If you have an injury or pain in a particular part of your body, we’re here to help. We can address those all too common pains. Do you experience issues in your back, neck or shoulders?

Rosie, our osteopath, uses gentle movements to realign areas of bone, tissue and the spine. This will help to alleviate pain and allow your body to function better. Osteopathy can be highly effective in treating sprains, strains, sports injuries, back injuries from heavy lifting, healing after fractures, car accidents and falls. You may be surprised at how valuable an osteopathic treatment with Rosie is. Similarly, you’ll discover the benefits of hands-on skilled manipulation of the spine and joints, targeted massage, and the stretching of soft tissues such as muscles and tendons.
tonika health doesn’t do standard same-routine-for-everyone massages or the relaxing rubs you’d get in a spa. That is to say, we specialise in therapeutic massage delivering results. We provide firm, deep tissue work and a technique called dry or myofascial needling help to relieve pain, fix injuries and help problems from tightness, pain or injury. Above all, our goal is to achieve the best outcome for you as fast as possible, by delivering the work of a highly skilled practitioner. We have a team of highly skilled and qualified massage therapists – Ron, Fei and Daniela. Unsure who to book with? Give us a call so that we can help you decide.
Acupuncture has been shown to have a positive effect on acute and chronic lower back pain, neck pain, plantar heel pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, postoperative pain, labour pain, cancer pain and more. Acupuncture also understands you as a whole. Here, the emotional, physical and psychological are intrinsically linked, and treating one inevitably impacts the others. This is great, because you can come in for knee pain but also leave feeling relaxed, happy and calm, as well as having an excellent result with your knee. Our acupuncturist, Peter, has over 14 years experience as an acupuncturist and Chinese medicine doctor.
It may surprise you, but nutrition and naturopathy can be very beneficial for addressing pain and injury. Here, there are superb natural anti-inflammatories that help achieve real results. Our nutritionist, Nina, can make an in depth analysis of your diet and other health factors to ensure your nutritional status is optimal, and provide dietary advice tailored to your situation. We may also provide specific supplementation options for pain relief, muscle health, and strength and repair of bone and tendons.
“I used to have a lot of aches and pains for no real reason. I think it actually affected both my sleep and my mood. Ever since I’ve been coming to tonika health the team has helped me so much – in a joint effort! Only now do I realise how much I had stopped myself from doing stuff before, out of fear of pain. You’re amazing – full compliments!”
"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'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."
"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!!!!!!”
