Our Commitment


For Michael Lim, serving patients at Advanced Pain Rehab isn’t just a job – it’s a passion. He has been committed to helping others for most of his professional career. Before he was a Master Pain Practitioner, working with Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS), Michael worked as a Physical Therapist in multiple settings. As he used exercise and movement to help patients, he became frustrated that he could not always alleviate the chronic pain that accompanied many of the patients he treated.

As soon as he began studying MPS, Michael knew that he held the key to better quality of life for his patients. Through MPS treatment protocols, Michael works with patients at Advanced Pain Rehab who live with chronic pain due to medical conditions such as arthritis, autoimmune diseases, concussions, or scars from past surgeries. Using this quick and painless treatment, Michael has been able to guarantee pain relief up to 80% for everyone who has walked through his clinic door.


Michael knows that his patients feel better the more that Michael studies his craft. After he left his Physical Therapy role to become a Master Pain Practitioner full time, Michael became one of the best in the MPS therapy industry. Now, he uses his experience and knowledge to teach other practitioners throughout the country the MPS treatment protocols.
His drive and motivation is to continually treat people with respect and get the patients issues resolved in the shortest amount of time possible. Most of Mikes approach has been getting the job one and done(90% of the time) and sometimes he might recommend a second another session to clear chronic issues especially for concessions and other chronic illness.


Upon meeting Michael, patients are immediately impressed with his genuine desire to help them feel better. It is that commitment to patient experience that keeps patients seeking Michael’s assistance and expertise. When you call for a consultation, you can expect to be greeted promptly – and personally – by Michael. He will get to know more about you and your medical history, using that information to give you the best treatment possible. In under two hours, you can exit the practice feeling a significant decrease in your pain or symptoms than what you came in.


Meeting Michael and having MPS treatment in the Advanced Pain Rehab clinic can be a life changing experience. They will explain what has been going on, why are your symptoms showing up this way and what can be done to stop that chronic cycle of pain.

Don’t miss out on the quality of life that you have wanted for so long – let us come alongside you to give you the best shot at wellness and living pain free.

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!

So, I went to see my good friend Mike Lim, who is a practicing Physical Therapist and a Microcurrent Point Stimulation (MPS) Therapy Specialist. In one session, Mike helped me release scars from surgeries I endured in childhood up to the present time, to help induce healing and nervous system flow. I felt my pains, burdens and anxieties lift almost instantaneously! He even helped me with my bout of IBS, and other abdominal issues. He also added emotional, grief, sadness & sorrow healing. Now, I'm all for health and well being, and this treatment will definitely be a regular part of my self care. It should be yours too!!!!! Thanks so Much Mike!!!!! Until next time!

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!
