Mastering Stress for Optimal Health

Ann Doherty, Annie Enea, Serge Kahili King, Diane Koerner

According to the ancient Hawaiian Huna philosophy, all illness is a result of stress. Modern medical research continues to prove this relationship – linking stress to everything from high blood pressure to weight gain. If you know how to relieve tension, the body’s healing energy can flow and you can achieve “instant healing.” This workshop reveals ancient secrets to managing stress as well as the latest information on achieving optimal health.
