Overall, Jennifer is awesome, and is my go to person for massages. The only thing I didn't like as much was the feeling of privacy when the door opens with her new location. The room itself is nice.

Jen is the best!!! You simply tell her your problem areas and she will make that her main focus and not move on until she is confident all aches and pains are worked out. Her place is absolutely beautiful and provides such a relaxing environment. Jen has such an inviting personality and always a smile on her face! I would never go anywhere else for a massage!

Jennifer listens to you and focuses attention specifically for your needs. She often checks to be sure the pressure is right for you. The suite itself is relaxing, private and lovely. When you leave, feeling all relaxed, the place is quiet, not all chaotic and full of people and noise like at a busy club.

Jen Chiarino gave me a wonderful massage. Price is very reasonable for a hour massage. I have sensitive skin and the oils used were very soothing and I had no reaction from them. We discussed beforehand what type of pressure I needed for any areas that were giving me problems. The room was spotless and very relaxing. I highly recommend her and I will be returning. Rosemary W.
