Tonia has had sixteen years of wide experience as a Massage Therapist and Reflexologist. She has combined raising a family, with self employment as a Massage Therapist, training for Triathlons and Duathalons, with three relevant diplomas in Remedial Massage, Reflexology and Anatomy and Physiology.
Tonia is a current and active financial member of Massage NZ which ensures ongoing training and professional recognition.
She enjoys working as a remedial therapist, often to relieve pain, which is commonly caused by work stations, poor posture and over-use of the body.
Tonia uses trigger point therapy and manual lymphatic drainage which assists with healing of sports injuries and also lymphodena, which assists the body to drain unwanted fluid.
Reflexology is a favourite modality she likes to use. With reflexology, pressure points are applied to the feet, to remove toxins from the body. It helps increase energy and decrease stress. Some common ailments successfully treated are:
- Asthma and other respiratory disorders
- Stress and fatigue
- Menopause and other reproductive disorders
- Digestive imbalances
- Body aches and pain, and many more
Tonia is passionate about her work, with a active interest in using massage therapy and other techniques to assist athletic performance and everyday stress levels and well-being.
She is really enjoying working from a multi-disciplinary health clinic, with experienced Osteopath, Shaun Hogan, D.O. at Hogan Osteo Plus, who also has a strong interest in sports performance and general well-being.
Tonia is married with two children and is a keen and competitive local Triathlete.
