Nick Tsakonas

If anyone knows the endurance of rehabilitation following a sports injury it is Nick. As an avid sportsman he has endured 2 ACL reconstructions, shoulder reconstruction plus multiple muscular injuries. Through these injuries he met Mark Bevan 25 years ago who helped him through his rehabilitation process. Through his personal knowledge and experience Nick wanted to help others, so he completed a Remedial Massage Therapy Diploma in 2015, along with Cupping Therapy.
Nicks experience and knowledge has led him to work with elite athletes including NRL football teams Sydney Roosters, South Sydney Rabbits, Cronulla Sharks, and Dragons. He was invited to work with the NSW Cricket team and the Australian Woman’s Rugby League.
Nick assesses his patients holistically. He believes it is important to understand about their health, lifestyle and the injury. He sees Remedial Massage as a complementary therapy which aims to treat muscles that are damaged, knotted tense or immobile. The remedial massage can stimulate the blood supply make joints more mobile and help repair damaged tissues. When treating, Nick balances the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which restore the correct position of the bones, increases blood flow and help’s heal injuries.
Nick not only believes in treating the injury but believes in treating the whole body as one. When treated by Nick it starts at the head and finishes at the toe.
