> We now carry Charlotte’s Web a.k.a. CW Hemp Products! Vape Pens, Hemp Oils, Hemp Capsules and Hemp Infused Topical Gel…
What is Charlotte’s Web™ Hemp Oil?
Charlotte’s Web™ (CW) is a whole plant hemp extract containing the entire range of U.S. Government patented cannabinoids. Charlotte’s Web™ was created using proprietary genetics developed by Colorado’s Stanley brothers. Classified as hemp and thus legal to ship to all 50 states, Charlotte’s Web™ contains THC levels of 0.3% or less. The United States Farm Bill of 2014 classified industrial hemp as containing less than 0.3% THC on a dry-weight basis. Because Charlotte’s Web™ products contain less than 0.3% THC, we are allowed by U.S. Federal law to conveniently ship to your doorstep. Charlotte’s Web Hemp™ products are classified as hemp and are thus legally available to anyone who wishes to purchase them.

> NEW ~ Visceral Manipulation (VM) is a form of bodywork which assists with many aliments through light specific touch of an organ system. VM can assist with musculoskeletal aches and chronic pain, as well as assisting with emotional healing. Components of energy work and biomechanical techniques provide a unique experience to the client. In a nutshell, but not limited to this, our bodies receive input from the outside environment and with the external information it creates an emotion, when the human body receives an emotion it is processed and stored within the body, sometimes emotions can become trapped and are unable to complete the process which can then persist or present in the body as a pain or dis-ease. What to expect: When receiving visceral manipulation an individual is clothed in comfortable lose clothing, the practitioner will provide skin to skin touch (typically the abdominal area) to effectively provide proprioceptive input to the organ requesting attention. Sessions typically last 30 minutes and clients are noticeably relaxed following bodywork, often times reporting decreased pain or tension in their specific problem area. ½-hour session w/ Kate Coleman, LMT ~ SPECIAL $55 (reg. $65).
