About four years ago, I tripped on a speed bump in an alleyway and badly injured my left wrist (TFCC tear). During the two or three months that it took to heal, I overextended my right wrist trying to do the work of two, and after a while I found that I couldn't do simple tasks like turning door knobs, opening a can of salmon, or carrying a moderately heavy grocery bag. Two more injuries to my left wrist over the next three years exacerbated the problems for both of my wrists. The different therapies I tried (including massage and physiotherapy) resulted in little or no improvement. A herbalist friend of mine suggested that I make an appointment to see Michael, since he himself had experienced a remarkable recovery from an injury under Michael's care. After only two sessions with Michael (using the modalities of laser treatment and acupuncture) I noticed a significant improvement in my wrists, and after six sessions, I recovered almost full functioning of both my wrists. Not only is Michael highly trained and knowledgeable in the field of holistic health, but he brings an earnest desire to help people and a compassionate understanding to his practice which, in my view is essential - and is what marks the difference between a health practitioner and a true healer. I highly recommend him!
