Harpal Dhari

Physiotherapist

I did my Bachelor in physiotherapy from Baba Farid University of health sciences, India. I have 10 years of clinical experience in orthopedics, neurological, work place injuries, cerebral palsy and post surgical rehabilitation.

My area of expertise is hand on approach, soft tissue manipulation, exercise prescription and educating my patients. My focus is not just treating the patients but making them understand their body as a whole system, to recover and prevent future problems.

I believe in enjoying life in whatever phase you are, love playing cricket, table tennis, eating good food, long drives during night and being with family.

Nayul also specializes in Mei Zen/Cosmetic Acupuncure. Mei Zen literally means “beautiful person” in Chinese. Mei Zen, or Cosmetic Acupuncture, uses ancient Chinese medicine practices to “turn back the clock” on aging. It is an exciting alternative to plastic surgery, Botox and potentially “unhealthy” or invasive techniques that has proved to show amazing results!

Mei Zen uses a minimally invasive needling technique that works to rebuild the elastin and collagen matrix of the skin. In other words, each needle creates a micro trauma that stimulates the dermis to rebuild itself with new skin.

AJAY
Ajay Verma, B.P.T., MBA

Kinesiologist

“The thing I like the most about Kinesiology is knowing I can make a difference in people’s lives every day. Figuring out someone’s needs and customizing a program to get them back to close to their normal life is both important and extremely rewarding. Active Rehabilitation is just not a program, it’s a lifestyle which is sustainable and attainable.
In my free time I would love to play badminton and exploring new hiking trails.”
