Our Story

Follaine Health (Gaelic for Wellness) was born out of a desire to help real women with real health issues.  Based on our own experiences, needs, and expectations, we knew it was time to combine our expertise and create a platform where real women can find practical solutions to their health issues.  

The lightbulb moment came to us when we realized there are so many women, just like us, who are going through menopause and no longer feel like themselves but don’t know where to go for answers and support. Over 48 million women a year go through menopause and fewer than 10% of them get relief from their symptoms.   

If you are one of those women, we built this community for YOU.  As health care professionals, we are here to educate on what menopause is and what it is not.  To link arms with you on this journey because you deserve to feel awesome.  And we are here to help!

Amy Anci, BS, MA

Hi! I’m Amy! I am an exercise physiologist, educator, and wellness coach with over three decades of experience bringing health, fitness, and wellness to my family and community. I teach you simple health habits that will dramatically improve your life and help you reach your goals.

Health and wellness is for everyone.  I am here to share everything I have learned, and continue to learn, to help you live your healthiest life.

 

Growing up on the south shore of Long Island, I was an active child and played sports every chance I could get.  As a teen, my athleticism caused amenorrhea, which delayed my menstrual cycle until I was nearly 18 years old.  In my twenties my cycle was never "normal" to the point I was worried I might not be able to get pregnant.  The lack of information on pregnancy and exercise, led me to earn a certification in Prenatal and Postnatal Exercise from Elizabeth Noble, who founded the Women's Health Section for the American Physical Therapy Association.  Enter into my 30s, and two children later, I had the crash course of learning about my own body and its response to exercise and pregnancy.  A few years after my son was born I was tired all the time and experiencing anxiety.  My doctor offered me cyclical Zoloft and the pill.  "NO WAY," was my response.  I went in search of a doctor who would listen to me and not try to put a bandaid on my ailments.  Two years and many doctors later, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and a Vitamin D deficiency.  My interest in functional health and wellness was not just professional anymore, this was personal. 

As I have entered into my 50s and menopause, I have transitioned into learning more about hormonal health and why exercise and nutrition is still one of the most important factors of weight management, overall wellness, and aging well. 

We're on this journey together and I'm here to guide you as well as experience it with you.  It is integral that we listen to our bodies and become an advocate for our own health.  Our health programs are created for women by women.
