US medi-spa offers medical marijuana recommendation letters

A medi-spa in Massachusetts, US, is offering medical marijuana evaluations in addition to its regular preventative health procedures.

Evaluations are carried out by doctors at the clinic, who then offer recommendation letters for the use of medical marijuana, for patients with chronic and debilitating conditions. These letters are then given to a health practitioner who decides whether to dispense the prescription or not.

In 2008, Massachusetts voters decriminalised the possession of small amounts of marijuana. Massachusetts became the 18th state to legalise medical marijuana when voters passed a ballot in 2012.

Dr Katherine Downey, founder of MD Medical Spa and Wellness Center, has adopted a “whole body” approach to medicine and patient care. Her clinic offers preventative/ alternative treatments from a physical, mental and emotional standpoint – for example, counselling services and exercise regimen maintenance programmes are provided.

Medi-spa services include Botox/ fillers, IPL/ other laser therapies, teeth whitening, health and nutrition courses, alternative pain therapy and stress reduction services.

MD Medical Spa and Wellness Center has two locations to service the needs of patients from Boston to Cape Cod. The business will soon be expanding, not only to cover more areas within Massachusetts but also to other states as well.
