Manuela King

Maneula KingManuela graduated in 2010 as a Remedial Massage Therapist from Paramount College in Perth.  Since then she has extended her knowledge to offer professional help for people who suffer from chronic illnesses.  Manuela did her postgraduate training in Oncology Massage through the nationally accredited 'Oncology Massage Training' which led her further into studying Manual Lymphatic Drainage with the internationally acclaimed ' Dr Vodder Akademie' where she graduated at the Vodder Clinic in Austria in 2014.

She then studied SCENAR with RITM Australia where she completed all 3 levels of SCENAR therapy and became the trainer for WA in 2018.

Manuela will assess the person's needs depending on the presenting medical history and may combine various modalities to achieve the best possible outcome.

"I believe that any therapy is most effective when science and intuition are combined to achieve an individual approach for each person.  No two people are the same, therefore no two treatments should be the same.  A deep tissue massage can be wonderful for one person yet for another, it can have an undesired effect.  It is up to the person and the therapist to find techniques that suit and can be helpful in dealing with specific health challenges."

Reflexology is a science based on the principle that reflex areas in the feet, hands and ears relate to the internal organs and other structures of the body. In reflexology pressure is applied to these reflex areas to bring health and balance to the body through the stimulation of its own inherent healing capacity.
