Strengthening the Mind, Body, and Spirit

Fran Sussman practiced holistic health for more than twenty-five years. Her passion was to help people become their fullest selves: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Fran was an avid educator and writer, including as a columnist for the Times Herald Record. While Fran is no longer with us, we hope her writing will continue to help those looking for guidance, inspiration, and support.

“We are here to take the pieces of the Universe that we are given, burnish them with Love, and return them in better shape than we received them.”
