Lawrence was very knowledgeable and even gave me some good advice on things I can do day to day to help my muscles feel better too! It was a great and relaxing experience.

Lawrence is extremely competent. He knew exactly how to release really tight muscles, relieve pain, and give advice on how to change my movements keep from tensing up again.

First of all, I have never experienced this level of body work. Clearly Lawrence has intuitive hands and has done an incredible amount of training. Secondly, his presence with me during the session never wavered. And lastly, there is comfort in the way that his office is presented. The ambiance was amazing. THANKS!

The back pain and stiff shoulder I arrived with were resolved. I asked Lawrence for suggestions to prevent re-injury. His recommendations were not only helpful, but delivered with a great blend of professionalism and humor!
