Claire Panger, LMT, graduated from Cortiva Institute in July 2010 and has been in practice since. She has experience working in a variety of places including 5-star hotels, wellness centers, physical therapy and chiropractic offices, as well as seeing clients privately.


Claire has extensive training in therapeutic massage that goes beyond the initial schooling required to become licensed, which includes an additional diploma in Structural Integration.


She has a broad range of application. Claire can give the gentlest massage when needed or bring the work into deeper layers of tissue, while staying muscle specific. She is curious and values client education- all the while creating a respectful, nurturing, and safe space for clients to be held in. She considers this partnership to be a privilege.

Claire is very nice, and very professional. She made me feel comfortable right away, and did a great job on my first appointment.

After having gone a year without massage therapy, I had forgotten the sense of “everything’s going to be okay” I get after working with Claire and how important that feeling is to my well-being.

Claire really takes care to understand her clients' needs and tailors therapy accordingly.

Claire is a caring professional who always puts your safety and health first! She does her very best to make sure you feel comfortable and cared for at your appointments. I truly enjoy my massages and feel like she has made a drastic difference with my TMJ pain. Thank you!

Claire is the absolute best. Thoughtful, professional, careful, and talented. Hard to find such a well rounded set of traits in one person.

Claire is absolutely 5 star amazing! I came to her with a plethora of issues and she has me moving better than I have in years. With a load of stress, two hip replacements and an autoimmune thrown in the mix, she has been nothing short of a miracle worker. I highly recommend her and could not be happier with her approach to neuromuscular therapy, communication style and my progress!
