“It was at my very first massage therapy session with Claire that I realized she was unlike any therapist who had worked on me before.  Guided by a deep almost-mystical communication with the client’s body, Claire combines a very sophisticated knowledge of how the body works with an exquisitely sensitive touch that can be as strong or gentle as needed and can only come from wisdom and insight beyond her years.  One of Claire’s greatest gifts is that she’s always seeking to learn more.  That’s how she introduced me to Structural Integration (SI).  After our ten-session SI journey, I felt like a new person.  It was in those ten sessions, as I saw Claire working so hard to help me learn how to live in my body, that I really understood her unwavering dedication to healing the world by helping people re-integrate body, mind, and spirit.”

“Pregnancy is a beautiful process, but harboring a growing person in your belly for 10 months and going through the labor process can wreak havoc on your body, or at least makes you feel like it did. I have been an avid runner on and off  for 16 years. In fact, the year before I became pregnant I completed the marathon. After my pregnancy I found it so hard to do what I loved. I would try to run, but my hips would begin to hurt, my legs would barely lift, my core was so weakened that running was not an option. I tried different work out routines to strengthen my core but I felt like my body wouldn’t cooperate. I was going to give up. I turned 30, had a baby, I was concluding that it must be old age creeping in.   Luckily I found Claire, a Structural Integration Therapist. She was fabulous. We went through the ten sessions where she assisted in increasing my range of motion and re-educating my body. My mind took note of the ways I was moving that wasn’t serving me, and I was able to allow my body to do what it does best: move and heal. From our sessions I am able to move more efficiently. I no longer have problems with my lower back, I can do a back bend now! I also no longer have rigidity in movement, I run everyday with my baby!  Thanks Claire!”

“Claire has an amazing touch.  She has the keen ability to feel when the pressure needs to be adjusted without having to ask.  During our sessions I always feel supported and safe.  When I went through the 10 sessions of structural therapy with her my posture changed drastically and I felt better than I had in a long time.  I actually lost some of my chronic neck pain –  I didn’t think that was possible!  Claire is an excellent massage therapist and I look forward to working with her for many years to come.”

“I leave sessions with Claire feeling calm, with a sense of renewal and a desire to live a more peaceful and healthy lifestyle. She has a warm and comforting spirit. I believe she truly cares about the mental and physical well-being of her clients. I highly recommend her to my friends who suffer from stress-related pain and alignment issues.”

“Structural Integration is some amazing work. It helped me to find better posture through experiencing the work and exploring how it is that I carry my body. Understanding the problem is the first step to correcting it, and this work showed me where I can better hold myself to be aligned. I have recommmended this work to a couple of my clients also interested in correcting their posture and getting aligned. Thank you, Claire Panger.”
