We are a unique team of individuals dedicated to our own holistic growth as well as to that of our clients. Larry Wells founded Future Life Now after experiencing the transformative power of Neuro-Linguistic Programming in his own life and in the lives of his parishioners. (Yes, he was previously a minister.) The team doubled in 1999 when Cynthia Allen joined. Due to her own struggle with pain, Cynthia discovered and eventually trained in the Feldenkrais Method. She experienced “miracles” that motivate her to this day to help others find freedom from pain and better function.
Larry and Cynthia, husband and wife by the way, have co-owned Future Life Now for many moons now. A few years ago, they laid out a plan for growth, and in 2012, opened a new location that was built specifically with their core values in mind. This allowed us to add acupuncture to our practice.

Cynthia Allen, GCFP, STMI
Feldenkrais Practitioner – Partner
Cynthia has been working in holistic practices, health care management and organizational consulting for over 25 years. In 2001, she became a Certified Feldenkrais® practitioner and, more recently, a Senior Trainer in Movement Intelligence. By day, she helps children and adults find easier ways to navigate life challenges and thrive. By night, she is dreaming up new options for how people can become more fully human through awareness, curiosity, elegance and action. Admittedly, she is more than a little obsessed with the field of somatic education and the difference it can make in the world.
Cynthia also offers workshops throughout the United States and has taught as adjunct faculty at Xavier University and collaborated with Drake Hospital Rehabilitation’s Physical Therapy department and Integrative Learning Center of Mid America. She has provided programming for many hospitals, medical practices, and corporations including Procter and Gamble.
Larry Wells, M.Div, M.S.W.
NLP Master Practitioner – Partner
Larry’s journey has a theme. When he was in elementary school he and his best friend were given extra math problems to solve, just for the sheer joy of doing math. But Larry noticed most others found math to be a chore. This led him down the path of helping others discover how to make math easier and fun-filled. After a few years of teaching math, he was encouraged to pursue Christian ministry where he could assist others to live lives filled with meaning and success. As a minister, he noticed the tremendous need for better approaches for improving mental and physical health and wellness. This led him to become a Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). After leaving ministry, he moved from Missouri to Cincinnati and founded Future Life Now. He went back to school for a master’s degree in social work and served as a substance abuse counselor and then in organizational development.
Larry has worked to help people successfully navigate issues such as cancer, infertility, organ transplant, chronic pain, PTSD, and surgery.
