There’s a huge difference between what most people think of a massage – a relaxing rub-down that you might have on holidays – and the therapeutic massage that is tonika health’s specialty. The massage you get from us actually does something: it has results, it heals your body and there is a positive outcome that goes beyond momentary relief.
tonika health’s owner Daniela Osiander is a Sports Therapist with over 15 years experience. She specialises in firm, deep tissue work and myofascial work that releases your muscles from their dysfunctional holding patterns. She can also use a technique called ‘dry needling’ to effectively relieve problems from tightness, pain or injury in specific areas. Your massage treatment will focus on specific problems such as aches and pains, but also help correct the underlying cause of them.
In addition to the massage, you’ll often get specific advice on posture and the way you position yourself while working or doing activities. And where appropriate, you’ll get realistic and meaningful stretches and exercises specific to your problem that will help correct it.
With over 10 years’ experience, Daniela combines training in a wide range of massage styles – remedial, Swedish, sports, Chinese, myofascial release, trigger point therapy and reflexology – to bring you relief and healing. She continuously updates her knowledge and is particularly gifted at treating neck pain, loves solving problems with feet, hands and forearms, and gives massage aimed at improving athletic performance.
Our goal is to achieve the best outcome for you – as fast as possible.
And obviously, Daniela’s treatments are covered by our tonika health guarantee: Get better in three treatments or your money back (50% to you and 50% to a charity of your choice).
"I can absolutely vouch for and recommend the services of Ron. He knows his stuff, shares information and advice very clearly and is able to identify quickly where the problems are and approach them in a manner that is considerate of your own levels of tolerance and comfort. Professional and a good manner about him and certainly made a positive difference to my well being since I've been seeing him."
“What amazes me is your skill. I walked in a cripple and came out fine.”
"I've been seeing Ron for roughly six months now, and without his help and work I would not have been able to achieve the flexibility and range I currently have. Ron manages to balance being friendly and talkative with the upmost professionalism too. He has been receptive to my problems. Giving me a range of stretches and movements to incorporate into both my workouts and daily routine. Which have helped to address issues I have had for years. Ron is always very receptive to my input whenever I see him. Working specifically on the areas which I have indicated as being most problematic. Which really helps realign my body and relieve stress on problem points."
"The pain in my arm is completely gone. You’re a genius."
"You are definitely the most professional massage therapist I ever met."
"I had been recommended to go see Ron through a work colleague of mine. Having trouble with my left knee the past 6-8 months, Ron was immediately able to source the problem, perform release work and also offer me exercises to add to my current training. My appointment lasted nearly 45 minutes and not one topic or question I needed answered was rushed. This gentleman is a true professional and just loves doing what he does. I would have no hesitation recommending him to any colleague or indeed client of mine in the future."
"I have been seeing Ron for a few months now to help support stressed, tired and tense muscles. Ron adjusts his massage much more specifically to my problem areas than other massages I have had, and I always feel much better afterwards. Highly recommend!"
“The massage you gave me was the best massage I've ever had. The pain has subsided tenfold. You are magic!!!!!!”
