My name is Naomi and I am the owner of BodyTonic Massage Therapies in Nowra. I am passionate about helping people improve their lives through massage, better nutrition and great movement. I love seeing people perform at their best and lead pain free lives. I believe that investing in your health is the key to a happy and healthy life.
I began BodyTonic in 2003 as a massage only clinic. I was looking for an add on to my career in fitness. It seemed like a natural progression as massage provides such a valuable tool to helping those interested in increasing their sporting performance. It has since grown to include nutritional medicine. This gives the client a literal one-stop-shop for health!
Nutrition is an important piece of the puzzle to optimum health and fitness. Whether you are looking to increase your fitness, lose weight or address and manage other health concerns, taking a close look at how you are fuelling your body is integral to success in these areas.
Another important area of interest is Naomi’s passion for using massage as a tool for improving mental health. I completed my Diploma of Counselling skills in 2019. Many studies have shown that massage decreases cortisol levels and increase the production of serotonin and dopamine. This lessens the symptoms of depression and anxiety and is so beneficial to many other trauma and cognitive behavioural related conditions.
Naomi’s advice is based on her studies of natural medicine and counselling and comes from a naturopathic viewpoint. She believes that the best way to great health is a diet based on whole foods that are as close to the original intention as possible, a regular routine of results-driven physical activity and a healthy dose of balance and moderation in everything.
