Elements Health and Wellness Center
12620 N. Cave Creek Rd., Suite 1, Phoenix, Arizona
Elements Caregiver Collective is celebrating with a Memorial Day patient fair to thank of their patients for their support over the past 1½ years. Reopening in June as an Elements Health and Wellness Center, this location will be offering a full line of low cost memberships, featuring discounted therapeutic services and herbal remedies. Once open as a health and wellness center, any patient with a MMJ card can enjoy the benefits of membership, receiving free, top tier strains of cannabis. Conveniently located in north Phoenix, Elements will provide services ranging from acupressure, a fresh raw juice bar infused with CBD-rich add-ons, colonics to a wide variety of bulk herbs, designed to effectively treat a host of debilitating illnesses. Existing Elements patients will receive a platinum VIP Patient Member card entitling them to numerous ongoing therapeutic benefits.
“This is an exciting time for medical marijuana patients in Arizona as the dispensary program begins in earnest. Dispensaries, working in tandem with licensed caregivers, will bring a new level of professionalism in the industry,” Elements Managing Director, Ingrid Joiya said. “We are pleased to offer patients the vital services that play an integral part in their overall wellness. Over the past 1½ years, Elements has proven that its professional standards are second to none. We have truly seen the benefits of cannabis therapy improve the quality of life for patients ranging from a 12 year old with Crohn’s disease to a returning vet suffering from the severe and chronic pain caused by PTSD, to an 87 year old with Alzheimers.”
Patients will find a wide range of services and medicated and non-medicated products available at each location, including freshly baked Pure Bliss™ Premium Medibles and Topicals, professional naturopathic services, reduced rate psychological treatments, acupuncture and aromatherapy. Elements will exclusively offer many products, including infused taffy, on-tap sodas and juices not available in any other dispensary, collective, compassion club or health and wellness center in the state. “All team members at Elements are major proponents of smokeless options, believing that patients can only experience the true medicinal value of cannabis through other methods of ingestion”, Joiya explains. “Elements Health and Wellness Centers and Therapeutic Dispensaries are focused on patient education and wellness, and have made major strides in that arena by incorporating the professional alternative therapies offered by Phoenix Naturopathic Center. Through that collaboration, Elements offers a full range of naturopathic services and alternative treatments including acupuncture, colonics and therapeutic massages. Elements intends to establish the gold standard as the premier provider of alternative therapies and treatments for patients suffering from debilitating illnesses provided in a warm and inviting surrounding.
Every Elements location is home to the proprietary SmartVendtm technology, including the Cashless Kiosktm and advanced biometric security. Patients can continue to experience an enhanced sense of security and safety without bulletproof glass, back rooms, iron gates, exposed jars of cannabis and security guards with firearms. According to Joiya, “Many of Elements’ patients are at their wits end by the time they walk into one of our facilities. There is absolutely no reason that these patients should feel as if they’re criminals when seeking treatment for their debilitating illnesses. The Department of Health Services has done everything within its power to promote a medical based marijuana program by licensing a network of dispensaries and caregivers. It is now time for those of us committed to promoting compliant professionalism in the industry to do our part.”
Elements Therapeutic Dispensary and Elements Health and Wellness Centers support several non-profit programs and intend to further develop their monthly “adopt an illness” program as well as provide low cost or no cost medicine to indigent patients and military personnel. Existing members of Elements Caregiver Collective will receive exclusive benefits as Platinum VIP Member cardholders. “Whether you take advantage of the no-cost member registration at any of the Elements Health and Wellness Centers or become a regular patient at Elements Therapeutic Dispensary, you will never simply be a retail customer, but will become an invaluable member of the Elements family.” Joiya concluded.
