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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Aromatherapy services

Very knowledgeable and he did a wonderful job!
by Diann on Apr 19
This was my first ever experience with a medical massage. Laszlo knows his stuff! I walked out of my appointment with my hips feeling aligned for like the first time in 25 years. Seriously, medical massage fills a major healthcare gap left from physical therapy, pain meds, and heck, even chiropractic. I won't say it's necessarily a relaxing massage, nor is it meant to be, but knowing what the potential gains are going in, it's easier to breathe through the work and wow - the results are phenomenal! I have already booked my next session and will up the time from 60 minutes to 90 for all future appointments.

The Happy Foot Massage was weird as it wats done on massage bed. I expected it to be done in a foot tub with hot water. Also there was scrub left between toes which was scratchy. Ew. Normally foot scrub and massage done in foot tub. I don’t recommend.

I partially tore my rotator cuff and Laz fixed me; I did not need surgery after all. I did not know what medical massage was until I met him, I kept seeing wellness massage therapists who are only good at applying essential oils but did not rehabilitate me. He told me how many times I needed to turn and sent me home with exercises. He used a measuring tool similar to a ruler so that we can compare my range of motion and the improvements I make between sessions. He speaks about anatomy like no other massage therapist, you can tell he has a college degree. Apparently my insurance provider covers medical massage so I sent his invoice in for a claim and Laz sent my patient chart so that I can get reimbursed. I got better and I got my reimbursement so I could not be happier! If you don't make any improvements with your current therapist and you are told to keep on returning indefinitely then come see Laz; I got discharged only after 5 sessions and so can you!

I have only positive remarks for Laszlo's technique, ability to address concerns and personality.
by Dora on Mar 18
I liked the way Laszlo asked questions and responded to my needs by putting good pressure on all the right places and discussing what he was doing and why. He was professional and thorough and also very pleasant.
