Pain, inflammation, relaxation, the endocannabinoid system, the nervous system, cannabis and TCM—

What’s the connection?

📖 Short Story:

Acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, cannabinoids, terpenoids and other compounds within the plant may help increase one’s quality of life, alleviate stress, anxiety, pain, inflammation, sleep issues and more.

If you’re struggling with any of these issues, we have safe and natural options for you to try. 💛

📚 The Slightly Longer Story:

The ECS is a complex system that regulates mood, memory, digestion, inflammation, motor function, pain, appetite, blood pressure, immune response, sleep, bone growth, the protection of neural tissues, and more.

Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found all throughout the body— in our organs, glands, connective tissue, immune cells, brain, the central nervous system, etc. 🧠💪🏼

Cannabinoids can be endogenous (we produce them) or exogenous (the plant produces them). 🌱

There are 5 known endogenous cannabinoids— Anandamide and 2-AG being the most researched. Anandamide is released during exercise, human connection, acupuncture, massages, and other times of relaxation.

Acupuncture and cannabis can both stimulate the endocannabinoid system, often resulting in improved moods, better sleep, relaxation, reduced inflammation, pain, migraines, anxiety, etc. and an overall enhanced quality of life. 🖤

We’re here whenever you’re ready to improve your well-being. Come in to see what your canna options, book that consultation with Dr. Shaheen-Leblanc or Scotti for acupuncture, Lauren Burk LE, LMT for a massage and start feeling like a BETTER YOU.
