Dr. Vince Hassel
While growing up, my best friend’s dad was a chiropractor. I had exposure to chiropractic just a few times from him with injuries from various sports. In high school I had more care with injuries with wrestling and football.
Always, I was amazed with how chiropractic could help me get back to participation fast and help keep me there through the injuries that came with each season. Once I got to Palmer College and learned the true philosophy and the true health benefits of chiropractic care, I knew I had made the right choice.
I did my undergraduate studies at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. After that, I pursued chiropractic studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Since graduating, I have completed over 400 hours in post-graduate studies in the Gonstead system.
I have four girls who keep us busy with everything from gymnastics and dance to cheer leading! My own hobbies include golf, water skiing, hunting, snowmobiling, exercising, and anything else I can do outdoors.
I get adjusted once a week. I exercise five days a week in the gym and I spend weekends doing family activities for exercising. Everyday, I eat six meals and drink a gallon of water. My family eats as many organic and healthy “real” food as possible. None of our kids have been vaccinated; none of them have ever taken any antibiotics. And, as busy as they are in activities, they display a good level of health. IN addition, all of my kids have been checked for subluxations and been adjusted since the day they were born!
Enough about me! I hope I get an opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge. I am confident that I can help you with today’s safe and natural chiropractic care. Give our office a call so we can help you take your first step towards better health.

Dr. Lacey Gillies
I grew up in Atikokan, a small secluded town in NW Ontario Canada. I completed my BSc Degree at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia, and moved to Des Moines after completing my Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington MN. My desire to contribute to a health care team that promotes living a wellness lifestyle, and uses the Gonstead Chiropractic system lead me to join Hassel Family Chiropractic.
To best serve my patients, I have completed hundreds of hours of specialty studies in Pregnancy, Pediatrics, and Gonstead Chiropractic. I am also passionate about reducing daily chemical exposure, detoxification, and using traditional nutrition to maximize healing. My focus is on health and wellness of the whole person, and I engage my patients in self-care to correct the cause of their concerns rather than only manage the symptoms.
Outside of the office I follow the same chiropractic wellness lifestyle I recommendation in the office. My priorities are to be checked by my chiropractor once a week (or more if under a lot of physical, mental, or emotional stress), eat a whole food diet, aim for 7-8 hours of sleep a night, intense workouts 3-5 times a week, as well as physical and mental restoration exercises daily. I have always been involved in various athletics, but am currently a nationally qualified NPC Bikini Competitor. I’m aiming to achieve professional qualification this year … wish me luck! Having been raised up North, for fun I love wilderness activities like fishing, lake/ cabin life, outdoor running, hiking, as well as spending quality time with good company, family, and friends. Fun Facts: I was a wildland forest firefighter for 7 summers in NW Ontario, and also lived and taught science in Rwanda Africa for four months in 2008.
I believe everyone can create vibrant health and energy, be happy, and enjoy each day to the fullest. One of the greatest challenges in achieving these goals is whether dysfunction or illness is present in the body. My chiropractic mission is to help as many families as possible achieve a state of optimal health, which enables each of us to do the work necessary to achieve our life dreams!
I believe a community is only as strong as its weakest members. To help strengthen the health and wellness of our local community, we host fun, insightful, and inspiring community health and wellness events in our office and around the community. Our “Community Outreach & Corporate Wellness Program” includes visits to community and business groups to educate the public about making healthy lifestyle choices and changes.
Please contact Dr. Lacey Gillies at (515)-270-6222 if you have any questions, or would like to schedule an event or seminar for your group.
When I was 22 I was working as a chef in my home town in Michigan. A co-worker asked for my help to move a heavy worn-out couch bed and I suffered an injury to my lower back as a result. I had never been to a chiropractor in my life and a friend suggested I go and have my back checked. I didn't want to continue masking the pain with pills and after exhausting all options I scheduled the appointment that changed my life forever. After three visits my lower back pain was eliminated and I became a true believer in the profession. I believe my lower back injury was meant to be and chiropractic became my calling in life!
Chiropractic is truly about allowing the nervous system to function at its fullest potential; it regulates and controls every cell, organ and tissue in the body. Interference in this system caused by vertebral subluxation damages the nerves that exit either side of the vertebrae causing dis-function to the tissues that nerve controls. The human body is very complex, it is organized and designed to function in a very specific manner and subluxation hinders these crucial processes. Maintaining proper spinal hygiene is important for everyone and chiropractic offers just that, this is why I love what I do so much. There is no greater feeling than being able to help others with the most important thing in life, their health. My mission is to help as many people as I possibly can.
I have a 6 month old son named Daniel and he was adjusted when he was just days old. Even the process of natural birth can be very difficult on a newborn and is most likely when they will suffer their first subluxation. Keeping our kids well adjusted allows them to thrive and be in a state of growth and development which is so important. Chiropractic is for everyone young or old, the benefits exist for all.
When I'm not at the clinic I love cooking for friends and family, exploring my new home of Des Moines which is growing on me quickly, working out, boxing, enjoying the outdoors and of course spending time with my best friend, my son Daniel! Chiropractic is my life, I believe in it to the maximum and am blessed to be able to serve this amazing community along side these fine Doctors!

I've been seeing Dr. Hassel for more than 14 years. Chiropractic health is as much of my overall health plan as exercise is. The benefits of Chiropractic and Dr. Hassel's advice over the years are too numerous to mention. It's the best relationship I have with any Dr. and the only one I look forward to seeing because I'm there staying healthy.
