Many Hands , published since 1979, is a magazine for readers seeking information about holistic health practices including disciplines of the body-mind connection. The continuing operational goal of Many Hands is to provide information about ways of maintaining psychological, physical and emotional vitality and wellness. The format of both the magazine and the website encourages advertisers to fully describe their product or service in their own words and offers readers a chance to learn more about the many options available to them in our region.


We have a 30-year reputation for integrity, quality and credibility. We offer personalized service for each ad, large or small, including proofs before press.

Our distribution is fast, repeats within each publishing cycle, and changes for the best coverage as the market changes.

Many Hands is kept by readers for months, even years, after publication.
