REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

My experience with Lawrence was amazing! I've had many massages over the years, and this was one of the best I've had. I was impressed by the skill exhibited, and the fluidity overall. I have done manual labor for over 20 years, and need deeper massage work to feel any relief. I feel better today than I have in months! Thank you, Lawrence!

I’m not generally comfortable with massage because I’m an assault survivor, but I was in a lot of pain and desperate. Lawrence was completely wonderful. Very empathetic and knowledgeable. He must have brought my pain down by about 80% on this visit, and I left feeling much more at ease. Will definitely return.

If you are looking for a therapeutic massage to help with an injury this is your place. I left relaxed, but more importantly; I left with a certainty that I will be able to exercise again soon.
