As a charitable, non-profit community service we rely on funding and sponsorship from foundations, as well as on class fees and personal donations. These contributions sustain our current classes, workshops, retreats, private consultations, outreach programs and online resources.
We strive to provide an ever broader range of services and support to the back care and scoliosis community, not only in Vancouver but across North America. Your donations ensure that we continue to grow and provide greater access to these vital services.
All donors receive a tax receipt.

In 2014 we received a grant from the Rick Hansen Foundation to start a research project on how to better support teens with scoliosis. This research is currently being conducted in cooperation with the UBC Department of Kinesiology.
