Meet The Team

Brianna Armignacco

office manager

I was born and raised in Rochester, NY. For a few short years I lived in Buffalo, NY, where I attended Canisius College and received my Bachelors’ Degree in Communication Studies. I fell in love with learning about how to relate to people.

In November of 2018, I had my son, Sami, and it changed my world completely. I fell in love with learning as much information about pregnancy, babies, and breastfeeding as I possibly could. I feel like I can truly fulfill my mission here at Tree of Life Chiropractic: to be able to truly help families feel healthy, educated, and connected in the community.

I grew up in a small town outside of Rochester and I always knew that I wanted this city to be my forever home. My love for Rochester grew as I realized how many big hearts and hard workers make up the small business culture in our city. 


I was an only child so I didn’t have any “built-in friends” that many of my peers had and because of this I have always had a passion for cultivating new relationships. I am endlessly curious and trying to learn more about the people around me, their passions and the driving force in their lives. In my studies I became fascinated by sustainability - for my physical and mental wellbeing as well as others.


I sought out care at Tree of Life Chiropractic when I was pregnant with my daughter Peyton and since my first visit the whole team treated me like family. I feel very blessed to work here and look forward to meeting you and your family!

Up until I was pregnant with my fourth child, I have never stepped foot into a chiropractor’s office, let alone, ever thought I needed one. My six-year-old was experiencing severe digestive issues and after trying all the recommendations with little to no resolve, I stumbled upon Tree of Life Chiropractic and decided to give them a try. Results were pretty much immediate and when I no longer saw my daughter in pain, it was then that I knew this was the missing piece to the puzzle.

Not too long after, I took the plunge and decided to get myself under care, in my last few months, of my pregnancy. Ultimately, this was when my life completely changed. I was relieved of my sciatica, which was something that I experienced throughout my previous pregnancies. I felt happier and energized postpartum. Chiropractic gave me a newfound freedom that I didn’t have before and the more I learned, the more I wanted to share with others.


I love meeting our Tree of Life fam, listening to them, and getting to encourage them through their wellness journey. As mentioned before, I have 4 kiddos and they get adjusted twice a week, as well as my husband. You may get the pleasure of meeting them (they are very hard to miss lol)! I couldn’t imagine my family’s life without chiropractic; thriving, happy, and healthy. I can attest that this is the best addition to our wellness regimen and my goal is to empower families to do and feel the same.
