I am a Classical Five-Element Acupuncturist practicing body, mind, spirit acupuncture in Broomfield, CO. I believe that to truly heal the body or mind of a pain or ailment it must also be addressed on an emotional and spiritual level as well. I became an acupuncturist after it changed my life. In 2004 I separated from the military. The VA was wanting to do hip surgery on me due to risk of necrosis caused by the subluxation of my femur. I was only 26 and told them I was choosing to seek alternative options. One of these options was a man I worked with at the university hospital. Along with my hip I had also been dealing with PTSD, migraines, depression, shoulders pain, neuropathy and degenerative disk disease. I only told the acupuncturist about the hip but it helped all of my conditions tremendously and within months. I asked him how this was possible. He explained that in healing the emotional and spiritual aspect of the bod as well as the physical you can heal almost anything from the inside out. This experience with acupuncture led to me choosing the one school in the US that taught the same style of acupuncture I had just received. During the course of acupncture school certain events led me to the door of another healer, Leanne Holitza. Leanne is a psychic and intuitive healer. Leanne taught me how to see additional subtle energies and how to move them. She helped me see how these energies related to different acupuncture conditions and showed me a deeper level of healing than what I was already learning in school. These educations have shaped the way I facilitate healing. I believe that when we interact with other people and the world around us we take on energy that is not our own. I work to clear people of energy that does not resonate with them and reinforce from the center to help push imbalance out. I utilize a number of styles of acupuncture depending on what an individual resonates with. I don't actively treat symptoms and I don't believe that acupuncture or energy work is one size fits all. Every treatment is tailored to your individual needs, meeting you where you are at in you journey. I am a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Colorado, a Diplomate of Acupuncture and hold a Masters in Classical Five-Element Acupuncture. As well as being an alternative medicine provider, I currently work in the hospital pharmacy setting. Prior to this I served a Hospital Corpsman where I received military education and experience in primary care, nursing and EMS.

Why It Matters: Amanda Selvarajah's Board Certifications
Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
