How it all began

Dr-Jacob-LewisHaving done all three Sciences all the way through High School but with no clear idea of where I was heading, I decided to embark on a Bachelor of Science and just figure it out along the way.

As the years passed, I methodically worked my way through a wide range of interesting subjects. A Bachelor of Science turned into a Bachelor of Arts, then morphed into a Bachelor of Commerce, before finally transmogrifying back into a Bachelor of Science. And along the way I came to be an expert in knowing exactly what it was that I didn’t want to do, but not at all certain as to where exactly my future lay.

Then one day, a friend invited me to attend a Careers Fair, where I bumped into the recruitment officer for the NZ College of Chiropractic and had one of those rare life-changing moments of inspiration! Learning about the human body, helping other people thrive, having a sense of purpose and fulfilment each day I’d go to work…it sounded amazing! I went home and immediately told my parents I was moving to Auckland to study Chiropractic.

Chiropractic Education

The NZ College of Chiropractic was a tough but immensely rewarding experience. Years of continuous study and rigorous exams. But studying in an environment of excellence, surrounded by like-minded committed students and some of the finest Chiropractors in New Zealand kept motivation high. I also began to experience first hand the magic of a Chiropractic adjustment, not only in my own life with the aches and pains I had, but also in how other people’s lives were transformed. I grew to love the potential for good Chiropractic has in people’s lives.

After completing my studies I moved to Wellington, where I worked for two years as part of a thriving practice and was mentored by a well-respected Chiropractor. I worked with young and old, pregnant mums and new-born babies, unfit dads and international athletes. During that time I also completed further courses in Inspiral – which focuses on pregnancy, babies and children – and a technique called Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) – which balances the spine from bottom to top, allowing healthy cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow round the body. I learned a huge amount from this time and developed enormously both in mental perspective and technical ability.
