Dr Amber Lynch
I come from a line of woman who were always interested in natural remedies. My nana was an avid gardener and could name every single herb in a garden. My mum has always been interested in natural health and she thought outside the box when it came to our health. At a young age, she introduced us to chiropractic care and applied kinesiology. If I had a cold, I would seek treatment from natural medicine and AK. At around the age of 20 my mum, again wanting the best for me, encouraged me to do some personal work on myself in the form of psychotherapy. Psychotherapy has given me the opportunity to understand the power of my mind and emotions and how the development of certain beliefs could hold me back.
I started my career in nursing which I loved. This gave me the freedom to travel the world, work in multiple different specialities and have a great understanding of when and where medicine is truly needed. However, I knew that there was something more for me that aligned more with my values. After much soul searching, at the age of 31, I decided to return to complete a five-year degree in Chiropractic. During this time I achieved certification in applied kinesiology.
I am fascinated by the human body and how it works on a holistic level. For me, it is a privilege to be a part of peoples stories and to contribute to allowing them to lead a healthier life, gain a better understanding of themselves and to have a positive impact on their wellbeing.
I worked as a registered nurse for 11 years in Melbourne, London and New Zealand before becoming a qualified chiropractor. In this time I worked in many different specialities, including.
- Head injury rehabilitation
- Intensive care
- Day surgery recovery
I am very grateful for the time I spent as a nurse. It made me realise how much I appreciate caring for and being a part of peoples lives. It gave me great knowledge into what we can do as humans to support wellness before we get to a state of dis-ease and when to refer patients.
In 2011 I graduated with a Degree of Chiropractic during which time I also became certified in applied kinesiology. For the past eight years, I have been working as an associate chiropractor in Christchurch through to the conception of Centered Health in 2019. Over the past two years, I have been eagerly learning new techniques and tools which I am now bringing into my treatments.
I live in Christchurch with my husband Richard and my dog Coco. In my spare time, I love to run, walk around beautiful Hagley Park, learn about and indulge in natural skincare products, listen to inspiring podcasts, read, practice yoga, spend time with family and friends, travel and experience new cultures, eat yummy food, meditate and go to the movies.
I am a seeker of knowledge, whether that is through reading, podcasts or attending seminars, I hope to be a student for life.
