Who: Clarity’s proud Mumma-Bear!
Why: Sarah established Clarity in 2013 with a dream to build a unique multi-disciplinary centre of highly skilled, motivated and positive practitioners operating in a professional, warm and supportive space, with a view to provide authentic and effective care to a broad range of clients. Since then, the Clarity Family has grown to a team of 17 brilliant practitioners, teachers and admin staff!
How: Herself a very experienced Remedial Therapist, Sarah passionately treats a small number of regular clients, but as the demands of a growing team and business continue to expand, she is honing her focus towards the development of Clarity Wellness, and educating SA practitioners through Clarity Courses & Workshops.
Outside of the wonderful world of Clarity, Sarah loves: music, theatre, film, food, giving presentations, drinking wine, tea & craft beer as well as networking, cooking and snuggling with Bill Murray (her cat!)
When: Sarah is flat out with her existing clients and managing the growing business, so is not taking on any new clients. At Clarity we only hire the best people to help you with your wellbeing and sessions can be made with one of the following talented Clarity practitioners:
Amazing. Such wonderful, welcoming staff. Will definitely be back.
The massage and service was wonderful. It’s great to find a local massage place that I like. Thank you.
Amazing! I had a horrible twinge in my back and it’s gone completely now! I was told all these horror stories about remedial massage but I was pleasantly surprised, so relaxing!
I have been visiting Clarity Massage since they opened, and it’s been wonderful to see how many gorgeous staff they have added in just a few short years (to keep up with the overwhelming demand!). This is a truly holistic practice that exudes charm and calm in equal measure. Not to mention the immense skill and knowledge of the practitioners. You’ll find yourself in safe hands at Clarity!
Everyone is super friendly, the atmosphere is relaxing and the treatments are excellent. Also, the tea is delicious 🙂
Would absolutely recommend the Clarity team to anyone who has aches, pains or just everyday stresses! As a hairdresser I don’t always look after my poor back as well as I should but after a session I always feel a million bucks, as well as being well informed on what to do at home in between my next visit. A million thumbs up!
I came to Clarity for some remedial massage sessions on my legs and feet initially but now I use this time for whatever needs attention. This could mean by back or neck or it could just be a relaxation massage. I remember the first time I walked in and there was a feeling that this was a place you could relax and that you were going to be cared for by all staff. I now have great connections and feel very confident in recommending friends and family to Clarity – they are very skilled in what they do but more importantly for me – they have my trust.
What I really like about Clarity Wellness is that they really know their stuff. Right from the first appointment I was impressed by the quality of service they provide. Sarah has such a great wealth of knowledge about the field. I’ve been to a lot of different massage therapists over the years before discovering Clarity and Sarah is definitely in a league of her own. The treatments I receive at Clarity are a big part of keeping my body functioning as it should be. I own multiple businesses, have young children and lead a very active life so any problems with mobility just aren’t an option for me. Heading over to Clarity regularly means I don’t have any major issues with muscles, joints or mobility in general so I am able to get everything done that I want to. I’m a big believer in the phrase ‘prevention is better than a cure’. By seeing Sarah at Clarity every month, that is what I’m doing; I’m constantly preventing issues.
The way I see it – we are so much better off maintaining our health and wellbeing rather than waiting until something “breaks” before we gives ourselves a second thought! My recipe for staying on top of my physical and mental well being is a regular yoga practice (did you know that’s why I called my studio “Yoga Garage”? A place to tune up your Mind, Body & Soul…..A tune up is much better than an engine replacement!!!!!!) and regular massage. At Clarity, the environment is just right, nourishing in fact. It’s located just back from the street front, so it’s nice and quiet, the decor is lush and warm, but more importantly Sarah and her team are just wonderful. I always come away feeling calm, relaxed and nourished and look forward to my next visit! It’s the little things that make Clarity special, a warm room – and a warm massage table (so nice on cold days), soothing music and scents, and most importantly, intuitive massage – Sarah always seems to know what’s needed. Running my own yoga studio: YOGA GARAGE and teaching up to 18 yoga classes a week, it’s super important that I look after my body so that I don’t feel worn out or end up with an injury. Regular massage helps me to continue to do what I love – share yoga practice with others. I believe yoga is a gift we give ourselves every time we step on the mat. Whether you are 3 or 103 – there is a practice perfect for you!
I would HONESTLY visit Clarity everyday for a treatment if I could!!! The space is soft, calm and cosy, the therapists ridiculously talented and nurturing and the entire experience instantly relaxing and holistically amazing. And, the attention to detail at the little things make the time feel like a ‘spa treatment’, all while healing your body and mind. Soothing sounds and scents, herbal tea, soft towels and eye masks. The staff at Clarity all work their own form of magic on the kinks of your body with their healing hands, and will arm (**) you with useful information for stretching at home. You’ll walk out with a stress free body, a clear mind and a countdown to your next appointment. My tip – always book the next one in advance! ** No pun intended with the use of ‘arm’. Wink x
Sarah is amazing!! A must go to for all your massage and relaxing needs. I highly recommend Sarah and her team. Go on book a massage now!!
Thanks to Sarah from Clarity for my amazing treatment today. It's been a long time since a practitioner talked to me about answers and explained everything while she was treating me. Exercises, relief and honesty. Feeling amazing.

It was so amazing and serene for me. Katie was so amazing. Am so proud of Katie and Sarah for learning Auslan to communicate with me, which make it more special. Will come back and make it a regularly bliss place for me. Love their palace, so relaxing and so perfect set up. My daughter went also for her first massage and she loved it, she had it done with Chantal. She want to come back!! To be honest its the best massage I ever had!! Highly recommend this place (love ♥ ♥)
I have just experienced an excellent massage with Katie Kinniburgh. She has exceptional skill in releasing trigger points. She was very thorough and explained the process in a knowledgable and professional manner. She is also very personable and enthusiastic. Thank you Katie I walked out about 2 inches taller!
I’ve been seeing Katie Kinniburgh for a few months now, I absolutely love Katie’s style of massage which is a combination of lovely firm pressure with assisted stretch. I have a chronic back complaint with a lot of associated muscular tightness & pain. Katie’s intimate knowledge of anatomy enables her to locate the exact points to give me much needed relief & comfort. She’s a really lovely person too, so that’s an absolute added bonus! I will definitely keep coming back for more!
Such a professional ,relaxing establishment. Totally loved it. The warm welcome. The tea. The fragrance when you enter. And then there is Katie .. Katie with the magic hands. What a fabulous massage, I had Remedial and the improvement in my shoulder is such a relief. Definitely the place to go again and again ...and I sure will be.
Wow! Thanks for the most amazing hour long pregnancy massage. Probably one of the best massages I've ever had. It was so nice to lay on my belly on the special table, and work through some of the pressure points. Katie was amazing! Highly recommended. I've already booked my next one!

“Change happens through movement & movement heals.” Joseph Pilates
Julia is a Polestar certified Pilates Matwork instructor in constant awe of the transformative power of movement. Initially taking classes to alleviate general aches & pains, she found Pilates to be much more than a system of physical exercise; rather, an holistic approach to whole body health & wellbeing:
“Joseph Pilates referred to his method as “the complete coordination of mind, body & spirit.” It’s not just about ‘going for the burn,’ it’s about how you feel on all levels; physically, mentally, emotionally, & beyond. It is a dialogue – a connection – between all aspects of self. You can tell what is working, what isn’t, imbalances in the body, mental blocks, emotional pulls… Pilates offers the willing student precious moments of self-reflection & an opportunity for self-improvement. The exercises don’t necessarily become easier; as you progress you delve deeper into the nuances of each & learn how they relate to, & build upon, each other. Pilates is a continual process of refinement.”
Julia teaches a style of Pilates that progresses small, isolated movements into full body integrative sequences. Emphasis is on technique & precise movement, with the ultimate aim of establishing efficient movement patterns which then carry over into everyday life. Classes are engaging & immersive, with changing choreography & options for modification, allowing you to work at your own level of challenge. Expect to feel taller, stronger, lighter & more confident in your own skin.
Julia teaches Mat Pilates on Saturday mornings, 8.30am – 9.20am. To book your class, head here.
Steph Stack is a Polestar certified Mat Pilates Instructor who identifies strongly with the holistic and integrative nature of Pilates. As a qualified naturopath, the seamless integration of physical, mental, and spiritual health is not only a goal for Steph personally, but one that she seeks to support her clients in accomplishing, too. Steph believes that Pilates provides the perfect balance of challenge, development, concentration, and relaxation to nourish the body and the mind, but is also a chance to have a good bit of fun and get that sweet muscle burn too!
“Pilates became the form of exercise that I could always come back to regardless of my level of fitness, because the nature of it intuitively guides your body to seeking restorative challenge and balance. It’s an enjoyable way to become connected and engaged with your body, but also notice effective change which carries through to your every-day!”
