Take Care

"Each body is different. Therefore each rehabilitation must be different"

About Barbara

Who is Barbara Pretorius, the Physiotherapist?

I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1966, where I grew up in a Christian, middle-class, suburban home. I’d always wanted to do a job where I could help people and physiotherapy gave me the opportunity to do just that.

I am passionate about being able to help my patients by relieving pain and discomfort and enjoy encouraging them to take care of themselves. I love massaging my patients back to health.

I am a wife to Hannes, a mother, a grandmother and a mother-in-law too.

In July 2004 I relocated to Singapore where I took a sabbatical, enjoying my surrounds in Asia, whilst reading, writing, beading and sewing. I have a love for books!

I returned to South Africa in 2006 and settled by the coast in order to live close to the sea and far away from the city pollution and it was then that I started my own physiotherapy practice. From humble beginnings, in a small room with one bed, a hot pack and an ultrasound machine, growing into a fully-fledged practice with two treatment rooms, a reception area with a receptionist and an accounting system. I moved into the bigger premises where I am now in September 2009
