Claire has over 10 years of experience as a massage therapist, and her practice is deeply rooted in how the mind and body work together. Having felt limited by only addressing physical issues of clients, she began to explore modalities for integrating the mind and body. She specializes in working with women’s health issues including hormone-related conditions such as PMS, menopause, headaches, and much more. Starting with her 2010 degree from East West College of the Healing Arts in massage and continuing through training in reflexology, Reiki, Yoga, and Sound Healing, Claire is always expanding her ability to address clients’ needs through: •Therapeutic massage •Foot reflexology •Reiki: a gentle method of hands-on healing that taps into an individual’s energy •Yomassage: a modality that consists of therapeutic touch in a group environment in which fully-clothed patients relax in restorative positions and practice mindfulness.
In addition to providing massage through Evergreen Massage, Clai enjoys practicing daily yoga and meditation, walking Mt.Tabor neighborhood with her dog, and spending time with her 3 cats. Claire also has a bachelor’s degree in Applied Linguistics from Portland State University with certificates in Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language (TJFL) and Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TESL). Although, her subject has changed from languages to Reiki, her love of teaching people new art hasn't changed since she was a teenager.
