Who You Gonna Call?

After several other careers, graduating from massage school and opening my own practice in my home town has been very rewarding for me. Since December of 2000 I have given over 15,000 massage and reflexology sessions. We have expanded several times to add more therapist to help more clients in our area.

Mike always asks if you if you want an overall massage or if you have a problem to focus on. If I lead a conversation he will respond, but he respects your lead. Usually I want a quiet, relaxing massage and he always delivers.

Mike worked on my frozen shoulder & I was so impressed how careful he was but also got the job done! No pain or soreness today in my shoulder after 3 months of intensifying pain. My range of motion has improved in just one session! I'm excited for my next session so I can speed up the recovery process! Thanks Mike!

At first, I was afraid that the massage was not "strong" enough to make a difference. It did not take long for me to figure out it was the right pressure for what I needed. My only dislike was that the hour went by so fast. Next time, I think I'll schedule a 2 hour massage.

Very friendly and made sure I was doing okay several times during massage. Technique is a little different; seemed to be doing reflexology rather than normal massage? Not sure. Kept the room very cold; I had to ask for extra blanket.

I have been getting massages with Mike at Stressbusters for several years. I have never left unsatisfied. I recommend his massages to all of my friends and family. I have purchased gift certificates for friends and they loved him too. He always asks how you are doing and is willing to be more gentle or put more muscle into it. If you aren't happy with the pressure of the massage it is only because you didn't speak up. He always listens.

I really liked the buzzer to let Mike know when I was ready. Next time maybe a little longer on my calves and upper arms. My fault for not saying anything. I could have possibly fallen asleep and Mike actually did massage those two spots. Overall, my massage was wonderful. I had stated that I had a crick in my neck and sciatica problems. Mike spent a lot of time on those areas. Great job!
