Where Did He Start?

Hamid is no stranger to injuries.

14+ hours of surgery after a series of injuries, a severed Ulnar Nerve due to complete forearm fracture, finger paralysis, multiple shoulder dislocations, many soft tissue injuries due to high demanding athletics, a seemingly endless cycle of rehabilitation, and constant frustrations with not having the knowledge and control over his healing process, is what drove Hamid to discover his passion for the therapeutic world.

20+ dislocations of the dominant shoulder was enough to think of a solid plan to save his shoulder to get back to a normal and active lifestyle that he always had! That’s why he decided to go through a reconstructive shoulder surgery to physically/mechanically stop the shoulder joint from dislocating.

Hamid was even told by doctors that he wouldn’t be able to regain movement in his fingers after his forearm fracture and he challenged that through a grueling 2 years of intensive rehabilitation therapy. Guess what? He could generate movement in those fingers which has been the most fascinating thing!

After taking a year off to pay complete attention to my health mentally and physically, I decided to venture into the therapeutic world as a massage therapist to help myself and help those who are walking the same path, because I know how it feels to not know what to do when you need it the most!

How Did He Get Here? 

He graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy. His experience in Personal Fitness Training along with his background in Mechanical Engineering complemented his thorough understanding of human anatomy and his holistic approach to design a treatment plan specific to each Client’s needs. Through Working alongside chiropractors and physiotherapists and volunteering for athletic clubs like Vancouver Whitecaps Football Club and places that require more holistic and specific treatments such as senior homes, he is able to adapt to different body types and design treatment plans for each individual.

He has experience in treating acute and chronic overuse injuries and conditions like Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, sports rehabilitation and injuries incurred from long hours of working at a desk or poor posture.

In his treatments, he uses Deep Tissue, Muscle Scraping (Gua-Sha), Myofascial release, Trigger Point Release, Neuromuscular & Muscle Energy techniques and joint mobilization infused with Swedish Massage to help the body reset itself to an optimal state. 

After Massage school, He accentuated his therapeutic pathway by acquiring different skills such as becoming a Fitness Coach by getting certified with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), along with becoming a Fascial Stretch Therapist (FST Certified) and learning how to treat a variety of injuries externally via Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM).

What Is He Doing Now?

Currently he is studying Traditional Chinese Medicine and ACUPUNCTURE since he believes that is the missing puzzle in a holistic approach towards healing/rehabilitation and he cannot wait to fuse western and eastern medicine to help his clients achieve the best of both worlds!

He enjoys spending time on his fitness routines and finding new trails to hike around Beautiful British Columbia. self-education and reading books is a big part in his life since he believes learning is a lifelong journey.

He found this upon himself to share his journey and knowledge with his community. That is when he decided to make the convenience and accessibility of Healthcare his goal and TheraFlow Wellness was born! Now he is dedicated to achieve this goal along with an amazing team of talented and qualified individuals.

Let The Healing Begin!
