Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • I’ve only had one appointment with Claire so far , she was very welcoming, attentive, accommodating and knowledgeable. I have already booked four more visits. I definitely would recommend.

    Claire is a wonderful massage and bodywork therapist!

  • Claire always provides a wonderful massage and works out all my kinks!

    Claire is AMAZING! I’ve never had a massage therapist like her before and I’ll never see anyone else but Claire again. She has helped me so much with my migraines and my lower back pain, it’s been incredible. She’s great in asking you what areas you want to work on and how you’d like to spend your time that you booked. She really wants to make sure You’re both on the same page and that you feel like you’re issues have been addressed. She’s extremely knowledgeable, professional and most of all she’s super kind person that really enjoys what she does and it shows in her work. Her place is extremely clean, decorated beautifully and she makes you feel so comfortable. She also has taken all the Covid precautions so she has cross ventilation, air cleaners, some thingie on the cradle (sorry, not sure what the name is), hand sanitizers, checks your temp. And I’m sure I’m forgetting the rest. I can’t say enough wonderful things about her. I am Looking forward to my next massage!!

  • Claire’s healing ways and skill always seem to amaze me. Prior to the pandemic I saw Claire almost monthly to help reduce my muscle tension. Unfortunately due to added stress and uncertainty of the pandemic my muscle tension and jaw clenching went into overdrive. For months I suffered and tried all sorts of medicine and home remedies for treatments but all seemed to fail. After a one hour deep tissue massage session it helped my chronically tight muscles and pain around 60% better days after the massage. Claire is amazing at what she does and is compassionate and cognizant of the health concerns of her clients. I have learned to not neglect my overall health and well-being it’s just not worth it - deep tissue massage for me is needed now more than ever.

    Claire makes you feel comfortable and you can tell she takes great pride in her work

  • Claire was very friendly and professional. I had trouble with the directions I was getting from my google maps so she gave me directions.

    Claire always does a great job! She's one of the best.

  • Very happy with my massage. Looking forward to my next appointment!

    Claire is a true professional. Her massages are the best of any I have ever received. She continues to educate herself , and she always cares about the outcome of her work. She exceeds expectations.

I arrived at our session overwhelmed with stress due to work and other outside stressors. I explained this to Claire and she tailored her work to help relieve the stress. Not only did it relieve the stress, it provided me with a sense of peace, security, and feeling that can best be described as “it’s all going to be alright.” A wonderful and needed experience. Thanks, Claire.

The massage is awesome. The only item I could provide input on is that sometimes others in the building are talking loud or making noise. Maybe the music in the room could be a bit louder to cover that up.

Excellent experience! This was like no massage therapist I have ever experienced, she cared and didn’t just follow a routine. Claire not only listens to what I felt I needed, she listened to what my body needed. She regularly inquired as to how it is feeling and if I would like more intense or less intense. For the first time in many years I slept without shoulder pain waking me up. I highly recommend her and will be going back for many more visits!!

Claire is an exceptional massage therapist. She is intuitive and knowledgeable.I just completed 10 sessions of structural integration with Claire. When I started my left leg was almost half an inch shorter than it should have been, the result of my body trying to compensate for injuries from a car accident five years ago.. After completing the structural integration program, I am able to stand evenly and walk correctly, eliminating unnecessary stress and compensation on my knees, hips, and other joints. I cannot recommend Claire or this program highly enough!
