Who we are

Serenity Therapeutic Massage is a practice of Registered Massage Therapists who aim for top-quality clinical care customized to each specific client. The RMTs have a range of expertise from postural assessment to prenatal massage to craniosacral treatments to sports injury massage.

 

We look forward to seeing you here and providing you with therapeutic massage in our serene setting.

Convenient booking and location

Serenity Therapeutic Massage is located in the heart of the medical district on Broadway on the 12th floor of the Fairmont Medical Building on West Broadway at Willow St with easy access by car or transit.

We know you're busy so we make it easy to book appointments online anytime through our convenient interactive booking calendar without the need to play phone-tag with a receptionist.

Above-ground pay parking is available in the building but it is often easier (and more economical) to park in one of the nearby buildings (777 or 805 W Broadway) or on the street. Just don't park on W Broadway after 3pm because the city will tow.
