Originally from BC, I attended University of Victoria for my undergraduate studies, and then continued on to Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2007, and was a member of the Sports Chiropractic Team.

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!

Chiropractor

I was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Canada most of my life.

In addition, I am certified in Clinical Acupuncture, Thompson Technique and Graston Techinque®.

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.

Gail Llewellyn

Gail Llewellyn

Registered Massage Therapist, Reflexology/Reiki

Hello, my name is Gail Llewellyn, and I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. My family moved to Airdrie in 1980, and I have spent the last 9 years working at Central Health and Wellness. I’m looking forward to meeting, and serving you and your families in the future.

More about Gail

I became very interested in energy work in the late 1990’s, particularly Reiki. I studied, and learned about this modality until I received my Master Level in Dec 2001 in the Usui lineage of Natural Healing.

This encouraged me to try my hands at some Feet! I was always fascinated with feet, and became a certified Reflexologist with the Reflexology Assoc of Canada in April 2002.

Massage therapy seemed to be the next natural progression in my journey. I studied at the University of Calgary, and graduated in April 2003. Massage has branched out into relaxation, therapeutic, pre/post natal, and for the last two years I have incorporated “Jade Stones” into my work.

Samantha Taylor

Samantha Taylor

Registered Massage Therapist

Calgary has always been home for me and being active has been an important part of my life since I was a kid. Whether I was on the street throwing the football with my dad, going to the park to play soccer with friends, or snowboarding in the winter, I was always on the go.

I look forward to working with you and your family in helping the body help itself!

More about Samantha

At a young age, I found a love for volleyball and found myself playing on my schools team all through Junior High and High School. Along with basketball, wrestling, field hockey and rugby for a couple years here and there, I found myself very aware of what “sore muscles” felt like. In High School I became very interested in the human body, how it functioned and finding ways to help myself perform better as an athlete. When you play sports every day it’s hard to find down time for your muscles to recover, so I turned to massage to relieve the muscle tension.

 

After graduation I attended Mount Royal University and completed the 1100 hour massage therapy program and in 2010 became a registered massage therapist. I am very passionate about my work and enjoy working along side athletes needing deep tissue therapy and people suffering from the typical “desk job” pains that those uncomfortable chairs and long days with altered posture cause.
