I never had a massage before and frankly I did not think I would be comfortable with this approach. I mentioned my situation to a co-worker and she recommended a Medical Massage Therapist by the name of Mike Krizek.After my initial visit with Massage therapist Mike Krizek, he took extra time with me and made me feel very comfortable about having a massage session. He was very detailed and professional. Since several visits , I have been able to stop taking stress medicati…
When I first met Mike Krizek I was not sure how he would react to the comments I wrote on his client intake form. I hurt all overâ€. I have Fibromyalgia.With a great sense of confidence he looked up at me and said I have worked with this condition before, lets get started. I enjoyed my first session immediately. I noticed right away during this session with him, that he was acutely aware of the pain that this condition can bring to the various parts of my body. He introduced m…
I was introduced to Medical Massage Therapist , Mike Krizek, though a friend. My legs and lower back were constantly sore and I needed better range of motion. Mike performed several Massage Cupping sessions on my legs and lower back. The effects of these treatments were so dramatic that I was amazed about how good I felt right after my series of treatments.After my next race, I immediately noticed I was not in pain and that my performance had greatly improved. I continue to see Mike Kr…
I am amazed that I am able to sit at the computer and write this because 5 days ago I could not sit or stand for more than 3-5 minutes without debilitating pain that took me straight to bed.I highly recommend this treatment for anyone who has had a recent injury, a long-standing injury with the accompanying scar tissue and tightness, postural problems, and generalized muscle and joint pain. It has to be released and by a Massage Cupping™ trained practitioner.
I highly recommend Mike Krizek, LMMT, to anyone who wants skill and competence above and beyond your highest standards for massage. Mike does Medical Massage and I knew him first as a friend and business colleague. I was impressed with his passion for what he does, and I began seeing him for neck and back pain. His treatments were always exceptionally effective for relaxation and pain elimination.
I met Mike Krizek, Medical Massage Therapist, from a friend who had a similar issues and Mike was able to help him. Mike Krizek, started a treatment program where he incorporated the use of vacuum cups which he used on my hands and arms.He explained that through repetitive motion of using the scissors in my right and left hand, the tissue had tightened and compressed the nerves and vessels in my hands. After several treatments the Massage Cupping/ MediCupping session were able to o…
A good friend of mine recommended Mike Krizek, Medical Massage Therapist. When I first met Mike Krizek I knew he was different. He takes a very analytical approach to his treatments. I filled out a very detailed client intake form he gave me. We also spent a good amount of time discussing my problem and what he felt would be a good treatment plan approach. He is extremely thorough.Within my first few sessions, my pain and numbness had subsided. Amazing! Mike Krizek is truly a gifted Me…
I am so happy I took the road least traveled. Immediately after my first series of treatments with the MediCupping™ & Massage Cupping™ procedures, my pain was diminishing. As my treatments continued from Mike Krizek, I also was gaining more and more range of motion and the intermittent numbness I use to have disappeared.
It was great to see you June 19 2009. It has been my serendipitous good fortune to have met you via our visits to Asheville. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and wisdom regarding the best approaches for me to take to resolve my Neuromuscular and lymphatic issues. I look forward to seeing you sometime in the future. Be healthy and well.
At that time, the only Medical Massage therapist listed was Mike Krizek. What a find! He is an extremely talented therapist. I see him on a regular basis and the difference he has made in my life has been immeasurable. He is patient and he takes the time to explain his approach to your condition. I can only say that if you are extreme pain or have chronic conditions that nothing you are currently doing seems to work. Make an appointment with Mike Krizek LMBT , I highly recommend him.
