Laurence offers various therapeutic massages depending on your needs. Every massage consists of a body analysis prior to beginning.
Laurence uses pure organic oils and organic essential oils, all blends are tailore made for each person.
Massages have a deep and relaxing effect on your body and mind. Massages also have great health benefits. Since many of us experience stress in our daily lives a massage can really help you loosen up and relax.
Usually the tense muscles manifest themselves in our neck and shoulders and are caused by long periods of sitting which than lead to imposture disbalances.
Massage therapy increases and improves the blood circulation which results in a boost to our immune system. On the other hand receiving human touch and attention, in a context that is safe, friendly and professional, can have incredibly therapeutic and relaxing effects. Not only can massage encourage a restful night it also helps those who can’t otherwise relax naturally.
The method Laurence uses is called DSR or Derma Segmental Reflexology which is a deep tissue massage technique that works on the skin, muscles, connective tissue and bones. It is a deep treatment of the third muscle layer. It stimulates a massive blood supply causing muscle tensions and blockages to be removed as well as toxins. This gives direct results in pain relief. It works on both the body and mind and aims to stimulate the self-healing mechanism. Pain it is always a signal from the body that something is not functioning as it should. Most of us react with muscles tensing up.
When stress and muscle tension get too much they reflect negatively on our organs. At least 80% of the most common complaints that people nowadays suffer from are due to muscle tensions which in turn originates from stress in daily life.
Therefore having a deep muscle tissue massage has many benefits and works therapeutic in order to activate the body's natural healing mechanism and stimulate relaxation.
This massage technique is especially designed for elderly people, people with cancer or chronic diseases.

This frees up blockages and allows negative emotions to be released, to make room for positive energy.
