Good first visit

The whole experience was great.

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.

Awesome

Lawrence is a consummate professional. I appreciate his work.

I have been running for over 35 years and experienced various issues and stresses related to my general aging and weaknesses in body mechanics. Lawrence is knowledgeable, professional, extremely competent and successfully gets me back 'on the road'! I would highly recommend Lawrence for all sports-related injuries and issues.

Lawrence is very good at actually LISTENING to what the problem is and then getting to the right spot. I have been sore immediately after he works on me, but that dissipates and then AHHH.

This was my first visit with Lawrence. I'm hoping he can help with my bursitis and sciatica. He's very knowledgeable and professional. In addition to the massage, he gave me a few exercises to do at home and some helpful advice. It was a very positive experience.

I have been going to Lawrence for years and he has kept track of my various issues and concerns and how my body has responded to various modalities. As a result, he is able to take the most helpful approaches to address these issues. I am so grateful for him and his work! Thank you Lawrence!
