Brenda Jeanne Wyche, creator of Physiques, will be joining Dr. Hyman during the Physniques session to teach the Eight Silk Weaving exercises. It is the only system that students of the Shaolin Temple are allowed to share with outsiders of the temple because the lifesaving and longevity benefits are so potent, it is against the principles of the Temple to withhold such a sustaining gift.
The Eight Silk Weaving are internal organ exercises that, when practiced properly on a regular basis, build up strong chi, which can be used to improve one's own life as well as the lives of others.
You will learn the meaning of the Three Heaters and how to use the Eight Silk Weaving exercises to strengthen the immune system and maintain excellent health, vitality and longevity.

Q: You have listed practitioner and vendor on your application to rent space. What is the difference? A: A practitioner provides a service and is paid for their time. Most of the practitioners at the Health Fair will be focusing on treatments by way of energy (chi). It is important to operate in a quiet environment is quiet to insure the best connection between client and practitioner (relaxation music and your relaxed breathing would be the only sounds heard, although, sometimes there is very quiet chatter between client and practitioner). Clients request a treatment at Health Fairs usually for two reasons: to enjoy more of their current service, or as an introduction to alternative therapies and process the differences between allopathic (conventional) medicine. Clients usually receive a card or brochure for further education and service. The practitioner's goal is to assist in healing the body and helping the client appreciate the value of natural self care. A vendor provides a product to sell and customers either purchase the product or become educated about the product. There is a great deal of interaction, as a result, the environment is not quiet and talking becomes the best connection between customer and practitioner.
Q. Will the vendors and practitioners be mixed together? A. No the vendors are on the first floor, the practitioners will be on the second floor in the quietness of the library and the food will be in the basement.
Q. Do I have to undress for the practitioner services? A. Energy practices can be done with clothing on.
Q. Do I have to lay down on a table for the services? A. Energy services can be done on a table or in a chair?
Q. Are these services safe and will you be pushing religion? A. The services are safe and no one will be pushing religion. As a matter of fact, you will most likely become so relaxed, you don't want to talk during the service.
Q. Why do practitioners pay less than vendors to rent a space? A. Practitioners provide an immediate service based on time and skills. There is a standard price per minute, at Health Fairs, it is usually $1.00 per minute with a 10 minute minimum. Vendors provide products that are sold at various prices for different functions i.e. jewelry, skin care, etc. Vendors also interact with more customers than practitioners---practitioners work one on one while vendors can work one on one or talk to a group simultaneously.
Q. What is the admission fee? A. Admission if free, just pay for the services or products you want. You do not have to make reservations. You can stay as long as you like.
Q. Can I try more than one service? Will there be a problem if I do? A. Yes, I just suggest that you give yourself a few minutes before you move to another service and consider drinking some water. No, problems, only the rewards of even more relaxation and inner peace.
Q. What is the difference between vegetarian and vegan foods? A. Vegans do not eat dairy products.
Q. Do I have to try a service? A. You can just shop and purchase/experience the vendor products which are designed for natural self care. You can purchase the delicious and healthy foods (yes, I do mean delicious and healthy). You can explore all the options. You can mix and mingle, it is a safe place and all are encouraged to enter with an open heart!
Q. What is EFT?
A.EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) with EFT Brooklyn, a group of local women who are experts in the art of healing and teaching EFT. Sign up for their private sessions all day long ($20 for 30 minutes) at the 2-room location across from the library, and walk into one room for FREE demonstrations of instant pain relief, reductions of cravings, and lowering blood pressure. EFT includes a tapping technique, much like acupuncture, but without the needles, that deals with the human energy system. The EFT experts, Carolyn Meiselbach, Mary Myers and Jondi Whitis teach and demonstate this gentle,quick and effective technique and encourage people to do it for themselves at home to "get unstuck." That is to relieve their anger, past traumas, fears, phobias, stresses, depression, and other emotional problems of living.
Q. Can you provide more info on Reflexology?
A. Reflexology (also known as Happy Feet by many
clients) works on various parts of the feet for healing
or improving various parts of the body.
The practitioner uses the thumb and finger to apply
pressure on the reflexes that correspond to an organ or
gland and parts of the body as found in the feet and hands.
A reflexology chart shows the "reflex zones" worked
by reflexologists on the soles of the feet.
Similar maps exist for the position of the reflexes on
the hands and ears. In this chart, the color codes
represent the following organs or parts of the body:
Neck and Throat
Shoulder and Arm
Lung and Breast
Thyroid and Bronchial
A. What do you mean by Energy?
Q. It is difficult to define Energy. In Africa and among Native Americans, it is called Spirit, in China it is called Chi, Japan Ki, India Prana. It cannot be seen or measured, it cannot be touched or captured. It is everywhere, yet we have no way to touch it, make it tangible, or even prove its existence. Therefore, until you experience the energy from a practitioner, energy is a difficult concept to accept. The Western mind likes the tangible, the concrete and the specific. It likes a scientific explanation which defines, dissects, and categorizes. Energy transcends this kind of explanation. It doesn't fit easily into a strict biomedical framework. It is simply indefinable in those terms.
Energy is within the body, it is like power in a rechargeable battery. Occasionally it needs to be replenished. The energy of the universe is inexhaustible, yet the body needs fresh energy to maintain its vitality. When you are experiencing the "energy," you feel healthy and vigorous. By energizing the body, it is revitalized naturally, enabling it to fight off illness and maintain good health. The true secret to replenishing energy resides in our breathing. Breathing helps you focus so that you can connect and listen to your body for guidance. The "energy" practitioner serves as a channel or conduit and partners with you for a strong connection. The connection can be considered a gift or message (from your perspective -- Universe or God).
We also will have natural crafted products to purchase
which can also enhance your well being.
Q. Where is the best place to get more information on these alternative services? A. Reiki, Reflexology, Massages, Chi, etc. you can search on the Internet but remember some sites are full of sensational claims. I have tried to select ethical practitioners who are interested in the "greatest good" of their clients. Also, select vendors who are interested in providing the best quality products for the "greatest good" of their customers.
