Jana has a special talent of compassion, of listening and understanding the patient’s subtle imbalances both in the physiology of facial expressions and in his or her emotional state. Jana can also explain complex matters in an easy-to-understand language and in a well-structured manner.
Before joining Crystal Touch, Michael Lysoy already had an impressive record of helping patients with emotional and psychological issues while working within NHS structure in London, UK. His degree in psychology helps him to better understand and to properly address deep-rooted emotional imbalances and changes in self-esteem of our patients who are confronted with residuals and complications of long-standing Bell’s palsy as well as other types of facial palsies.
As a specialist of Crystal Touch clinic, Michael took an active part in our London seminar and workshop (October 2018) that had been organized to help Bell’s palsy patients from many countries to reduce residuals and complications of their long-standing disorder. Michael plays an important role in our Humanitarian project “Bring back your Smile!”. Together with the team, he travels the world to help long-standing Bell’s palsy patients who, due to financial constraints, cannot travel to Rotterdam for their rehabilitation programs. Within the scope of this project, in 2018 Michael worked with children and adults in Rotterdam (The Netherlands), Moscow (Russia), and in Zell am See (Austria).
In 2019 Michael will continue to expand his expertise in rehabilitation of our patients and will become a part of our scientific research unit.
