Our Impact

Prana Hands started in 2010 as the desire to share meditation techniques and meditate together with friends grew into a sense of purpose: to spread these tools and share it with more and more people. As I became a Military spouse, I got involved in the lives of many active duty members and veterans and I saw the changes in my own husband as he joined our group meditation sessions. It was clear that the military community needed these tools. We went from weekly meditations at our center in Pacific Beach to meditations at Balboa Naval Hospital and we’ve had hundreds of people join our sessions. Our organization continued to grow as we realized other needs our heroes have. We offer free Acupuncture sessions to Military as well as scholarships to Energy Therapy workshops teaching more tools to improve their health and wellness. The impact of these practices on their lives goes beyond what I could have imagined when I first started our group meditations. For happier and more joyful Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. They are our mission, our mission is to support their health and wellness journey.
