Arrived in HHI on November 3rd in the afternoon. Had read the reviews and felt compelled to make an appointment. I called and left a message. Later, I received a return phone call from Michael and was able to arrange an appointment. My experience was fantastic. It was professional, skilled and healing. Mike was clear and prompt about the business... More

For more than two years I have been suffering from severe back pain, nothing has helped for more than a few minutes or hours. I’ve had two very complicated back surgeries, 30 one an one sessions of aqua therapy, then approximately 20 one on one physical therapy sessions. I’ve tried every TENS machine on the market, all kinds of hot... More

I am an avid Crossfitter and distance runner - usually crossfit 4-5 days a week while running at least 15 miles. I rarely am satisfied with massage therapists, but Mike is the best. It was a 90 minute massage, and it got out all of the kinks. He is a crossfitter and distance runner as well, so understands the beating... More

Mike gave a great massage. He is an athlete himself so he is very familiar with the types of soreness that comes from overdoing it. He also had a degree in Exercise Science and is a CrossFit certified trainer, so he knows his stuff.

Mike was very knowledgeable, kind and professional. I had been doing a lot of intense working out and I went in for a deep tissue massage. He listened carefully to my concerns and offered advice on how to keep my muscles loose. The spa offered a very relaxing environment.....I'll definitely go back whenever I'm in town again. Next time I'll... More

After reading reviews, I decided to give Mike at Back in Balance a try and I am so glad I did. His mission statement says that they want to exceed expectations and I must say that he did exactly that! I asked him to work on some knots in my upper back and he gave me a excellent deep tissue...

I found Mike through a mutual friend - what a find! I have to deal with stenosis and arthritis and Mike has helped me feel so much better after only 1 or 2 massages. He is magic! I am now a regular client and will be for the foreseeable future. W

Hilton Head Island to me is one of the most peaceful and serene places. When I want go 'off the grid' there's no place I'd rather be. Although Hilton Head doesn't have many of the attractions and dining options I might get in my big city, it happens to have the BEST massage therapist I've ever encountered. Being an elementary...
