The Team

Lina Del Testa

I am a qualified Remedial massage therapist with over 20 years of experience specializing in sport and pregnancy massage. In addition I am a qualified nurse with 10 years of experience working in UK and Australia. I am passionate about empowering people to take control of their health by approaching it from a holistic point of view.

Astrid Diercks

My elaborate qualifications in physiotherapy and clinical massage and hydrotherapy in Germany is still serving benefit to clients every day. I have been in practice full time for too long to mention, the passion is as vivid as ever and there is so much more to learn and to do. As director of POND Massage and Melbourne Lymph Drainage Centre I enjoy the demands and challenges of assisting people with their often tricky health issues, as well as running a business with a great team of practitioners and conducting my training courses.

Lauren Rotar

I have trained and qualified as a Remedial massage therapist 7 years ago and since upgraded my skills in Manual Lymph Drainage therapy, Foot reflexology and Matrix Rhythm therapy. I also work with SLM bodywork. I enjoy assisting clients with both short term and chronic health issues and injuries, enabling them to regain movement and decrease pain. My work at POND Massage expands from office management and course coordination to treating clients in my skilled modalities and I really enjoy all tasks associated with a private clinic environment.
