Additional Cambridge Location for Better Life Acupuncture & Herbs

Midgie Franz, owner of Better Life Acupuncture and Herbs, in Lexington, has opened a second practice location at Hands-On Health Associates, in Porter Square, Cambridge, where she will see clients on Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Wednesdays, 2 to 7 p.m.; and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Hands-On Health Associates is just steps away from the Porter Square MBTA station,” says Franz, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, “It’s in the lower level of the Porter Exchange building of Lesley University, and they offer personal care in a comfortable, professional and holistic setting.”

Better Life Acupuncture and Herbs offers gentle acupuncture treatments, herbal medicine consultations, and diet and lifestyle counseling. “A lot of people turn to acupuncture for help with a particular condition, and they’re stressed out about it,” says Franz. “What they discover is that they are able to relax so well that many conditions go away. Acupuncture is subtle but powerful medicine.”

Franz says that her treatments are particularly helpful for patients with any kind of pain, digestive complaints, sinus conditions and allergies, fertility concerns, anxiety, depression, stress and trauma.

Location: Hands-On Health Associates, Porter Exchange Bldg., 1815 Mass Ave., Cambridge. For more information, call 617-645-0073 or visit
