Rahim Kanji

CHIROPRACTOR • PHYSICAL THERAPIST

 

Rahim’s journey in the field of rehabilitation started early in childhood. His grandmother suffered from chronic low back pain and would frequently ask him to step on her back or make herbal patches using ingredients such as turmeric and eggs. This piqued his curiosity of how the body functions and heals, driving his educational pursuits to find the most effective approach to heal and maintain the body at its best – free of dis-ease. In college, he began working with patients in cardiac rehabilitation and from there delved into the areas of chiropractic care and physical therapy.

 

As a clinician, he specializes in conservative management of the neuromuscular system. He has worked in the field of rehabilitation for 14 years, integrating various approaches to provide the best treatment for his patients. As all individuals heal differently and at different paces, he continues in his pursuit of knowledge to find the best solutions to treating the human body.

PHYSICAL THERAPY AIDE

 

 

Martha Howe

PILATES INSTRUCTOR

 

At an early age, Martha could be found running around, standing on her head, or cartwheeling about. This passion for movement led her to a variety of activities (tennis, gymnastics, track, basketball), among them the study of dance. During her collegiate years, her curiosity about anatomy and how the body functions continued to grow. She began studying somatic approaches, including Alexander Technique and Bartenieff Fundamentals, later certifying in Pilates.

 

In her Pilates practice, she endeavors to create a safe and challenging environment. Understanding her clients and their specific needs and goals is key to helping them master their bodies. She encourages clients to incorporate Pilates principles of breath, centering, and alignment into daily activity to improve the quality of life.

 

Her ten years of teaching have given her the opportunity to work with a wide range of clientele, be they rehabilitative, preventative, interested in strength training, or weight loss. With each new client, she continues her research in pursuit of the program that will provide optimal results for that individual. She hopes to do the same for you.
