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.

Clair always does such a great job! She listens to what you need and rechecks as the session goes to make sure things are going ok, the pressure is right, etc. So glad I found her.

Claire has a natural sense of finding exactly what needs to be released in the body. Not only does she uses myriad techniques for clients’ individual needs, but she is a real joy and very professional. I have and will continue to recommend her to clients and friends.

Claire was intuitive, and calming. I left feeling rejuvenated, and more centered and relaxed. Such perfect energy. I can't wait to go back! -Ashley

Very pleased with the professionalism that Claire exhibited. She knew I had Parkinson's disease and she did her homework prior to our first session. Looking forward to my next session. Highly recommend Claire for your massage needs.

As someone recovering from a serious shoulder injury, I appreciated the skill that Claire had with therapeutic body work. I believe that these sessions were a good adjunct to the physical therapy that I am receiving.
