Wellness Model

Health For The Entire You.

Wellness Model.

Looking at the big, long-term, picture.

A topic that most people like to avoid, and that the chiropractors and holistic nutritionists at Reed Family Wellness are keen to point out, is that nutrition is the easiest area for many of us to start making little changes back to a healthier lifestyle.  With current overweight and obesity rates reaching more than 20%, Type II diabetes increasing in its prevelance by 72% over the past 10 years, and over 1.6 million Canadians currently living with heart disease, we can’t think of a more important topic to cover with our patients.  

Improvements in nutrition can affect all areas of your life from increased focus at work, to increased energy for your family, or the addition of healthy and active years to your life.  If you’re ready to improve your health and wellness, we’re here to help.

Monthly open nutrition courses led by our chiropractic team are free to current patients of Reed Family Wellness Centre and open for drop in with a donation to the local food bank.

One-on-one sessions with our holistic nutritionist are also available for those looking to make significant improvements to their nutritional health.

Eat Well.

Fuel the machine.

Move Well.

Feel your best.

You need to move! Your ability to move is as important as drinking and breathing. In your earliest years you first learned to move by rolling, crawling, climbing, walking, and running.  And remember how easy it was.  Picture a child who is completely comfortable in a full squatting position – so comfortable, so easy, so perfect!  This is how our bodies are meant to move, effortlessly and without thought or constraint.

Most of us start to loose this optimal movement during the school years, when we begin to spend our days sitting to learn, sitting to watch TV, and sitting to travel. This sitting habit is later fully developed for most of us in the workplace environment.

Can we get back to the movement of our childhood years? Absolutely!

And is it worth the time and energy?  Well, you can decide that.  Here is a list of a few benefits you will notice after increasing your movement health:

  • Less pain during normal daily movements such as getting out of bed or putting on your socks.
  • Less chance of injury during your normal daily activities
  • Increased energy throughout your daily activities
  • Reduced body fat
  • Reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and cancer
  • Increased attention and focus at work
  • Ability to keep up with your children (well, almost keep up with your children)

To help you start adding movement back into your daily routine Reed Family Wellness Centre has many options.  You will find a variety of yoga and personal training classes through the Wellspring studio, or you can sit down with one of our personal trainers for one-to-one coaching or training sessions.  Whatever you choose, the goal is simple – get out there and move!

Think Well.

Young at heart, body and soul.

Just as staying physically active is important for healthy bones, muscles, and organs such as our heart, mental health allows us to enjoy our life, environment, and the people within it.  We are more likely to be learn and grow, be creative, and take risks.  We are better able to cope with stressors that will arise in our professional and personal lives.  We feel deeper emotions and are more able to express them, leading to improved and more rewarding relationships with our loved ones.

With all of these benefits we feel it is worth just as much time focusing on our mental health as it is on our physical health.

At the Reed Family Wellness Centre there are many options for improving your overall mental fitness.

The Wellspring offers various yoga classes incorporating meditation, postures, and breath work to help achieve mindfulness in your busy day.

Craniosacral Therapy and Acupuncture treatments offer our patients assistance in calming the internal environment physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Registered Clinical Counsellors also provide focused work on a one-to-one basis or with the family unit to provide skills and strategies for more optimal mental wellness.
