About Us

A First Choice - Mobile Thermography

Adelpha Breast Thermography (Adelpha from the Greek, beloved sister) partnered with Therma-Scan Reference Laboratory, the world’s premier source for analysis and reporting of medical thermology in 2011. Therma-Scan is the most experienced and accomplished provider of medical thermology in the world with the highest technical and professional standards offering their unique services since 1972. We are honored to now be managing the Therma-Scan Regional Office in Bingham Farms in Michigan since 2019 as well!


Adelpha Breast Thermography offers our mobile services to medical offices, health care professionals and health-minded clinics such as spas, yoga studios and massage therapy specialists as well as in-home Bosom Buddy Parties.


We have used the interpretive services of Therma-Scan for over a decade for our own personal thermograms, valuing this vital service above all others. We knew from the moment we made the personal commitment to educate woman about their choices and bring this valuable service to our community, the level of integrity and expertise we demanded for ourselves was the only service to offer to other woman.

Our Backgrounds

Linda is our thermologist "extraordinaire"! She has over 30 years experience combined as a critical care nurse in Canada, the US and several years abroad. With a deep desire for her patients to heal and empower themselves, Linda began exploring alternative methods in 1990, becoming a massage therapist, continuing on to be advanced certified in many subtle and powerful energy techniques: Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET), Bio-SET, Jaffrey-Mellor Technique and the highly sensitive, energetic NeuroModulation Technique. Today Linda continues offering her services over the phone, enjoys going on location with Adelpha Thermography and as of the fall of 2019 she and Dr. Fran expanded services offered at the behest of Therma-Scan Reference Laboratory by opening their new office here in Bingham Farms, Michigan.

Fran is the "back office" specialist at Adelpha. After 15 years in executive recruiting, she experienced a healing crisis. Ultimately seeking the services of a chiropractor she was inspired by her life-altering healing experience and attended New York Chiropractic College in 1987. She maintained two highly successful practices for ten years before accepting a one year assignment in Michigan for a start-up non-profit organization. Concurrently she met and co-founded a multi-disciplinary center: "Pathways to Wellness" with Linda Allchin. Since then she was recruited as Executive Director of an energy-based allergy elimination seminar business, held administrative roles for two non-profit organizations, remaining as a Board Member of the Conscious Living Foundation, and remains an active consultant in the EMF protection industry. Today she follows her passion with the Therma-Scan of Michigan organization, continuing to bring quality medical thermography to women and men alike.


Our mission is to provide earliest breast cancer screening with expert quality, mobile thermography for patients, utilizing the premier medical thermology analysis expertise of Dr. Philip Hoekstra of Therma-Scan Reference Laboratory. This assures consistency and reliability vs. other interpretation services who utilize more qualitative rather than the quantitative FLIR infrared radiometric camera. While other interpretation firms specialize in marketing, training, equipment sales or other businesses, Therma-Scan sets the highest standards, specializing solely in diagnostic clinical imaging and interpretation!                  


Informed women are now requesting thermology from their health care practitioners at greater and greater numbers. Adelpha supports Physicians and Practitioners in offering this valuable, safe, early detection technology to everyone at medical offices, spas and all alternative health-related offices and clinics.


Integrative or complementary medical practitioners, especially those with interests in anti-aging, bio-identical hormones, preventative care, functional medicine, and health and wellness can now enhance their partnership with patients by offering safe, effective and non-invasive early breast cancer screenings, as well as medical thermology for thyroid and vascular studies in the convenience of their own office. This supports the concept of a full range of comprehensive care individualized for each patient. Unique in the field of mobile thermography, Adelpha fulfills the needs for any necessary follow-up thermology scans as warranted by lab results and referring Doctor’s recommendations. Thus, in addition to the convenience of yearly screening, comprehensive consistency of care is increased when offered conveniently in a trusted and familiar environment: the physician’s office.​
