REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

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!

Lawerence has excellent skills and knowledge of the human body. I would highly recommend him for anyone who is looking for some serious body work and not a fluff light rub!
