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.

Highly recommend Claire!

I highly recommend Clair. I’ve been seeing her for over a year now. I have seen significant changes in my posture and feel much better.

Claire has a knack for solving my pain in the neck.

Claire is super friendly, caring and professional. I was in a lot of pain due to TMJ and she has worked with me over the past 2 years and I have never felt better!😊

Loved my experience! Made sure I wasn’t in pain and was felt comfortable with the pressure. Claire is helping me with a condition I was recently diagnosed with and we are working together to manage my pain. Already scheduled my next 3 appointments!!

Claire was amazing. So was my whole experience. She listened to what I needed and what my body needed during the massage. She was very good at checking in to make sure I was good and nothing was too much or not enough. She has fantastic energy and a wonderful healing touch. I will be back to see her and would recommend her in a heartbeat.

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.

She worked out my shoulder issues, which felt much looser and better range of motion after the session. I will definitely be back for more of her skilled work.
