Helping You and Your Family At Every Stage of Life

We specialize in helping families attain their optimal well-being. Welcome to your family chiropractic centre—serving Vancouver Island residents for over 18 years.


We offer chiropractic care and integrated therapies for everyone—from babies to baby boomers.

Holistic Approach

We believe in treating patients holistically, considering more than just their symptoms.

Comfortable clinic

Our clinic is cozy, with a caring reception team, a designated kid’s area, and quiet, spacious treatment rooms.

Experienced Team

The clinic’s founders, doctors & practitioners have a long history of promoting optimal health for Nanaimo families.

At The Wellhouse, we have a story deeply rooted in passion and care for others.

Our founders, Drs. Glen and Jessica Reed, saw the life-changing effects of chiropractic care early on, witnessing its positive impact in their friends and family’s clinics growing up.

That passion and experience inspired them to open the Reed Family Wellness Centre in 2005, with a philosophy that focuses on proper body function and a nurturing environment for the whole family. As the practice grew, they wanted to do more to support their community’s health.

Their vision was to create a wellness centre where various integrated therapies would come together under one roof. In January 2016, they brought this vision fully to life as The Wellhouse, a full-featured clinic located at the corner of Norwell Road and the Island Highway.

Meet Drs. Reed

Dr. Jessica and Dr. Glen Reed are a married couple who run The Wellhouse in Nanaimo, offering chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture, and naturopathic services. Dr. Glen saw the life-changing effects growing up in his family’s clinic & Dr. Jessica was inspired to become a chiropractor at age 12 when she visited her father’s best friend’s office. The couple later met in the anatomy lab during chiropractic college and eventually decided to open their own practice together (after falling in love, of course!). They believe in the importance of movement and exercise for overall health and well-being and aim to create a hub for healthy families in their community.

How Chiropractic Works

Holistic Approach to Pain Relief

Chiropractic utilizes manual techniques to assess, diagnose, treat, and prevent conditions related to the neurological, muscular, and skeletal systems without the use of medication.

We understand how excruciating the discomfort from neck or back pain, neck pain, sciatica, sports injuries, and overuse injuries can be, and we have extensive experience to help you.

Our goal is to provide comprehensive care that not only alleviates your pain but also educates you on its underlying causes and how to prevent it in the future.

See How We Can Help With Your Concerns

Many of the conditions we treat stem from long-term stressors such as poor workplace postures, aberrant movement, poor nutrition, or mental/emotional stress. Our team aims to provide you with the tools and education to manage these stressors healthily so that your body can function optimally and maintain a pain-free state.
