Stress is unavoidable. The chemical changes that stress creates in our bodies can manifest as physical changes, and over a prolonged period of time can have a detrimental effect on your wellbeing. Negative energy can also impact how you run your business, your potential for growth and how you manage difficult situations. This panel will share ways to develop healthy stress-coping mechanisms, and how to fight the physical effects of stress so you can have better health, naturally. Come with your questions, your "case studies" and your hard-to-deal-with issues! The discussion with these panelists will be facilitated by Lynn Soto, President of a prominent Chicago law firm, and will focus on trouble-shooting those sticky everyday situations in which we all find ourselves and how to manage them for success.

Amanda H. Young, President & Founder of Clean Up Your Energy, is a certified Energy Mastery Core practitioner. After having children, she quickly experienced changes in her own body including anxiety, panic attacks, hormone imbalances, and abdominal discomfort that left her seeking answers. In an effort to re-balance her health naturally, she consulted a long list of traditional doctors and non-traditional healers in pursuit of better health and improved happiness. On her journey, she was introduced to energy work by studying Reiki and Theta Healing while gaining a deeper understanding and connection to her own intuitive gifts.
Realizing that the various techniques she was using to maintain her own health were limited in their ability to provide lasting relief, she sought a comprehensive healing modality to address both the physical symptoms she was experiencing and the emotional blocks that accompanied them.
In 2016, she was introduced to Energy Mastery by its founder, Sheevaun O'Connor Moran, and went on to become a certified Energy Mastery Core practitioner in 2017. As a practitioner, Amanda has provided lasting relief from migraine headaches, concussions, anxiety attacks, respiratory illnesses, and physical body pains across the globe. Designed as a complete and elegant healing solution, Energy Mastery sessions can be performed in person or remotely as they involve no physical touch. Similar to Wi-Fi technology that connects our computers to the Internet, energy healing connects to an energetic body to clear and resolve issues at their core for fast and effective results.
