Claire Garner

Licensed Massage Therapist

Certified Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapist

Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach


Claire joined Freeport Wellness in June of 2018 when she moved to Maine from Northern California where she was the Oncology Massage Therapist in the bone marrow transplant unit of Sutter Hospital in Sacramento.

Claire brings a unique perspective to healing through her integration of bodywork and functional medicine health coaching. Because each person is a complex collection of unique genes, musculature, life circumstances, and habits, each one of us needs an individualized plan to help us achieve true wellness, not just the absence of our symptoms. Through looking at aspects like sleep, daily movement, social support, physical tension, nutrition, exposure to toxins, hydration, and your personal medical history (among many other things), Claire helps you design the plan to greater wellness and vitality that feels the most exciting and effective for you. During your session Claire will work with you to ease any pain or discomfort in your muscles, break up any scar tissue, and help you design a wellness plan going forward that feels empowering and fun as you continue on your path to feeling pain free, vibrant, and more balanced than ever before.

While Claire works with all individuals in both her health coaching and massage practices she continues to find great joy in working with individuals with a cancer diagnosis.

Claire is registered with the Society for Oncology Massage. She is a licensed massage therapist in the state of Maine, and received her health coaching certificate from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy. Her certification in the Vodder technique of Manual Lymphatic Drainage comes from Klose Training.

In her bodywork Claire offers:
