Hello and a warm welcome to the Reed Family Wellness Center (now known as The Wellhouse)! I’m Dr. Glen, one of the owners and chiropractors here. I’d love to take a few minutes to introduce you to our centre and share some key points about our philosophy and approach.

Firstly, family is at the heart of what we do. In fact, we often say, “Family is our middle name.” We aim to care for our patients as if they were our family. Think of those stories of doctors from 150 years ago who were just an extension of the family. They would get out of bed in the middle of the night to check on a sick child, knew everyone’s birthdays, and were always accessible. That’s exactly how we want to treat our patients – with the same care we would extend to our families.

You may have noticed that ‘wellness’ is an integral part of our center’s name. Wellness can be defined in many ways, but our definition focuses on ensuring your body functions optimally. We believe there’s nothing better than enabling patients to function how their bodies are meant to. This is always the first goal of our treatments, whether you’re here for chiropractic services, massage therapy, or nutrition counseling.

But wellness goes a step further. Even if we get your body functioning optimally, if it’s not in a healthy environment, nothing will change. That’s why we always encourage our patients to focus on environmental health as well. Eat well, move well, think well – if we can optimize these aspects of your life, you’ll be amazed at how your health and wellness can transform.

Lastly, we’re an integrated clinic. This means that when you come see a chiropractor, you’re not just examined as a chiropractic patient. Our team has intimate knowledge of each other’s specialties, and we meet regularly to stay educated about each other’s fields. We’ll make sure you get to the right clinician or perhaps a group of practitioners who can cater to your unique needs.

Please feel free to explore our website and get a sense of our relaxed atmosphere. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to stop by our centre at 101-3150 Island Highway North, Nanaimo, BC V9T 1V9. Our friendly staff at the front desk would love to chat with you about any services we offer and how can help you and your family experience better health.

Enjoy browsing through our website and we hope to see you in the centre sometime soon!
