FIT Clinic is owned and operated by local husband and wife duo Chiprocator Dr. Rashaad Nauth-Ali and Registered Massage Therapist Farzaana Rashid.
Dr. Nauth-Ali and Farzaana moved to Grand Valley in Feb 2020 from Brampton where they have owned and operated their flagship FIT Clinic location since 2016.
The Grand Valley FIT Clinic location opened in Sep 2020. COVID-19 had slowed the Brampton location down enough for them to start taking a couple of days off during the week. After months of binge-watching Netflix and deliberation, they decided to go for it and expand their services to the Grand Valley community and use their “off days” to open a satellite clinic (based out of the lower level of the Grand Valley Medical & Dental Building at 21 Main Street N) for their new community.
It’s been such a great experience over the past 4 months that they wish they opened up in Grand Valley sooner!
I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Nauth-Ali and Farzaana a couple of weeks ago when Dr. Nauth-Ali treated my shoulder and neck after a fall on the ice. During my treatments, I was able to get to know a bit more about the couple and wanted to highlight their business with our lovely community.
Dr. Nauth-Ali was an elite level baseball player and had incurred many minor injuries over the years. His time spent in physical rehabilitation clinics sparked an interest in athletic performance and injury management. Further research into the “sports medicine” field and clinical experience led him down a path to Chiropractic.
Most people think that chiropractic is all about “cracking neck and backs” but Dr. Nauth-Ali loves to educate patients on the wide variety of things he can treat and methods of treatment apart from spinal adjustments (cracking).
Dr. Nauth-Ali said, “The adjustment is a tool in a tool belt, but there are many other things we can do to get you moving and feeling your best.”
Farzaana was in a stage of her life where she didn’t know what she
wanted to do or where she wanted to go. Farzaana was working in sales at a major gym franchise and was very successful, however, it definitely wasn’t what she wanted to do as a career.
After the earthquake in Haiti, Dr. Nauth-Ali did volunteer work with a chiropractic organization. His stories and trip were so inspiring and Farzaana knew at that point she wanted to do something to
help people and help them right away.
Farzaana started doing research in physical therapy and massage is what called out to her. It was a career that she could build and excel in with her athletic background.
Farzaana specialized in sports massage to focus on athletes and
sports injuries. Farzaana said, ” I love that massage is so much more than what you see on TV or in the movies, with our hands we are capable of improving performance, health and activities of daily living!”
In their limited down time Farzaana enjoys cooking, and exercise. Dr. Nauth-Ali enjoys playing baseball and golfing in the summers, as well as hockey and snowboarding in the winters. Together, they enjoy travelling the world and now look forward to setting their roots and building a family in beautiful Grand Valley.
