Cannabis as medicine. Cannabis IS medicine.
We specialize in natural practices to address pain and symptoms associated with a myriad of chronic illnesses. We support our patients and their caregivers beyond the certification process, maintaining close relationships to determine ongoing needs.
Unlike some franchised medical cannabis practices that merely issue a certification and give general information, we develop individualized recommendations and education, including how to be an informed consumer, read and navigate dispensary menus and access new information that is coming fast and furious.
We bring together a team of
practitioners whose passion is
TO RESTORE function , wellness and vitality
TO HEAL by identifying and correcting the underlying root causes of chronic
disease and dysfunction
and TO COMFORT whenever possible.
Our philosophy is to layer over what may already be working in a medical plan of care, and then to take it to the next level. We bring conversation and radical listening to each client and add our shared expertise to create healing wherever possible.
Many of us at Creating Well Being are deeply rooted in the Metro West, South Shore and Cape Cod communities - our patients and their loved ones are often our friends, colleagues and neighbors.
