More about Dr. Miller
My favourite part of my job is that it feels like I treat friends all day long. I love to hear about your families, workout routines, new challenges you are facing at work, trips you are planning, and activities you are participating in. I enjoy treating patients of all ages, and hearing the giggles of children after getting adjusted, working with a pregnant mom and then meeting her new baby, and listening to the stories of my “snow birds” who have returned from a winter of golfing down South.
Knowing how important chiropractic care is to my health, I continue to be adjusted every week, so I can continue to play competitive water polo, keep up with my very active dog (Wattson, an Airedale), golf, learn how to play hockey, take time out to relax and enjoy my husband’s company, and function at my best.
When I’m not at the office or the pool, I volunteer with Rotary International, working directly with international youth exchange students, helping them learn our Canadian culture, and appreciate all that Canada has to offer. For those patients who speak French, I am also bilingual, and would really appreciate being able to practice my French, so please challenge me to do so!

More about Dr. Li
Growing up in a Chinese family, I have always been exposed to alternative therapy and have noticed that the body responds very well with fewer side effects. I was first introduced to chiropractic when my mom was suffering from severe back pain. Not only did chiropractic treatment helped relieve her complaint, her chronic headaches were also resolved. She no longer carries pain medication in her purse, which she had been doing for years.
During my internship, I volunteered for the CMCC Chiropractic Outreach Abroad to the Dominican Republic to provide chiropractic care to the less privileged. This experience has influenced my perception on how effective and beneficial manual therapy can be in treating a variety of different conditions.
Outside of professional practice, I enjoy baking, playing ball hockey, badminton, and swimming. Chiropractic care has been a very important part of my health in maintaining an active lifestyle. I look forward to working with you and your family to achieve optimal function and health.
I recently moved here from Newfoundland, where I was practicing as a Manual Osteopath. I obtained a B.A along with a Medical Degree (MD), that allowed me the opportunity to travel worldwide to complete my clinical rotations. This exposed me a variety of challenging health care conditions and geographically unique experiences. Wellness and health care modalities have comprised the past 11 years of my education, including becoming a Manual Osteopathic Practitioner!

Holistic Health Coach
I could spend this short time we have together waxing on about my experience as a Holistic Health Coach, or how I’ve never been happier or prouder of the work I do, or even how I wish everyone got the chance to study at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Ongoing study and education is really important to me, focused on how best to restore gut health (ground zero for the health of your body!). Nutrition Advisor training received at the Sanoviv Medical Institute (AMAZING!) And indeed, those are all great stories, but perhaps for another time. Over a green juice, my treat.
More about Jodie
I started this whole, wild ride because I was just searching for ways to improve and protect my family’s health (something I’m sure everyone can relate to). Before I knew it I was elbow deep, sifting through media fear mongering, false advertising, fad diets, and a nauseating amount of just plain stupid advice.
What I needed more than anything was someone to shoot it to me straight, someone to actually help!
And so instead of looking for her, I become her.
I couldn’t have known then how much of a health nerd I would turn into, how amazing I would find the design of the human body for optimal health, or how obsessed I would become in helping others build lifestyles (and legacies) that make them truly happy and healthy.
So that’s me!
You can expect me to be consistent in sharing useful and simple information. You can count on my excitement and dedication in motivating you in exactly the ways you need. You can trust that I am results oriented, and strategic towards giving you a life of freedom (and fun!). When I’m not totally geeking out on gut health topics, you can find me camping in the Rocky Mountains with my husband of 21 years and our two fantastic kids.
