Thanks to everyone who participated in our Community Acupuncture Survey.  Special Congratulations to Ross Archibald for winning our survey prize!  We really appreciated everyone’s feedback.  Please remember that you don’t need to wait for our next survey to give us your opinion — we value it greatly and welcome it always!

In terms of what makes a good clinic, the majority of you said that affordability was the most important element.  Access to our services has always been a major priority for us, which is why we have used a sliding scale for our services since opening in 2007.  We have tried to keep the low end of our scale at an amount that makes it possible for you to receive the care you need.

I wanted to respond to some of the specific feedback you gave us in your survey.  There were a few categories or themes that emerged as I read though your comments. Read More »Thanks for taking our Survey!

If you have been to Hemma lately, you may have noticed that many folks here are participating in 30 Days of Practice. 85 brave souls have signed up to commit to their Yoga and meditation practice for the month of March. In the Ancient Yoga Sutras, it is written that Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind. (Yoga Sutra 1.2) In order to achieve a state of Yoga, one must develop both practice and detachment. (Yoga Sutra 1.12).  Practice will look different for everyone, and we welcome practice at Hemma, out in the community, and at Home to count towards this commitment. The most important thing is that you practice regularly.

We had a lovely Opening Circle on March 1st to kick it off and shared some tools to support people over the month. If you are participating, recall the intention you set for yourself this month. If you want to join now, or participate in your own way in the future, here are 6 tips to keep you going:Read More »practice
