Australia’s leading provider of physiotherapy and related services - Back In Motion Health Group is taking its unique clinical approach and proven franchise business model to New Zealand.

The Group will launch its first four locations in New Zealand in mid-2017 under the brand, Motion Health Group New Zealand.

Motion Health Group will be led on-the-ground in New Zealand by physiotherapist Andy Ross. Andy has been the successful Director of PhysioOne, a network of physiotherapy practices in Auckland, for more than 13 years. Andy’s four locations will be the first Motion Health locations in New Zealand and he expects the network to expand rapidly in the coming years. 

As Australia’s first and most successful allied health franchise, Back In Motion Health Group has transformed the provision and delivery of physiotherapy services in Australia. The company enjoys an enviable market-leading position in allied health, employing over 600 staff across more than 100 locations in all states and territories of Australia.

As well as providing quality, clinically proven and holistic treatment to 400,000 people every year, Back In Motion provides a platform for physiotherapists to develop their career as clinicians as well as business and community leaders. Practices within the Group consistently grow beyond industry expectation with average practice revenue three times that of the physiotherapy industry average.

Back In Motion Executive Lead Andrew Hilson said it was an exciting and proud time for Back In Motion Health Group.

“Expanding to New Zealand is an amazing opportunity for Back In Motion and is a direct result of our ability to grow in response to consumer and practitioner needs, continually innovating our franchise model, as well as the success and commitment of our franchisees,” Mr Hilson said.

“Together with Andy Ross, we aim to reinvigorate the delivery of health and wellbeing services in New Zealand just as we have in Australia.

Back In Motion Group Director Jason Smith said the move into New Zealand hailed a new era for Back In Motion allowing the Group to capitalise on new opportunities for influence and growth.  

“We are a unique success story and we pride ourselves on our philosophy of care Results4Life® which focuses on providing sustainable results for optimal lifelong health,” Mr Smith said.

“We encourage any practitioners in New Zealand interested in franchise opportunities to get in touch for a confidential discussion. Take advantage of the opportunity to get on board!”

Motion Health Group will officially launch in New Zealand mid-2017 with four locations in Auckland, with the network expected to expand across the country in the coming years.
