Functional Testing
Functional Testing

Tonic Room practitioners draw on a wide range of functional tests to assist in providing the best health outcomes for their clients.

As each person is unique in their biochemical make up, some cases require further investigation in order to gain a full understanding of all possible causes for the presenting condition. Results from tests offer valuable information regarding biochemical, nutritional, metabolic and hormonal imbalance that can assist your practitioner in determining the best individualised treatment.

Tonic Room offers both on-site testing as well as functional pathology testing available from leading Australasian and international laboratories.
