“Every athlete needs a dream team to ensure they stay healthy and perform their best. Claudia Chapel is a key member of my dream team and has been for over 20 years. I send all runners to Claudia. I know only four phone numbers by memory–my parents, my wife, my best friend growing up, and Claudia Chapel. I trust Claudia and she is more than a muscular therapist, so get ready for some tough love.”

“I was a weekly client of Claudia’s for one year following a work-related injury. Her work contributed to an amazing improvement, and only a move to Boston kept me from continuing to see her on a regular basis. I have worked with several muscular therapists, massage therapists and chiropractors, but I have never seen anyone to equal Claudia’s knowledge or skill.
Many were the times when I would walk in the door and prepare for treatment ready to explain to her that a particular motion or area was painful or impaired. She would enter the room, and without asking a single question begin to work on the problem area. I asked several times – how did you know? Her answer was usually, ‘I looked at how you carried yourself as you walked in the door.’
During treatments, she never had to ask how something felt, or if the pressure was ok. She knew what to do and how to do it. I always left the office feeling better, and never as if I had been beaten up.
Besides the extraordinary treatment I received, my visits were also an oasis where I was able to feel relaxed and cared for. Claudia set me at ease with her professional and personable manner.
In all, Claudia is a consummate professional and an expert in her field. I highly recommend her to anyone – whether the injury is large or small. She will know what you need to get back to health, and she will help you get there.”
“I had injured my back over years of running. It had gotten to the point where I could barely walk. Every doctor I saw gave me a different opinion and treatment. Nothing was working. Claudia examined me and advised regular massage and stretching. She had me back up and running in no time, pain free. We won the world championships a few months later that year. If you are serious about taking good care of your body, put yourself in Claudia’s hands.”
