TRANSFORMATIONAL LIFE COACHING

Dr. Adam Gries has helped me find post-traumatic growth in the midst of my PTSD. I had been to three therapists seeking treatment for complicated PTSD, which was a result of grave childhood abuse and being a victim of a crime as an adult–though the therapy had helped with the acute stage of trauma, I was barely treading water. When I arrived at the treatment session at Awakenings, I was very near the end, and trying to give myself one last shot. That was over two years ago and, with Dr. Gries’ wisdom, direction and compassionate listening, I relish my life and have hopes emerge each day. He is surely doing what God made him to do!

MORE THAN SKIN DEEP SOLUTIONS 

“Adam’s treatment have dramatically reduced my issues with pain, spasms and controlling my body temperature. His guidance in the connection between mind and body have been instrumental in developing much improved mental health. The combination of the two have created a quality of life I’d thought I couldn’t feel again.”

– Joseph R.


MASSAGE THERAPIST WHO LISTENS

” My massage at Awakenings Health by Chelsea was wonderful! She is very professional, attentive and thorough. She listened to what I needed and did a great job…I especially appreciated her calm, unhurried style, as well! I’m booking again next week!”

– Sarah P.


EXCEPTIONAL PRENATAL MASSAGE

Chelsea is an amazing therapist! She is thorough, intuitive, and she listens. I’m in my third trimester and she’s made this pregnancy so much easier! I get prenatal massage once a week. I feel so relaxed and at ease every time I get off the table. I’ve been getting massages for years and have never had a therapist like her!

RECOVERY TIME CUT IN HALF 

“Adam’s treatment’s have cut down the amount of time I would otherwise have needed for my back and shoulder problems. His work has also relieved my food allergies and digestive problems. His treatment was also remarkably effective in relieving my symptoms of minor depression without the requirement of any drugs to do so.”

– Dan M.


YOGA HAS IMPROVED MY HEALTH

“In the last 20+ years, I have enjoyed many classes and retreats with some gifted teachers who are tuned into the truth, beauty and compassion that lies behind the asanas/poses of yoga. Three teachers stand out as masters of the art and science of yoga and Laura Gries is one of them. Each class is specially crafted to teach the heart and message behind the movements of the body. Since working with Laura, my health has expanded exponentially–the health of my body and soul. She has actually taught me how to breathe again and her instruction is helping my spirit in some very meaningful ways! Her warmth and engaging spirit are a bonus!”

– Deana V.


NO MORE BACK PAIN! 

“Although I never thought I’d use acupuncture, I had debilitating back pain and was told I needed back surgery. The numerous drugs I was taking didn’t work and the pain was getting worse. Even physcial therapy was no help. I felt hopeless. Acupuncture was was my only hope. Six weeks after starting my back pain was gone and I was back at work.”

– Donald P.


I FOUND THE ANSWERS AND SOMEONE WHO REALLY CARED 

“After my injury, I felt like everyone had given up on me or they had no answers. Adam does what no other therapy can do because the needles are so precise in where and what they do. I have never experienced anyone who cared so much about me. I felt like I was in such good hands and that they would do whatever it took to help.”

– Lloyd M.


EVEN AS A YOGA TEACHER I’M IMPRESSED

“The depth and experience that Laura brings to yoga comes through in her thoughtful teaching. She gently challenges and encourages us to literally and physically move in new ways. I have been a yoga teacher for 15 years, and her adjustments are some of the best I’ve ever seen! Thank you!”

– Sarah P.


PREGNANT WITHIN MONTHS 

“After a miscarriage my husband and I didn’t know where to turn. Prior to seeing him, we had tried every trick in the book for almost two years including treatments for fertility. We heard from a friend about Adam and I knew that this was the right decision the minute I met him. I appreciated his kind words, gentle and positive manner. Adam taught me how acupuncture supports the body to heal itself in a natural way and I quickly discovered I was pregnant. We’ve now had a baby boy and we are so grateful to Adam.”

– Mark and Christie L.


NO MORE PAIN IN MY LEGS 

“I wanted to write you to tell you that I am MUCH better. I slept thru the night for the first time in a month…No leg pains! Thank you so much Adam.”

– Leon D.


OFF MEDICATION AND NO MORE HEADACHES 

“When I first began with Adam I had absolutely no energy, restless legs, headaches, and a whole list of other symptoms. A few months working with Adam and I feel fantastic! My headaches are gone. I have no more restless legs and I was able to completely get off my medication. Best of all, Adam has worked with me to change my mental approach to my health and helped me become emotionally more stable. I feel I have healed from the inside out.”

– Shawn W.
