look forward to educating more people about its many benefits.


  1. Hi Sacha! Glad to see that you succeeded in opening a community clinic in Hillcrest. You always dream big and do the work, too! So not at all surprised.

    I was wondering if you might have time to write a prof. reference on my behalf ? It is for the Rhode Island acupuncture board. They require two of these. It has to come from an acupuncturist who you have known for some years.

    I’ve been practicing in a small town area in WI starting my fifth year, and really haven’t become acquainted with many ‘peers’ esp. community acu folks out here. I do have one other friend in comm. acu. who ran a community clinic for years way out in the sticks.

    If you’d have the time to write something I can send you a pre-stamped envelope with the form included for them ready to go. If not, I understand.

    Congratulations again. S.
