Exactly 10 years ago I was on my way to Portland to attend a workshop on Community Acupuncture. I had no idea how that experience would dramatically shape the next 10 years of my life. For years I had been dreaming of a different way to offer acupuncture, one that would introduce more people to this amazing healing modality, and here it was, happening, just a few hours south. In 2007 there were just a few community clinics operating in North America — hemma was the 18th to open and the first one in Canada to join the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA). Today there are over 200! We are proud to be part of this amazing story, and so grateful to all of you for making it possible. Thanks to everyone who helped us make this wonderful introduction video to hemma community acupuncture!
