Endocannabinoid Deficiency

The body is in a constant quest for balance — or in Biological terms, “homeostasis.” Homeostasis depends on your body maintaining a stable internal environment. The endocannabinoid system is very easy to throw out of balance. Causes of imbalance include emotional stress, poor diet, recreational and pharmaceutical drugs, disease, and genetics.  Here are common symptoms that may be related to an endocannabinoid deficiency.

Recreational & Medicinal Resources 


Chronic stress hijacks the nervous system causing it to be on constant "fight or flight."  This impairs metabolism, cognitive thinking, mood and behavior.  It can also creates muscle tension and weaken immune system. 

Cannabis works with the Endocannabinoid system to create homeostasis thereby bringing the mind/body back into balance so that you find relief from symptoms of chronic stress. 


Yoga & Dance

Mindful movement connects you to the vital flow of energy in your body and allows you to better pinpoint areas of tension and discomfort.


Yoga is an ancient practice that research shows:

• Reduces Stress

• Improves focus and attention

• Regulates the immune & endocrine system

• Improves posture, strength, flexibility, and overall fitness

Dance stimulates natural "feel good" hormones in the body like Dopamine & Serotonin. Easy to follow dance classes like Zumba make it simple to enjoy the health benefits of dance.  This is fun and uplifting movement that promotes cardiovascular health. 


Mindfulness Meditation Training


"Knowledge is power and self-knowledge is self-empowerment." - Dr. Bruce Lipton


  Mindfulness meditation is a mental training practice that focuses the mind on experiences in the present moment.

Studies show that a Mindfulness meditation practice can reduce symptoms of chronic stress (insomnia, weight gain, anxiety, depression) and improve overall health & happiness. 


Intuitive Eating 


Food choices impact your energy, mood, attention, sleep cycles, skin ailments, chronic pain and so much more.  

Although you may have a healthy diet, your metabolism may be impaired due to unhealthy relationships with food and body.  


Our sessions will incorporate the teachings of Eating Psychology to help you learn to support your mental health through mindful intuitive eating. 


We will focus on healing your relationships with mind, food and body.  

Break free from diets, scales, food guilt and body shame.
