“Nancy, my joint pain has drastically decreased. This is the first time since I started this chemo that my neck isn’t killing me. And my hip pain has been cut in half. Thank you so much! You really do have magic hands!”
Carolyn Ridge

“Michele is Excellent at what she does.  She manipulates the fascia and/or internal organs (viscera) in a painless way to create profound healing of a painful area…sometimes affecting areas of trauma that are years old!  I have used her services many times for myself to rid myself of pain from a chronic low back/hip condition and from an old intestinal scar problem.  I send many of my massage clients to her when we reach a maintenance level and I think Michele can bring them to a new plateau of pain relief! She is Wonderful!”

“Michele, I just have to tell you–I have felt such a lessening of pain since I saw you Monday; it’s kind of blowing my mind a bit. You were right; I was sore the next day, which did seem disproportionate to the kind of work you did, but by Tuesday night my back was feeling so much better. Today, Thursday, I’m still holding. In fact, for the first time in six weeks, I’m getting quality sleep! Can’t wait ’til Monday’s appointment! Thank you again; I’m so grateful to have found you.”

“I had a fracture and torn ligaments in my ankle which took months to heal. I had 6 treatments with a traditional physical therapist, but was still having considerable stiffness, swelling and some pain. After one treatment from Nancy the stiffness, swelling, and pain were almost completely gone. Nancy treated not only the ankle but the lower leg as well, which had become tight from compensating for the injured ankle. My ankle and leg felt better than they had in over 4 months! I would highly recommend Nancy and the BioSynchronistics therapy for anyone recovering from an injury.”
Amy, Natick

“Six months ago I began physical therapy with Nancy Eldridge, on the recommendation of my acupuncturist.   As a result of spinal surgery almost two years ago, I was left with significant problems involving posture, balance, and movement.  I tried traditional physical therapy when I was able to drive.  It was not offered at home.  The physical therapists had goals that seemed inconsistent with my problems.  As a result, little if any change occurred.  Unexpectedly, for me, Nancy and the acupuncturist identified these problems and addressed them with effectiveness beyond my greatest expectations. Over the months my problems, all of them, have been substantially diminished.  It saddens me to think of the long time I spent standing and moving with difficulty, with my body bent like a corkscrew or a pretzel.  If only Nancy or someone with her training and abilities had been there, then my posture, standing, and walking problems would have been treated sooner.”

“Being unable to sleep comfortably for several months, I was directed to Michele Duggan at Mend Well physical therapy. Although I am still in need of some treatment, after 2 sessions with Michele for neck, shoulder and hip pain, I am now able to get a good night’s rest . I would highly recommend Mend Well physical therapy.”
Daniele LeBlanc

“Hi Michele, good news and bad news. Good news first, you helped me get my body to a point where I seem to be able to maintain a comfortable state of wellness. Bad news, I can now do this myself through Svaroopa yoga. Thank you so much, I will be forever greatful for all the hard work you did on my body over the last year. I know I may still need you sometimes if I get into trouble, but I am thrilled with how far I have come since October of 2010.”
Judy Tatro

“Nancy, I wanted to express my deepest gratitude for the healing therapeutic service I received from you through Mend Well.  At this time last year I had terrible upper back pain.  I was assessed and treated by you, and I am beyond thrilled to say I am now pain free!  Your ability to pinpoint my muscular and alignment problems and then successfully treat them is amazing to me!  Thanks so much and keep up the great work!”
Joanne Brennan

“My daughter has received 5 treatment sessions from Michele at Mend Well to correct a bad posture imbalance.  She’s 14 years old, has grown 6 inches in 6 months and is very active in sports.  Playing lacrosse and field hockey often caused her to have pains in her back that were chronic enough to have her pediatrician recommend physical therapy.  We tried a traditional course of treatment from a local physical therapy office, but there was no improvement in her condition.  We heard of Mend Well through some friends who suggested we try their different approach to physical therapy.  The treatments themselves have dramatically reduced her pain.  She just finished a week of field hockey camp with no complaints of pain at all.  In addition to the therapy we also have her work on the various exercise techniques that Michele recommended for her specific back problem.  Getting her to do them isn’t always easy, but they do seem to be helping a lot.  I would recommend Michele and the Mend Well therapy method to anyone who might have a child going though the same growth pain and exercise stress conditions as my daughter.”

“Michele Duggan has given me quite a few treatments and I feel so much more comfortable for quite a long time afterwards. It is a gentle pleasant treatment.”
Jeanne Zook, age 95

“The results of Nancy’s professional technique, using just the touch of her fingertips, were felt almost immediately.  My initial skepticism, along with the pain and tension in my lower back were gone in a matter of a few minutes.”
Carroll, West Newbury

“I highly recommend Michele. She has been treating me for years, and with her expertise and technique, she has kept me from experiencing flare-ups of my chronic neck and back conditions. Normally I see her from time to time, but occasionally I overdo it and begin to feel an acute flare-up. A couple of visits with her and I’m back on track.”
E. D., Hopkinton

“On feeling good again… Nancy starts her treatment using BioSynchronistics by evaluating the entire body from stem to stern, employing visual and tactile techniques.  This thorough exam allows her to pinpoint old and new problem areas.  During each treatment underlying areas of restriction are exposed and worked on.  Using gentle and specific patterns, the fascia surrounding the muscles unwind with a freeing sensation.  In order to be successful, the therapist has to have great sensitivity, not heavy hands.  As a 70-year-old physical therapist with Parkinson’s disease I value her knowledge of how to fine-tune my body.   Thank you for helping my body function better.”
