“Great help with unexpected injury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

While visiting Hilton Head Island in July 2012, I experienced an unusual shoulder injury. I Googled massage, made a quick appointment, and was treated by a therapist who told me I was breathing wrong. Needless to say that wasn't the problem, and my pain persisted. While trying to stretch at a nearby gym, I asked some friendly locals who else might be able to help, and they told me about Mike Christensen.
My therapy with Mike was great. Throughout the massage, he explained what was probably causing the pain, how he was treating it, and afterwards, provided advice about continual care. Mike was beyond helpful and simply amazing--in fact, I am continuing to follow his instructions.
My experience at Back In Balance was excellent, and I recommend Mike Christensen without reservations.

“Excellent Therapy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

I am not a big massage fan but after suffering through some chroning shoulder pain I went to Mike for a "massage"- but what Mike does is more like therapy. Targeting both the bothersome area and the areas around it, Mike not only made the area feel much better but also explained to me what he was doing and why. It was a great experience and I plan on going back many times.

“Want to Train Harder and Longer?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

The first time I met Mike was while we were training at Crossfit. Being a fellow athlete he understood some of my flexibility challenges. He was able to target those areas successfully which led to my being able to exercise longer and harder.
Besides being very professional and knowledgeable Mike provides a very relaxing atmosphere.
Definitely recommend it!

“Total relaxation and rehabilitation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Mike is a fantastic massage therapist who knows how to assess the needs of the individual and treat them perfectly to not only relax the muscles but also fix ailments that may have seemed untreatable. I have had on and off back issues that have never been helped by any other massage therapist that have lasted months at times, but a single visit to Mike will alleviate the issue for quite some time. He is a great guy, very professional, and the best on the island.
