  • “I… Felt No Overall Relief Until Now”



    In April of 2009 I had a very bad car accident where I needed Heart Surgery. My body nearly doubled in size from water/fluid retention to where I have very uncomfortable Edema from head to toe. My neck has two slipped discs and one compressed and it causes numbness and severe muscle spasms on my left side in my upper back area.

    I have seen every doctor imaginable for the past couple of years and on numerous medications for every ailment but still felt no overall relief until now. I now fully believe in acupuncture and the TrapEAZE Technique™ and could not imagine my life without Justin’s treatments. 

    I go in and have all the above symptoms and when I get up I feel like a totally different person. I feel less pain and a highly increased overall sense of well-being. Thank you Justin 🙂

  • “This Is A MUST TRY Treament If You Want To Get Your Life Back”



    I’m writing this testimonial to let others know that there is hope to relieve your pain. I never thought this treatment would give such fabulous results, it has and I am very grateful.

    After the car accident, I was in therapy 3-6 days/week, for over 6 months. The pain, at best, would mildly subside, however, the relief was minimal and temporary.

    I was approached by Justin and he offered a treatment modality that I have never heard of and was of course skeptical of any lasting effects. At the same time I was being worked up for a more invasive treatment that would require anesthesia- which I was hesitant and apprehensive about: It is called MUA, Manipulation Under Anesthesia.

    I agreed to go along with Justins plan of therapy and only after a few treatments, to my surprise, the gnawing, crippling pain in my neck and shoulder ceased.

    I was still not sure this was permanent & I’m still a bit wary, however, its been a few months now and I am no longer in agony.

    I am in nursing administration and have long days and since the accident, everyday by 3pm, the pain in my neck & shoulder would radiate to my head and the pain was excruciating, nothing would take it away until I started this treatment and now if I get any pain, it is short lived and I can completely recover.

    The actual procedure is minimally painful- compared to the constant agony I was in 24/7.

    I have other injuries from this accident that has created pain in other areas of my body for which I will be getting this treatment to as well.

    I was really shocked that this actually worked and wish that more practitioners were aware of this technique so that they could help relieve the very many people suffering. No needles, no medication, no long drawn out therapies, no anesthesia and no surgery; this is a must try treament if you want to get your life back.

    As a practicing Registered Nurse for over 30yrs, I will be sharing this wonderful break through technique with my colleagues.
  • “Hopelessness Was Restored To Hope And Impossible Became Possible”.



    To Whom It May Concern:

    My severe pain has lasted for 14 years. To begin with, if affected only my left arm so I consulted an orthopedic doctor. Over time my pain gradually became worse despite his treatment. My P.C.P. then referred me to a neurologist, but i experienced no significant improvement. The pain spread to my left shoulder and the left side of my neck. After several MRI’s and my neurologist I was correctly diagnosed.

    Due to an abnormality in a section of my spinal column, I suffer muscle spasm attacks which in turn causes severe pain. After suffering for so long I gave up a pain-free life. The my neurologist convinced me to try Justin Mandel’s TrapEAZE Technique™.

    Undergoing this treatment is the best gift that I could give myself. Hopelessness was restored to hope and impossible became possible. Thanks to Justin I got my life back while my treatment is continuing on a much reduced level.
  • In 2018, on the 25th of October, I was in a car accident. I had injuries on my leg, my chest, my back, and my neck. My legs had bruises on them and they hurt a lot, however, eventually the pain went away. The pain in my chest also went away with time.

    When I first went to physical therapy, they worked on my upper back mostly, which includes my shoulder and neck. They put the pads and the hot towels on my upper back and then would put a cream on. On a scale from 1 to 10, I had a pain of 4 in upper back in the beginning.

    Justin Mandel (LAC) did special treatments on my upper back. In the beginning he would just put the needles on my shoulder for acupuncture, but my pain wasn’t going away, so Mr. Mandel decided to do some special treatment on my upper back. He did this for about 3 treatments and after these three treatments I did not have any more pain in my upper back. In the beginning these treatments, it hurt a lot when Mr. Mandel worked on my shoulder, but after a while the pain started to go away.

    Now my upper back is pain free.
