REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Don on Sep 27
In just 30 minutes, Lawrence relieved a particularly severe pain that had spread through the left side of my back. With a combination of artfully improvised moves and detailed anatomical knowledge (when necessary, described clearly while he was working on a particular area), the pain eased quite dramatically.

Has years of experience which contributes to a great massage and he listens and intuits what's going on with your body.

Lawrence is a highly skilled professional with a thorough command of his techniques.

Lawrence has a great, easygoing vibe and I was comfortable and eager to do what it would take to dig deep. We laughed and talked through the whole session - a first-rate experience.

Lawrence is very likable

I liked the way he communicated with me as he worked and how he was able to predict and analyze things about me just from working on me. It was great experience. Only thing I had a hard time with was finding the sign. Tree was blocking it but that’s not his fault. I could’ve researched the location better before.

I have usually had a female massage therapist, however, Larry put me at ease and was very professional and has an awesome personality. Very impressed with his knowledge and skill as I used to be a massage therapist! I made a another appt before leaving. -Kim S.
