THE Muscle Treatment Clinic in Wonthaggi
offers soothing and relaxing remedial massages
that work wonders in relieving pain and stress.
Whether it’s a sore muscle or footy injury, Pat
Wishart has the trusted hands, employing mus-
cle manipulation and massage to heal ailments.
Starting his massage career in 1996 with trig-
ger point acupuncture and remedial massage,
Pat operates out of the Muscle Treatment Clinic
“It was always something that I was inter-
ested in. I was involved in a bit of massage for
football, then learnt sports manipulation and
muscle manipulation,” Pat said.
“It’s always good to see people improve with
their wellbeing and their injuries over time, and
to see them heal and feel better.
“We do a lot of sports injuries, but as well
as fatigue from people working in offices and
being on the computer who get neck pain and
“We offer exercises and tips to relieve that
Remedial massage involves deep tissue work
to treat muscle tension or chronic pain.
A remedial massage therapist will assess where
you need treatment and what’s causing your pain.
Conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel,
stiff necks, headaches, sports injuries and
more can be treated with remedial treatment.
Massage can be an important part of recover-
ing from an injury or illness.
“When treating injuries, we’ll look at the
whole aspect of the injury. Is it swelling? Is it
muscular? Is it an issue with the tendons?
“All these factors are important when consid-
ering the best treatment for an issue. We can
use massage and muscle manipulation, as well
as heat and ice.
“All of these work together to mobilise and
help heal an injury.”
After years working in the industry, Pat said it
almost becomes instinctive what to do and how
to treat someone correctly.
The Muscle Treatment Clinic offers an array
of services as well as remedial massage. It’s a
great, quiet location and the facilities have a re-

ST JOHN Ambulance (Victoria) is urging
all Victorians to get their flu vaccination off
the back off new research released by the
Following a particularly severe 2017 flu sea-
son, which saw 2.5 times more reported cases
of the flu in Australia from the year prior, and
200 reported deaths in Victoria attributed to
complications from the flu; the research has
found that Victorians are still taking a relaxed
attitude towards vaccination. In particular:
• 40 per cent of Victorians do not believe that
the flu vaccination is necessary
• Only 38 per cent of Victorians have been
vaccinated against the flu in the past 12 months
The research also uncovered the extensive
impact that cold and flu symptoms are having
on Victorians, their families and their employ-
ers. In particular:
• 85 per cent of all Victorians have experienced
some type of symptoms in the past 12 months
• Nearly a third of Victorians (29 per cent)
have taken two or more days off work due to
cold and flu symptoms in the past 12 months
• Victorians miss out on an average of 1.8
days socialising and/or engaging in family ac-
tivities due to cold or flu symptoms.
St John Ambulance Victoria CEO Gordon
Botwright said that the importance of flu vac-
cinations cannot be overlooked.
“We saw the impacts of the flu hit a wide
range of the community last year, so the time to
get vaccinated is now to ensure that the impact
is lessened in 2018.
“Flu vaccinations are designed to protect Vic-
torians, so we want to encourage everyone to
get one before flu season comes into full swing,”

BASS Coast Health recently donated old and out-
dated medical equipment to Rotary’s ‘Donations in
Kind’ project, for use in developing countries.
Although the equipment no longer meets Aus-
tralian service requirements, the equipment can
make a valuable and meaningful difference in the
lives of people who are genuinely in need overseas.
BCH’s equipment will be taken to Rotary’s Do-
nations in Kind warehouse at Footscray and then
shipped to the Pacific Islands and Timor Leste.
Bass Coast Health’s (BCH) director of Sup-
port Services Lynne Winterburn said advances
in technology and improvements to patient and
staff safety requirements mean that BCH needs
to periodically assess and update its equipment
when funds become available.
“This enables us to donate some of the out-
dated equipment that we no longer use.”
The last time BCH donated its outdated
equipment to Rotary around five years ago, it
filled an entire shipping container.
The recent donation consists of old style hos-
pital beds, medication trolleys, a physiotherapy
table, walking frames, walking sticks, over-toi-
let seats, wheelchairs and other pieces of occu-
pational therapy equipment.
BCH CEO Jan Child says the health service
is glad to see the equipment go to a good cause.
“We are thrilled that our unused equipment
can be given to those who can put it to great use.
“’Doing good in the world’ is one of Rotary’s
mottos and we’re happy to contribute in even a
small way towards their great work.”
The Donations in Kind project began around
50 years ago when Australian Rotarians began
hands-on projects overseas and it became obvi-
ous that surplus material in Australia would be
