What Our Customers say
I met Mike at the Holistic Health and Spiritual Expo in Crystal Lake on January 12, 2019. In just a short 5 minute session with Mike doing Auricular Therapy on my ears and some points on my neck and head with his Microcurrent Point Stimulation Technology I felt like a different person. Three years ago I suffered a concussion and whiplash from being rear ended in a car accident. I spent over a year undergoing test and treatments and as a result experienced significant improvements but hadn’t completely healed. Enter Mike Lim….After 3 sessions with Mike, the headaches, sensitivity to sound, trouble falling asleep, difficulty focusing and being able to get things done, concentrating and remembering were gone. My whole demeanor shifted and now I go to bed, wake up and spend my day feeling peaceful and happy for no reason. Mike is extremely knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, talented, and genuinely cares about his clients. I highly recommend his services, you will not be disappointed. THANK YOU MIKE!!!!! Karen
For 20+ year I had mid back pain. I was told it was bone on bone. two visits to see Mike and I was pain free and have been for about 2 months now.
Mike was able to fit me into his busy schedule as I was passing through the area. He came highly recommended to me and delivered! I will see him again next time I am in town.
Mike Lim is very dedicated to your health and well being. He has helped me when my fibromyalgia has been at its worst and also treats my back pain. I highly recommend the treatment and Mike.
Amazing results for something I thought was my new normal. Foggy, disorganized and overall feelings of agitation are gone! I slept great last night and feel clear headed today. Happy happy happy! Thank you!
very friendly and guides you through the process to help you understand better. worked great after I threw my back out and wasn't able to stand up straight. went to the chiropractor twice and a massage therapist once and nothing fixed me like this treatment did. great job. thank you
I'm 57 yrs old & a pain pt since 1987. I've a plethora of pain challenges and sought help from Chicago to NH incl experts at Boston's Mass General, but none of these doctors, clinics, PT's, OT's, pain pills or homeopathy has been able to do what Mike Lim has accomplished in mere minutes, literally! All my rheumatoid arthritis symtoms disappeared in under 3 minutes. Muscle spasms disapated just as fast and my anxiety (PTSD) is finally under control. I no longer need all these narcotics & benzo's that were once my life line. We call him "Miracle Mike," not just because of his awesome treatments, he is also very intuitive, kind and caring. He treats the whole person, not just the pain issue. I wholeheartedly recommend this man for whatever your challenge is.
It's the best, most effective and healthy way to relieve pain! Dr. Mike is great !!
I went to see Mike for neck and shoulder pain that I had been suffering with for years. After one session I felt like a different person, physically and mentally. My pain and stress level felt substantially better. All I can say is Wow! Mike is a sincere, caring, highly educated professional. I highly recommend anyone suffering from pain and or stress schedule an appointment today!
Awesome Awesome and Awesome Thank you for taking so much time with my husband and thank you for your patience
I've worked with many energy medicine doctors and Mike is the best. His teachers heart and longing for people to get well puts him into a category all his own. He gave me a wonderful exercise, suggestions for maintaining sound posture, information about why certain problems are coming up, and how what he does allows the body to function better. All my multiple health issues improved after one visit as well as digestion, eyesight, taste, height, calmness, ability to think clearly, and more. A nice side benefit is that my other therapies, vitamin, essential oils, Bach flower, homeopathic, and herbs seem to work better. My body seems more unified and working together. I'm so thankful to have found him, and so close by.
Huge thank you! A little over two months ago I lost hope and I called to get an appointment. I was going through a hard time in life and he worked with me and got me in quickly! Now two months later I’ve only had two cluster headaches! ( was having 7 a month! ) I’m very blessed and highly Recommend especially if you have a c section and get migraines or cluster headaches!! I never even knew my c section played a roll in any of my neck pain and headaches!
I came to Mike with a very locked up and tight back. The pain kept me awake most nights and my Chiro was unable to keep my back in alignment. After 1 treatment with Mike and my back unlocked and I am pain free. Now my alignment stays and I sleep better.
I have been battling neck pain on my right side for around 7 months. After one treatment I would say at least 75% of my pain is gone. Will definitely try it again soon.
I went to see Mike twice. The first time I noticed right away a difference but he did advise me because of my symptoms that I would need to see him a 2nd time. I saw him a 2nd and I feel 80% better than I did before. I even recommended my LO to try him. One of which came from Michigan to get one of his treatment.
I have worked with Mike for many years and he is a respected therapist in my eyes . After years of chronic lower back injury , bouts of ER visits and pain relief , Mike finally convinced me to try DC Micro Current Technology . I have to say, I am very guarded when it comes to my back . I decided to try and WOW ! With his fantastic knowledge of the spine , discs and nerve points , he was really , I mean REALLY able to minimize my pain . After the session , I immediately noticed in my walk , my movements etc and I wasn’t as guarded . I definitely recommend this form of pain management and will be utilizing moving forward . Mike, thank you for convincing me and spending quality time with me !
On Dec 1st 2017 my son was in a bus accident he got a concussion we see 3 drs keep giving him med he has missed a lot of school with headaches Dizziness memory loss and so much more. We started coming to see Mike in March we have had 3 Sessions with him JJ is getting less and less headaches and less dizziness he is going to school more and more. Thanks to Mike I'm getting my son back. For anyone with problems I would 100% let Mike help u wont be Disappointed at all... if u have any questions please feel free to message me. Their is so much more I could tell u about are Experience...
My pain is almost gone after the first consultation. I had pain on my elbow for 4 weeks and now I feel much better. Mike is great at explaining the reasons behind your pain. Very easy procedure. I will follow up with another appointment.
I just had a session with Mike and I am very impressed with the immediate difference in my level of pain. I could hardly walk and was in acute distress before our session. Mike explained that my pain issues were due to my numerous surgeries. After one session, I could walk straighter and with a lot less difficulty. I highly recommend Mike and his work if you are experiencing chronic and/or acute pain that has previously been unresolved.
I visited Advance Pain Rehab due to Tennis elbow problem. First thing I was told was that my c-section scar was affecting my back, and this was reflected on my elbow and arm, after the first session with Mike I could feel my back relax and the tension and pain on my elbow gone, I couldn’t believe it! I strongly recommend this therapy...
I’m pre-menopause and I used to wake up every night several times drenched in sweat and opening the window in the middle of the night even in the winter. After getting treated by Dr. Mike the results I have to say are amazing!After a couple days I stopped sweating as much. It’s been a few weeks now and I sleep though the night and I don’t have the hot flashes anymore. I can’t take hormones so this is so much better than taking pills of any kind. So if you are having PMS go see Dr. Mike and feel normal again!! He has also treated both my kids for sports injuries and they can’t believe how much better they feel.
Mike does a great job. After seeing a chiropractor for many many years, I was looking for another option, as the chiropractor wasn't helping that much anymore. Mike worked on my back, and neck, and after one session I felt so much better. My muscles are more relaxed, my tension headaches are non-existent. I've had about 4 sessions total and each one I leave feeling better and better. He's also done work on a knee to help with movement after ACL surgery and it feels great. I couldn't kneel on my knee before I saw Mike and afterwards I can kneel and go about my yard work just like before surgery!! That's after one session. I highly recommend Mike and Advanced Pain Rehab.
I suffer from Ankelosing Spondilidis. Plus I have lower back pain brought on by the replacement of both of my knees. After 3 weeks of running in circles due to excruciating back pain I was enlightened by a very thoughtful lady from our Parrish who gave me one of your flyers and I was taken In for your treatment. One started the ball rolling, however did not last too long. That was Thursday of last week. I returned for an hour and a half session on Saturday and got the whole spine and hip treatment which lasted till late afternoon. The pain or should I say the aching returned. I then contacted Mike and got special instruction on how to clear the discomfort. This procedure is the only one which has given me any relief to date. I know I have a way to go from here but at least it is a valuable alternative to other procedures which only offer stretching, drugs and very little results. Thanks Dr. Mike and Terry
I’ve been suffering from migraines for years. They were so bad to the point I would be out of commission for days. My friend (Toni) referred me to Mike and I’m so ever grateful. After my first visit with Mike, I could not believe the difference in the way I felt just by using the MPS approach. My migraines are at bay. This guy knows his stuff, is very knowledgeable and I highly recommend him hands down.
I’ve always had chronic back pain from my years of roofing when I was a wee bit younger and just recently I turned 30 and had a small incident where a friend jumped on my back and did a pretty number on my back and I was in an extreme amount of pain to where it was unbearable to even sleep and I had to miss a whole week of work bc of it. I told mike who does physical therapy for my grandma and he did a few small procedures to loosen up my back. It helped tremendously and can’t thank him enough! I highly recommend him if your dealing with any sort of body pain.
I’ve been dealing with a bad tennis elbow since November, I have tried acupuncture, muscle activation technique and other modalities and nothing seems to calm it down effectively. Then a friend of mine (Tony ) recommended to try Mike’s treatment approach with MPS, so I did. I didn’t realize that my c section scar was the cause of the stiffness and pain to my back and neck that resulted to my elbow weakness. So After the first treatment , the elbow felt better and relieved and I am glad to have done the treatment. Try it because you won’t regret it for it works . Thanks mike
Got my second concussion in two weeks about a week ago. Was feeling very weak and like I was walking on a cloud not very down to Earth. After one appointment Mr. Lim made me feel almost completely normal, I didn’t feel weak anymore And i could actually feel myself walking again without a cloud over my brain. He also helped with my back and made that feel great as well. 10/10 recommend it.
Mike is an amazing healer. In a few minutes he identified a back issue that has caused hip issues. He was able to relax my back and hips in minutes. I highly recommend Mike Lim.
Mike is very instrumental in changing my perspective on how to treat my own patients suffering from pain and other issues; he enlightened me on how our body can heal itself. He asked me to attend a special course in Canada, that opened my mind to a new dimension of patient care. As a trained physical therapist myself, I was blown away by the overwhelming wealth of science and Eastern practices that can change an individual's overall health. I wish I have known these methods earlier in my practice as a PT. I've been suffering pain in many parts of my body due to lifting patients as part of my job as a physical therapist, playing sports and motorcycle crashes. I'm always skeptical in everything new to me. But during the 2-day conference in Toronto, Canada, I got treated for less than 5 minutes in front of the whole class and the most stubborn pain in my right shoulder that I've been suffering on and off since I was in high school was gone. I got 100% pain relief after less than 5 minutes of treatment. Even other participants in the conference were also able to get rid of their pains at least 80% instantly. We all walked out of that conference as living testaments that Mike's methods work.
My daughter has A.D.D., and was having issues with anxiety. She saw Mike for a 4 week series of treatments and has had significant improvement in her ability to relax, cope with stress and recover. After the first treatment, she said it was the first time in her life that she felt like her head was 'above water' and that everything was crystal clear. She has been better able to focus at school and is much calmer in general. I was so impressed with her results, I decided to have Mike treat me for pain and general tension. My results were amazing as well. He treated a large sugical scar that had gotten very hard and uncomfortable, and now its as soft as the rest of my skin! He also treated some discomfort I had in my shoulder and neck that was causing tingling sensation in my hand, and the tingling completely disappeared. Mike is great and I highly recommend his services.
I came across Mike in a TBI Facebook group and he offered to talk to me over the phone to answer any questions I had about his techniques and tools. He understands the body and deserves to stand among the most successful Manual Osteopaths, Acupuncturists, Feldenkrais practitioners and old school hands-on Chiropractors. When I heal from my latest TBI I plan on looking to help them grow their business and help more and more people.
Advanced Pain Rehab was utterly transformative for me. After two 90 minute sessions with Mike, in which he covered post concussion protocol and worked on my severe scoliosis and the associated structural problems, I have made more progress than years of massage, chiropractic and exercise alone. Mike's mastery of MPS and body mechanics, along with his approach that was both patient and persistent made me feel very at ease and confident. Both my mental and physical state were improved drastically, and most notably, my over focused anxiety has severely decreased. The results following the MPS treatment were immediate and I am still feeling continued improvement almost a week and two plane rides later. Thank you, Mike, for this chance to "reset"!
20yrs of aches and pains wiped away with one treatment. Strongly recommend Mr. Lim.
OMG. Mike is incredible. Today he worked on all my scars to alleviate the pain that I have been living with for many many years. I am hooked and will definitely be his regular for I had a horrible accident in January and insist on getting rid of acute pain but stop taking pain medicine as well and no longer receive shots to the back and knee. The shots are more painful then the pain and it's basically a temporary band aid. Mike has a completely and totally non evasive procedure that he uses and you will walk out of his office pain free and euphoric. Get your appointment asap folks
Michael helped with the last piece of my healing by helping my scar to release OMG 2.
My fiancé had been suffering awful PCS (post concussion syndrome) symptoms for the better part of three months before we met Mike Lim. The pain, the dizziness, the sensitivity to light was so bad he'd basically become a prisoner in his own home. The severity of his symptoms, along with the lack of urgency from doctors we'd originally been referred to, kept my fiancé in a holding pattern of misery...safely tucked away in a dark bedroom for the better part of his days. After a brief conversation with Mike, I had become optimistic. He gave me phone numbers of previous clients, and I called them for personal testimony. These clients did nothing but sing his praises. At this point, my fiancé was so frustrated he said he'd try anything. Symptoms showed improvement in the very FIRST session! My fiancé could actually walk around the house WITHOUT wearing sunglasses (for light sensitivity)! My fiancé is a die-hard skeptic about many things. Ask him about his experiences with Mike however, and he'll say nothing but good things about how this man helped him get SO much closer to 'normal' in such a brief period of time. Conventional doctors have not given him even HALF that much relief in three months! Thanks Mike. Keep doing what you do. Anyone who suffers substantial pain will be better off after seeing him.
I had an excellent experience in one visit with Mike. He took care of my scars first that opened blockages. Then he loosened the tightness of my entire spine which helped my neck, back and shoulders. He is very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend him.
I have been suffering from back pain and was in pain when I arrived at my appointment. After my treatment I have no back pain.
I would highly recommend Mike Lim for acupuncture. He is very well educated in anatomy and physiology and knows how the nervous system affects general well being. If you have tried the various modalities for back pain and aren't getting any relief, try Mike who is also a trained physical therapist. .
I just had my 1st session with Mike and it was transformational! If you are experiencing pain or physical ailments of any kind I highly suggest making an appointment immediately! If you have tried everything and nothing is working the healing modalities that he incorporates are the most unique and effective that I have seen.
After my mom had surgery on her knee for melanoma she was left with a 6 inch scar and tight, limited movement. After one session releasing that scar her mobility is so much improved! Her scar looks much less red and swollen!
I went to Advanced Pain Rehab today since my last surgery 1 month ago today did nothing for me(plus another surgery last year). I was at my last resort. Nothing has helped in years with the numbness and pain but this guy.... I'm in tears.... Mike Lim did one treatment and I'm 110% perfect like nothing ever happened.
I found advanced pain and rehab when I had to find a place to go after a bad fall. I emailed Michael and he very quickly responded and we setup a visit. He immediately made me feel comfortable explaining why I was having the pains and what he was going to do to help them. Throughout my visit I felt less in pain, but the day after I am able to function without limiting myself because of the pain. Thank you very much!
Other than recurring back tightness from scoliosis, I didn't think I had any problems. Mike zeroed in on my caesarean scar and explained all the blockage an old scar can cause. He explained everything he did and what it would help, and I feel completely loose, like I never have before. Didn't know I was so uptight! He is completely professional and I am recommending my daughter come into to see him with her ACL scar. Actually, I recommend Everyone give him an opportunity to free you up!
My husband went from a nonbeliever to believer with the therapy he received from Mike Lim. Mike's treatment and exercises were designed to strengthen his lower back. The pain has subsided greatly and we are thrilled to know Mike Lim!!
This guy is a miracle. I work in the same building as Michael and I was struggling with tightness in my hamstrings and calves it was like restless leg syndrome, it was awful. It came out of nowhere I was in so much pain! Michael saw me in the hallway and saw how I was in pain. Asked me to give him 5 minutes. He instantly took the tightness and pain away! I couldn’t believe it. I ended up making an appointment for the following day. Michael has so much knowledge and explained everything so well. I never realized how connected the muscle are! I am a pure believer of his practice. I swear that Michael was a god sent to me! I am now going to make another appointment to handle my anxiety. Thank you again Michael!
I wasn't sure how it was going to work with my knee being as screwed up as it was but after my session and 10 days later, my mobility is amazing and the pain is 90% gone. I am so thankful that a friend had recommend this and I would strongly suggest to anyone in any type of pain to go and see Advanced pain, it will be well worth it.
I just wanted to give a shout out to Mike Lim. Last week he worked on a scar I had from surgery. Since surgery I have had pain where the scar is and it has been very sensitive to the touch. Mike did one session on it and the pain is 99% gone. I would have done this a year ago if I would have known that the discomfort could go away so quickly.
Advanced Pain Rehab addressed many issues I didn't even know existed. As someone looking to provide alternatives to clients, I focused my attention to Advanced Pain Rehab, I needed to learn all about what they had to offer. In a world filled with prescriptions and medical "cover-ups", I'm always on the hunt to correct problems before they become a problem. Advanced Pain Rehab did just that. I initially came into my apt extremely stressed and flustered; Mike was able to calm my whole system and I instantly felt relief in my lower back (which I didn't even realize was bothering me). For someone looking to prevent Pain or address current Pain, I'd highly recommend Mike. He is extremely professional and explains everything and how your body is so interconnected at every step.
Mike did an excellent job alleviating my sciatic pain. He was able to reduce my pain levels to better than 80 %. I was skeptical about his guarantee, but found out otherwise after his treatment. A definite fusion of western and eastern medicines. He took time to treat scarring from hip, knee and shoulder replacements and showed true concern to improve my health. I highly recommend trying treatment to reduce your pain
Before i went in i was tired and really exhausted and i gotten a concussion but after i got done it felt as if i havent experienced a concussion and i felt as if i had alot more energy and i was loose and i felt good so i highly recommend if you have experienced or had a concussion
I have had surgery on both of my knees. Even after the surgery, I've had problems, and at times, could barely walk. I would wake up with this pain every morning. After seeing Dr Mike for just one session, the pain is gone! I would def. recommend Dr Mike for your injuries. All doctors want to do is pump you up with drugs. Thank you so very much!!
I was referred to Mike Lim at Advanced Pain Rehab in Crystal from a good friend at the gym I go to. I fell 2 weeks ago on ice while holding my granddaughter, doing the splits and landing on my leg and side. I went to the ER, where they xrayed my leg and hip. No broken bones, but a pulled hamstring. Sent me home with pain meds. Went back in to ER because not much had changed, and I was still in a lot of pain. They checked for a blood clot, which was negative. Again sent me home with pain meds, and told me to call their office for a referral to an orthopedic doctor for PT. I decided to try going to see Mike first. He was willing to get me in to see him today, so I set up the appointment. I was not disappointed. I was very impressed by the techniques Mike used to help relieve my stress and my pain. It's great to find someone that is genuinely concerned about me and my health and wellness. I definitely will be recommending Mike Lim to people that need help with their pain and/or other medical issues.
Mike has a vast knowledge of physiology and anatomy. He knows what he is doing. I am a Licensed massage therapist and I am impressed with his work when I had a session with him. Thank you Mike.
5 star rating for Mike. He has been a God sent for my Mom in her rehab. As she progressed I thought he had something special. Having a Nursing background I decided to take advantage of his expertise. Have been nothing but impressed. Mike is amazing and dedicated. I hope you give him a try. I feel amazing after 2 sessions with him.
I had severe back, leg, foot and face nerve pain from an allergic reaction to nasal spray. After 6 MRIs, a CT Scan, an EKG, a chest xray a visit to the ER and a Neurologist my doctors still had no idea what was wrong with me. After a month of constant pain and 6 physical therapy visits I was referred to Michael Kim by a friend. I called late on a Saturday and Michael was at my house for a house call at 8am on Monday. Within 45 mins I was COMPLETELY pain free. That was 3 days ago and I'm still pain free. I can't explain how he did it. I just find it amazing that no one else in "modern medicine" could help me even after all the tests, therapies and money. Michael fixed in me less than an hour and for less than the price of one physical therapy visit. Thanks Michael!!!
This is an amazing form of pain relief. I experienced pain And anxiety from my neck down to my feet. Mike cured my pain instantly. Thanks for coming into my life. Highly recommend
My husband had a horrible pain in his leg and calf all week. I told him to go to see Mike Lim. After the miracle man did his magic Fred could walk and sit with little to no pain. Thank u Mike Lim. He also has vertigo and Mike Lim did some maneuvers and hopefully Fred sees no more episodes , for they are debilitating. Thank u and if someone has pain I would say go to see Mike Lim he is truly awesome.
Thank you, Mike, for the treatment! I've had this left shoulder pain for months and could barely lift a pitcher of water because of it. After the treatment, not only was I able to raise my left arm, the strength in my arm is slowly coming back that I could lift that pitcher of water. More power to you!😊
Thank you mike for coming over. I felt so good right after.this time i feel so relaxed! MPS therapy is 👍
