about Rahim

Rahim’s approach to working with you integrates a deeper awareness about the way our bodies function to create a customized treatment specific to your needs based on what’s present in each session. Our bodies are constantly regenerating and repairing, breaking down and healing.  Dr. Deepak Chopra invites us to consider, the body is a process” rather than a fixed non-changing entity.  Having such an awareness offers the possibility of a different kind of relationship with our bodies, one that encourages us to consider the importance of our consciousness and the degree to which this influences the way our bodies respond to internal and external signals and stimuli, whether these are constructive and healthy or destructive and dysfunctional.


Daily patterns and habits, injuries, surgery, stressful situations, traumatic experiences can caysedysfunction or restrictions in our body’s connective tissues or fascia.  Symptoms may be ‘loud’ and painful or soft and subtle, in either case, our body is seeking attention.  When we slow down to listen, we allow our body’s intelligence to guide us towards healing and repair, and to enable optimal health and function.

During treatment Rahim invites you to slow down, listen and consider the impact on these factors on your body.  While it’s important to treat symptoms as they arise, it’s equally important to cultivate a proactive, preventative habit of returning to homeostasis regularly.  This requires us to develop a lifestyle that regularly creates spaces for mind, body, spirit to slow down, rest and recharge.

Rahim brings an open and curious heart to working with you and his practice is grounded in 4 Core Principles:

  1. The body is self-regulating and self-healing

  2. The body is a unit

    • body, mind, emotions, experiences are integrated 

  3. Structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) are interrelated

  4. Movement is health
