“I was referred to the Healing Sanctuary by a client of mine. I was skeptical as to whether or not they would be able to help me. I had been employed in the Western medical field for 20 years and had tried Western medicine treatment first. I was suffering from severe urticaria (hives) and the only solution my allergist had for me was prednisone. This was a temporary solution. After determining that long term use of prednisone has deleterious side effects, I made an appointment with THC.”

“THS’ approach to overall well-being is refreshing and inspiring. Teaching by example and counsel, blending the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components in the quest for ultimate health and peace. When one steps into the teaching environment, a metamorphosis begins. I recommend THS teachings to many who suffer from the ailments of a lifetime of stress, illness, and depression.”
Marty, Stress & depression
“I have been coming to the Healing Sanctuary for the last two years and have received botox treatments and most recently, a Juvederm treatment around my mouth area to fill wrinkles in and prevent my lipstick from running. I have sent several friends to THS as well and all of us have been extremely pleased with not only the professionalism and tendency to err on the conservative side vs. “overdoing it,” but also the knowledge, expertise, honesty, and sincerity. I would highly recommend THS!”

“For the past four years I have suffered from a chronic pain condition called interstitial cystitis/ pelvic floor myopathy. My doctors, physical therapist and acupuncturist all encouraged me to go to The Healing Sanctuary. They have tremendous breadth and depth of knowledge in the healing arts, and addresses all aspects of a person: body, mind, spirit. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with The Healing Sanctuary!”

“I want to share some great news! I took two pregnancy tests and they both came out positive. My husband and I want to thank you for what you did. We are very certain our acupuncture sessions were a success. We cannot thank you enough, we are very happy and I wanted to share this happiness with you. Thank you for your great dedication, you really care about  your patients and I truly thank you for that. Once again thank you so much for everything.”

“I have had great success with the anti-inflammatory diet changes you helped me make. I have lost 35 pounds and have kept it off. I continue the gluten free portion of the diet, as well as trying to eat every 3 hours and include more veggies than before. My depression is lifting.”

Dr. Grace Soltynki’s Weight Loss Program Clients

“In the past I have been a sometime dieter. I have tried Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers. My complaint with Jenny Craig was that the food was not fresh and the snacks and desserts were just low calorie versions of junk food. With Weight Watchers, all I did was think about food. It was like let’s make a deal with myself – I allowed myself to spend my points however I wanted (and stay within the program) and eat junk food at the expense of healthy food. I came to Dr. Grace after watching a friend of mine lose 55+ pounds in less than six months. I started with the detox and a week later with the drops. After 33 days, I have lost 23.6 pounds and I start maintenance tomorrow. I never felt hungry and didn’t physically crave any type of food like I thought I would. I prepared simple meals and really enjoyed learning to eat simpler. I really appreciated the all-encompassing program. If I had a problem with leg cramps, Dr. Grace would mix up a potion to drink and send me home with drops to counteract the problem; I never had leg cramps again. It was the same thing with elimination problems and sleep problems; a little counseling and a little herbal remedy and my problems would be greatly diminished. I am not sure if it was the acupuncture or the nature of the drops themselves, but I was not anxious and had a sense of well-being the entire time. This was one of the easiest things that I have ever done! Not only did I lose the weight, but it came off in places that it usually doesn’t (stomach and thighs). I am now committed to a new way of eating and a new way of thinking about food. I still have a ways to go, but I am positive that I have changed my life and my relationship with food forever. Thank you Dr. Grace!”

“My name is Maegan and I ‘m 31 years old. I have struggled with my weight for many years, losing 5-10 lbs and regaining it back in no time. At 5 foot 11, I was able to hide extra 25 lbs very well. My New Year resolution included taking care of myself and losing weight for good. I came to The Healing Sanctuary in January and decided to embark on a 90 day comprehensive weight loss program, designed not only to help you lose unwanted pounds but also to learn about nutrition, exercise and supplements to help me stay healthy for life. I have finished 9 of the 12 sessions and cannot believe in the transformation of my body, so far. I lost 19 lbs and 5 inches from my hips. I no longer crave wine and sweets. But most important, I no longer feel anxious in social situations. Thank you Dr. Grace for helping me feel more confident and loving towards myself.”
Maegan, Irvine
“I’ve known Dr Grace for over 5 years now. In two separate sessions with her I was able to lose over 40 lbs utilizing a safe, healthy, and effective regiment. She is incredibly knowledgeable in the area of wellness and I highly recommend her services to anyone looking to achieve a more complete and healthy lifestyle. You won’t find anyone better than Dr. Grace!”

Devin Osborne’s Clients

“I used to take 3 Morphine and 8 Dilaudid every day for pain. I would also take Ibuprophin when I was in too much pain and the Morphine and Dialudid were not working. This was a daily ritual and every week I had to go to the emergency room at least once. That was because I had taken the maximum amount of medicine so I needed to be monitored by the emergency room doctor whenever I needed more than the maximum doses. My pain level was always between 7 and 10 on a range of 1 to 10. I would be in tears the majority of evenings due to pain.”

“Three months ago Devin began teaching me Qigong and sending me home with a worksheet until the following class. I questioned the worksheet the first week, but never again. He has me doing exercises that are healing me from the inside out. I can simply do one of the exercises and the pain is either lessened or gone. I get more and more eager to go to class to see what other steps we can do to make me feel better without the use of medicine. I don’t want to start becoming immune to medications.”

“Now I still have good days and bad but the majority are on the better side. I now only use 2 Morphine a day and 2 or 3 times a week 1 Dilaudid as opposed to 3 Morphine and 8 Dialudid per day. I was taking about 50 tablets a week for pain!  So in three months time I have cut the medication I was taking by around 80%. I have learned just how far I am able to push the Fibromyalgia and still become pain free within a couple of hours.”

“Devin has given me a whole new outlook on my health. I know if I get in too much pain I can always take my medication, but I attempt all the steps from the weekly worksheet first. With this I become in control of my health and not the medication like it was 3 months ago. My pain level has dropped to a 0 on a good day and up to a 5 on a bad one. That is much better than before. With less pain, you have less depression, stress, and the terrible fatigue that are all associated with the illness. Last week I had to walk up 3 flights of stairs and was expecting it to be painful and difficult. When I got to the 3rd floor I was amazed that I was already there. Before I would have to stop every floor and rest because I would be out of breath and in too much pain. There was no pain and I did not have to stop once! I could not do that 3 months ago.”

“When Devin and I first met I was in pain from a Sciatic nerve condition that was affecting my lower back and hip. My treatment up to that point solely consisted of taking a high level of muscle relaxers and occasional pain pills. I was also encouraged to use a heating pad on occasion. The medications worked to mask the pain unless I moved too quickly or experienced fatigue from driving and then I would have pain again. I thought I had to resign myself to living with this until some magic day in the future when it might go away.” My experience with Devin was remarkable. Through his guidance and patience I started a practice of stretching, breathing, walking, and postures that alleviated my pain. I am now pain free. The full benefits of my work with Devin include, but are not limited to; increased flexibility, decreased stress, better posture, improved circulation and increased self-esteem. Devin has taught me how to feel good physically and emotionally and how to further appreciate the Mind-Body connection. I would recommend him to anyone looking for help.”

“We sometimes find ourselves at a crossroads not knowing which way to turn. For me that moment came about 4 years ago when I was told by my doctors that I had chronic pain resulting from a serious car accident. The only choices I was given were pain pills, antidepressants, and cortisone shots in my spine.  My question to myself was did I want a lifetime of increasing doses of medication and eventual surgery. Or would I try something where I would not medicate myself but would drop the victim persona and become a survivor.” I joined Devin’s Tai Chi class against the advice of my doctors and yet here I am pain free, no medication, and with a very high level of energy most of the time. With his help and teaching I have been able to heal my lower back and hip pain from the accident and even get back some of the things I thought I would have to give up forever. I used to practice seated meditation every morning but had to give it up since the accident because it was too painful. But now through his teaching not only can I meditate again but I can get into the full-lotus position which is quite amazing. I have not been able to do that in 30 years! To get up in the morning and live my life pain-free with boundless energy is truly explosive. “
