Testimonial of R.L.
My name is Rob and I have been a member for almost 5 years now. I find the Po Chi good strong pain relief and it calms me down and helps me sleep too. I also had Reiki at the Wellness Centre with Edna for 2 1/2 years. I think the Compassion Club is a friendly place to come for support and we are all there for different reasons. Thanks, Rob

The treatments in the wellness center are second to none.  A BIG thanks to all staff and fellow members for their support and friendship!

Testimonial of C.T.
I suffer from changing and unpredictable stiffness and pain in my joints, lower back, neck and shoulders. This pain contributes to my insomnia (I often cannot get to sleep until 3-5 a.m.), depression and poor appetite. Cannabis augments the effectiveness of conventional analgesics and reduces the side effects I experience because of the analgesics (such as constipation, gas, cramps and a heavy feeling in my abdomen).
