Daniela Osiander – Sports Therapist, Naturopath

Neck pain and headaches | Athletic performance | Therapeutic massage

IMPORTANT NOTE: Daniela is now only taking on new clients in her special area of neck pain and headaches. To keep her limited availability to those she can help the most, you cannot book her appointments online. If you have been struggling with neck pain (or are a returning client of Daniela’s), please email or call us and we will do our best to fit you in.

In the meantime, we highly recommend to book in with our other remedial massage therapist Eiko, shiatsu massage therapist Renee, or acupuncturist Peter. All of them are very well qualified to help you with neck pain and headache as well as a host of other issues. And they will certainly refer you to Daniela if this was the best approach for you.

Thank you for understanding!

As the founder of tonika health, Daniela is proud to have created a professional, sustainable and ethical practice with a sensational team of practitioners. She is realistic, direct and caring. What gives her the most satisfaction are the notable improvements we can achieve for our clients , often in a short time.

Daniela combines over 15 years of clinical experience in naturopathy, sports therapy, nutrition and different massage styles with genuine care, a good dash of common sense and intelligent advice. As a sought after massage therapist, she is gifted at treating neck pain and foot and hand problems. Her naturopathic passion is digestive health which in itself has far reaching effects on energy, mood, mental health, allergies and your general wellbeing. Daniela is focused on building your resilience and takes a strong stance against over-diagnosis, over-prescribing and any kind of unnecessarily restrictive diets. Learn to look after yourself without making it overly complicated!

In another life, Daniela was a successful producer of animal documentaries and travel shows for TV all over the world until being headhunted as a senior executive for a national German broadcaster. But after 15 years of hectic media life, she decided that real success needs to look differently! A sabbatical in Australia followed, which lead to making Sydney her home – and a new life centered on natural health.

Above all, Daniela loves to make a difference: to people, to animals, and – if possible – the world. She brings this passion into everything she does. Her experience as a successful 100, 200 and 400m sprinter helps in her work with both elite and casual athletes. As a lecturer, her students love her ability to inspire and break down complicated topics into memorable images.

Daniela is a licensed volunteer wildlife carer with WIRES, the Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service NSW, and an animal observation volunteer at Taronga Conservation Society. And in her spare time you might spot her walking her two cheeky rescue dingoes.

Daniela is proud to have created a beautiful practice that is honest and friendly, where you can heal, feel better, address anything from niggles to longstanding problems. Our goal for you is to be able to do the things you love and which really matter to you with health. You’ll appreciate the no-nonsense approach and the genuine care for you that Daniela has made tonika health’s signature style.
