REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Anna on Oct 20
I appreciated that Lawrence really took the time to listen to my issue (frozen shoulder) and spent time not only on the massage, but also giving me ideas of ways I can help myself heal.

Lawrence listened to my concerns, focused on them as well as other areas that could use attention. Flexible in working areas.

Lawrence is a wonderful massage therapist - a generous and kind spirit, he's thoughtful, skilled, fun to work with and I always always always get results - whether it's a relaxation massage or deep work on my hips and lower back. Go see him!

Incredible body worker!
by Betsy on Aug 13
I was very happy, unlike any body work I’ve had before. Lawrence was very informative of everything he was doing and how he was trying to relieve my pain. He also recommended me to another therapist which may help me with a specific issue in the future. The day after I was very sore and still in pain, but figured my body was trying to heal itself. The following day was fantastic! I have not had an inkling of a headache and I am so happy with my results! I plan to schedule another session within the month. Thank you, Lawrence!

I've had many massages due to ongoing shoulder issues. Lawrence is terrific--very knowledgeable and he really zeroes in on the issues.

Lawrence's particular focus, knowledge and experience as it relates to bodies that are pushing athletic and dance "envelops" helps me as an athlete to know he is going to work on what needs attention. Very few people have his type experience and depth in body work so always a gift when I can fit into his schedule

One of the better massages I have ever had.

Lawrence used a different approach than I am used to and I believe that is a good thing. At my age, and with my lifestyle, it takes a whole team to keep me moving and I'm glad to add Lawrence to the roster.
