Anne Nemec, PT, CLT

Anne is owner of Integrative Physical Therapy. Her clinic takes a holistic approach to care and wellness and she specializes in Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation. The foundation of her practice is to improve fascial mobility and structural balance for improved functional movement and physiology.

Anne graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Physiotherapy from the Hogeschool van Amsterdam in the Netherlands in 1997. She worked two years in upstate New York working with disabled children. She returned to Oregon in 2000 and spent four years working in the Center for Women's Health at OHSU, where she specialized in Women's Health and Pelvic Physical Therapy; she also became a Prenatal Fitness Instructor.    

She and her family then decided to move back home to Eastern Oregon, spent two years living in Pendleton, Oregon and worked at Eastern Oregon Physical Therapy before moving home to Baker City. Anne spent 6 years working at St. Elizabeth Hospital and helped to develop a women’s health program and a lymphedema program there. In 2013 she opened up her private practice in order to offer the type of integrative and holistic care she specializes in.

Anne is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist from Norton School of Lymphatic Therapy. She has studied with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI).  Anne is working on certification through the Upledger Institute in CranioSacral Therapy and she continues her ongoing education in the The John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach.  Anne is a member of the Fascia Research Society and continues her education in the newly emerging field of Fascia Studies.

Anne and her husband are both 1988 graduates of Baker High School and are happy to have returned home to raise their family.  In her free time, Anne enjoys spending time and adventures with her husband, 3 teenager children, and 2 dogs.


Kim Zinn, PT, DPT, ATC, Cert. MDT

Kim joined the crew at Integrative Physical Therapy in October of 2017.  Her treatment focus is on orthopedic pain and injuries including the spine and joints. She has enjoyed broadening her skillset via working closely with Anne and attending her first myofascial release (MFR)course.

Kim performed her undergraduate studies at Pacific University and graduated  with a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Sports Medicine in 2001.  She continued at Pacific University for her graduate studies and received her Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree in 2004. Throughout both her undergraduate and graduate education, she worked as a student athletic trainer and personal trainer, earning her certificates for both during this time.

Both Kim and her husband worked in Pendleton from 2004 to 2008, when they were happily granted their transfer requests to work in Baker City. Kim worked as a physical therapist (PT) and athletic trainer (ATC) at St Elizabeth/St Alphonsus/STARS for over 9 years, focusing on working with patients with orthopedic and spine injuries. Her Sports Medicine background & education through STARS allowed her to stay active at Baker High School, performing musculoskeletal assessments and helping to create and be involved in the concussion management program (ImPACT Trained Physical Therapist).

In addition to orthopedic and sports injuries, Kim became credentialed in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) in 2016. This method of evaluation and treatment originated purely for working with the spine, but now we are able to apply the same principles to all the joints of the body, many times with quick and measurable success. Mechanically diagnosing and treating a joint problem gives the patient more ownership over their success in the treatment, and empowers them to return to health and wellness by returning what they enjoy doing. She also enjoys working with people that are dealing with balance difficulties, frequent falls or that are experiencing vertigo.

Kim is also a Baker Bulldog and is a 1997 graduate of BHS.  In her free time, Kim enjoys teaching exercise classes including PiYo and TRX; as well as camping/hiking with her family and friends.
