Meet Our Team
Chiropractor John Scott D.C.
Like many new patients, Dr. John Scott, North Calgary chiropractor at Chiropractic Center for Health, used to be skeptical of chiropractic care. It wasn’t until his sister introduced him to a chiropractor, Dr. Greg, that his feelings began to change.
But it wasn’t just Dr. Greg that made a lasting impact. Dr. John noticed that every patient in his office was happy, smiling and relaxed — and most importantly, they seemed quite healthy.
Learning the Chiropractic Craft
Dr. John graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, Ontario, which is where he learned what it meant to help people get better. He saw firsthand just how capable the human body was of healing itself, given the proper care.
In school and after seeing personally the suffering of many friends and family members, Dr. John knew his goal wasn’t just to get people healthy, but to keep them that way naturally.
Providing Life-Changing Care
At Chiropractic Center for Health, we’re aware that patients lead busy lives with hectic schedules, which is why we want to respect your time by conveying information in a meaningful way. Dr. John doesn’t just aim to provide immediate relief, but to ultimately bring a better sense of what optimal living and health truly mean.
He has a particular interest in nutrition, supplementation, fitness, sports injuries, headaches, neck injuries as well as whiplash trauma resulting from auto accidents.
“Helping patients understand why they’re experiencing pain and finding the underlying health issue that they’re facing is the reason I became a chiropractor.
I want people to be able to live their life on their own terms. No limitations. That’s living."
- Dr. John Scott
Staying Active Outside of the Office
When Dr. John isn’t changing lives in the office, he can be found in the net — goaltending, that is! An avid hockey player and fan, Dr. John even holds a winning record against Dr. Ross from college.
Dr. John also practices what he preaches, getting weekly adjustments in the office to maintain his health.
Chiropractor Ross Jeske D.C.
Early Experience With Care
As a collegiate/university hockey player, I was constantly putting my body through rigorous training and physical poundings. Unlike most of my colleagues, who suffered from many ailments like back, neck and knee pain, I was able to enjoy my athletic career relatively pain free. I had always attributed that to my being a chiropractic patient.
That is how I chose chiropractic as a career, I saw the results first hand. Not only did chiropractic care help me play relatively pain free, it also helped me play at my best. You could say that I was inspired to become a Chiropractor solely on the results chiropractic had on me.
"I chose chiropractic as a career because I saw the results first hand. Not only did chiropractic care help me enjoy my athletic career relatively pain free, but it also helped me play at my best."
- Dr. Ross Jeske
After graduating from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Physical Education degree, majoring in athletic therapy, I attended Life Chiropractic College in Atlanta, Georgia. I decided that after living in Alberta, Canada all of my life, if I was going to move somewhere to go to school, it had better be hot, and nothing sounded hotter to me than Hotlanta!!!!!!!
At our office, we understand that every patient is different. Thus, we try our best to communicate with each and every individual; the cause of their problem, what type of care would be best appropriate for their particular condition, as well as lifestyle changes that would benefit not only their condition but improve their overall health and well being. If your condition is not something chiropractic can help, we will refer to where you need to go.
Outside the Office
When I am not at work, my wife and I are actively involved in our children’s activities. That is usually a lot considering we have four very active children. Like the many families that we treat at our office; myself, my wife and our children are also patients at our office.
I enjoy leading an active lifestyle; playing hockey once a week, lifting weights and running as well. I receive chiropractic adjustments every other week to maintain my active lifestyle and as well as prevent me from injuring myself at work or at home.
I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenges.

Chiropractor Aaron D'Amico D.C.
Early Experience With Care
My journey began growing up in a chiropractic family where my father (Dr. Kevin D’Amico) also practiced Chiropractic Care here in Calgary. Being brought up in this type of atmosphere, the health and wellness path caught my eye. When I was a young boy, as boys do, I had several injuries. Lucky enough for me, my dad was there to take care of me during these crazy times. As I grew older and saw the health benefits that chiropractic provided I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. This is how and why I chose to become a chiropractor.
I feel the best way to achieve a healthy lifestyle is to follow a C.R.E.A.D., this means Chiropractic treatment, adequate Rest, regular Exercise, a positive Attitude and a healthy Diet.”

Chiropractor Shaunessy Keita D.C.
Growing up in a big family, I was always around other kids and babies, lots of babies! I didn't know exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I knew it would involve babies. Naturally, this love of babies grew into a love for bellies and all things pregnancy.
I attended the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and completed my Honours Bachelor of Health Science degree, with a specialization in Kinesiology. Learning how the body works, and what it is capable of, was fascinating. That's why, in my 3rd year of University, when a professor was teaching Anatomy, I had to find out how she knew so much about the body, and with such ease and detail. To my surprise, she said she was a chiropractor. I had no idea what a chiropractor was or what they did but I quickly found out! Researching this amazing profession was incredible. This was my first introduction to Chiropractic - at 22 years old - but I knew immediately, this is what I was meant to do. So I booked myself in for my first adjustment to experience first hand, the body's ability to self-heal. The relief I felt was amazing and over the next few days I also noticed improved sleep and digestion.
I knew there was so much more to learn and was eager to start this new adventure at The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto. I encountered a bit of a road block when in my 3rd year of chiropractic school, my husband Mory and I were surprised with the pregnancy of our first daughter, Maliyah. At the same time, we experienced some immigration difficulties and my husband had to leave Canada until his permanent residency was approved - an estimated 2 years. So here we were, married and expecting our first baby, but we were separated by thousands of miles. I was not going to raise our baby alone but I didn't want to give up on becoming a chiropractor. It was during this time, when I experienced how necessary a Mother's Village was. It was incredible how my family, friends, classmates and roommates helped me throughout my pregnancy and for 2 months of Mama-hood. It's something I'll never forget. I also received amazing care from both faculty and students throughout my pregnancy - as chiropractic care was necessary to keep my body in alignment and my nervous system in check (to say I was stressed, was only the tip of the iceberg). It was the best case in an unfortunate scenario.
So after completing my exams, we moved to the Caribbean to be together as a family. We had an amazing time living as locals on the island - Maliyah basically growing up on the beach in her cloth diapers. However, after the year off, Maliyah and I had to return to Canada, without my husband, so I could begin my clinic year at CMCC. This was incredibly difficult but I still wanted to be a Chiropractor. I came back to My Village and once again, they helped me until my husband was approved for his permanent residency a few months later. And just as we thought life was settling down, it got slightly complicated, again. We were surprised with the pregnancy of our second daughter, Rokeiyah, and my due date was 2 weeks after graduation, but I was determined. I graduated from CMCC Cum Laude and with Clinic Honours. It wasn't easy but with the help of My Village and the support of my husband, I did it!
Since graduating, I have been practicing in Calgary, providing care for many families, from babies to grandparents, with a special interest in perinatal and pediatric care. When working with your family, I promise to put my heart and soul into your care - I love what I do and I want to understand your goals in order to meet your needs.

Acupuncturist Kim Dunlop DTCM, LAc
Amazing Healing Modality
Acupuncture has been a part of my life for many years now. As a patient, I was amazed to discover what it was able to do for my body. The acupuncturist I saw was very good about explaining the medicine to me as he treated me. The day he told me that the organs in Chinese Medicine were affiliated with emotions I was hooked! I wanted to learn more about this amazing medicine that was doing so much for my health. And so began my path toward becoming a registered acupuncturist.
I love what I do and feel honoured to be a part of people’s journey toward health and vitality. I treat a number of different health conditions. I’ve successfully treated: insomnia, menopausal symptoms, digestive issues, constipation, menstrual issues, restless legs syndrome, arthritis, flus and colds, anxiety, depression, headaches, migraines, and fatigue.

Amanda Rampersaud - 250 Hour Diploma
I was born in 1983 and raised here in Calgary, Alberta. My mother Canadian and my father from Guyana, South America. All my life I always had a strong interest in body health, nutrition, and beauty. After graduating from high school, it took some time and patience to discover the path to my passions.
Although I have always had a keen interest in body health and well-being, I believe that it was only after a serious motor vehicle accident I had gone through; when I knew I really wanted to become a massage therapist. My head trauma and soft tissue neck injury had become a very painful and extensive healing process, mentally and physically, involving weekly treatments, one of them being massage therapy. I immediately became drawn to the healing world of massage, after witnessing its amazing benefits, and am now dedicated to being a part of that healing process for people. I then went on to pursue obtaining my certification at Calgary’s Professional Institute of Massage Therapy.
I am also a certified professional Makeup Artist, in which I attended school for at Calgary’s Marvel College. I love doing makeup for all events but especially love doing it for weddings and fashion photo shoots. Makeup Artistry is definitely another one of my passions, along with music, and now traveling.
