    Rebecca Rose

    Rebecca joined the BodyMotion team as a physiotherapist in February 2017,  after graduating from the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at the University of Melbourne.  In her previous career, she worked as a zoologist in both Australia and southern Africa before deciding to change careers and become a physiotherapist.

    Rebecca enjoys working with a wide variety of age groups; from children to the elderly, and has been working as a physiotherapist in the aged care sector since she graduated.  Rebecca has always had a very strong interest in musculoskeletal physiotherapy, with a keen interest in helping people with chronic pain conditions, such as chronic low back pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome.  She has previously worked in the research department of a pain management clinic, and still has a strong interest in research.

    Rebecca is qualified in teaching Clinical Pilates, and employs this method for helping her clients reach their physical and rehabilitation goals.  She has currently completed three certifications in the APPI Pilates method.  Rebeca utilises an evidence-based approach to her physiotherapy practice, employing a very hands-on and exercise-based approach to her physiotherapy practice, including manual techniques such as mobilizations, manipulations, soft tissue massage, trigger point therapy, and taping, alongside exercise-based rehabilitation programs.

    Always seeking to improve her knowledge, Rebecca plans to undertake further training in the areas of Clinical Pilates, and dry needling. Rebecca has experience in delivering physiotherapy-directed hydrotherapy programs, and is also keen to further her qualifications in this area of physiotherapy.

    In her spare time, Rebecca enjoys getting out in nature and spends a lot of her time with her many pets.  She enjoys keeping fit and active with horse riding, swimming, running, and cycling; being a member of a local adult riding club and a local triathlon club.  She also enjoys traveling, as well as dabbling in photography, and the creative arts.  She still has a keen interest in animals and continues to works as a fully qualified equine massage therapist in her spare time.
