Tim Clark is the remedial massage therapist at Time & Space Therapies. He holds a Diploma of Remedial Massage and is a member of the Association of Massage Therapists.

He always aims to maximise both the physical and mental health benefits of massage, recognising that the mind and body heal better when they work together.

Tim’s massage is ideally suited to people experiencing:

  • depression or low mood,
  • anxiety,
  • stress,
  • fatigue,
  • low self-worth,
  • poor body image,
  • chronic pain, or
  • generalised muscle pain or ‘tightness’.

Tim tailors his style to the specific needs of each client, and is known for his sensitivity to levels of pressure, his focus on the present moment, and his calm, positive demeanour.

The term ‘remedial massage’ typically refers to a massage treatment for a particular problem, and involves pre- and post-assessment, a treatment plan developed in collaboration with the client, and application of evidence-based techniques. This is the type of massage for which private health rebates are available.

Important note

Tim does not offer massage therapy to clients who see him for counselling. Concurrent massage therapy and counselling at Time & Space Therapies is strictly prohibited. Among other things, this helps to:

  • maintain clear professional boundaries,
  • maximise the benefits of the work, and
  • maintain a more balanced power differential.

In certain circumstances, at the therapist’s discretion, clients receiving massage therapy may transfer to counselling, on the explicit understanding that they will not be able to receive massage therapy from that point forward. Generally, clients who request counselling will be encouraged and assisted to seek counselling from a different practitioner.
