How the inner smile is good for your health & mental wellbeing! The smile is one of the most powerful energies of personal power. The true inner smile is the smile of total happiness and mental wellbeing. It is not a social smile, but one that rises from deep within the cells and organs of the body. According to certain Daoist self-cultivation masters, it is said that when you smile, your organs release beneficial secretions, which nourish the whole body and can make a difference to your mental wellbeing. That basically means that smiling...

The where, why and how to protect your health It is important to protect your health during Autumn, Winter and Spring.

During Spring and Autumn we usually have weather that may fluctuate from warm to cold in short spaces of time, which the body finds challenging to adapt to. It’s in these 3 seasons of the year that...

Hi all! Renee here, your friendly shiatsu massage therapist at tonika health. We all know that modern life is stressful. Our demanding daily lives, the fast paced and overwhelming urban environments we live in, the widespread insecurities of the covid pandemic. These things can unsurprisingly throw us out of balance, create high stress levels that build up over time, and eventually cause disharmony or 'dis-ease'. Stress does creeps up on us over time, often manifesting in minor symptoms like fatigue, racing thoughts at night and digestive discomfort. But it can also...

This time it is Daniela writing to you. I hope you are doing well and are finding your (new?) routine in this changing world. Personally, I have certainly done a lot of thinking over the last few weeks and months. So today I have an announcement: As of the end of this financial year, I will resign as the manager of tonika health and officially hand over the reins of the business to our acupuncturist Peter, who has been working as part of our team for a year and a half...

As we head into the coldest part of the year, I want to chat to you about how you can best nourish yourself, including your immunity, during this time. There are many things you can do to support yourself and make the most of the season. I've been thinking about the best sort of resource I could provide to help you with this, and I've decided that this blog post sums it...

A quick post to let you know that massage is available again. The NSW Government clarified on Friday 17th April 2020 that therapeutic and remedial massage are allowed as essential services.

Please note that these appointments are for acute pain or discomfort only.  We still recommend that you hold off on general wellbeing massage for now because we still all have a responsibility to decrease any potential spread of the virus via physical distancing wherever possible. If you're unsure if you should...
