There is no other option but only to like Frances - sweet, professional, knowledgeable. Of course liking aside she has to be able to help you. I am her current patient, with weekly treatments. I can not say all my problems are cured, but she listens and changes her approach when things are not changing as fast as she would... More

Frances has amazing hands and is a wonderful acupuncturist. My back went out. I wasn't even able to lift my legs into a taxi. Stairs killed me. One session and I was walking without pain. I couldn't wait to get back. I went for a month (even though my back pain had already subsided). But each time I went, I... More

I have never tried acupuncture before and found Frances on TripAdvisor. I didn't have any particular aches and pains but just wanted to try for general well-being. So I've went to Frances once a week for about 3 months. And I really noticed a great difference in energy level and mood. She is amazingly skilled and has and she even... More

I went to see Frances because I had neuropathy in my legs and to a lesser extent in my arms and hands. I had been told that this was due to diabetes and possibly an after affect of chemo therapy. My doctor said that was nothing that could be done and that either I should learn to live with it... More

Frances is a wonderful acupuncturist. I work on the computer a lot and my hands and arms were really starting to bother me. A friend recommended acupuncture so I found Frances online and decided to give her a try. I felt relief after the very first visit and now I'm hooked. Frances is highly skilled, marvelously gifted, and impeccably professional.... More

I have had acupuncture in many different places but when I found Frances on my visit here earlier in the year I was amazed by the results. Her healing technique and understanding of her field is great and for me the treatment just seems to work and works noticeably well! Frances was working on treating a neck complaint I had... More

Very relaxing afternoon with Frances (after the Yoga - which was quite the workout). Good massages, nice, clean place, and definitely a good way to get out of the hustle & bustle of the big city. Totally recommended!

We heard about Frances from a friend who lives in BA and decided to take a break from partying & wine drinking to check out her place(lol). We did her yoga class (my 1st time) and it was super fun & a great workout! We also got back massages and my friend got acupuncture done. A super great experience and... More

I went to Frances in desperation with long standing symptoms that I have been unable to fix, despite the best well intentioned efforts of numerous medical professionals in different fields. While I am a big fan of TCM and have had some very successful experiences in the past, it can sometimes be difficult to find a practitioner who really can... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
