"Post Kona 2007 I came down with a case of Illiotibial Tract Syndrome (ITB) that pretty much sidelined me for most of the early stages of 2008. With the help of Mike and his incredible ART skills we were able to eliminate the grip this injury had on me by July. Mike not only has an exceptional knowledge base, but also has a sincere interest in your speedy recovery and in assisting you in achieving your athletic goals. I will continue to recommend him to my athletes for results come from his hands, mind, and heart."
