Mike is a remarkably skilled massage therapist. Over the course of five appointments, he has helped me to resolve or start solving problems in multiple muscle groups that have been tight or filled with trigger points. The most dramatic shift has been through his work on my quadratus lumborum (q.l.) muscle. Before starting to see him, I was literally moving like an old woman. It was hard for me to stand up and sit down. Walking was often painful. But within two sessions, my mobility is back. I get up, sit down, and walk with ease. Mike not only listens to what I'm saying, he pays attention to how I'm reacting and breathing. He also does a great job at diagnostics to get a sense of where movement may be impaired and which muscles or muscle groups are likely involved. He also makes great recommendations for measures I can take at home to keep progressing in between sessions. Considering what bad shape I was in when I showed up at his office for the first time in January 2017, Mike has been provided miracles. There's more work to do, but I already feel like a new person thanks to his abilities, insights, and thoughtful care.
