Rachael Baggallay, owner of new Muscle Needs Myotherapy Eaglemont, has over ten years experience in the field. She has held clinical and corporate positions working with elite athletes from Melbourne Storm Rugby. Upon a friend’s advice, Rachael sought out Eaglemont Village for her clinic and hailing from South Gippsland she was instantly attracted to the village feel!
Muscle Needs Myotherapy’s opening coincided with the Eaglemont Village Twilight Fair and Rachael was ‘overwhelmed with support from the friendly locals’.
Rachael gains satisfaction from healing people and through myotherapy treats the cause and symptoms of a wide range of muscle and soft tissue conditions.
Working with Rachael is Amrita Bassi whose passion for Myotherapy arose through her brother’s uncanny ability to get injured whilst training and competing for Australia in Freestyle Wrestling. Amrita had great exposure to professional athletes whilst working with Melbourne Victory.
Catering to all ages Muscle Needs Myotherapy will assess, treat and manage musculoskeletal conditions, which may cause muscular dysfunction and pain thus affecting movement and mobility. Some treatments used include deep tissue massage; trigger point dry needling, cupping, thermal therapies electromechanical stimulation (TENs), myofascial stretching and corrective and rehabilitative exercises.
Rachael advocates myotherapy can reduce recovery time and risk of injury and increase performance and wellbeing. Some conditions they specialise in are neck and back pain, pre and post natal, headaches, sciatica, disc injuries, arthritis, repetitive strain injuries, tendonitis, whiplash injuries, tennis elbow, knee pain, frozen shoulder, poor posture, plantar fasciitis and sports injuries.
