Claire Panger LMT, Structural Integration
Licensed Massage Therapist and Structural Integration Specialist, Deep Tissue Massage
Claire Panger is a Licensed Massage Therapist who has been in practice since July 2010. She specializes in Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular pain-reduction techniques, TMJD pain reduction (jaw pain from joint dysfunction or general clenching) and Lymphatic Drainage.
Claire also holds a diploma in Structural Integration from the Chicago College of Healing Arts. Structural Integration, a 10-session Postural Re-alignment program designed by Ida Rolf, aims to align bone structure via soft tissue manipulation three-dimensionally. Alignment and balance are accomplished and retained through education on economy and ease of movement.
She does not underestimate the healing power of a good relaxation massage and often weaves relaxation techniques into her therapeutic work as well. One of her favorite aspects of bodywork is the problem-solving and detective work involved in locating where discomfort originates and she loves the journey toward ever-deepening the assessment skills required for this task.
Claire regards massage/bodywork as the privilege to help empower the innate sense of self-healing within each client. As one of her mentors often said:
“There is only One of us here; any healing you do for yourself, you do for the collective.” In our chaotic times, during which we must continuously decide which reality to live into, healing- dissolving the illusion of separateness- can be a radical act."
