Frances Is The Best!
Frances is truly the best. She is kind, compassionate, understanding, and considerate. She has magic in her hands and in her words of wisdom. I have been blessed to know her and to be treated by her. I always feel better when I leave, and she leaves a lasting impression on me long after. She is such a joy and such a talent!

Instant help with neck pain
I came to Fran with three week's worth of neck pain, shoulder tension and headaches- as always, she told me what she was doing, what she found and worked on, and how I could do some self-care to help my body continue to heal. She respects my schedule, knows how much pressure I can take and remembers what is going on in my life, even though I only see her once every three months. She is such a compassionate, professional healer- really amazing. I would recommend her to anyone!!

Fran is a master!
I have been going to Fran over the last 7 years and she just continues to melt the knots out of me! She is fabulous on all levels- deep or subtle. Do not miss out.

I was in a lot of pain and Fran not only worked out the tension, she also gave me some great advice. I noticed immediate relief and even more improvement over the next two days.

Fran is such a kind, gentle person, acknowledging both the physical and mental states of her patients, and helping, through bodywork, to create a calm between the two. I cannot recommend her more.

Fran has extensive knowledge of the body and understands how to heal chronic issues and help to prevent them from coming back. The massage was wonderful - strong enough to bring relief, but not too strong as I have experienced elsewhere. Highly recommended!

I had no idea what to expect, overall it was amazing. I learned some things about myself and I also learned how to get rid of a nagging pain in my hip area which I had begun to accept as my norm. Fran showed me what to do to realign the area when it acts up and it's been working. I felt renewed, relaxed and encouraged. She definitely has a gift and healing hands. She is very knowledgeable and seems to really love what she does.

She did it again
I don't see Fran as often as I should. When I came in, I had a lot of pain and stored tension- it was all gone by the time I left and I could move again. She looked for the pain and attacked it- gently- to make it go away. She is an amazing healer!

Fran is such an inspiring & caring woman. She gives above & beyond, she cares deeply for all of her clients, and I think her hands may be made out of magic! She heals me & teaches me how to heal myself. Total bliss & peace!

Excellent and professional
I went to Fran for a lymphatic massage. She was very friendly on the phone and explained everything to be in detail. Her space is very clean, soothing and warm. She puts you at ease quickly. She did the massage and explained to me each of the techniques as she was doing them and even gave me "homework" to help with my healing process. I ended up buying a package from her and will be going back several times. I highly recommend.

Fran is Amazing!
Yes massage is about relaxation, but it's also about healing. Fran knows what she's doing and she gets in there and makes the energy start moving again. She has a deeply intuitive sense of where she needs to put her hands.

Life Changing Experience
Frances definitely has the gift of healing. It is really so much more than an ordinary massage. I was suffering with debilitating pain in my right hip, nothing brought me any relief. Frances took the time to show me ways to stretch in order to realign myself to make the pain go away. She's not only a healer but a teacher as well. I highly recommend her and encourage you to treat yourself to this wonderful experience, it has changed my life.

the miracle on Dekoven...
I have called Fran "magic hands" for a while now, and the title just keeps on being so. Aside from the strength and intelligence within those fingers and palms, Fran brings great focus and intent to her work.The physical space is a dream, the street is a pleasure, and, truly, "no one does it better."

Fran is so wonderful
I had not been to see her in quite a while when I went in yesterday. She remembered a lot about my history, it was amazing, and as always did a very thorough job of working out all the places that were giving me trouble. I have not been so relaxed in months, and I have no pain. For me, massage is a medical intervention, not a luxury. Fran is so good, she makes the case for why this is so. I would recommend her to anyone!

Fran is truly gifted... offering bodywork that is both medicinal and supremely relaxing. She has finely tuned skills for deep tissue massage - Shiatsu and Swedish styles. Fran can identify and address chronic issues and listens intently to what you need and are experiencing. I send all of my dancers, dance teachers, and colleagues to Fran. She can heal what ails ya' ! Fran is real Brooklyn treasure!

Great massage and greater advice
This was my first and definitely not the last visit that I will have with Fran. She was amazing at taking in the information I gave her and making sure that the areas of my body that needed care were addressed. Not only did I feel lighter, Fran gave me some great advice to use to enhance my physical well being. I look forward to developing a relationship with her!
Dec 13, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021
First time with Fran and I'll definitely be going back. She was warm and put me absolutely at ease. The massage was amazing - one of the best I've ever had. I look forward to a return visit.

Frances was great. Her house was warm and cozy and I felt very comfortable there. She worked on my trouble areas and everything felt better after the massage. I will definitely go back!
Nov 20, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021
I am very particular when it comes to massages. I'm a male that drives commercial vehicles for a living and workout in the gym often. This life style can take a toll on my body and the aches and pains that come along with it. After Fran is done working out all the kinks, I feel like a new person every time!
Oct 8, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021
Fran is amazing!! She got all the sore spots I knew about and ones I didn't. One of the best massages I have ever had. The setting is very soothing and she has a wonderful manner. I am addicted!

Fran is an artist!
First reflexology session. Fran was amazing. I don't know where my feet went because I floated out of the office! Intense relaxation, easing of aches. The afterglow lasted to the next day. Highly recommend.

as good as it gets
Had a prenatal massage and it was wonderful. At the time it was relaxing but I wasn't sure if it was actually going to help my body feel better after the massage was finished. Today I feel a thousand times better and am definitely going to go back to Fran and would recommend her to anyone!

Naturally Intuitive Massage Therapist
Fran Dunston lays her hands on your body and the rest just flows. She has a natural intuition and the perfect touch. I was extremely emotionally and physically stressed and had a 90 minute massage. I was able to relax, clear my mind and body and walked out totally refreshed.
Jul 2, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021
Fran is awesome
Fran is wonderfully knowledgeable about the human body and an incredibly good massuse. I highly recommend her. My body is like a graduate exam for massage and she aces the test!

I have to thank Fran for her attention to my needs, it is evident she really cares about her clients and you are in good capable hands with the healing touch.

First time customer very satisfied. Fran showed a real understanding of my needs and rectified the problems. I felt like a new man and continue to feel so.

Francis is the real deal
I felt like it was a massage and a Doctor's visit all rolled up together. Francis has a wonderful way of listening to you, and understanding what you are feeling and knowing what you need. I was extremely happy with my visit and I will make sure I incorporate a visit to Francis every month for my wellbeing.

Ministry of Wellness
I don't see Fran's practice as just a place to go for therapeutic wellness, but a place of ministry where not only your physical body is brought back into balance but your spiritual self as well. She helps to re-align your body so your spirit can be brought back into re-alignment because Fran sees that they are interconnected. Kudos! to Fran for her gift of committment to care for our physical and spiritual well-being.
Mar 12, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021
Being with Francis and getting a massage from her is soothing and stimulating, all at the same time. She knows just the right things to do and when to do them. I walked away refreshed and relaxed. I need to remember to do this more often.
Feb 23, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021
Fran is amazing
Fran is totally committed and extremely knowledgeable. She extended my first session so she could really help me understand my problem areas and how I could work on them right way, at home, to feel better. She wanted to understand how she could be part of my ongoing drive to be more active and healthier on an ongoing basis, not just to relieve any tightness right then. PLUS, I felt GREAT after seeing her! She really understands how bodies work. I will be visiting her again very soon.
Jan 22, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021
Simply the best
Fran's intuitive nature, her experience and understanding of the human anatomy make for an amazing massage. You walk away refreshed, relaxed and renewed. What more is there to say?

A Gifted and Gentle Healer
Fran found every pain point that I'd mentioned to her, and worked out all the discomfort, all the toxins, with gentleness and consideration. I spoke with her as you speak with a friend you have known for years, and her knowledge and care towards the human physiognomy is beyond remarkable and translates into her approach to you as an individual. I was totally in awe of her expertise. Her suggestions for post-massage muscle relaxation was also very welcome and more than appreciated.

Physically and Mentally Restorative
Fran is wonderful! Her presence was peaceful and warm. She was fully present throughout the massage, which helped me be fully present. She also knew what techniques to use in what combination. I left feeling completely relaxed and aligned, almost as if I were floating.

the most healing massage ever
After throwing my back out and being stuck in bed for a week I went to Francise for the first time. I knew I was in pain, I knew it would hurt. I did not knowing that her loving spirit would be able to really penetrate the tension that I felt. She is truly a gifted healer.
Aug 12, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021
Fran is the best, a truly therapeutic massage. She can fix whatever pains you have. Besides the massage she is a wonderful person and makes you feel very special.

The best gift you can give yourself
I came for my second Hot Stone massage with Fran last weekend. She has such a caring, warm presence, and her location is comfortable and inviting. I'm so grateful she is in Ditmas Park, and I encourage anyone in the neighborhood to see her!
Feb 23, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021

Jan 12, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021
Fran does a wonderful job of relaxing you and making you feel like you are in a place of solitude and comfort. Her hands are like magic and I never leave without a relaxed smile on my face. I have followed Fran from two locations and enjoy her new one very much. I started with Fran while I was pregnant and still go 2 years later. Enjoy!

I absolutely LOVE Fran and the massages I have received from her are transforming me! I am in an extremely stressful time in my life and Fran works out many many, many layers of stuff I do not need to hold onto!! I love her massages- firm yet kind pressure, hot stones, warm oil, relaxing music. I leave feeling several inches taller and as if my spirit has been soothed.
Dec 31, 2009http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30064021
Fran is the best, so cozy and so comfortable. You just do not want the massage to end. Wish I loved closer by because I would make it a weekly treat.

I love Francis' new set-up in her home! It is warm and comfortable and put me even further at ease. Also, the specials that Francis offers from time to time make massage therapy even more affordable. She is a wonderful person to work with and I always feel SO MUCH better when I've left!
