Hope, Healing and WellBeing – Choosing Conscious Health with Kristen Wernecke

Kristen K. Wernecke is a non-denominational minister of healing who has been practicing massage therapy and energy healing since 1990. As the result of her own experience of painful childhood trauma, Kristen decided to become trained in various holistic healing modalities including massage, energy therapies, Emotional Freedom Technique. Her new book, Choosing Conscious Health for a Vibrant Life is a practical guide that draws on her 22 years of experience in integrative healing. Her book guides readers through an inventory of current attitudes toward diet, exercise, and stress management and various spiritual and energetic paths for health and healing. Kristen describes an overview of the book which includes stories, science, and tools for change. It is designed to help people move to the next level of awareness and broadens the options we all have for achieving conscious health.

Kristen then discusses specific topics in the book, including the connection between our emotions and overall health and well-being. By sharing specific stories, she demonstrates the efficacy of using both Western medicine and integrative healing. The importance of developing awareness of the messages we send ourselves and others, visualization, meditation, prayer and affirmations are important in fostering healing of mind, body and spirit.
