Johanna Baumann

Akoranga Clinic

Physiotherapist and Registered Hand Therapist

B.AppSc ( Physiotherapy), PGD (Rehab)

Johanna is based at our Akoranga clinic. She has worked in hand therapy for the past ten years, but prior to this developed a strong physiotherapy base working as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist and pilates instructor in private practices and hospitals in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Johanna initially joined Hands On in 2010, then relocated to Sydney where she worked in a hospital-based hand unit. She returned to New Zealand, and happily to Hands On, in 2019. She continues to have a keen interest in post-operative splinting and rehabilitation of hand injuries.

Outside of work, Johanna enjoys exploring the New Zealand coastline, giving old houses a new lease on life, and attempting to keep up with her active boys in and out of the water. She is also fluent in German.
