Testimonials

About two years ago, suddenly arthritis was in my right knee, which had never been there before. It got to a point where I would be sitting or lying down and stand up, and I would have to freeze for five or 10 seconds because the pain was so extraordinarily huge. This was getting worse and worse. I remembered Mike, gave him a call and said let’s give it a shot. 

[After our sessions, I noticed] it was getting better! It finally got to a point where I could stand up and walk away like a normal human being. I didn’t have to just cringe and brace and do all those things you do when you’re suddenly in terrible pain. And [the pain is] basically gone.

A friend of mine just got married, and it was quite the occasion. I didn’t have my knee brace on or anything. I danced a lot more than I thought I would and had a wonderful time.

If you have arthritis, what the hell? What have you got to lose? If you get better, you win; if unfortunately you don’t, then you get your money back. So what do you have to lose?

An amazing session. I’m 62, have juvenile arthritis, cancer, and more pain than most folk. The orthopedic confirms, I have bone spurs and a lot of damage. I am close to needing my 2nd hip replaced.

Before working with Mike, the pain in my hip was 5-7 out of 10 most days.

Mike worked with the inflammation, and even before the end of the session my pain was down to 2/10. It’s been 17 weeks, and the pain is still down around 2-3.

I have done massage, acupuncture, and rolfing, and this method is completely different. He seems to work on a microscopic level, changing the signals. I’m amazed. Thank you, Mike.

The pain from arthritis in my hip was an 8 out of 10. I couldn’t get any sleep because it pounded all night long. Walking was difficult. Even finding a position to sit or lie down in was excruciating.

After nine sessions with Mike, my pain is down at a 3 most of the time. I can sit in a chair without any issues for as long as I want to, I can walk five miles and it’s not a problem, it’s not hurting all night, and I can drive.

One of the things I find important about Mike is that he really cares about me as a whole person. I’m not just a bad hip. That’s unusual. It’s an exceptional experience.

As an RN, I work 12.5-hour shifts on my feet, walking on concrete most of the time. One Saturday, I tweaked my right knee at work. I iced it for 20 minutes, took 2 Aleve and went to bed with my knee wrapped in an ice pack. The pain was much worse in the morning.

Mike did a session in the evening after I got off work, and almost immediately my pain dropped from an 8/10 to a 3/10. I iced my knee per usual and went to bed.

The next morning I was surprised that the aching was nearly gone. I had good movement forward and backward, and I could do a partial squat without pain. It has been two weeks since the session and I have regained a greater range of pain-free movement.

Wisdom of the body

For three months, my thumb was frozen straight. Kaiser said to get a cortisone injection. Instead, I came to Mike, and he worked on the locked-up thumb joint. An hour later, that thumb had the same range of motion as my other, healthy thumb!

My sessions with Mike were great. He is calm and attentive and listened to my concerns. I came in with all kinds of knee, foot and shoulder pains that he improved. I am really grateful for him and his work.

The pain in my left hip was 4/10 most of the time. I felt like I would never be able to move the way I wanted without pain. Then I saw Mike. The pain was gone within half an hour, and it stayed gone. I feel a 1/10 or 2/10 pain there once in a while, but not enough to keep me down. I’m working out, practicing hula hoop, and doing all the things I want without worrying about hip pain anymore.

I suffer from pain, anxiety, and other complex health issues that I’ve had minimal success treating with allopathic medicine. After working with Mike, I’m feeling less pain and my anxieties are calmer. My awareness of my body has improved, and I’ve used that insight to make behavioral adjustments that have also contributed to further cessation of symptoms. I’m exceedingly grateful I had this opportunity. Thanks, Mike, for all the great work that you do!
