Dr. Leif Martensson is a native of Eskilstuna, Sweden. He left a semi-professional soccer career to come to the United States in 1991 after receiving a full soccer scholarship to Radford University in Virginia. While at Radford, Dr. Leif became exposed to chiropractic through a fellow teammate. His love of natural healing without the use of drugs or surgery was right in sync with the principles of chiropractic. When he realized that chiropractic was the “missing link” to the health principles he already embraced, Dr. Leif decided to pursue a Chiropractic degree at Life University in Marietta, Georgia. While at Life University, he was also able to continue playing soccer on the collegiate level and then graduated in 1999.
Following graduation, Dr. Leif returned to Europe and settled in Galway, Ireland, where he served as the Clinic Director of a busy practice until 2002. In 2002, Dr. Leif returned to the United States to marry and practice with his wife, Annette, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. In 2005 Dr. Leif relocated his family to central Florida and joined Dr. Yachter at Elevation Health.
Dr. Leif and his wife are the proud parents of two healthy, drug- and vaccine-free “chirokids.”
Dr. Leif’s passion is to create a paradigm shift in the way people view health and wellness. He strongly believes that health comes from within, and the power that made the body, heals the body. He feels privileged to help people heal and recover from sickness and disease, without the use of drugs and surgery through chiropractic care. He is especially in tune with the mental and physical needs of the athlete through his experience as both a professional and collegiate athlete.
