Claire’s Temporary Leave of Absence

As many of you know, I am on a temporary leave of absence following a hip replacement surgery. I am home and recovering well. Right now I am primarily focused on my rehab, and getting my new hip strong and stable for my return to work in the new year. It is an opportunity to put into practice all the advice I have given to patients over the years about their own rehabs: taking it easy; listening to your body; and to your health professionals; being patient with the long road that recovery often is; recognizing and celebrating the small victories along the way (after 5 days, I was able to tackle the stairs and join everyone else upstairs for dinner!); and, leaving a little bit of room to just enjoy the forced downtime!

In my absence, I encourage my patients to seek treatment from our other therapists, Farley Johansson, RMT, and Gabi Vrana, RMT. They are both fantastic therapists and have different styles of treatments to offer you.

Anyone who is looking for Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD), please go to the Vodder School website to find other practitioners in the area.

At this time, I have planned a graduated return-to-work beginning March 18th 2019 and working up to a full schedule over the period of about a month. I am looking forward to my return, catching up with everyone and everything, and being able to once again help others with their own health concerns.

If you have any questions for me, you can contact me at

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!
Warm regards,
