Hello, I’m Sare, Clarity’s proud Mamma-Bear! My focus is passionately on the direction of Clarity and the development of our magnificent team, in service to the whole-hearted wellbeing of our cherished Clarity Community.
Outside of the wonderful world of Clarity, I am: Mamma to Hugo Lewie, avid reader, wannabe writer, relentless philosopher, clinical aromatherapist-in-training, amateur singer, banana bread addict and music lover.
Clarity was born back in 2013. After my own experiences of major surgery and rehabilitation, during much of which I felt lonely and misunderstood, I had a vision of creating a centre which offered truly holistic, individualised care. I dreamed of a space with services and treatments which are effective and evidence-based in an environment which is genuinely nurturing, supportive and provides you with a sense of comfort and safety. A space of professional therapists of varied backgrounds, with big personalities and genuine passion for their craft, where change, healing and ease happen (as well as a decent number of belly laughs!).
My more recent experiences with childbirth and the postpartum period have further cemented the passion to maintain a space which serves as a truly nurturing “home” for our clients to have their needs tended to, in a compassionate and caring way.
My dream for Clarity has always been that when you visit, you feel a bit like you’re coming home, or perhaps visiting a very dear friend. That you feel comfy to come just as you are and know that you’ll be welcomed warmly. That you can snuggle in for a cup of tea and know that your individual concerns will be seen and listened to, by someone who genuinely cares. It is my sincerest hope that Clarity provides you a safe space to feel wholly yourself, where you can ease your discomforts, soothe your stresses, move your body and clear your mind.
A Remedial Therapist of >11 years experience, Sarah’s focus nowadays is on the direction of the business and training our fabulous team. She is not currently treating clients.
At Clarity we only hire the best therapists 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.
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.
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.
Hello, I’m Courtney and a remedial massage therapist at Clarity! Born and raised in Victor Harbor, I grew up by the beach and played basketball, netball and football, which I continue to play today. A fun fact about me is that when I was 10months old my family moved and lived in Japan for almost 3 years, so the country has a special place in my heart.
Growing up active, I often suffered from muscle tightness. But as massage was so foreign to me, I was scared to ever receive one. Finally, my Dad introduced me to a local therapist, and I fell in love with it instantly. From that moment on, I became a huge advocate for massage, became intrigued by our anatomy, and decided I too wanted to provide a safe, welcoming environment where people new or shy towards massage can enjoy their treatment, and fall in love with it. Just like I did.
Hello! I’m Bec and I’m thrilled to be back with the Clarity fam. I love all things anatomy and physiology, learning new concepts about how the body functions to better understand how I can look after mine and help my clients look after theirs. When I’m not massaging, I love eating good food with great people, reading fantasy books, trying new brunch or coffee spots (like the millennial I am) and soaking up the sun at the beach with my border collie Casper 😀
After completing my Bachelor in Health Science (Nutrition and Dietetics), I felt like my study was incomplete (and probably always will be!). I have always had more active jobs in my life and wanted try out manual therapies. Massage was the perfect option. I enrolled in my Diploma and fell in love with it. I love being a part of creating a space where someone feels safe and nurtured – this is a privilege I never take for granted. Also, unexpectedly, massage is something I reap the benefits of as it calms my mind and gives me a sense of peace.
Hey there, I’m Letizia! I’m a wife, (soccer) mum to two beautiful boys, a beauty therapist and as of this year a qualified remedial massage therapist. I love nothing more than being home, with family and friends and my dog 🙂 I have an interest in anatomy and art and would love to one day learn how to paint, draw and make pottery. A not so secret, secret of mine is I have an obsession with pyjamas! And I love the sky- clouds, stars, the moon and winter sunsets are my fave!
It’s simple really…I love it! I believe in the benefits of massage for our mind, bodies and souls. I believe massage should be part of our healthy lifestyles and not just a ‘treat’. Having anxiety myself I know how much massage can help to be grounding. My passion is to educate my clients on the effects massage has proven to have. Our bodies are an amazing piece of machinery which holds the most precious of all beings, our energy. Massage not only works on the muscular system, but with touch therapy I work on the nervous system as well, sending all the good stuff (happy hormones) to your brain, leaving you feel relaxed, lowered stress, depression and anxiety and giving you a sense of Clarity.
You can expect a firm treatment as is necessary for the problem, but approached with warmth, sensibility and deep listening. I encourage feedback and work with clients to find the perfect middle ground between effective pressure and comfort
Hi I’m Rob!
While I tend to gravitate towards reflection & spirituality and love a good meditation session, I also have an adventurous spirit and like to break my own mould. Outside of Clarity I am a professional guitarist and singer, love to spend quality time with friends and family, have an insatiable enthusiasm for techno music and dancing, think nature is pretty special, love learning about life and the world, and am constantly thinking about travel, festivals, and all the life experiences I have to look forward to! I can talk to almost anyone about anything and enjoy having my perspective widened. Looking forward to meeting you!
I was born into one of those bodies that seems to be sore and injured by default. After a long journey and thousands and thousands of dollars spent trying to get out of chronic pain with varying success, I decided that it was time for me to learn for myself and take the experiences I’ve gone through to help others. While I’ve never had any major injuries, I’ve experienced almost all of the aches, pains, and strains you could imagine and know exactly what it feels like to have these things negatively affect my quality of life. I come to my work with empathy and understanding from lived experience, and strive to reduce fear and encourage & empower clients to become self-reliant with pain management and feel hope that things can get better with time – as has been so important to me on my journey!
Hey there! Welcome, you’ve come to the right place and you’re in good hands. You’re a click closer to dissolving your tension in the sanctuary of Clarity. My name is Jura. I am a Remedial massage therapist. Outside of this practice I like a laugh and a boogie!! I travelled and lived around the world for 10 years. I have a deep love and appreciation for this planet, its diversity, people, food and old worldly things. I am always up for a spontaneous adventure and I would like to share this journey I am on, with you, to help you reach your wellbeing destination.
You might not know this yet, but you need me to knead you!! Combined with my love for connection, the human body and the wildly fascinating nervous system, I endeavour to expand my knowledge to provide the best massage experience. I bring with this a happy, warm and caring energy. I believe that good health and good people can not only help the human race but also heal our planet, and this is my way of giving back.
Hello! I’m Naomi but you can also call me Nomes. I studied at the Australian Institute of Fitness back in 2016 to become qualified as a remedial therapist and have been doing it ever since. I love to spend my free time with family and friends. I’m also a big fan of camping, 4×4 and traveling.
I love to help people achieve a pain free and relaxed body, maintenance is key! Massage isn’t only for the body but also the mind and soul. My passion grows when I see clients feel better, show improvement and leave with a smile on their face looking forward to their next appointment. Makes me realise I love what I do. I’m able to be firm but also making you feel relaxed at the same time. I can also be gentle if that’s more your cup of tea.
Katie is a strong and nurturing practitioner with many years experience.
Katie is a firm believer in the power & healing qualities of massage for both body & mind. “It’s so important that we take time out from all the main distractions & responsibilities we have in our lives, to tune in & listen to what our bodies are telling us”.
Katie is passionate about trying to help people feel better in their bodies, whether it’s increasing range of motion, destressing from a hectic week, relieving headaches & neck pain or recovering from injury.
“Everybody tells a different story, so it’s important to me to find their perfect approach for each individual and provide a tailored treatment plan that meets those personal requirements and goals”.
Hi, I’m Amy! I’m warm, vibrant & am energised by music, beauty and contrast. I love great company, great food, writing, design, dancing and the outdoors.
The healing arts have always been deeply important me, and the modality of massage allows me to participate in the convergence of intuition, intellect and the basic magic of Human Touch. I’m fascinated and awed by the various relationships within the biosphere of an individual’s body, and am passionate about working to ease dysfunction and restriction within it, be it physical, emotional or within the Subtle Body.
In a treatment, you can expect a calmly held, nurturing space, and an effleurage pressure that is medium to firm. I love to treat the head, hands and feet; back pain; and the ‘I don’t know! I’m just sore everywhere’ feeling. My hands listen carefully and quietly, and when they find the spot(s) they get to work in a systematic, restorative manner
Thanks Clarity and especially Katie. I love a good firm massage that really gets into those tight muscles and most massages just don’t do anything for me. I was wonderfully surprised when Katie was able to really get into my muscles and leave me feeling refreshed and more flexible. I will back next time I am in Adelaide. Once again thanks Katie.
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!
Hey! I’m Elicia. I have a strong love for summery beach days! I live in the Adelaide hills with my dog, cat and chickens and my partner Mike. I love playing with home design, dancing and growing food. In my slower moments you will find me in front of the fire listening to a health related book or podcast.
I have always been interested in alternative treatments, from a young age I saw how my parents used different techniques to help or heal different ailments. Myself, I have found amazing relief of migraine and headaches by using massage, stretching techniques, acupuncture and kinesiology. This encouraged me to be more conscious of my body and to pass on the knowledge! This is what lit the fire inside me, to help others who may be suffering with pain or stress related issues. I also have a strong interest in energy and the affects thoughts and emotions can have on the body.
Hey there, I’m Steph! You’ll see me around Clarity working my magic as a remedial massage therapist. Outside of massage, I work at a family-owned café honing my skills as a barista; whilst balancing my health with netball, yoga and Pilates. Given my Italian background, it’s no surprise that I’m a foodie. I love travelling and chasing the sunshine on road trips with my friends.
Helping people manage their health has always been a career I’ve been interested in and now I have the opportunity to pursue that dream. The truth is, I didn’t know Remedial Massage Therapy was the right path until after high school when I started studying. The amazing responses post treatment from clients that my massage actually makes a difference to their wellbeing, aspires me to continue growing in this holistic industry.
