Hi there, It's Peter, tonika health's acupuncturist. I hope you're all well and staying warm with this chilly winter weather. Is it just me or does it seem to be more of a doozy than usual? Colder temperatures and more colds/flus going seem to be going around. Don't get me wrong, I love winter. But I think it's safe to say than none of us are fans of feeling run down. I want to tell you all about a simple, yet little known, technique that I love to ensure that you can...

Hi all! It’s Rosie, the osteopath at tonika health, writing to you today. I hope you’re all well and keeping warm in this ever unpredictable weather! I’ve been hearing two things from a large bulk of my clients recently, and they relate to exercise in winter...

Hi all, it's Nina the nutritionist at tonika health. I'm currently sitting here looking out the window at heavy rainfall and grey skies. Ah such typical winter weather! Don't get me wrong though, I do love winter with it's rainy days and cozy weather. After all, what could be better than wrapping yourself up in a blanket with a hot water bottle and a warm mug of hot cacao! A downside of this time of year, however, are the colds and flus that seem to run rampant. Luckily, there are...

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...

You get home from a long day and all you want is a bowl of ice cream. It's a week before your period and you can't stop thinking about chocolate. You've just had a sweaty session at the gym and you'd kill for something salty like chips. Or perhaps it's any other plethora of things. Regardless of what the craving is, I'm betting that we've all experienced them before! Sometimes, cravings are minor. Sometimes, cravings feel so intense that they're all you can think about, you may feel unable to...

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,...

'tis Rosie, tonika health's one and only osteopath! I don’t usually watch TV, but when I do…I watch the Kardashians or nerdy documentaries. There's usually no in between. However, I wanted to share with you something else I saw that interested me (and I promise it has nothing to do with Kimmy K). The show 'The Doctor who Gave up Drugs' was on one night, and I happened to flick over to see the experiment they were performing. Spoiler alert if you were hoping to watch series 1 episode 2...

Hi all! My name is Peter and I'm the newest addition to the tonika health team. As a registered acupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner, I'm so excited to have joined the tonika health family with Daniela, Rosie and Nina. To mark my commencement of my care of the Surry Hills community, I'd love to pass on an extremely powerful self care technique. Firstly, here's a little more about me.
