Corrective Movement Remedy
“I was put in touch with Claire during a flare-up of shoulder impingement which I have battled on and off for eight years. I’ve tried everything and have received several different diagnoses all pertaining to inflammation, but no matter what the doctor’s prescription was it always involved a long and painful recovery process. When I saw Claire I was desperate. She was so kind and gentle as she moved through different tests to pinpoint exactly where my muscles were failing me. She was thorough in testing all possibilities and explained everything she was doing along the way. Her gentle energy was much appreciated as I shed some tears throughout the process. Both she and I were blown away by the results: I was off all anti-inflammatories by the second day after seeing her and able to sleep normally (a very missed privilege during a flare up) again by the third. This required my dedication, too! She gave me exercises to do every day and I was determined to get rid of the pain so I made sure to do them. Overall, I am so grateful for her knowledge, experience, demeanor, and spirit. Thank you, Claire. Yay for no more pain!!”– Michelle
I came to Claire with extreme dysfunctional movement patterns that have been in grained in my body for the past 52 years. Claire helped me unravel these patterns one by one. She is knowledgeable, detailed, kind and very caring. With Her gentle energy she tested my muscles and provided detailed explanations and homework to follow in between sessions.Thank you Claire for helping me free my body from years of pain and connect with my body in a whole new way. You are a gift!-Anita
I went to see Claire for consistent debilitating jaw tension that had slowly begun to take over my life. I had an expert healer who could not find the root cause of the reoccurring tension. I had Western and Chinese medicine doctors tell me it was Post Viral Syndrome that could last for years without a solution. I had given up vinyasa yoga and anything that used my upper body, and I changed my diet which kept me out of pain but still with constant tension that made me irritable and feel not like myself. I went in to try NKT with Claire after a year of no answers. This is the first time I can feel what being relaxed is like again. Claire found that my jaw was compensating for a large portion of my body including some core muscles and I could finally sit up straight again after our first meeting. This method is truly incredible. Claire is absolutely lovely to work with and you get to learn about your body-mind connection in a new and very tangible way. I highly recommend working with her. Thank you Claire!
Old patterns of dysfunction in your body won’t know what hit ’em!This is focused, highly effective work with a caring teacher who understands body mechanics on so many different levels. I came to Claire because for all of the planks and abs I do…I still felt weak in my lower back and had the sense that my core could be much stronger. In two private sessions, Claire was able to identify the problem and retrain my body and mind so that my lower back got out of the way – and let my core do its thing. I am pretty awed that we were able to change a problem I had struggled with for years so quickly.
When I joined Claire’s studio Rising Lotus, I was fatigued and with all sorts of pains that I had ignored for far too long. The entire reason I made the switch from kickboxing to yoga.
After some attendance in Claire’s delicious morning yoga sessions, she caught onto my aches & pains, and said “when your tired of them, come see me” I’m usually much more stubborn in my ways, and a skeptic, but my gut said go.
From the moment we started going through the main spots that had been giving me a hard time, I felt at ease, and confidence in Claire’s ability to investigate the root causes and deliver information. It made sense to me the system she uses, the Neurokinetic Therapy.
We went through a series of exercises and homework to identify the causes, its fascinating, that my shoulder pain could be rooted from clenching my teeth at night. Or that my knee pain that I thought for 9 years was my cartilage is in fact not, but a ligament that I was never in touch with, all of a sudden from her homework exercises the light was shining down and surfacing some even achier issues that were in dire need of attention.Claire is attentive, investigative, warm-hearted, professional, experienced and passionate for the work she does. I rest assure if you work with her you will feel all of this and more, and if that is not enough you will be on the road to recovery as well.
