With a background in powerlifting and strength sports, Jack noticed there was a lack of quality health care tailored to the active individual. There was little understanding from health professionals on the demands that sports and strength training can have on the body and the advice available was often outdated or insufficient for the majority of active individuals.
This avid interest in strength sports combined with Jacks background in physiotherapy allowed him to develop his unique approach which combines traditional physiotherapy with exercise and movement. Thus Motus Health was born. The definition of ‘Motus’ in Latin is movement/motion and It is this definition that greatly defines the treatment approach at Motus Health.

Paul is a Remedial Massage Therapist with a keen interest in injury management and helping clients return to their optimum health and performance. Born and raised in Geelong from a medical family, Paul showed an interest in anatomy and physiology right through high school at St Joseph’s College, excelling in his musculoskeletal knowledge. This interest in the body and musculoskeletal dysfunction quickly developed and his education naturally progressed with him obtaining his Diploma in Remedial Massage Therapy in 2019.
Paul prefers to take a holistic approach with treatment, giving clients the best possible chance of recovery. He has a passion for tailoring his treatments to suit your unique needs and can incorporate any preferences you bring to the table (pun intended).
A bit of a sports nut, Paul has been involved in team sports since childhood. He represented Australia in the under 19’s World Junior Ultimate frisbee Championships held in Heilbronn, Germany in 2010. Since then he has been involved in trampolining, gymnastics, soccer, and most recently, indoor beach volleyball and yoga. Paul has experience treating a variety of different athletes and prides himself on his ability to assist in both sporting performance and injury rehabilitation needs.
Paul is also a manic Melbourne Demons tragic and still cries when the 2018 prelims are brought up in casual conversation at the pub. As a Melbourne Demons supporter, he is obviously a sucker for punishment, so feel free to dig into him on your first treatment with him!
