About us

Mend Health

Hello! I’m Tamar, the founder of Mend Health.

I'm a former Olympic figure skater. I spent half my life training, competing...and dealing with injuries. I've been through it all--years of physical therapy, painkillers, cortisone shots, and surgery.

When I was an Olympic athlete, I had access to a comprehensive, integrated recovery regimen including a dedicated coach, an exercise-as-medicine program, mental training, and social support. When I stepped away from elite figure skating, I no longer had access to this type of integrated care system. 

That's why I've partnered with pain specialists--doctors, psychologists, and physical therapists--to make this Olympic approach accessible to you. I want to help you reduce recurring pain, avoid frequent flare-ups, and enjoy your life.

How Does It Work?

Our integrated, six-element program is designed for the whole you, to reduce your persistent pain.


The psychological toolkit

Chronic pain often changes how your nerves and brain process pain. It’s often coupled with stress, anxiety, and other negative feelings. Over time, our bodies create a feedback loop associated with those emotions.

Our psychological toolkit helps break that cycle by teaching you practical skills to better cope with pain—and limit the control it has over your life.

Exercise as medicine

The right exercise is important for managing flare-ups. You’ve probably “graduated” from physical therapy, but now you’re stuck with programs that are boring or even make your pain worse.

Our exercise-as-medicine program is designed to help you overcome fear of movement, regain the joy of your favorite activities, and maximize what your body can do today.

Support & accountability

Chronic pain can be isolating, inhibiting your ability to take part in social activities. And that can cause withdrawal, or even depression.

Our supportive, constructive community, led by Mend coaches who know how to manage chronic pain, will help you feel connected and supported by others going through the same journey.
