Hemma’s turning Eight!

Thank you all for helping us make it to our 8th birthday! We will be celebrating with some special sales on Yoga, Acupuncture, and our store from October 16th-19th. We invite you to our special events, prizes, and cake planned for Sunday October 18. We appreciate each and every one of you and the support you have given us over the years!

When we first opened hemma back in 2007 one of our primary goals was to create a space that was inviting and accessible to as many people as possible. We recognized that an important aspect of accessibility was affordability. That’s why we chose to offer acupuncture on a sliding scale. A lot of people were sceptical about whether such a system would work financially; “won’t people take advantage of it?”, “aren’t you undervaluing your services?” The simple truth is that there is a wide range of ability to pay, based on a wide range of circumstances, and our sliding scale creates opportunities for more people to access our services. The model was so well received in the first few years that in 2012 we decided to offer it for our yoga classes too. Since then we have been offering all our services on a sliding scale and have never looked back! Thanks again for your patronage and support! Michael


Be Thankful

This Thanksgiving weekend, including Monday, we are OPEN regular hours for Yoga and Acupuncture. We are thankful for YOU and are here for your self-care!

This holiday weekend is often a time of celebrating family, friends, food, and that which we are thankful for. Of course we don’t need to wait for a harvest holiday to practice gratitude, however it sparks a sweet reminder. For me, I am remembering a practice passed onto me from a dear friend. This practice is to mentally say Thank You every time you see something beautiful in your day. This could be something in nature, artwork, an interaction between 2 people, or anything! As you are wandering around this long weekend, celebrate the beauty you see!
