Nurturing the Mother Fertility Massage

Fertility Massage - Chapel Hill, NC

One client's journey with her Nurturing the Mother® Fertility Massage Specialist:

I was in the dark for a while & grasping at thin straws to find answers to a predicament that not many people talk about, but at the same time feels so real & painful.

That brief chat we had of just me sharing what I went through with you, and you being present in my grief & really listening & wanting to help, made me feel like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. During the massage, the meditation you whispered in my ear helped me transcend from my physically tired & burnt-out state into a new place that made me feel hopeful & renewed.

The book, the supplements, the lifestyle change, the fertility massage all worked in concert to a positive pregnancy test!

My husband & I are still in shock that we are where we are now. We will forever carry in our hearts the two miscarriages that brought us to the lowest of the lows, which at the same time, served as the light at the end of the tunnel that made us realize that our bodies needed to be better prepared & healthy to act as vessels to successfully conceive.

"Claire was amazing. I never imagined I could learn so much in so short of a time - but the presentation was the key. I could not imagine a better system of learning."

~ Stella Surkiewicz

"Claire is a smart and en-point teacher, very knowledgeable. IT is a much more scientific/medical approach since she has a background in medicine/x-ray. Easy to read charts and fun class."

~ Amber Davis

Advanced Integrative Reflexology

Advanced Integrative Reflexology - Surf City, NC

"I really enjoyed the class and will absolutely incorporate the techniques within my routine.  This will streamline my work beautifully. All these years and my preconceived idea that your content would be similar to Eunice Inghram’s (walking thumb)…how silly and unfortunate that I had never taken any of your classes before now. The good thing is, that this will carry me through into my 80’s, even if all I do is hold the solar plexus spots on a loved ones feet.

~ Patty Goett

Lymphatic Massage for Detoxification

"The class was awesome!  Incredibly rich and totally inspiring; it's clear we should all be having this work all of the time."

~ Beth Burke

"Have been needing to take this course for many years. It did not disappoint. It was extremely well presented and the education and knowledge I now have will be incorporated into my daily work and therapies I provide my patients."

~ Doris M. LaVere

"So much good info, I really feel like I can add it into my practice easily and that it would benefit my clients greatly! Super stoked about all the info. Thank you."
