Whether you’re an elite athlete or a weekend warrior, tonika health can help improve your performance, nutrition and body. We provide specialised support for athletes including masters and are proud to be looking after several successful sportspeople. Daniela was a medal-winning sprinter in state, national and international competition so, as a sports therapist, she understands and addresses the needs and concerns of athletes.
Both Kate and Daniela have expert training in sports nutrition. Kate’s easy, yet specific style will immediately convince you that performance through eating is a very real part of sporting competition. We can advise you on exactly how to adjust your diet for performance or taking the right supplements to achieve and maintain your ideal body composition and keep you fighting fit.
Specialised deep sports massage and osteopathic treatments can free locked muscles, ease recurrent soreness and realign your body. We can design a treatment specifically for you to achieve fast, effective relief from injury or symptoms while correcting underlying biomechanical problems. We’ll also give advice on posture, ergonomics and corrective stretches and exercises. You might get something extra out of your body, scrunch crucial seconds and centimetres in performance, and lessen frequent injuries or fatigue that interfere with sport.
We can also monitor your body fat and muscle mass with advanced bio-impedance analysis, which is far more accurate than body composition scales.
“The massage treatment provided by Daniela assisted greatly in my recovery between training sessions, allowing me to train harder and more often – this was a significant factor in my successful bid to break the Masters 3 World Pursuit Record in early 2010 and ever since. I also benefited greatly from the general health and dietary advice – thanks Daniela! I think massage therapy should be a part of any serious athlete’s regime.”
"After years of training consistently and slowly chipping away at my goals, I came to realise that age is catching up and I would need to do that extra bit to get to my goals quicker. Had a chat to Daniela. She did some tests and made suggestions for me. I followed these religiously and basically got to train harder and ultimately within a short time got a personal best of all time at the age of 44 in the 100m and 200m. A couple of years later I finally achieved my ultimate goal to become World Champion in my age group. So thanks to Daniela for a simple solution and a fantastic result."
“Daniela has been a real big driver for my own attitude as well as health and nutrition the past few years and she has enabled me to reach my potential through her holistic approach to health. She has helped me fill in the gaps with my diet and I have no doubt that she is a mass contributor to my success. I believe she is the X factor for myself to become an even greater athlete.”
“Ever since I have started being treated by Daniela from tonika health in 2009, my results in major championships have improved exponentially. I really believe that Daniela’s holistic approach to her treatment, which involves for me both massage and naturopathy, has provided me with the last few percent I feel I was missing in my preparation and training. I have recommended Daniela to several other cyclists and they too are happy with their progress as a result.”
