Sunday Sanctuary Community Healing offers varied services each week!

Our landmark Sunday Sanctuary program is offered every Sunday from 10am-4pm. This program was designed to provide US with a sanctuary space to focus on our healing and transformation through yoga, acupuncture, bodywork, reiki energy healing, counsel and community. Yoga begins at 10am (sorry -no late admittance) and community healing is offered 12-4pm. You may arrive as early as 11:30am to settle in for healing services or make use of our self care station. The Haji Tribe of community-healing practitioners are AMAZING and will take great care of you!  ALL services are accessed between $5-$35. Make your reservation via the RESERVE ALL OFFERINGS tab in navigation. Click SUNDAY SANCTUARY to learn about each week's offerings. While some services are available on a walk-in basis, reservations are always prioritized.

Community Acupuncture

Community acupuncture is an effective way to maintain balance in the body, manage chronic pain and stress and activate the body's own innate ability to heal itself. At Haji Healing Salon, we heal together, within a community setting that allows us to share and lower the cost, while benefiting from a powerful healing nexus generated by the collective. Our licensed acupuncturists each have over five years experience and are skilled at handling a wide variety of health conditions and bodily concerns; they'll take great care of you!
