Passionate about prevention.
Hi! I’m Lindsay, a doctor of physical therapy, wellness advocate, mom, and owner & therapist at Marka Health I started Marka Health in 2017 after working for over ten years as a physical therapist at the top clinics in San Francisco and as a trainer for elite NCAA athletes at UCLA. The more people I worked with in the clinic the more I noticed that many of the injuries we were seeing were preventable. As an biomechanical expert, orthopedic clinical specialist, yoga teacher and certified ergonomist I understand what factors contribute to injury. I decided to start Marka Health in order to bring that knowledge to people earlier in the health continuum.
Marka is a Norwegian word referring to a forested area adjacent to a city or town, where people can escape the daily grind for fresh air and nature. I chose the name inspired by the many parks and areas of nature in our own beautiful San Francisco. To ‘take a marka’ allows you to take a break and reset, which is so important for preventing injury, staying healthy, and achieving balance.
Looking forward to meeting you!
