Larry is super friendly and does a great job! Massage is a little different each time, but always relaxing, and at my age, great for limbering me up. Also, room is very inviting.

It was great. My neck feels better the day after and I look forward to the next session. I'm thankful for the suggested stretches to do at home as well. Impressed!

I've gotten many massages from Lawrence and they were all great! He's able to see what's going on with my body and give it what it needs, whether it's tough therapeutic massage or just relaxing and calming. Thanks Lawrence!
