Amanda Materno RMT, R.Ac - Founder
Intrigued and inspired by the body and holistic medicine, through her own experiences she fell in love with the aspect of health and wellness, to share her passion and education with others.
Amanda's belief is that if we treat our bodies well and give the proper support to thrive in its own habitat; in return the body will treat us well.
The body has an astonishing ability to heal, adapt and compensate when faced with illness, dysfunction or injury.
Her passion is to positively impact others lives with all modalities of medicine that she provides.
Always continuing her education, she has gained certification in, Cupping (2014), and Cosmetic Acupuncture (2021); as well as her Diploma of Acupuncture in 2021. She has since passed her Pan-Canadian Examination; has become a Registered Acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario!
Amanda's style of work is to help adapt the individual's need for each appointment as they come in, with all of her modalities to give the patient the best care and optimize their recovery.
Amanda has been registered with the College of Massage Therapists for over 10 years. Although she will continue to treat her current Massage Therapy patients, moving forward she will only be accepting new patients for Acupuncture!
Amanda loves sharing her expertise enthusiastically, as she follows her passions!
Registered Traditional Chinese Acupuncture + Online Booking:
Acupuncture helps by stimulating the CNS (central nervous system) to release endorphins (body's natural pain killer) as well as serotonin (chemical in the brain involved with mood). Its aim is to boost the body's own ability to heal via the points selected by your practitioner in each treatment.
At East West we take the time to get to know you, in the Assessment + Treatment Appt. As a part of coming up with your specific treatment plan, as the practitioner we are looking at your symptoms and medical history, to create a diagnosis and goal for future appts, to get you to where you want to be.
Each appt, should help you forward with lifestyle and nutritional guidance.
