"Luz was the therapist who gave me a massage a few weeks ago. It was excellent. Thank you! and thank you to Jennifer for hiring great therapists and training them to be even better! - Pamela B
"My massage today with Luz was awesome! I asked for therapeutic massage for long time back issues. Luz's technique stopped the spasms and freed my lower back. She found a lot of other knots I didn't realize I had and took care of those as well." -- Chris L
"I had a 60 minutes custom massage with Luz and on a scale 1-10 she's a 15, I have been going to the 4 & 5 stars all my life & none of them come close. Serendipity is vey clean, very relaxing & the staff is very professional & friendly. Simply the best I've ever had!! Thank you!!" -- Belaynesh G
"My boyfriend and I booked a couples massage and we absolutely loved it! The studio itself creates a calm and cozy atmosphere. We both thoroughly enjoyed our massages by Raja and Luz. They were very attentive and professional." -- Jenny Z.
"Love, love this studio. The therapists are top-notch. They don't rush you and are very polite. I had a massage with Luz and a facial with Ravi, and they were both fantastic. The workers are very kind and friendly to their clients as well."-- Laura D
"I went for a 90 minute Thai Massage here on April 20, 2016. They took out years stiffness out of my body after forcing me to do yoga with assistance. It was great and very relaxing. Shout-out to Luz who is very experienced and did a great job. Well recommended!" -- Diana M
"Was having troubles sleeping and lower back pains. Searched Yelp for massages around me. Found Serendipity and was able to book online for first thing the next morning.
"I booked the 60 minutes custom massage was Luz. BEST MASSAGE EVER! She was able to help my lower back pain with a variety of massage techniques. She is very knowledgeable in the massage field and knew exactly where to focus on. She uses traditional Swedish + deep tissue, Thai stretching, as well as walking on my back and hamstrings. I've gone to many upscale luxury spas and have paid double or even triple of what serendipity charges for less quality massages. I will be back to have Massage sessions with Luz. Thank you Luz! Because of you I was able to sleep like a baby! Also, my back feels 1000x better!" -- MBT
"I was very happy with Luz and will schedule with her again in the future. She listened to what I wanted, explained what she was going to do, and kept making sure I was okay throughout the massage. I absolutely feel that I got what I needed out of my appointment." -- Bethany G
"Luz is quite honestly the best massage therapist I've ever had and I've had many. Her technique, work ethic and professionalism are outstanding. She listens and expertly works through knots and pain like none other. She's the BEST!" -- Tara L
"My experience was perfect. Luz did an amazing job and communicated with me about what she was doing and whether I was experiencing any discomfort. It really helped me to deal with pain that I have been experiencing, and I am very grateful to have found Serendipity. It really is like an oasis." -- Daniel D
"We had couples massage and the ladies, Luz and Jenna were super great at what they do. We had a very relaxing afternoon and needless to say very good massages. Your facility looks great, makes you relax and very clean. I came out buying a gift card for my daughter and would def tell my friends.I would book with you again. I just wish the room we were in was not so bright, I think it's because of the glass window? However it didn't matter after a while and we still enjoyed being there. Thank you very much." - Carla H
"Best massage I've ever had! Today was my first session at this place, with Luz, and I felt amazing afterwards. I definitely plan on going back!" - Jess N
"I had my very first massage at Serendipit
"Based on reviews, I booked with Luz! She is EXCELLENT! I have booked with her twice both 90 minutes and her skill is amazing! She takes care of those neck knots and I don't feel after-pain. She is also trained in Thai massage and I am so glad that her pressure is perfect. She is not a "chatter" which is another super plus! I come to relax not to chat which is the problem with some therapists. Liz is professional, very skilled and definitely knows her stuff!" -- Lyn L.
"Went to serendipity a little bit ago for my second time. The first time I went I had Luz and the second time I went I had Bonnie. Their customer service and techniques for optimum benefits from the massage are excellent and I was very happy both times I went! I plan to be back! :-)" -- Stephanie S.
"I have been to many spas around the world and i thought the services were just fantastic at Serendipity. All the nice extra things that were included (hot towels on neck, feet, hands etc) in both the massage and facial really made it special and extra luxurious. Luz' massage was one of the best I have ever had!" -- Jennifer L
"Luz was great and did an excellent Thai massage despite my high level of inflexibility." -- Laval M
"..it was great and I definitely plan on coming back and having Luz work on me again.." -- Angela
"Luz did a great job on loosening my hip it has not felt this good in months. I would recommend her to any one that is having problems with tightness. Because of Luz I purchased a OOOH 90 minute plan. Plus she is very attentive to your problems and the amount pressure she uses. Thanks again Luz for your help I will be back." -- Mike Z

"I decided to try a massage with Luz since I had not had one with her before. The massage I got was wonderful and she told me how she did Thai massage and suggested that Thai massage might be good for me since I had an issue with my left quad that made my left leg very stiff and unflexible. I made my next appointment for a Thai massage and was so happy I did. I felt the massage was exactly what I needed. She uses her feet to massage your arms, legs and back and you wear loose fitting clothing for the massage. I felt great after the massage and also felt like I had more mobility in my left leg. I continued to have Thai massage for my next several appointments. I then recently injured my back working out and I made an appointment for a regular massage with Luz. She worked and worked on my back and buttock area using several techniques to relieve the pain and when I got out of there my back felt so much better. I also recently had issues with my right bicep and again Luz used several techniques to get the knots out of my arm. She also makes sure that what she is doing is working and also remembers the areas I had issues with when I come back. I highly recommend Luz as a massage therapist and if you haven’t tried Thai massage I definitely think it is worth trying out." -- Pat G.
"Luz was very communicative and was always asking questions to see how I was feeling. She paid attention to detail and was very warm, friendly, and professional. I have been getting massages for fifteen years, and this was one of the best! Serendipity is lucky to have her" --Carol G.
