Body + Spine over time has developed the reputation of a calm healing oasis where patients know they will get first rate service with the tough love message of being responsible for one’s own spinal and joint self-care.
Dr. Hirani has given talks to women's groups on visualization and health care. She believes "you draw in your practice what you are" and has therefore helped women in guided imagery at a women's conference. Being a mom, her focus on family health has special meaning. She has assisted pregnant women and post natal with spinal health, and taught spinal stretching and yoga to many new mothers. She is regularly referred to by the East York Midwives clinic after delivering both her babies via water birth at home with no medical intervention.
