Serendipity Wellness

Livewell. Serendipity.

We first opened Serendipity Wellness in July of 2016, but our story doesn't begin there. Many years and many experiences led us to the desire to learn professional massage therapy, and to be able to share this wonderful work with others. Our family has greatly experienced the wonderful benefits massage can provide for pain relief, emotional health, and overall well being and we put this experience into the care and attention we provide all who visit us. We are often asked why we named our business Serendipity. Serendipity is the phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for. This has been our journey with massage therapy and our business. Neither were things we expected to become a part of our lives, but we are grateful and pleasantly surprised with the blessings we have received.
