My name is Laz, a medical massage therapist. I had worked for 5 years in a chiropractor’s office where I treated over 1,000 patients a year with disc herniation, frozen shoulder, thoracic outlet syndrome, whiplash accident injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome lateral/medial epicondylitis and many more. I am also an experienced deep tissue, sport, Swedish, myofascial manipulation and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.



I have graduated from NOVA Medical Massage Therapy School where I studied anatomy, physiology and kinesiology for 5 years. I have done my extensive final case study about sciatic pain management and lumbar disc herniation. In addition to that I took a Registered Nurse course for 4 semesters at Germanna College, furthermore was an instructor of medical massage practical application, anatomy, pathology and patient assessment in Columbia College.



I have a great reputation from Washington, D.C. to Richmond, getting referrals from chiropractors, physical therapists, doctor’s offices and hospitals. I rehabilitate patients after an injury and those who suffer in chronic pain. I also improve the performance of athletes and prevent future injury.



I also have over 10 years of experience of training competitive athletes.

Laszlo is extremely knowledgeable in anatomy and physiology and will work out any muscular issues you may have.

Laszlo knows how to hit the trigger points that cause most of my pain. He is a true professional.

Las is amazing! He has helped me out numerous times over the years. He’s incredibly knowledgeable about the body. I have never had a better message.

See above comments. Also, the spa was so soothing, calm and clean. It was as nice as any upscale spa I’ve been to. I hope you don’t get too busy! Also, I felt your pricing was reasonable and therefore there is no reason to go to Old Town or any other place to get a massage. You get the same service and ambiance for a few dollars less, so it’s more likely that people will return on a regular basis.

Very skilled! Relieves pain in the long run for sure.
by Ellen on Sep 09
So knowledgeable! I love going and my shoulder is getting so much better. I am so glad to have finally tried them.
by Rosanne on Sep 06
Wow! What a difference thirty minutes with Las makes! I hobbled in with a muscular knee injury so painful I hadn't slept in two nights, and then walked out, upright and with not so much pain. I still have a lot ahead of me, including some home therapy that Las has directed, along with a few more sessions with him, but I know for the first time in months that recovery is possible, and without the drugs for pain that my well-meaning doc had prescribed and which hadn't done the trick and which I didn't want to be on long-term. Book an appointment with Las---feel much, much better! Thank you, Las!
