"I have been a client of Clare's
for 3 years. Her manner is gentile, yet firm, and extremely effective
for relieving the daily stress of life and the growing pains of
being a slightly overweight, inactive middle years male adult.
I always look forward to my appointment and the duration is usually
"I'm a masters track athlete
and my first encounter with sports massage therapy was when I
was competing at the National Indoor Championships over ten years
ago. I had been suffering from a niggling hamstring problem, which
was preventing me from being able to running 100%, they had a
massage table at the event so I decided to give it a try, I couldn't
believe the difference and was able to run freely for the first
time in over a month! I decided I needed to see a massage therapist
on a regular basis! At that time Clare was the massage therapist
at the gym where I worked out so I scheduled an appointment and
have never regretted it. Since that time I have regularly visited
Clare for both preventative and injury treatment which has been
very successful. I have also recommended her to at least ten of
my training partners including an Olympic medallist who have all
found her treatment to be beneficial. As a result of my recommendation
Clare has also treated a track team that I help coach, both pre
and post competition. Finally Clare has also been treating my
daughter for 'whiplash' following a auto accident. Clare has an
uncanny knack of knowing where the problem is, I've lost count
of the number of times I've seen her and said that I had some
tightness somewhere and Clare would unerringly locate the trouble
spot with her 'magic thumb'! I would unreservedly recommend Clare's
therapy to anyone engaged in sport both as a preventative measure
and for treatment of injuries."
"I broke my back as a teenager
and since then have always had a lot of back pain. I tried everything
from rehab to chiropractors to medications. None of these helped
me. I finally went to clare and she gave me a therapeutic massage.
I haven't had any of the problems I had before and I am very happy
with her services."
"For most of my life, I have
suffered from headaches. During my college years, these headaches
developed into migraines which became frequent and debilitating;
they were beginning to control my life. I often missed work because
I could not get out of bed some days. I have been to a number
of doctors, including a neurologist, to seek help with curing
this problem... I tried a few different "preventative"
medications, but the migraines continued to occur an average of
1-2 times each week.
I began massage therapy with Clare Caldwell in May
2002, and I can honestly say that this has had the greatest effect
in treating my migraines. Massage therapy has taught me how to
listen to my body...I went for two therapy sessions each week...
Clare has also introduced me to several other treatment options
and is always opening new doors for me. For the first time in
many years, I have been headache-free for 2 weeks! That is my
proof that massage therapy has been an effective treatment for
me, and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who suffers
from severe headaches or migraines."
