In the Welsh Valleys, where Mike grew up, bathing is said to cleanse the soul. Now, what started as small batches of sun dried sea salt and unique blends of essential oils has become just a little bit bigger.
The purpose of Mike’s Recovery is simple: to craft seriously natural, restorative products to promote physical and mental wellness.
After moving to the States in 2000, Mike studied massage therapy and began his career in the healing arts. He became a sports massage therapist and aromatherapy trainer at a prestigious AAA Five Diamond resort on the Las Vegas Strip. He spent 10 hours a day 4 days a week massaging clients. By the end of each day, Mike’s body was so stiff and tense he could barely move without incredible pain. There were many nights he was in such agony it would bring him to tears.
In his search for relief, Mike began experimenting with soaking in the tub to heal and regenerate his aching body. He would take baths using specific essential oils and record in his journal how they made him feel as well as how they affected his body physiologically. Some results were amazing – Frankincense made him feel elated. But others were not so wonderful – he burned himself soaking in a high concentration of orange oil.
With his aromatherapy expertise and some trial and error, Mike formulated blends of essential oils so carefully crafted that each oil built on the other’s strengths. He created fusions that could be used for very precise purposes. Using his own fusions of essential oil mineral soaks has empowered him physically to continue working for 16 years in an industry where the average burn out rate is 2 years.
