Mike has an extensive background in physical therapy with a speciality in manual therapy. He is certified by the Jones Institute in the Osteopathic technique of Strain-Counterstrain, which is a technique used to decrease pain and dysfunction within the body. He is also an advanced myofascial release practitioner with over 10 years experience. Mike teaches Strain-Counterstrain in many of the local universities including Chapman University, La Verne University and Azuza Pacific University.

“My specialty is manual therapy. I am certified in a highly specialized technique known as strain/counterstrain. There are very few certified practitioners around (an estimated 100 practitioners nationwide), which makes it an exclusive club. I tend to get involved with patients who have complicated, hard-to-treat conditions and complex spinal issues. I enjoy helping people get better and helping them change their lives.”
