Linda Craig, Founder & Owner


Linda Craig graduated from the Physical Therapy Program at University of Texas Health Science Center in 1989 and moved back to her home state of Washington to work in a busy practice. After several years of teaching the basics of Physical Therapy to her patients and growing frustrated with the limitations of this modality, Linda decided to seek out new ways of understanding body mechanics and treating dysfunction.

Her search led her to a 4-year training program in the Feldenkrais Method® that changed her life. She was astounded by the powerful results of incorporating these gentle techniques into her practice. Later, fueled by this same passion and dedication to therapy, Linda completed courses of study in Osteopathic Techniques, Bowen Therapy and Craniosacral Therapy and Postural Restoration. She has also studied Reiki and other energy work as a way of examining the connection between the mind, the physical body, and the emotional plane.

Linda’s practice focuses on making sure patients use the best possible body mechanics and postural alignment during activities. She combines techniques from all of her years of training and experience, along with a variety of health, wellness and exercise products, to create lasting change for her patients.

She created Linda’s Center in 1998 in order to provide her patients with a safe environment for learning, exploring, transformation and growth. In 2010, Linda expanded the business to include an office in Federal Way and changed the name of the practice to Pathways Physical Therapy, Inc.

Linda is available for public speaking engagements and lectures upon request. To learn more, or book Linda at your next event, email or call 253-848-9769.
