Bed Stuy Wellness Clinic
Organized by: Danett Bean
For Danett Bean and Bishara Wilson, nothing is better than the ability to be of service. This desire is what prompted them to become acupuncturists and return to their community to provide their services. Though they each had their own health practices before meeting and getting married, together they have more than 25 years of experience serving the communities of Brooklyn, Harlem, and the Bronx. Now, they are in the process of finding a home for their practice. Gentrification and all that comes with it, is pushing Bishara and Danett out of yet another office. This time however, in continuing with their dedication to their work in the community, they are looking to plant their roots and buy a building to house their practice. Danett and Bishara plan to call the permanent location the Bed Stuy Wellness Clinic. There they will treat their private patients and be able to offer affordable healthcare in the form of community style acupuncture and mind-body therapies. They will also provide a variety of educational platforms, and a rental space for other health professionals. The services that Danett and Bishara offer are indispensable to the needs of our community. With Bishara’s specialization in pain reduction and Danett’s in women’s health, they have helped innumerable people improve the quality of their life. Additionally, they assist with the care of diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular conditions, weight loss and many other ailments that plague our neighborhoods. The two see the Bed Stuy Wellness Clinic as a way to provide innovative solutions that can lessen health disparities for their community and be beneficial to the planet. They see this wellness center as a place of healing for the whole family. This includes specialty care for women and men's health, geriatrics and education regarding natural child wellness. Preventive care is the key goal of Danett and Bishara's healing philosophy. As part of this multidisciplinary clinic, they will offer— Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Massage, Nutritional Counseling, Rei Ki, Iridology, Aromatherapy, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga, Meditation, and other healing modalities. They plan to have a Sauna, Steam Room and Herbal Pharmacy on site. Additionally there will be seminars, lectures, classes and health support groups. The Bed Stuy Wellness Clinic will not only work well for people, but also the earth. They plan to make the building environmentally sustainable and green certified through LEED, with solar paneling, and an organic herbal and food garden. The potential value of this clinic and all of the lives that it can help is immeasurable. Please donate today and help bring this dream of the Bed Stuy Wellness Clinic into fruition for Danett, Bishara, the people of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn and all those in search of options for natural health.
