I have closed my business in accordance with state regulations in this COVID-19 crisis. If you would like an online private yoga session through Zoom, please email me at Claire(at)ClaireThompson(dot)com – Otherwise I hope to see you in May. Stay healthy! – Claire
In my bodywork, I specialize in an intuitive blend of Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Energy Work, Swedish, and Sports Massage to suit the unique needs of each client, using trigger point therapy and myofascial techniques to enhance the depth of my work. I also offer therapeutic and relaxing prenatal massage. Posture, strength, and body awareness is a key part of health, so I offer private yoga sessions targeted at bringing your body into alignment. A healthy body needs a healthy mind, so please inquire about guided meditation and meditation instruction.
Integrating Western and Eastern approaches to massage and health along with yoga and meditation feels natural to me and it’s how I live my life. Over my 18 year practice, I have developed a unique approach that is both intuitive and scientific, nurturing and empowering, healing for the mind, body and spirit.
Sessions encompass the hands-on massage with time for relaxed intake and pre-chat to inform the session, and self-care instruction to allow you to continue the healing at home between sessions.

Claire has been drawn to healing work her whole life. She received her first Reiki attunement and started her first “backrub business” in college 20 years ago, while studying literature and music. She decided to pursue bodywork as a career and has since received 1000 hours of training in 2 years of school, first at the Chicago School of Massage Therapy and later at the Swedish Institute in New York City, where she made a heart connection with the practice of Shiatsu. She is starting a 4 year acupuncture university program this winter to deepen her knowledge. Integrating Western and Eastern techniques is an essential part of her practice. To build on this, over the last 10 years she has also practiced, studied and taught yoga, meditation and Buddhist philosophy around the US and abroad. Over her years of connecting with diverse clients across country, she has developed a unique approach that is both intuitive and scientific, nurturing and empowering, healing the mind, body and spirit.
Claire also offers partner massage instruction both privately and in a workshop setting.
