About the Clinician/Instructor
Jamie DeMarco received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Pittsburgh in 2005. She
began her practice in neurological and vestibular rehabilitation, receiving specialized training at UPMC's Eye and Ear Institute, one of the renowned clinics for vestibular and balance disorders. After two years Dr DeMarco then shifted her focus to orthopaedics and has since spent years strengthening her manual techniques, exercise prescription, and diagnostic skills. Over more recent years Dr DeMarco has developed a strong interest for treating pelvic floor dysfunction and began training to become a pelvic floor specialist through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute in 2019. In the spring of 2021, Dr DeMarco was honored to receive clinical privileges at UPMC Center for Integrative Medicine and now shares her time between her Wexford location and the Center for Integrative Medicine in Shadyside.
Dr DeMarco began practicing yoga in 2007. She was initially drawn to this practice because of its union of strength, flexibility, and balance, however, over the years her passion has grown much deeper. In 2015 she received her 200 hour yoga teacher training certification through Schoolhouse Yoga. In 2016 she began her post graduate certification in Medical Therapeutic Yoga and completed the program in the Fall of 2018.
Dr DeMarco is passionate about treating the patient from this integrative approach. She prides herself in taking the time to intently listen to patient's concerns and complaints. She devises care that is specific to the individual's needs and wants. Dr DeMarco believes in a mindfulness based holistic approach to healing with focused observation and intention to movement and breath.
