Meet our Practitioners
Dr. Marcus Tomassoni
Dip Chiro, B.App.Sc. (ND) (TCM), PGDip (Acu) (Hom) (Hyp) (MedHerb) (Biomesotherapy) (Aesthetic Medicine)
Dr. Marcus Tomassoni is one of the few chief Integrative Medicine Practitioners who has specialized in a variety of modalities at a post graduate level both within Australia and overseas.
Dr. Marcus is third generation health practitioner. He graduated in the 1970’s with Acupuncture, Chiropractic and Naturopathy as the three initial modalities which would prove to be his cornerstone treatments in holistic healthcare.
Dr. Marcus believes that a person’s health is determined by the inter-relationship of genetics, living circumstances and environmental factors, psychological health, nutritional strength and the correct alignment of the muscular-skeletal system.
Over his years in Practice, post-graduate courses of study (both in Australia and overseas) support and reinforce his firm belief that a clinician must have the capacity and the tools to assess and treat an individual with the specific purpose of rectifying health problems and bringing a return to, and maintenance of good health and zest for life.
To this end, other modalities include:
Advanced Extremity Manipulation– An advanced technique involving the corrective treatment of painful ‘joints’ due to structural misalignment.
Aesthetic Rejuvenation– A non-invasive aesthetic treatment for rejuvenation and anti-ageing. Including skin needling, aesthetic acupuncture, mesotherapy, and medical-grade laser treatments.
House and Hospice visits are offered to his most senior patients who are too infirm to visit the Clinic.
