Alison (Ali) qualified in 2013 from the UK having previously completed a degree in Sport & Exercise Science. Using her education and passion for exercise, she has focused on sports physiotherapy and rehabilitation, and takes a special interest in children and adolescent sports injuries.
As a physiotherapist and aspiring sports person, she loves combining both aspects of her training to enable clients to achieve their goals, whether it’s returning to elite sports or daily activities. Ali likes to focus her treatment on movement rehabilitation, strength and conditioning and manual therapy, alongside her other qualifications in acupuncture, taping, and soft tissue massage.
Outside of work she is a keen Ironman triathlete, hoping to make it into the elite/semi-professional rankings within the next few years. Ali also loves the outdoors and any new sport she can try her hand at, which is why in August 2016 she moved to this part of the world and joined the Body In Motion team.

My day consists of treating a variety of patients, all with unique reasons for needing physiotherapy. I specialise in the treatment and rehabilitation of musculo-skeletal injuries and getting straight to the point. I believe that energy goes where energy flows, which is why in each treatment everything is done with purpose.
Some of you may have met my son, Winston, the Schnauzer-Jack Russell Prince of Tauranga. My passions in life include spoiling Winston, enjoying flat whites and caring for my fantastic patients along their journey of healing.
Erica was specially imported from Canada to work at Body In Motion because of her people-centred approach, not to mention her lovely Canadian accent. Erica is the first person you will meet when you come to our High Performance Clinic and her positive, calm and caring welcome will make you feel better instantaneously.
Erica’s sparkling eyeshadow matches her sparkling personality and we are so fortunate that she is a member of the Body In Motion Team.
Tracey has lived in this little piece of paradise called “The Mount” for 18 years (the beach is her Happy Place), and have loved working for Body in Motion for the past 3.5 years.
Tracey is blessed to be a Mum of three lovely daughters (& Marlee, the chocolate labradoodle). Having lived in London for 8 years, she have been lucky to experience amazing adventures through Europe and Africa.
Her passions (apart from family and beautiful friends) are surfing, supping, skiing, yoga, biking, summer and camping in her 1989 VW Westfalia – her pride and joy! We look forward to seeing you at the HPC soon.

Julie graduated as a physiotherapist in 1984 in Auckland and followed up with post graduate qualifications in Sports Physiotherapy in Perth, Australia a few years later. She has worked for many years in adolescent sport and rehabilitation but loves to work with all ages to reach their sporting or lifestyle goals, using manual therapy, exercise prescription, pilates, acupuncture and education.
Always keen to keep fit, Julie is a runner, stand up paddleboarder, yogi and pilates instructor. The kids have grown up and left home, leaving more time to walk the dog, garden and pursue her love of travelling. Having recently made the move across the bridge to live at the Mount, it was time to relocate physio work to this side also, hence the decision to join the Body in Motion team.

Hi, my name is Paul Cameron, but I am most commonly known as ‘Shorty’ (which, of course, has nothing to do with my height). I was a part of Body In Motion at it’s very beginning (many years ago) but then my passion and expertise in Rugby led me to work as the lead physio at the Waikato Chiefs as well as travelling with NZ Rugby 7s and attending The Rugby World Cup with the Georgian Rugby Team.
I am now back at Body in Motion and although I still am involved with rugby my favourite pastimes are spending time with my family, camping and caravan-ing and being keenly competitive whenever Body In Motion has a fancy-dress competition.
