In addition, she has completed her 200-hour post-doctorate program with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, earning her CACCP credentials with the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice, including being a certified Webster Technique practitioner.

It is Dr. Rahim’s belief that long-term wellness is about prevention, and that with the right tools and support, patients can create a sustainable state of health for themselves.

How do you thank someone who gave you a second lease of life? Who in a way saved your life? It may sound like hyperbole but considering how out of shape physically and mentally I was when I started to see Dr. Rahim, it’s true. Shamira is an incredible person\soul\human. Her patience and knowledge is so comforting and through her guidance and care I was able to heal and get stronger and stronger. Dr. Rahim’s holistic approach to health is brilliant.
