REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Laverna on Apr 09
Lawrence is very knowledgeable and was able to relieve a lot of pain in my shoulder. He also worked on my neck and I have had no neck pain or headache since my treatment. He also enlightened me re posture. Re Ambiance: I liked the music, but would have preferred instrumental only.

I think Lawrence had very good skills and some I’ve never experienced before with other massage therapists that really helped me out. I do find I have to be really clear on what I want done or he sometimes continues in other directions and miss things needing doing. I do really like his technique using cupping to quickly disperse problem tension areas on the back. Over all he is a good massage therapist.

Lawrence is knowledgeable and encourages clients to advocate for what they need. If you are uncomfortable with anything or would like a different technique, he encourages that. He is professional, welcoming, and was intentional about reading my intake form and asking me questions prior to the session. I got a lot of relief from him. He knows his stuff!

Lawrence is extremely knowledgeable and has helped me immensely. His skill level is evident as he is able to find and release trigger points causing me pain and loss of mobility. I highly recommended him!
