Alicia's passion and childhood dream of playing cricket in Australia brought her down under approximately 5 years ago. Prior to this, she has enjoyed the privilege of living and working in India and New Zealand (cricket loving nations). Alicia has completed the post graduate diploma in Musculoskeletal physiotherapy and a master's degree in Manipulative physiotherapy from University of Otago, New Zealand.

Her experience so far (in India New Zealand and now Australia) includes treating individuals from all walks of life/cultures and age groups pursuing different professions. Holistic in her approach, she specializes in the assessment and rehabilitation of movement patterns, relative to an individual and their profession/ hobby and assists in injury prevention. She uses a range of manual therapy, movement re-education and specific exercise rehabilitation techniques to try and establish more optimal movement patterns. Her area of interest lies mainly in managing athletes (cricket, soccer, netball, tennis, golf, baseball, basketball, swimmers, athletic- running. shooting, throwing events), musicians and dancers.

Alicia currently enjoys playing premier cricket and beach handball in summer and indoor cricket, bouldering, camping and hiking in winter. In addition, she practices meditation, yoga and Tai chi/ chi kung to further improve the mind and body connection. Lastly, if time permits, she enjoys photography, astronomy, creative writing and reading anything related to the working of the human mind and body.
