Francine Chandler L.M.T
Licensed Massage Therapist
Hi… I’m Francine Chandler, but almost everyone calls me Frannie. I have been doing massage therapy here at the center for about 33 years. My favorite way to work with clients is to blend the modalities of sports massage, tragger work and deep tissue massage to fit each client’s individual need. I also love to give pregnancy massages! I use essential oils, heat packs, and healing herbal plasters during my sessions as well. Seeing my clients feel better and watching their healing progress, gives me great personal satisfaction! Come book a session with me soon!
