His approach is rooted in his belief in the transformative power of movement.

By seeing such a diverse clientele over the years, Lindsay has learned that variety and combinations of techniques, as well as honest communication, work best. 'My ultimate goal has always been to treat the whole person, not just where an injury resides. I truly believe everything is connected. We function as a single. evolving piece.'
