Matt Heavyside

With over a decade of experience in the physiotherapy biz, Matt knows a thing or two about movement health. His mission is to bring movement to the forefront of the health industry.

For too long we have been reactive, and not using enough movement in rehabilitation. He wants to bring that to an end and take action before our bodies are broken.

Matt loves surfing and anything adventure. Playing with his kids is now his favourite way to move and stay active.

Ultimate dream. To help everybody through MOTUM.

Tahlia Wall

Tahlia Wall

Tahlia is a physiotherapist and lover of all things movement! She knows what it feels like to have a ‘broken body’, after being in a cycle of chronic pain for several years. It wasn’t until she started her own movement journey that she understood how her body was designed to move and how good it could feel.

Teaching MOTUM is the perfect way to share this knowledge with others so they can experience the same success.

Tahlia believes that – the ability to move freely in your body can change your life!

As a Physiotherapist and dancer, movement means everything to Amy.

She’s a super bendy human and MOTUM has matched this flexibility with strength and stability to create a body that is resilient and pain-free (most of the time!).

With a passion for helping people to set and achieve their own movement goals, she inspires our community every day to move better.

Amy loves how versatile MOTUM is and helping her patients MOVE and FEEL better.
