Frances Churchill graduated from the Massage Therapy program at Globe University in December of 2011. She loves Massage Therapy as an occupation because of its ancient roots in the healing arts and the modern application for whole mind and body health. When she works with clients, she likes getting to know them by listening to what they say and listening to their bodies as they work together towards a goal. Her philosophy on massage marries science, anatomy and biology with the fine skills of observation and application of technique. Fran really enjoys fine-tuning her skills and treating headaches, chronic pain, and limited joint mobility. She prides herself on her versatility and listening skills. Outside of work, she enjoys taking care of her pets, visiting antique stores, crocheting, and spending as much time as possible playing with her nieces and nephews. Nature walks and music revive her soul and cooking dinner with loved ones is a basic necessity.
