Wellness Services, Classes, & Groups

Continue reading below for a descriptions of Magnolia Oakland's classes, support groups, and wellness services. Everything on this page is offered to our patients. Visit the Magnolia events calendar for the current schedule.

Patient wellness services

Magnolia offers the following therapeutic services to our patients:

  • Massage
    Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.

  • Chiropractor
    Join the millions of Americans who have not only found relief from back pain, but also a pathway to wellness with chiropractic's natural approach to healthcare.

Groups & Classes

Senior Wellness Group

Attendance not limited to seniors. Must have a medical marijuana card to attend. Patients and Caregivers welcome. Come and help our Clinical Director, Barbara Blaser, by brainstorming ideas for future Senior Wellness sessions. 

Want a professional trainer to show us how to do morning stretches? Want more information on CBD? How about nutrition updates? Fall prevention? Been afraid to try the chiropractor or Magnolia's other ancillary services? Let’s invite the doc to come meet with us. 

Tea & Cookies with the Director of Clinical Services

Must have a medical marijuana card to attend. Patients and caregivers welcome. Want to learn about your health condition? Get your blood pressure checked? Talk to other people who have similar issues. Let’s see if we can make this a regular event to just spend a little time together.  

Come spend time with other people who may experience the same issues you do. You are not alone!

Caregiver Group

Attendance not limited to caregivers. Must have a medical marijuana card to attend. Patients and caregivers welcome. Did you know Caregiver issues can affect individuals who provide care to a loved one, friend, or family member? These issues may include stress, isolation, and fatigue... just to name a few. It can be rewarding to care for a loved one or family member, but it can also be stressful, traumatic, or otherwise difficult.

Come spend time with other people who may experience the same issues you do. You are not alone!
