Dr. Linda's History
Graduating from Binghamton University with a BA in Theater Dance in 1974 was a peak experience especially since even before her cap and gown ceremony Linda had a job as a dancer and choreographer with The American Dance Asylum.
Increasing her personal safety was also a goal so Linda trained with Master Hidy Ochai in Washin Ryu Karate. She was able to achieve purple belt status.
NPR, NBC, CBS, ABC, and Fox news have featured Dr. Linda. Her book Internal Cleansing, offers questionnaires and strategies to create a customized cleansing approach appropriate for the reader. She teaches classes and speaks offering resources and knowledge to coax you to your next level of health and well-being.
Linda was living her dream life. But it ended in a flash in 1976 when she smashed through a windshield in a car crash crushing her spine. She woke up some days later paralyzed. After three and a half months in the hospital, she was released in a wheelchair with long leg braces that locked at the knee so she could stand and underarm crutches so she could walk.
Linda rose up from her wheelchair and after rigorous years of trial and effort she’s able to help others achieve the health and vitality she now enjoys.
In 1982 Dr. Linda earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree and has been in private practice since then. She treats and guides you to get out of pain and back to a life you can enjoy.
