Kristen Cooper founded 716 Health in January of 2015. She was passionate to help others understand the connection between emotions, physical pain and illness. Like many of us, Kristen had a series of stressful life circumstances, which created the perfect storm for auto-immune disease.
From a failed, abusive marriage, to raising her daughter while attending college and working full-time- she started having immune issues and her health was failing. After many years and doctor's appointments, she was diagnosed with Crohn's disease as well as other auto-immune issues.
She decided to become her own health advocate and her journey to holistic health started. She has no interest in masking her symptoms with medicine (she is not anti-medicine) and was interested in finding the root cause behind her failing health. Chronic fatigue, painful stomach issues, brain fog, and flu-like muscle aches and symptoms were not a life she wished to live daily. She started becoming obsessed with learning about the mind, body connection and how herbs, meditation and stress reduction, energy healing, hypnotherapy, and eating a clean diet can help reset your body to perform in harmony. Kristen educates her clients about Epigenetics (learn how to alter your DNA sequence by switching genes on and off), how to retrain your brain to match the habits to create the life you dream of, nutrition, psychology and mindfulness techniques, and more. Some of Kristen's mentors include: Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Amen, Dr. Orloff and many more.
She was one of the original 5 who helped create The Buffalo Wellness Center, a nonprofit dedicated to helping anyone coping with illness learn integrative education and pay for some, if not all, of their holistic care needs. Kristen stepped down as President of The Buffalo Wellness Center in 2016, but still supports their endeavors and believes in the cause. She currently is the President of local nonprofit: ChangeMS.org. Kristen is a passionate lifelong learner. Her past and present pursuits consists of: College Director, Medical Center Practice Manager, Small Business Consultant, Life Coach, Intuitive Empath Healer, Master Reiki Healer, Certified Hypnotherapist, Aromatherapist and Meditation Specialist. She strives to leave her footprints noticed and help impact our community positively. Kristen has taught over 500 wellness classes all across WNY and trained over 200 wellness coaches. Her passion is helping others turn their pain into purpose. She welcomes collaboration and new and healthy relationships. Feel free to contact her: 716-777-9639.
We are located and proud to work in the The Center at 1100 Military
