A Calgarian by birth, Dr. Amanda Perizzolo is a licensed doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, a registered acupuncturist, and is certified in sports medicine acupuncture, Acutonics® and personal training.
Amanda is currently one of nine practitioners in Canada who has a Sports Medicine Acupuncture (SMAC) certification.
She uses postural assessments, gait analysis, orthopedic testing and functional muscle tests in her practice. This gives a more thorough diagnosis and helps to determine a better treatment plan which can help decrease recovery time, prevent future injury and enhance athletic performance.
Athletic throughout her youth as a competitive gymnast, her interest in health and fitness evolved into a passion to help others achieve a healthy lifestyle, holistically. Towards that end, Amanda earned a B.A. in psychology from Athabasca University, and her doctorate of traditional Chinese medicine shortly thereafter.
