"I'm glad I found you to work with. It's been healing, as well as a good learning experience."  Herbal Client April 2022

"I just wanted to send you an email telling you what a BIG difference our sessions have made in my life! I can do all my usual physical therapy exercises again, walk fast for extended duration and almost feel entirely normal and strong. I'm sure that I wouldn't be feeling this way if it hadn't been for our acupuncture sessions!"     Dec 2020

"Midgie has been my acupuncturist for two years and she has become one of my most trusted care professionals. She is attentive, compassionate, and positive during every treatment. Her treatment spaces and office are clean, comfortable, and soothing. If you are interested in any of the services she offers, PLEASE see her. She's wonderful!" Feb 2020

"This was my first introduction to acupuncture and I was thoroughly impressed! Midgie's attention to detail and thoughtful approach made me feel very comfortable. She knew exactly what to do to tweak the treatment for improved results. I had not planned on making acupuncture a regular thing for me but I can't imagine going without it now. For someone with moderate anxiety, this is a wonderful treatment and a wonderful practitioner."   Apr 2019

"First visit with Better Life yesterday. Walked in with awful pain in my shoulder, arm and hand. Today the pain is reduced by about half! Looking forward to my next visits. Midgie was fabulous and really knew how to address my issues. She gave me some great tips to do at home." Apr 2019

"Midgie Franz is a highly knowledgeable individual. In addition to Oriental medicine she is also conversant with Western medicine. She has always done everything possible to make me comfortable. She practices what I think she referred to as "soft" acupuncture geared towards the minimization of discomfort during the process. A caring individual, she never misses an opportunity to show me support in this difficult stage of my life. Her treatment room is immaculate."   Jan 2018

"I gain focus and feel full of positive energy every time I receive acupuncture from Midge. She is calm and confident, her expertise and experience make you comfortable from the first appointment. I recommend everyone should try it, you will fall in love with acupuncture too! The treatments have helped me recover from injury, and ward off neuropathy from Chemo.  Jun 2018

"Midgie was recommended to me to aid with infertility and IVF treatments. Not only was she able to do just that, but she has also helped with my digestion, sleep issues and knee pain. I am now suggesting acupuncture to everyone I know! Midgie is a godsend in my eyes."   Dec 2017

"I highly recommend a cupping treatment to aid with getting over a chest cold. Midgie is very attentive and recommends herbal supplements to support the healing process." Oct 2017

"Midgie is a miracle worker. She has helped me with chronic headaches along with many other issues. Can't recommend her enough."   Apr 2017

"Midgie is a highly intuitive healer. Some people are very good practitioners but she really is a healing spirit. Also, besides her excellent abilities with applying acupuncture to various problems, she is a health coach, an herbalist and a very good listener. I have been her client now for a couple of years and I recommend her to anyone seeking these types of services. Plus, the space is relaxing and peaceful and there is plenty of parking!!"   Jan 2017

"Midgie is kind, patient, and knowledgeable. She listens well and always has resources to share. She takes the time to explain things. I always feel that my concerns are addressed. The atmosphere in Lexington is warm, welcoming, and relaxing. It's like being in your own home, instead of a clinical setting. I am so glad that I chose Midge and Better Life." Nov 2016

"Midgie treated me in 2014 for chemotherapy side effects. She is warm, informative, and tremendously empathetic. I returned to her in Oct 2016 for neuropathy and arthritis treatment and am so encouraged. I don't fully understand how acupuncture works, but I believe that it is wonderfully effective. Midgie is a terrific practitioner!" Oct 2016

"I went to see Midgie with really bad neck pain. She did points where I needed them. I was relaxed (which is hard to get me to do). She explained everything. When she was done I immediately had improvement in my range of motion and pain level. I can't wait to go back for another treatment. If you have never had acupuncture or have had it in the past I highly recommend going to see her it is a whole new experience!"     May 2016

"My Neurologist recommended acupuncture to me. My friends from China, an Acupuncturist and Physical Therapist told me to see Midgie. The progress I make from treatment with her grows exponentially. Midgie starts each session with kind gentle questions regarding my health. Besides acupuncture, she skillfully recommends supplements, simple exercises, music, nutrition & books; her treasure trove of knowledge seems endless. I was very sick when we began."  Sep 2014

"Ok, I went in a skeptic and came out a believer. What an amazing experience. Afterwards I felt like my body was whole again. Deeply relaxing. Very healing."          Aug 2013

"Midgie provided professional and courteous acupuncture and Asian body work. She took the time to learn and understand my personal needs. Then she developed and recommended a treatment customized for me. Her treatment was great for me, and I recommend her highly."   Mar 2013

"Midgie is such a gifted healer. She will make the aches go away, wrap you in warmth (literally and figuratively!), and give you the gift of balance. I would (and have) recommend her to anyone who is seeking acupuncture for any type of problem. She is a lovely person, and just sitting with her to discuss your condition makes you feel better!"   Nov 2012

"Midgie is a wonderful acupuncturist! She is completely a delight and holistic healer. She effortlessly treats the 'whole patient' and goes out of her way to ensure the best treatment! Without hesitation, I highly recommend her!"  :) Oct 2012
