Mafalda is a qualified Reflexologist and Massage Therapist who has undergone extensive training in the field of massage therapies and incorporates into her work across a wide range of modalities.
Mafalda has a special interest in the general wellbeing of a person especially in the area of people coping with cancer and its associated treatments, chemotherapy and radiation. Her unique approach is to tailor-design a treatment for the individual needs of a person and often combines two or three therapies in the one treatment in order to achieve the desired results.
Her work has taken her far and wide including Ian Gawler’s Living Centre at Yarra Junction and several Melbourne-based clinics. Mafalda is currently a Volunteer Therapist at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in East Melbourne. Mafalda has presented on topics at the Gawler Foundation, SBS Radio and the Box Hill Hospital Cancer Support Group. Her mission is to help people find a state of equilibrium and wellbeing and to help them find their true path in life.
Mafalda, who has a background in Music, found her passion with reflexology after many stressful years of tertiary administration posts, including concert management. A minor accident led her to a lifestyle change and awareness that with guidance from the Universe, one is one’s own healer. While most of her training took place at the Australian School of Reflexology and Relaxation (ASRR), the Australian School of Awareness (ASA) and the International School of Bowen Therapy (ISBT), Mafalda has a constant quest for adding new dimensions in her life by continuing her professional development with new studies with local and international instructors. Mafalda has completed her Diploma in Remedial Massage and is registered with HiCAPS which may enable you (depending upon your health fund) to claim your health care rebate back immediately after your consultation.
