"I chose Therapeutic Elements after meeting Chris Clarke through our BNI group where he has an amazing reputation in massage therapy. I have had an injury in my left shoulder after using new equipment at the YMCA for my workout. Each day for about 2 1/2 weeks the pain and limited mobility increased. After Chris did therapy on my shoulder I regained full range of motion and freedom from the stabbing pain. I really was amazed!! I got concerned it wasn´t real but one week later I still have a pain free shoulder. I´m certain that Chris´s goal for results and excellent knowledge base in this field is how he helped me in such a short amount of time. Thank You Chris!!!"
- Jane Ann Dampier, Odessa, Fl.
“I choose Therapeutic Elements because of others testimonials. I had a double knee replacement 7 months ago, my recovery went well but I still had trouble standing from a sitting position. On the day of my massage Clay had to help me out of my car and into his place of business (also needed assistance out of the chair). After my massage/stretching I was a new person!!! I was walking better and needed no assistance getting out of a chair or into my car!!! I'm still a work in progress - I feel much better after only 3 sessions with Clay. My range of motion is 100% better! Clay is very knowledgeable and professional young man! He truly cares about his clients asking how they are feeling when he is treating you. Thank you so very much Clay and Therapeutic Elements for all you've done for me.”
- Janeane K.
“AMAZING!! Chris takes time to understand your body's aches, pains, injuries, before even beginning a massage. I've never experienced a massage therapist that cared so much about my body's needs! Whether you're in pain or want to just relax, I high recommend Therapeutic Elements Center for Massage Therapy to those in the Tampa Bay area!”
“Met Clay Tobin at BNI and had heard some excellent testimonials. My daughter is a college soccer player who was suffering from extreme knee pain. Clay diagnosed the problem being in the muscles surrounding the knee and so we scheduled three massage sessions on the legs. After the treatments she went from being limited to playing 5-10 minutes before to being able to play a whole game with virtually no pain on the knee for the rest of the season. The office is comfortable and the therapist, Clay Tobin, was very professional. Thanks so much.”
“I used to be a race car driver in Europe. Sore muscles and body tensions were part of my everyday diet. I have been in a lot of different therapeutic hands through my career and Therapeutic Elements gave me one of the best massages I've ever experienced. Those hands are worth an oversea detour!”
- Vanina Ickx
“I had once received a massage as a gift from a boyfriend years ago until I was referred to Therapeutic Elements because it was close and the person who referred me knew Chris, in fact they were in the same complex. Before I even met Chris I was impressed by the amount of help he offered my boyfriend when he asked him about my health issues. I have never had someone who I'd never met go out of their way to help a stranger like that before. He even printed off websites for foods and more homeopathic methods to cure my ailments. I went to Chris shortly after to find him very calming and professional. Two weeks after my first appointment, I was in a car accident. Chris immediately was able to identify the problems and where the most of the pain was compared to that of two weeks prior. I have now been seeing him for over a year. He is great about getting me into appointments at short notice, helping relieve pain, calming me and most importantly making me understand what really is happening with my body and how one pain refers to another. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone who is also suffering from pain and anyone who enjoys massages for relaxation purposes.”

“Dear Chris, This is to THANK YOU for allowing me to live again without pain. I have never been a fan of massage therapists but after meeting you I determined you were more than a massage therapist. Even after our talk I reluctantly came to you expecting never to come back. I had a one hour session scheduled and during it I felt like toxins were leaving my body. My lower back began to loosen and the pain that I have been feeling for over 20 years was dissipating. It felt so good I asked if the session could last longer. I immediately signed up for your program and after a few sessions I was able to bring my sessions down to once per month. Thanks to you I can get up from a chair and tie my shoes without pain. While these tasks are simple for most I have lived with pain for 20 years. Thanks for giving me back my life. I was in pain so long I forgot what it felt like to be without pain. THANKS AGAIN!” -Johnny D., Palm Harbor Since my car accident that happened over 18 years ago I need to have therapeutic massage to relieve pain resulting from soft tissue damage. I've received massages from many therapists over time and Chris is by far the most knowledgeable about this type of injury. For the first time ever, I experience immediate relief from pain and increased range of motion from Chris’ therapeutic massage. I am so thankful to have found Therapeutic Elements and Chris."
- Melinda Strickland
"Hey Chris, I am feeling markedly improved since last night's session. I actually could bend my head back last night in the tub without effort and pain for the first time in weeks. I also read on yourwebsite about putting a pillow under the knees to try and stay sleeping on the back. I was more comfortable in that position than I ever remember being and slept almost all night that way. Can't thank you enough. Looking forward to the next session. Thanks!"
- Christina Harrison
"When my doctor suggested massage therapy, to relieve the pain from a herniated cervical disc, I chose Therapeutic Elements because of the credentials of the therapist. For the first time in three months, I have relief from the nerve pain and numbness in my shoulder, arm and hand. I will continue my therapy and highly recommend this massage center"
- Joanne Shirah
"As a massage therapist, it is difficult to find another LMT that has the caliber skills, wisdom, and intuition that isn't complacent in their trade. I have found, in Chris, a professional who is kind, humble, and extremely skilled in his field. I had a motor vehicle accident a year and a half ago, leaving me with residual soft tissue damage that only massage and acupuncture helps. The first appointment, I was greeted with humble energy and most of all, professionalism and feeling of immediate comfort. Correct assessment, and in depth knowledge for my condition, he was able to work areas that I was even unaware would be related. I feel better each time I have a massage from him. I am grateful for the healing he has helped further facilitate for me. My pain scale went down from 7/10 to a 2/10, increased ROM, and I slept so well for a week and a half after. Thank you Chris for being an amazing massage therapist, and a great person. May your business always be blessed."
- Cindy Berard, LMT
“After seeing the success my daughter had, I wanted to see if Clay could help me as well. I had shoulder pain and a lacked flexibility in my neck. Clay planned a massage treatment focused on my problem areas.After the session I felt very relaxed and had amazing relief and flexibility in my neck and shoulders. There is a very nice atmosphere in the office and I would highly recommend Clay and Therapeutic Elements. Thank you!”

I'm an injured service member. Took some pretty traumatic blows to my legs and back about eight months ago. Hanna's the first and definitely the only therapist I will allow to massage my legs and back. She was delicate enough as not to further aggravate damaged nerves but thorough enough to still work out some very serious post injury tension. Hanna's knowledge about the human anatomy helped answer some questions I had about tight muscles and lower back pains. She's given me advice on what I can do on my own at home to help ease the sciatic nerve pain that is constantly an issue now. Hanna's a great massage therapist with a wealth of knowledge that will be essential to her clients comfort, therapy, and rehabilitation if they are injured. Once I return back to Florida for good I plan on using her at least twice a month! Absolutely no-one can compare!
Life on the go takes its toll on the body! I've been getting my massages from Hanna since she was starting her career. My time with her is everything my aching body and tired mind need. Hanna has always made it a point to listen to me and give me exactly what I need to get back to feeling great! She is knowledgeable and professional, and I recommend her to everyone I know!
I get my treatments from Hanna very often where she performs a therapeutic massage. I started seeing her twice and week and have been able to lessen my visits to about every other week. She has helped me with numbness in my arms which I can say has improved by 90 percent. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Proficient in Medical Massage
After herniating 3 discs in my lower back I went in search of a massage therapist that could help me with sciatica and numbness in my leg. I had already tried the run of the mill essentials and massage envy and was not entirely surprised when they could not help. I went in to my first massage with Chris with severe nerve pain down my leg and numbness and tingling in my calf and foot. Every time I stood up the pain and tingling would start immediately. There was also only one position I could lay in and be comfortable and he was more than accommodating. By the end of my massage I had minimal pain and when I stood up I still had very minimal pain and no tingling for almost an hour, the longest break I had had in two months! He also took the time to show me stretches that would help and referred me to a place to get X-rays. He reviewed them and determined I had one leg longer than the other and a lift in my shoe would help with my pain. He then gave me a card to where I could get the lift I needed! Throughout the duration of my injury I was also really struggling to sleep at night. The doctor prescribed me Valium which only afforded me 2-3 hours of sleep on average. After my second appointment with Chris I went home and slept for 7 hours straight through with no medication, the first time in 3 months. Needless to say Chris really knows what he's doing and is very passionate about his business, his career, and most importantly his clients. I have already referred my mom to him for reflexology and she was more than pleased and has her next appointment scheduled. I am looking forward to my next massage and continued service to prevent this injury from reoccurring.
Thank you Chris Clarke
My sessions with Chris Clarke has been life changing. I have had Reiki sessions before but not like this. These sessions have came at a perfect time because I have been so heart broken, depressed, and on medication for depression and anxiety. The anxiety has been debilitating, and currently I am not work, and I have been having a hard time finding the confidence to do job interviews. After the 1st session with Chris, everything fell into place. I started looking at a location to work, and talked to the staff. I made peace with relationships that need closure. Also, how I react now to a difficult situation surprises me. I would be quick to anger or frustration, and had to stand my ground. Now, I can listen to people and really hear what they are saying. I have found a peace, I am calm, and not frustrated. What Chris has given me is a gift that has changed everything for me. Chris has helped me find peace.
I enjoyed the massage Andrea gave me today. I had instant relief after the massage. I definitely will return for more massages in the future!
Extremly Healing & Caring
I have had regular massage by Andrea at Therapeutic Elements for almost six months now. I suffer from degenerative disc's and sciatica pain. Andrea has researched best methods and stretches to offer relief and I am experiencing fantastic results. I have found Andrea to be very passionate about her profession, and have always felt that I received her very best effort during my massage. As a note, I have been to many therapist's over the years, and Andrea is at the very top of the class.If you live anywhere close to Palm Harbor, I strongly recommend booking a massage with her!
My husband bought a couples massage for my birthday as we have physical issues of our own, combined car accidents, disease processes and many hours on our feet. I had no idea what to expect but can I say Kristi Gabriel is amazing. I didn't give her a lot of direction to go in on what hurt or how bad. She found every little stiff, soar, aching spot that I had. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to relax and feel better physically!! Thank you! What a perfect way to start my birthday! (I will be back)~
Amazing massage by Andrea!
I had a full body massage done by Andrea, and I feel like a new person! Her hands worked magic on my stubborn knots and sore spots. The doTERRA oils smelled so nice and left my body feeling smooth as a baby's bottom :) I will definitely be returning and bring my fiance with me, thanks Andrea and Therapeutic Elements!!!!
Insightful treatment for true healing
Chris has been the solution to the ongoing migraines I've been experiencing that a long list of specialists over many years tried to solve. I am forever grateful for the whole-body approach he takes to determine where the issues are. Going from daily migraines to an occasional migraine and being able to do my four-mile walks again is such a relief. I am so very thankful!
Massage and advice
Chris is very knowledgeable about how body mechanics work. I have had many massages, but this appointment was not only relaxing, and relieved pain, he took the time after to answer some questions I had about some long term issues I have had. (For women- I almost never get massages from men, I was very comfortable w Chris, hes more like seeing a doctor who actually makes you feel better without the drugs. :)
High quality service
Andrea always does an excellent job. I leave feeling so much better every time.
The best massage
I have had 2 massages per month at this place for the last two years and they are the best. I'm still amazed at how they are able to locate and relax all of my pain points, even the ones I didn't know I even had.
Knowledgeable and professional
I have been suffering from shoulder pain for quite some time and it had begun to limit my mobility. I searched for a masseuse in the Tampa Bay area for quite some time and have been disappointed each time. Then I found Chris through a Google search. Just had my first session and I feel amazing! He asked questions to understand what I was dealing with and then with the skill of a true professional worked magic. I have mobility and my pain is gone. Already scheduled my second session. Chris has just gained a lifetime client! Thank you for giving me my quality of life back!
Very professional and thorough too areas of concern
I was very impressed with the hand pressure and dedication to the Harry is of concern
Professional, Quality & Friendly Service
I have been a completely satisfied customer of Therapeutic Elements for over a year now. I made an appointment for my first visit to relieve neck and lower back pain and that's exactly what was achieved. Andrea is no doubt extremely qualified for her position and over the past year has listened to the issues of what is going on with my body and addressed them accordingly. She thoroughly explains the reasons for my aches and pains, and guides me on what to in between my treatments to limit them. She makes sure I am always comfortable with the pressure of her massage and I walk out of each session feeling considerably better than when I walked in. I also know I can call "off appointment" and she will do her best to accommodate my need for treatment.
So good it put me to sleep
Not only did my neck have more movement after a wonderful massage,the massag relaxed me so much that I fell asleep. Wonderful massage and I can't wait for my next one. I bought the buy three get one free. Awesome deal. Works out just a little over $50 per hour long massage. Take advantage of this deal before it's over.
Amazing neuro-muscular massage
I was in a car accident about 4 years ago and started to see Chris at Therapeutic Elements. His care was one of the only treatments that left me feeling better and able to move my neck without pain. I highly recommend him to all of my friends and family.
High quallity service, professional, friendly, experienced
Therapeutic Elements is a place that I will definitely refer anyone who is looking for a place that is both healing and relaxing. I stumbled upon this place after looking of a massage center close to my home, and I didn't realize how lucky I was until after my first session. I was experiencing head/neck/back pain and Chris was able to find the source of my discomfort. Most importantly, I had glands that were swollen on my neck from a previous illness. Even after getting better, my glands were still a bit swollen. I tried numerous products to help with no results. With Chris working on my neck and using his techniques, my glands have returned to normal and my neck pain has subsided tremendously. It wasn't until I found relief that I realized just how long I was living with my discomfort! I'll definitely go back again.
AMAZING!!! Great massage
I love coming over to Therapeutic Elements Center for Massage Therapy - so much so that I drive almost an hour to get my massage. I have been coming over for years, and I plan to continue. THANK YOU!
Individualized Massage Therapy
I did a lot of extensive research before choosing a massage therapist to go to. I am glad I did! Chris is extremely knowledgeable and individualizes his massage plan every time you come in. He starts off asking what your problem areas are and the next time you come in for another session he tweaks things depending on what may be bothering you now. He also explains what he is doing thoroughly in a way that makes sense. My headaches have decreased tremendously and my problem areas have definitely loosened up. I'm an RN and I have noticed that my body isn't as tense as it used to be. Thank you Chris!
Top notch service
Andrea is great. Well worth a visit for a massage.
Chris is an excellent, knowledgeable and professional massage therapist, who's passionate about the art of healing through natural resources; massage. I've experienced annoying, persistent and painful issues with my jaw for over 12 years, and slowly I'm noticing improvement in my symptoms after a few visits with Chris. Also, I deal with occasional neck and back pain, from sometimes failing to use proper body mechanics at work. I always receive relief from these pains, after a session with Chris. Additionally, I wholeheartedly believe in complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM) for healing. As a nurse, I care for patient's every shift who deal with loads of pain. Recently, there is much talk in the healthcare community in regards to the health benefits of CAM, including massage, when it comes to dealing with pain. Specifically, massage is making its way into the plan of care for nurses, with articles populating the most popular nursing journals. I'm a huge advocate for massage, because I believe it's a great alternative to the loads of pain meds patient's receive. Often times these pain meds don't fully cover the pain, and then only provide more issues, with side effects in tow. Massage is something I've incorporated into my practice, and a resource I recommend to my patient's who experience pain. I used to be a "once a year" massage client, until I found Therapeutic Elements. I care for others everyday as a mom and a nurse, but in order to continue to provide excellent care to my family and my patient's, I care for myself as well, through massage. As a result, I feel better physically, and I'm on top of my game, ready to give the best of myself. Thanks Chris!
Great job Christopher! he did a great job pinpointing my troubled areas. Do recommend him, please check him out.
I've seen Andrea twice now, once when I was around 38 weeks pregnant and now that I am 4 months post partum. The pregnancy massage was great, made sure my big belly and me were nice and comfy, did it with caution due to possibly going into labor early (even though I wouldn't have minded haha), but even then it was still refreshing. This second time was even better! After the massage and you start to waking up some more you feel very refreshed. She worked out all the kinks and I don't know if you like conversation during a massage, but I do, and she was very easy and open to talk to. Even explained a lot about the massage and I personally love learning new things! If you don't go regularly prepare for your muscles to hurt the next day, but that just means she did a great job getting it all out. Sad I'm moving, I'd love to come back to her again!
Absolutely the Best Massage Ever
Was able to get in the same day, the massage was the best I've had in my 46 years. As a writer I spend time hunched over a computer.As a Sales Consultant I spend even more time on my feet. The stress,aches and pains were gone by the end of my session.
I attended a Back/Hip stretch class with Chris. It was truly amazing...the relief was immediate. I exercise regularly and end up with soreness or stiffness that I can eliminate when I do the stretches that I learned from Chris. His teaching method is hands-on and simple with illustrations to explain what you are doing. I highly recommend any stretching class Chris offers.
My wife and I recently had a couples massage with Andrea and Chris. We were impressed with the knowledge and skill of both therapists. You know, sometimes you just get a rubdown and you leave disappointed. With Andrea and Chris, you get a targets therapeutic experience that leaves you feeling physically refreshed and healthier. I risk making it tough to get an appointment here but would recommend these folks without reservation.
Terrific deep tissue and trigger point work
I came into this appoint after having drove over 1,000 miles for the weekend. My neck, back, & Shoulders were a mess. Andrea did a wonderful job of hitting the trigger points and the deep tissue work was fabulous.
Professional friendly, knowledgeable
One of the best massage experiences I have ever had. I feel the muscle knowledge of my therapist was exceptional. He listened to my issues and knew exactly what I needed.
My massage here was incredible. If I lived in the area, I would be a regular! Andrea worked out all my kinks. I could hardly turn my neck when I walked in, and I walked out feeling loose and relaxed. Highly recommended!
I went to many different massage therapist looking for someone to do a real deep tissue massage. I am pleased to say I finally found someone. Andrea was very strong and informative. I made my next appointment before I left. The pain I was experiencing it gone now.
Professional and friendly
I have been having massage therapy treatments for years for chronic neck and back pain. I have had numerous massage therapists treat me and I think Andrea is one of the best. She applies just the right anount of pressure to relieve spasms and I was very relieved to find her in Palm Harbor where I was visiting for one month. She made my holiday more enjoyable because I had less pain. and now can face the long drive back home Up North. Marilyn
Very friendly and professionel
I have had many massages before, but this was one of the best I have ever had. I have a lower back problem. Andrea concentrated on that area for quite a while. That day and the next , I could see a big difference in my back. With that being said, I will be back soon and request Andrea! Thanks
Great Massage Therapist
I came in with a pinched sciatic nerve and told Chris. He showed me what causes this and ways to fix the issue and to eliminate it coming back. he went to work on it and the pain resided. He also showed me a few exercises to help with other minor issues that he found. Very knowledgeably and professional. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone.
I have been going to Therapeutic Elements for about a year now and always get a good massage. Andrea has done wonders for my bad back.
High-quality service, professional and friendly.
I filled out the required forms, and explained to my therapist the problems I was experiencing. The massage was tailored to my specific needs, and I was extremely impressed with the level of knowledge and expertise demonstrated by my therapist. Upon completion of the massage, I was able to maintain full range of motion in my shoulder without experiencing pain. I was actually able to tie my shoes without feeling the usual pain...something I had not been able to do for the past three months. Needless to say, I would certainly recommend therapeutic elements to anyone looking for a professional, high-quality massage.
Serious about feeling better
I have a very stressful job, and working with Andrea helps me so much. I have a couple of chronic spots, and really aim for relaxation and overall wellness. Her work absolutely helps me reach this goal.
Andrea is awesome, amazing and attentive, making her a true asset to therapeutic elements. A++! She listens to her clients and focuses on what they need.
I'll never go anywhere else!
I've been going to Chris for 5 years now. He is night and day from any other massage therapist I've tried. Very knowledgeable, professional and really caters to specific problem areas. Watch out, you'll get addicted to how much better your body feels.
I have traveled to some of the finest spas throughout the country. Andrea did an amazing job executing a deep tissue massage. She was professional, informative and effective!. I feel soon much better. Would highly highly recommend .
I just found a therapist with magical hands, Andrea is passionate about the art of massage. I've been going for massages for over 20 years for aches & pains associated with my physically active lifestyle, Andrea ranks up there with the best of them!. I highly recommend her to my friends and family , she has brought instant relief to my aches. Andrea I hope you get to read this, you are deeply appreciated. Thank you, Sidney (FDNY)
