Meet the Owner

Andrea Royce started the Longhouse in the Spring of 2004 with Ken Laurence.  Their intention was to create a wellness center in the Gulfport/St. Petersburg, Florida area to share the various modalities available in the Healing Arts field.

Ken transitioned in 2014, but continues to shine his loving light throughout the Center. Andrea is a licensed massage therapist and a Reiki Master with a deep commitment towards assisting others on their healing path.

The drawing below is a generous gift from Lama Lhanang Rinpoche.  Both Andrea’s and Ken’s thumbs were used as starting points for his drawing (the center of the flower is Andrea’s thumb and the head of the hummingbird is Ken’s thumb)!
