Lawrence is very professional and extremely knowledgeable about the physical body and possible complications. And for a greater injury, he lays out a plan for recovery. Peaceful and nourishing.

Love the pressure and attention to detail. Also, a great sense of humor! Experience was good for the body, mind, and soul. Quite refreshing!

Had to wait a bit as Lawrence got held up elsewhere, but he still gave me a full hour and was absolutely amazing at locating my issue and alleviating some of the discomfort. Had my first uninterrupted night's sleep in over a month as I didn't feel the pain in my shoulder (at least it wasn't bad enough to wake me up). Looking forward to going back and making more progress!

Hit the trouble spots very well. Was a little sore the next day, but have had long-term relief.
