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.
Over Dane’s 12+ years in the industry as a massage therapist, he has formed a unique style that consists of Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Trigger Point Therapy and Reflexology techniques, which he combines for his clients based on their individual needs. Dane caters for all massage requirements (remedial, general, sports, and relaxation) of his clients, however, if you are specifically seeking a firm massage, make sure you book in for an appointment with Dane!
Dane’s journey into the healing professions started at the early age of 6, where he started to realise his potential with his innate massage skills, practising on family members and friends, and cultivating and developing those skills throughout his formative years, culminating in studies at the Raynor College of Massage & Natural Therapies in his adult years. From there, he never looked back. With most of Dane’s family working in the health industry since he was born, you might say Dane was destined to be in the healing professions.
Our goal is to achieve the best outcome for you – as fast as possible.
"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."
“What amazes me is your skill. I walked in a cripple and came out fine.”
“The massage you gave me was the best massage I've ever had. The pain has subsided tenfold. You are magic!!!!!!”
"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!"
"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."
"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."
"You are definitely the most professional massage therapist I ever met."
"The pain in my arm is completely gone. You’re a genius."
