Meet Carmen Baier: Your Partner in Recovery

Carmen loves living a full and multi-faceted life, and she sees physiotherapy as a powerful tool to empower her clients to do the same. Her passion lies in health behavior change and how habit and behavior modification can greatly enhance your quality of life and community health.

Carmen is fascinated by the whole-body movement system and the role that habitual movement and postural patterns play in preventing injury and pathology. Her goal is to provide treatments that not only address your immediate concerns but also enhance your overall well-being, lifestyle, and experience.

Tailored and Holistic Assessment:
Carmen takes a holistic and individualized approach to physiotherapy. She believes in the power of understanding your unique needs and circumstances. Through thorough assessment, she tailors your treatment plan to ensure that it aligns perfectly with your goals, whether that’s returning to the sports field, excelling at work, or simply enjoying life pain-free.

A Diverse Background:
Carmen’s experiences have shaped her approach. Growing up in rural Zimbabwe instilled a deep love for the outdoors and wildlife. She recognizes that embracing an active lifestyle in harmony with the environment adds an extra layer of richness to life.

Carmen’s love for travel, culture, and people has taken her around the world, practicing physiotherapy in diverse settings. Exposure to different cultures has deepened her appreciation for classic literature, art, and design.

Advocacy for Health Care Access:
Carmen is a firm believer that everyone should have better access to healthcare. She recognizes that prevention and health behavior change are key to achieving this goal. Carmen has taken courses in health behavior change, behavioral psychology, and online content delivery to better serve her clients.

Credentials and Expertise:
Carmen Baier is a highly qualified and dedicated professional. She graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2009 from UP (University of Pretoria). She holds a post-graduate certification in Orthopedic Manual Therapy (level 1, SASP) and continuously pursues additional education through regular courses. Carmen is certified in the Functional Movement Screen Level 1 and 2 and is recognized as an Exercise Is Medicine Health Care Professional. She is also trained in Matwork and Reformer Pilates.

Liza Lambert: A Legacy of Excellence

As a junior physiotherapist Carmen worked with Liza Lambert (the previous owner of this practice) in a practice in the south-east of Johannesburg. Liza became a mentor and friend. Carmen was honoured to work with Liza in this practice again from 2020, and to take over the practice in 2022. Carmen recognises and is grateful for the impact that Liza has had on her life and her professional practice. Sadly, Liza passed away in July 2022 after a battle with cancer. Liza was an incredible role model and person!
