Year End Appeal

2016 Year End Appeal 

Greetings of the Holiday Season.

I had a happy meeting in the grocery store today with a friend. She told me she had been thinking about what we do at Open Hands Wellness Clinic. She then related what we do to the following event. Her young cat got out of the house and was gone for three weeks. To her delight, when the weather got cold the cat returned.  At first it was scared to come back in the house. It was my friend’s soothing touch that encouraged the little one to return home. 

At our free  Open Hands Wellness Clinic, Empty Vessels’ primary endeavor, we provide soothing and professional touch. Open Hands is an oasis that cares for people, body mind and spirit. In the face of life’s challenges-whether physical, emotional or spiritual, caring touch can help people return home to themselves.
