Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I liked that Lawrence concentrated on the area that was giving me the most grief and listened to my feedback instead of just doing a routine.

    The work was was focused and engaging. I felt like I was actively learning.

  • Lawrence was so attentive to my issues and EXTREMELY competent and professional! Looking forward to the next session

    Lawrence is very professional and extremely knowledgeable about the physical body and possible complications. And for a greater injury, he lays out a plan for recovery. Peaceful and nourishing.

  • Very focused, skilled work, zeroing in on problem areas. Thanks!

    Love the pressure and attention to detail. Also, a great sense of humor! Experience was good for the body, mind, and soul. Quite refreshing!

  • Had to wait a bit as Lawrence got held up elsewhere, but he still gave me a full hour and was absolutely amazing at locating my issue and alleviating some of the discomfort. Had my first uninterrupted night's sleep in over a month as I didn't feel the pain in my shoulder (at least it wasn't bad enough to wake me up). Looking forward to going back and making more progress!

    Great job thanks. Will certainly return when I am visiting Asheville area.

  • Hit the trouble spots very well. Was a little sore the next day, but have had long-term relief.

    Very relaxing and helped clear all my aches and pains.

Lawrence was absolutely amazing. The best massage I have ever had. He was so efficient that one hour felt like two. He targeted my areas of concern immediately. He relaxed me so quickly, which made the deep tissue work more effective. I felt completely comfortable and enjoyed every minute of his work. He helped decrease pain from an auto accident, and in the process it decreased years worth of tension. I am looking forward to continuing more healing experiences with him. Thank you infinitely, Lawrence!

Lawrence is amazing - I have had a persistent muscle issue in my left thigh and neither visits to an MD nor a physical therapist were able to identify correctly the source of the problem and apply practical work to not only start to relieve the pain and tension but also enable me to see how I can adjust ways I sit and walk to stop aggravating the situation now and prevent a relapse down the road. I would highly reccommend Asheville Therapeutic Massage.

Lawrence was exceptional. He was as tuned into the body as anyone could be! Operating almost auto-pilot, he got to the root of my soreness immediately and the entire experience was a pleasure. His understanding of muscles was immense, and even taught me exercises to do to keep my muscles loose. If you're looking for healing combined with total salvation massage, Lawrence is your man!
