Read what Serendipity clients say about Vannessa:
"This is my second prenatal massage session with Vanessa and it's been great! I went to the first session for shoulder pains and the second session for lower back aches. In fact, my back aches were so bad I used to cry. Both times, the pain has gone away and I felt SO MUCH better. Vanessa is also very friendly and happily answered any pregnancy questions I had. She made sure I was comfortable and relaxed during the sessions. I would highly recommend her for any pregnant women who needs pain relief or simply needs to relax." - Clara C
"Vannessa was very intuned to my back pain and clearly communicated her recommended course of action, ensuring I understood there should be no pain with my massage. I came to her with lower back pain, that shot down the right side of my leg to my foot. She is gentle yet firm and recommended some exercises I can do to make improvements. My situation is unique because we are moving in two weeks and have been neglecting myself to get ready for our move after 35 years in our home. I highly recommend Vannessa because she truly cares about my well being during this stressful time in my life." -- Bonnie C
"I was super tight through my neck and shoulders. Vanessa did a stellar job working through the knots, which was no small feat. The studio is a hidden gem - ticked away in an office park. Inside it's a little piece of zen!"-- Jennifer B
"Vanessa was amazing! She focused on all of my problem areas." - -Tia W

"This is our second massage at Serendipity. This time, we opted for the two-hour couples massage, and "as good as it gets" doesn't come close to describing David and Vanessa. My girlfriend is taking a nine hour drive tomorrow, and this was my pre-drive present to her. When they were done with us, we floated out of there, had dinner and wine, and are soaring with pleasure. She is chaperoning a middle school trip for 10 days, and we've agreed to have another couples massage at the first opportunity when she returns. Better than anything we've ever had on a cruise or in a resort!" -- Paul and Dot
"Excellent massage! I had some issues w my neck and Vanessa worked very hard to alleviate the issue! All I can say is after two weeks of pain, I am almost back to normal! Thanks so much Vanessa!" -- Heather B
"It was great! Loved it! Vanessa was terrific!" -- Tracey
"It was my first visit. I absolutely loved the environment (aromatherapy, warm bed, nice music), and Vannessa was beyond fantastic. My best massage ever! Thank you!" -- Charlene
