    Focused, passionate, and professional! Michael is extremely gifted at therapeutic massage and has amazed me with his work. I have seen him for lower back problems and neck and shoulder pain. He has beautiful energy and knows how to listen to what the body needs. I’m grateful to have found him and highly recommend his services.

  • Michael is one of the best massage therapists that I've worked with. Intuitive and skilled.

    Personnally the only thing I don't like is the chair.

  • Best around, hands down.

    Thorough, conscientious and in tune with what my body needs. I suffer with pain from hip dysplasia and the massage released so much tension that I felt so much better the next day. Can't wait for my next one.

    Very skillful and knowledgeable. Looking forward to the next appointment.

I left with an overall feeling of calm. Michael worked on my shoulder enough to help with the discomfort I had previously been feeling and the next couple days my muscles were just a bit sore, telling me I got a great massage without overdoing the pressure. Thanks! I will definitely be visiting again.

Michael is very professional and does a great job. He assessed my problem areas and concentrated on those as well as a great overall massage. Occasionally the massage was a little too strong and I thought I would be sore afterward. The next day I felt great with a continued feeling of well being. Thank you

The first visit I had 60% less pain in my right shoulder. I have seen chiropractors for shoulder pain for years, not much help.I have lupus and fibromyalgia, so to find something that helps the pain is wonderful.

WOW! This is probably the best massage I have ever gotten. I am a mom, and Rarely... rarely take time for myself. Michael asked what I wanted to get out of my massage. I let him know I wanted to relax, and he took it from there. He led me through some very easy relaxing meditation as he started to release the tension throughout my body,and whenever I would get distracted (I am a mom after all) his breath would bring me back to my own. The pressure was spot on, as was the temperature ( he was able to adjust the massage table to the temperature of my liking ) I never felt exposed or self-conscious during my massage, he kept me well covered, and I was able to focus on relaxation rather than my hips. His massage oil/lotion was wonderful, it had a very light relaxing fragrance, but not overpowering. Wonderful experience. I highly recommend Michael. if you aren't sure what to get your loved one for the holidays, especially those hard to buy for moms, take my advise, and get them a massage!!! it is really is a gift that will leave them feeling better for a long time, and allow them to take some time for themselves (something this mom is always struggling with)

Michael was incredibly skilled and professional creating a secure and relaxing environment leaving me in a state of relief and euphoria. He has the strength and knowledge to dig in deep and therapeutically release chronic knots and their associated discomfort. Hands down one of the best masseuses in the Eastern Sierra!

I found Michael on line when I was visiting Bishop. Of course, he turned out to be exactly what I needed. I have severe chronic pain from fibromyalgia and herniated discs in my neck. He is an amazing guy, compassionate and caring. In the short time I saw him, he made my pain bearable. When I didn't have hope, he actually made me believe that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Michael has chosen the perfect profession and he is an amazing therapist. I can't say enough about this guy. Love, love, love him. Thought about moving to Bishop just for him.
