Our Philosophy

In a world of medical specialists, we believe your health requires an holistic approach addressing multiple aspects of patient wellness including nutrition, regular exercise, relaxation, and healing of painful, unresolved emotions among many others.

Compass Lifestyle Clinics provides comprehensive advice in an environment where doctors and allied health professionals work in synergistic unity through chiropractic, naturopathy and functional medicine services to help patients achieve optimum health and evolve to the best of their ability.
As part of holistic health, we are supportive of medicinal cannabis, and our goal is to integrate this important therapeutic agent into modern medicine to be used together with other modalities of healing.

Cannabis should be used judiciously and responsibly in a proper clinical setting so possible side effects can be minimised and therapeutic outcomes optimised.

We put patients first. As every patient is unique, they also require different modalities of healing to ensure they are treated for their individual needs. Patients deserve to be guided by an empathetic and knowledgeable doctor.

Providing high standards of care and guiding patients on their road to better health is our ultimate goal.

We're here to help

We’ve seen first hand the process a patient must go through to pursue cannabis as a viable treatment plan. We work with doctors and Licensed Producers so that you can access the cannabis you need.
