Hemma’s turning Eight!

  • by

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
