LivingWell was created by Frank Corcoran to provide a wellness center that offered the best in massage therapy, acupuncture and spa services. Initially focusing on pain relief, LivingWell has grown from a handful of practitioners to a wellness center with over 20 highly skilled therapists, acupuncturists and estheticians.
Although pain relief remains a top priority for many of our clients, we have seen a tremendous growth in requests for relaxation modalities. We continually expand our staffing and services to meet the needs of our community of clients.
We believe that we can help you to slow your life down and provide a space that is deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. We believe that we can create such a restful place for you that you will experience what it feels like to be ‘LivingWell’.

“Over the past 13 years I’ve tried many different treatments, approaches, and therapists to deal with, originally, a bulging disc and then with Fibromyalgia (a muscle syndrome) that went undiagnosed for four years. Several friends encouraged me to see Frank Corcoran. I’ve now been seeing Frank for several years and the strides I have made have been tremendous. Frank has an innate sense of where the root of a problem is, not just the superficial manifestation, of how to treat it, and which approach to treatment is the best for a particular person. I think the best way to describe Frank is simply to say that he is truly gifted.” –Jeanie S.

“I showed up at LivingWell after a long night of almost constant back spasms. The team was immediately sympathetic and got me right in. With no notice, but seeing my distress, Frank jumped in to begin my treatment.
I was in awe of Frank's knowledge and understanding of my pain. He was able to immediately remove the tension and significantly reduce my pain. Frank helped me to reshape the way I think about my back pain, but also to understand the pain, why it happens, how to stop it, and the emotions surrounding the back spasms that can cause more tension.
Frank's masseuse, Shannon, who finished up my appointment, had me relaxing to the point that I caught myself almost drooling.
Had it not been for Frank and his team, I would probably have spent my winter vacation crying and lying on hard floors, icing and whining. Instead, I was able to ski, bike, use an elliptical trainer and go dancing!” –Marjorie N.
