At EKKA, we’ve created what we wanted to experience.
We envisioned a better holistic wellness product – one that went deeper, built community and created sustainable change.
EKKA is the world’s first recovery subscription box. Ekka was founded in 2016 by Yvette Jacquez and Nuria Reed.
It’s impossible to journey through this life without experiencing damage. And because of that, we seek to escape and numb – with work, food, alcohol/drugs, relationships, the internet and more.
In doing so, we move away from Spirit and become lost in a repeating cycle of destructive behavior.
Today, we work with experts in the broad fields of recovery and wellness. Our team has journeyed through love addictions, eating disorders, bereavement, alcoholism, co-dependency, drug-abuse, gambling addiction and much more.
At EKKA, we want to make the most of this life and keep our faces turned to the sun.
Just like you, reading this, wherever you are.
At Ekka, we work with health practitioners, recovery professionals, creatives and artist makers to bring you a different recovery box every month. We each bring to the table a lifetime of longing, loss, and love. We will continue to embrace recovery, exploring new rituals, and testing ways to find peace and balance in this strange and beautiful world we live in.
