About The Markson Connection


Our Vision: To attract, gather, and inspire a tribe of like-minded chiropractors, providing them with the necessary resources to build practices and lives that are truly successful, rewarding, and personally fulfilling.

The Markson Connection is purposely unlike the complex and gigantic size of traditional chiropractic consulting or seminar programs. It is smaller, simpler, more intimate, more synergistic and more exclusive – clearly not for everyone.

Our goal is to attract a tribe of like-minded chiropractors who have already achieved some success, and are now looking to play a bigger role in positively influencing the lives of others.

We come together to learn, share, grow, shed, experience, emote, change, evolve, blend, adapt, laugh, and express –until we become agents of change for ourselves and others as well.

Our current members are committed to the concepts and visions described on this website.

Please go to the Membership Services page and see an amazing list of the services we offer our members.
