She is passionate about helping clients rebalance their bodies to optimize recovery and return to their highest level of health and function.

Best Rehab center in town with top-notch professionals!Before coming to Shereen I was lost in pain for more than 2 years! Shes very knowledgeable, patient and truly takes the time to explain the case and what’s happening to your body. I had to see Dr Mika as well and he's just amazing.Both helped and supported my very long healing journey and getting to the end its line, I’m blessed to come across them as I have seen lot of other physiotherapists before and none have gave the amount of relief and comfort Shereen and Dr Mika provided.Highly recommend! You will truly feel the difference after the first visit

Shereen isn‘t just a wizard at healing people. What sets her apart is how much she cares about the individual, going above and beyond to ensure endurance athletes can get back to pursue their training plans and dreams. Highly recommended.

I recently had the pleasure of receiving treatment from Shereen at PhysioFit, and I cannot express how grateful I am for the incredible care I received.After suffering from persistent headaches for months, I was beginning to lose hope of finding relief. However, after just a few sessions with Shereen, my headaches are no longer occurring and have been cured.Thank you so much!

Physiofit is the only place in Dubai that knows how to treat injuries, aches and pains. After years of trying different physiotherapists and osteopaths to help me with chronic back pain, knee injury and neck pain, I finally found Shereen. Not only did she fix my back but also got me moving and helped me by fixing the knee pain. Thanks to her I am now able to work out in the gym and have even lost weight. Her dry needling skills and her ability to treat pain is simply outstanding. Big thank you to the Physiofit team; especially Shereen Hassam!

Shereen is hands down the best physiotherapist. She helped alleviate pain I had for over a year in my neck, shoulder and back due to a car accident injury. My range of movement is restored. She also treats her clients with compassion and take the time to explain how the treatment works. She has blessed hands.

I have been a patient of PhysioFit for more than a year. I have incredible aspirations of long distance running and have subsequently had two meniscus repairs. I consulted with Shereen and she completely understand a runners mindset. Shereen is one of the best medical precessional I have ever consulted. She has extensive experience and her dry needling speciality is unbeatable. She got me running again (after many doubted my quick return) and I did an Ultra marathon in less than 3 months after surgery. This year with a few maintenance appointments I ran my fastest time in 10 years. She is caring and treat only what is needed. This is owner managed practice which means there is love for human well being because there is skin in the game. Shereen is lots of skin in this game. I would recommend her a million times over.

Shereen is an amazing physio. Thanks to her treatment I was able to recover on time from an injury to run the Dubai marathon in 3h. Also, she helps me maintain my legs in shape for all the heavy training load I put my body through. Thank you Shereen!

Great clinic, kind staff, good energy with an amazing view. I’m seeing Dr Mika for chiropractic sessions since months and it’s getting better and better. He really masters what he’s doing, makes the effort to listen and understand your trauma and is very kind. Didn’t try physiotherapy at the moment but can’t wait to do some sessions. I recommend going there.

Shereen is highly professional, very experienced and was very kind to provide after treatment advice once I left Dubai. She help me correct a severe lateral shift, which is very difficult to do, and requires particular skill with dry needling in a delicate area of the lower back. I highly recommend her services.
I have been to many physiotherapist around all the Uae and haven’t felt a difference after the sessions, I have almost done 20-30 session of physiotherapy with other doctors , all of the sessions combined isn’t even close with one session of Dr Shereen , I have done 5 sessions with Dr Shereen and every time I am done with one session I feel better almost instantly. On top of all of that Dr Shereen is one of the kindest Doctor I have ever met, I highly recommend physio fit Because amount of experience in the therapy and amount of kindness.I have been lifting weight during that time of therapy and still do, i didn’t have lot of restrictions from any exercises, Dr Shereen made me continue fitness life as normal and improved my lower back pain.
