We are grateful for our wonderful clients.


Once again your advice is spot on. Massage, yoga, and now the socks. The socks have made such a difference already.

I have only recently received services from LaFrance, but I can say that I have already seen the benefits.  I went for my first visit due to neck pain.  I should explain that I have had chronic lower back and neck pain for about two years, but this day was worse than normal.  My plan was to have a quick chair massage and go back to work with a bit less pain.  However, I was so impressed with Anne Marie that I ended up getting the full treatment.  I was in a hurry to complete the initial form (I hate paperwork) so I did not go into the full details of my pain; however, Anne Marie evaluated me while I was standing there talking to her.  She told me about aches and pains I was experiencing without even looking or touching my body.  I was amazed at the accurateness of her diagnosis.  She even knew that I had bladder issues.

I have now received two treatments and am virtually pain free with just a slight stiffness in my neck and shoulders when I am on the computer too long.  In addition, the flushing techniques have been to remove the fluid from my system and my clothes are fitting much looser. 

I have recommended and would recommend the LaFrance Center to anyone with muscle related pain.

Along about June, 2011, I begin to go to LaFrance Center for all my back pain. They have massage therapists that use a variety of techniques to relieve a variety of conditions, including pain. It was magic! They wanted me to keep a food and fitness record and bring it to my next visit. I was amazed at what all I was eating, and how little I was exercising.  Week after week I went back, feeling better each time. Slowly, I was going every two weeks, then every three weeks. They are very knowledgeable about their work. We decided eating healthier foods, yoga stretching and losing weight would benefit me and my pain.  Now, a year later, the pain is not over-powering me. I know I will have some pain, but I'm able to live with it. After each session with Christie, I able to enjoy life. I'm walking with my dog more every day, and doing things that I had gave up on doing again.

Thank you and God Bless.

Before I started receiving massages from Anne Marie, getting out of bed in the morning had become a difficult task.  Every bone in my body ached (very similar to the flu) and I felt very stiff.  Not only did I have to endure the pain, but my body was retaining large amounts of fluid.  The fluid got so bad at one point, that I had difficulty breathing.  When I first met Anne, she was kind and understanding.  She explained the benefits of massage and said the four words that gave me hope, "I can help you."  Since that time, Anne has been absolutely amazing.  Her knowledge and expertise in the area of Therapeutic Massage has made it possible for me to get out of bed in the morning without being in pain. The fluid has decreased considerably and my energy level has started to increase once again.  Thanks Anne for making each day more bearable.  You have truly been a blessing."

"Anne Marie gave me relief from the pain in my shoulder that I've felt for over a year!  She combined stretching and other techniques that other therapists have never used."

-Pete M.
"Awesome job.  Thanks a million for my visit with you and for the information as to the techniques you applied and what each one does."

-Karen M.

"A fantastic massage.  Relaxing and pain relieving." -Diane G.

"Exquisite massage!  Wow!  Professional and gentle, soothing with a twist." -Angie G.

"Incredible information about health issues as Anne Marie worked on muscles during massage."

-Biff B.

"Wow!  Anne Marie was wonderful!  I loved her unique, complete massage.  I feel great!"

The LaFrance Center is a really good place.  It's been helping me with a lot of things-weight loss, stress, pain management, and stopping smoking.

The first time I talked to Anne, she knew I had COPD.  I thought "How does she even know what's wrong with me?  But she knew and she said she could help.  I thought, "Why, what's the catch?  Then I decided, "Well, if she is willing to help me maybe I can do it."

I quit smoking with their help as well.  Before, the most I've ever quit is a month.  Now it's been three months without me smoking.  The fact that people care enough to talk to me and help me and they are not doing it for the money means a lot!

I used to think that counseling was a joke.  Now, I think, if you take it seriously, it can help.  The suggestions Melinda gives helps me to listen and think.

The counseling helps me to handle things differently.

Coming to the LaFrance Center has given me hope.  It is a very strange feeling to have people care about you.
