We hope that you're going well and adapting to this 'new normal'. One thing that this situation has shown us is that we're all more adaptable and resilient than we realise. We've also been adapting at tonika health to ensure the we can continue to provide you with top notch healthcare. So this is just a short post with some key updates about massage and acupuncture at our clinic. Most importantly, our fabulous massage and acupuncture practitioners are all available for appointments again, and you can book an appointment online here. As usual, Daniela is only available...

A quick post to let you know that massage is available again. The NSW Government clarified on Friday 17th April 2020 that therapeutic and remedial massage are allowed as essential services. Our fabulous massage therapists - Ron, Fei and Daniela are all available for treatments. You can book an appointment online here. Please note that these appointments are for acute pain or discomfort only.  We still recommend that you hold off on general wellbeing massage for now because we still all have a responsibility to decrease any potential spread of the virus via physical distancing wherever possible. If you're unsure if you should...

In light of unfolding information and advice, we've made some important changes to what we're doing at our clinic regarding COVID-19. It's an evolving situation and much remains uncertain. Therefore, this is how we're currently deciding to act, which may of course change in the coming days and weeks. As always, your health is the most important thing to us and our decisions below are based on this. As we said in our last newsletter - we know there's a sense of fear and worry around the world. But just as...

Hey everybody, it’s Ron from your family of therapists at tonika health. It seems almost everybody is an expert on something these days, especially health and fitness, and almost anything can be found on the internet. So I thought I'd share some insights (personal and professional) about how to gain clarity, purpose and direction with your health...

Hi there, it’s Ron, the infamous massage therapist, from team tonika health in Surry Hills. I want to share with you a simple technique that's helped countless patients alleviate challenging moments in their lives. I’m sure you’re all familiar with the phrase ‘fight or flight’. It refers to the sympathetic nervous system, as opposed to the parasympathetic nervous system (which is associated with the phrase 'rest and digest'). You see, when one of these systems is switched on, the other switches off. In today's world with constant stressors and stimulation, our sympathetic nervous systems are most often switched...

So that you can get to know our two fabulous new massage therapists, Ron and Fei, they've popped together a handy blog about back pain. Back pain is experienced by so many of our clients at tonika health, so we bet you'll benefit from what they have to say! (Side note - to find out more about these fabulous new additions to our team, check out this blog). Common causes of back pain Hi there, it’s the one and only Ron. I’m one of the new massage therapists here and I want...

What's green and growing and smiling all over? Our tonika health family, which has just grown by two new members! Yes, we know, getting appointments with Daniela has become ridiculously hard. We tried our best to clone her in our secret lab but alas, we didn't quite succeed. Seriously though, we've been looking for a solution for some time now. And not just any solution...

Hi there, it's Peter (tonika health's acupuncturist!). Today, I want to chat about making the most of autumn. All life on earth, up until recent times, has been closely synchronised to the seasons. Modern developments have enabled us to adapt and live more easily through the seasons, minimising seasonal impacts on our lifestyle, while plants and animals are still very much in harmony with the seasons. However, we can never take away our deep primal connections to the seasons. And how they affect the functioning of our bodies. In fact,...
