The 4 Pillars of Healing

YOUR journey begins here

cannabinoid THERAPY

Prime your mind with cannabis therapy and bring your body and mind into a state of balance. Cannabis awakens your nervous system producing a neurotransmitter called anandamide. This will make you feel joy, calm your nervous system and help you feel normal again.

Treat the root cause

Enrolment into the Vac Rehab Program for Canadian Veterans is required to receive the professional medical treatment for service related injuries. Such treatments as CBT, EMDR, Neuro/biofeedback, among other treatment options now allow for a better understanding of the root cause surrounding ones trauma. If you have a CAF service related injury we can help guide you in the right direction.

Natural Healing methods

Ok, you’re getting close now, understanding and continuing to work on the root cause of your trauma. Expect set backs but just bumps in the road, this is where the hard work becomes the heart work and we don’t mean cardiac. To be vulnerable and make tough choices is a sign of being on the right path toward finding who you are. Lashing outward is usually a reflection of ones own reality requiring more individual practice on some of the modalities listed. So, be easy on yourself because your 27 year old trauma brain doesn’t know your 39, for example.
