I’m autistic and have a variety of chronic conditions, including anxiety, IBS, and PCOS. I approached acupuncture because my partner recommended it and talked about how it had helped them mentally and physically, and I was ready to try anything to improve the dips and wanes in my mental and physical health.
My experiences with Heart & Hands have changed my life. Not only have they improved my physical and mental health, acupuncture also gives me a great spiritual clarity and helps me see paths and patterns I would not otherwise have noticed.
I’m now a regular at Heart & Hands, it’s such an important part of my self-care and has helped me live a life where I don’t have to plan my choices around managing my anxiety or sensory overload.
I’m so grateful to Heart & Hands for creating a space that is so safe, accessible, and empowering.
We love community. And we love stories. Humans of Heart & Hands is a collection of practitioner, volunteer & client accounts of how Heart & Hands Health Collective has made a positive impact in their lives.
Help us transition to non-profit!
Our campaign, “Help us build H&H 2.0” runs February 15 – March 20. We need to raise $15 000 for our transition to a non-profit, a move towards the next stage of sustainability. As a non-profit, we could apply to the City of Victoria for a property tax exemption. This will enable us to reinvest our revenues back into our organization. It will also allow us to access alternative funding through grants and foundations to broaden our reach.
