About Us

Welcoming You To The Centre!

A Working Philosophy.

More than just a business.

Drs. Glen and Jessica Reed opened the Reed Family Wellness Centre in January 2005 with the aim to bring optimal health to Nanaimo families.  Both Dr. Glen and Dr. Jessica grew up in  chiropractic families and have known the benefits of chiropractic care from a very young age.  In addition to chiropractic care, they envisioned that many integrated therapies could come together under one roof to better serve their patients. Over the years, their team has grown to include Registered Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, Registered Counselling, Doula Services, Holistic Nutrition and Naturopathic Medicine. It is through careful work with each and every patient that all practitioners at Reed Family Wellness refer to each other for the patient’s optimal health.

The Family Focused Wellness Centre

From Babies to Baby Boomers.

Our holistic philosophy, in which we treat the patient as a whole being and not just their symptoms, applies to each family member. At the Reed Family Centre, we treat infants who are just days old, children, tweens, teens, pregnant women, as well as those lucky retirees (and that is not all!).

In order for one family member to become as healthy as can be, it is best to have family support as well.  Family members and close friends are invited to be part of the healing process from Day One. Key members to a patient’s healing are invited to attend the Chiropractic Report of Findings and are also invited to our Special Report, which outlines why we practice the way we do. Children are always welcome at Reed Family Wellness Centre, and we have a lovely play area to keep children busy. In addition, we have a family plan if multiple family members are under chiropractic care at once. At Reed Family Wellness we follow through on our family name!

Newly Expanded Centre For Greater Comfort.

Your comfort is of utmost importance to us.

After eleven years at our Bowen Road location, we were very proud to open our new doors at the corner of Norwell and the Island Highway. Six months of painstaking renovation resulted in a Wellness Centre that we are proud to work in every day.  Our reception area is light and bright, with lovely wood features and even a warm fireplace. The kids’ area is sure to please, tucked away so kids can feel that they have a room of their own.  The chiropractic rooms are roomy and look out on a garden lined with cedars. On the massage, acupuncture and Craniosacral side, the rooms are airy, bright and quiet. Upstairs you will find The Wellspring Yoga Studio where you are welcome to find your zen at their many classes.  You are welcome to come visit to see the extensive changes to the former “Lenhart Building”!
