Lawrence was absolutely amazing. The best massage I have ever had. He was so efficient that one hour felt like two. He targeted my areas of concern immediately. He relaxed me so quickly, which made the deep tissue work more effective. I felt completely comfortable and enjoyed every minute of his work. He helped decrease pain from an auto accident, and in the process it decreased years worth of tension. I am looking forward to continuing more healing experiences with him. Thank you infinitely, Lawrence!

I came in with knee issues (runner) and he focused on that knee for most of the session, ABSOLUTELY wonderful!!! Came back a couple of weeks later for another session, ran 13 miles two days later with no issues what so ever!!! Definitely understands how the body works and things are connected!

Lawrence is amazing - I have had a persistent muscle issue in my left thigh and neither visits to an MD nor a physical therapist were able to identify correctly the source of the problem and apply practical work to not only start to relieve the pain and tension but also enable me to see how I can adjust ways I sit and walk to stop aggravating the situation now and prevent a relapse down the road. I would highly reccommend Asheville Therapeutic Massage.

Lawrence was exceptional. He was as tuned into the body as anyone could be! Operating almost auto-pilot, he got to the root of my soreness immediately and the entire experience was a pleasure. His understanding of muscles was immense, and even taught me exercises to do to keep my muscles loose. If you're looking for healing combined with total salvation massage, Lawrence is your man!

Lawrence really knows how to create an artful blend of mind-body relaxation with voice and touch. His level of skill and knowledge are evident in his techniques to release chronic tightness, encouraging the tissues that have held tension for long periods to let go. He is very attuned to how much depth and pressure are appropriate to achieve lasting results. I feel confident recommending anyone to him knowing they would be in very capable hands.

The other day I went into my massage full of bound up energy that had been accumulating for months. I hadn't seen him for some time and I was missing his healing. When I returned to work it was obvious to my employees that a shift had occurred. Lawrence is extremely consistent in his delivery of excellence and masterful of his profession. And he is just that, professional and in tune with my spirit and humanity. You will always encounter a calm, engaged, and productive wizard of healing. Period!

Thank you! You are doing exactly what I need - and I already feel MUCH better! I knew a dancer would have a deep understanding of the body and how the muscles interact. Master bodywork is a great title! MUCH better than going to a medical doctor.

Lawrence knows the body and how it works, and has always been able to address specific problems with skill and immediacy. He has been able to improve or eliminate serious chronic problems associated with my age and life experience, and though I was once something of a massage skeptic, I wouldn't hesitate to call what he does with his hands "medicine."

Lawrence is always attentive to what my body needs. He asks what is going on with my body (and my life!) before each massage so he can customize his work. And he checks in during the massage to make sure all is ok. These are reasons why I continue to go back to him.
