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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Doug on Feb 28
Claire is the absolute best. Thoughtful, professional, careful, and talented. Hard to find such a well rounded set of traits in one person.
by Cynthia on Feb 24
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!

Warm cozy environment in the room makes me feel welcome and comfortable. Claire is professional, has a great touch, and knows just what muscles to work on to help me feel better. Her commitment to her client’s safety during COVID times is also evident in her following all the state and local guidelines to ensure our health.
