Chiropractor in Christchurch | Dr. Jim Miller

A car accident in my teenage years put me on the path to chiropractic.

Before the accident I was a great student, physically fit and enjoyed a normal healthy life. But after the accident, I suffered severe headaches, neck and back pain. I was very sleepy most of the time and found it difficult to concentrate. After a few months of these frustrating symptoms with no relief from conventional therapy, my mother took me to my first chiropractor. I was lucky that I had such a fantastic mother to introduce me to chiropractic and it was to be a turning point in my health and in my life.

My concentration returned and I gained almost complete relief from my pain within the first few weeks of treatment. I had a new found energy and life got increasingly better as treatment progressed. Unfortunately the insurance discontinued their payments and my mother was forced to cease my chiropractic treatment. Gradually, my headaches and aches came back…read more »

A lifelong ambition

From a young age I always knew I wanted to have a job in the health field but never once thought about becoming a chiropractor. A love of science and a lot of personal experience with the medical profession made me want to be a doctor. As a child there was rarely a whole week where I wouldn’t be away from school sick and on antibiotics. I suffered from chronic tonsillitis and ear infections, asthma and migraines and caught every single bug that was going around. I just thought some people are more prone to things than others and that was just the way I was but I still considered myself healthy

Once I finished high school I went to Otago university planning to go on to study medicine. The only thing I had ever wanted to do. It was halfway through my first year that I stumbled upon a stall for the New Zealand College of Chiropractic  . . . read more »

Growing up, I was a competitive swimmer and waterpolo player. Training 12+ times a week, I was burnt out and started getting sports niggles. I was dragged along to a Chiropractor by my mother at age 16 and I haven’t looked back since!

A chiropractor works with the nervous systems ability to control and co-ordinate every single function in the body. When that is not working properly you can not be performing at 100%. As a sports person, that rang true to me. Once under care, I started noticing my recovery time improved, I had more energy and had less and less sports injuries.

Having a passion for helping people and seeing how chiropractic can change people’s lives, I decided to study Chiropractic at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic.

Longevity, Health and Happiness

Some of the values the Chinese and in fact I think we all hold close to our hearts are Longevity, Health and Happiness. Through learning and implementing into my own, my family and the lives of my clients the knowledge about balance in diet and lifestyle, every day I see the benefits we all have from this Traditional Holistic Medicine.

My Path To Holistic Healing

Prior to training in Traditional Chinese Medicine I was a Chef and Baker. After realising I wanted something more, I looked into a few modalaties, psych, ayurvedic medicine, a friend gave me a letter to an open day at the Ch Ch College of Holistic Healing. I had no idea what to expect and was completely grabbed by it… I had to know more. I flew into it completely blind and had not had any experience of it at all. It felt right…read more »

the possibility, led me on a journey of exploring how to achieve this.

Naturally curious about getting the best from others and myself I was drawn to the field of Neuro Linguistic programming (NLP).

Neuro= The Mind and how we think

Linguistic = How we use language and how it affects us

Programming = How we automatically sequence our actions

NLP basically is the study of excellence, the strategies people utilise to excel, whether that is for relaxing, success, career, family or recreation etc. Through eliciting strategies of excellence, these can be replicated so that others may, adopt them for their own benefit…read more »
