“I have visited Jennifer several times and each experience was absolutely awesome! My body massage was desperately needed and she was able to get some of the major knots out of my neck! The facial she gave me has improved my skin and the organic oil I purchased from her moisturizes like no other! Thanks so much Jennifer! Will see you next time I'm back in the area!” -- S Kim
“I'm new to SpaFinder and was glad to see an option in Fairfax, VA. I was immediately drawn to Serendipity because of its holistic approach. Walking into the studio I didn’t know what to expect, but Jennifer made me feel welcome right away. The treatment room was cozy. I have had many types of massages in the past and was hoping this would be a good one. Pleasantly surprised!!! Jennifer was great. Will definitely go back!” -- Dianna
“I had Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy done last week and it was heaven. Jennifer is a miracle worker. I've had massages before (not here) and was never really too impressed with them. After this massage I have more range of motion in my neck than I've had in a long time! I loved this treatment so much that I booked my husband an appointment and he went today! He is NOT a massage person. When we were talking about his visit he said "next time I want it ..." In other words - he'll go back! Miracle! Thank you Jennifer... again!” - Vicki
“I am now a firm believer in the amazing benefits of a regular deep tissue therapeutic massage. I’ve been getting a monthly massage from Jennifer for a year. My posture was very poor and I have really tight back muscles. I decided to just have a massage every 6 weeks or every other month. After just 5 weeks of not going, I noticed I could not stand up as well and was constantly slouching. I just returned Friday and found amazing relief!!! I can once again, stand much straighter and feel GREAT! Kudos to Jennifer! She really works wonders and really cares about her clients.” - Mary
“I was given some SpaFinder coupons as a gift and it took me 6 months to get down to using them because of my hectic lifestyle...After looking at the spas listed in my area I immediately knew Serendipity was the way to go because of their holistic health approach. I went last night and Jennifer's 90min massage was fantastic! You can really tell she knows what she is doing as I have had many massages done before. I will definitely go back again! Budgeting a membership is very well worth it, especially if you are in desperate need of restructuring you life for your health's sake like I am...Highly recommended :)”- Irene
“I received a SpaFinder gift certificate as a birthday present and decided on Serendipity after reading numerous positive reviews. I scheduled an appointment for a 60-minute Custom Therapeutic Massage with Jennifer, and wow was it an incredible experience! Without going into every detail about what made the massage itself great (hot towels, heated table, excellent aromas, too much to mention!), there are a few things about the entire experience that are absolutely worth mentioning. First, Jennifer herself--as so many others have already stated--is brilliant. She was conversational and took the time to get to know me and my lifestyle a little bit. But, more importantly, she is incredibly knowledgeable about her craft and I actually learned a thing or two from her! The facility, as another reviewer remarked, is hardly that of a Utopian resort spa, but this didn't bother me at all. The ambiance was just fine for me; it was plenty relaxing for the occasion and I felt very much at ease. And, even if atmosphere were a consideration, Jennifer's exceptional skills rendered it a moot one. Just this one simple massage incorporated so many elements, I was completely blown away. A simple Swedish this was not; you will just have to try it to understand. Overall, this was truly an excellent experience. I can't wait to try the Lava Shells massage!” - Bill
