Amanda Barone, B.Sc., R.Ac.




Amanda Barone is a registered acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner’s and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO). Growing up as a competitive figure skater lead her to have a constant fascination with the human body and how it functions. For this reason, she followed her passion and enrolled in the Kinesiology and Health Sciences program at York University. Upon graduation, she continued her studies at the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine and graduated with a Diploma in Acupuncture. It was here that she learned to see the intricate relationship between a person’s physical, emotional and spiritual health and the impact this has on one’s overall health and wellness.

Through a thorough assessment Amanda is able to identify organ dysfunctions in her patients that may be contributing to disease and pain. Using Acupuncture, exercise and lifestyle recommendations Amanda works with her patients to help them achieve their health goals. She believes in creating great patient-practitioner relationships and focuses a lot of attention on patient education.

Amanda is also a Registered Kinesiologist with the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario (CKO) and incorporates stretching and strengthening exercises into her treatment plans. She is certified in Acudetox through the National Acupuncture Detox Association (NADA) and helps her patients to overcome addictions such as smoking by using this protocol. Amanda is also trained in Medical Acupuncture after completing the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture course at McMaster University. She incorporates a unique combination of both Eastern and Western styles of Acupuncture into her treatments.

Amanda has a special interest in treating infertility, insomnia and digestive disorders.
