I have been struggling with Migraines for many years , taking an assortment of medications from my neurologist and had tried everything out there with no success. Recently I was referred to Micaela for TMJ Physio. After 2 sessions I started to notice a difference. I have now been for about 10 sessions and my migraines have gone down from 18 a month to Two a month! I am also off all my medication . Besides the results, I love going to Micaela as she has a very wholistic approach. She’s very professional, kind , profoundly knowledgeable and goes beyond in patient care. I have referred many people to her since! Am beyond relieved and grateful for her assistance.
Micaela, just to thank you so sincerely for ‘fixing’ my back, after years of pain and discomfort. I was told that I definitely needed back surgery but I now have no pain thanks to you. If you ever give up physio therapy, join the Ferrari Formula 1 team. With you fixing their cars they’d win every race. My thanks once again
Her physical strength, professionalism, knowledge, practical experience, her willingness and genuine concern all combine to make Micaela Gruzin the physiotherapist your body (and mind) want. I have already recommended her to all of my friends who have thanked me enormously.
