Encinitas Acupuncture and Personal Training
BIOGRAPHY Philip Gallo started his career in fitness and health at a very young age. As a competitive athlete throughout most of his life, he competed in such sports as Soccer, Football, Surfing and Cycling. Growing up in the small beach town Cardiff by-the-sea in North San Diego County, surfing for Phil is still one of many pastimes. Receiving honors for his scholastic achievements and athleticism, Philip was an outstanding student athlete in both individual and team sports. He has reached collegiate status in football and semi-professional levels in soccer, and continues to strive for excellence as an athletic performance enthusiast.
Mr. Gallo finished his undergraduate degree in the Health Sciences over fifteen years ago and continued his career as a Certified Personal Trainer, with more than 16 years of experience. In addition Phil has furthered his education by completing his Masters Degree and medical internship in Oriental Medicine, from Emperors’ College in Los Angeles, Ca, finished his medical externship at the UCLA East-West medical clinic and logged over 12,000 hours of clinical and practical experience. He is certified by the Council of Colleges of Oriental Medicine, and is currently an Acupuncture Orthopedic candidate at The Center for Health and Healing in Beverly Hills California.
As the Founding Principle of Phil’s Acu-Fit in 2003, he practices a full scope of general Acupuncture for headaches, stress, insomnia, arthritis, common cold, sports and fitness therapeutics. Including musculoskeletal conditions, sports injuries, ligament sprains/strains joint pain, instability/ mobility back pain and muscle stiffness.
Philip presents himself as a unique practitioner, by combining his rare expertise in Western and Eastern Science, his respected communicative skills, down to earth demeanor and application of techniques.
Phil is an exceptional trainer and rehabilitation coach. I’ve referred many patients to him who suffer with severe Spinal Stenosis and Disc Herniations. Thanks Phil–you are definitely deserving of our trust and appreciation. His training for these along with many other conditions has my full confidence. I highly recommend him.

“After lower back surgery, I had given up on ever working out again. That was before I started Acupuncture and training with Phil! His awareness, wealth of knowledge in medical health and fitness expertise has produced a true miracle, where all other trainers and training methods had fallen short. As a public speaker and motivator myself, he literally has gotten me back on my feet. ”
“Thank you again for being such a great person and trainer! Your work goes beyond what the traditional trainers do. In addition to working on the physical aspects, you provide modalities that address mental performance and awareness. After several sessions, I have begun to notice that there is a heightened sense of ‘positive’ awareness around me. The one hour is the best spent hour of my week!”
—Joy K. Sakata

“Mr. Gallo has proven to be not only extremely knowledgeable in the various structures of the body, nutrition and natural healing aids, but also he is an incredible motivator. He demonstrates an aptitude in directing my care toward the attainment of my goals. All sessions with Mr. Gallo are done with conscious regard to the nature and purpose of my health and well-being.”

“After two failed back surgeries I utilized Phil Gallo’s training services and Alternative Medicine practices for the past eighteen months and can honestly state I have found a vast improvement in my flexibility and general well-being. Additionally, Phil is always aware of my limitations and seems to know exactly how much to push me so as to attain maximum benefits. I have absolutely no reservations as to recommending Phil.”
