A health and wellness center that brings together multiple facets of self-care is projected to open this fall in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. This location will provide therapy for the mind, yoga for the body, and a coffee shop to nurture the soul. NESH Founder and licensed Couples and Family Therapist, Dynesha Henderson, wants New Yorkers to understand the importance of integrating these practices into their regular routine.

“As a therapist, I’ve always wanted to incorporate the idea of ‘mind-body-soul’ into a private practice because it supports the entire person. NESH will be a place where the Brooklyn community can come to fulfill themselves holistically,” said Henderson.

In an effort to raise awareness, Henderson and supporters have taken the grassroots approach when campaigning and spreading the word about the organization throughout NYC. “I was very much inspired by Obama’s first term campaign, I wanted to recreate a similar approach for NESH. I could go to a bank and receive a loan; however, my mission is to connect and build personal relationships within the community we will be serving,” said Henderson. She decided to move forward with an online campaign to solicit support from the community. The campaign can be found at until July 4th, 2014. Already receiving positive feedback, Henderson hopes to gain continuous support from the Brooklyn community to help build the center from the ground up.

On June 14th, 2014, NESH will be sponsoring a sports conditioning class in Central Park from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm. The event is open to the public and free to attend; a $5 donation to the campaign is suggested. The group will meet at the 81st street entrance to the park. All fitness levels are welcome.
