For the past 16 years I’ve been serving people face to face as a Chiropractor in West Vancouver at the Centre for Optimal Living. Over the years I’ve also become an International Speaker and Master Success Coach. I’m also the Best Selling author of my book, Beyond Body Beyond Mind where I share my thirst for cutting-edge knowledge and wisdom. Most of this stemmed from my challenges as a troubled youth, yet after nearly losing my life I made a commitment to dedicate myself to helping others move beyond their symptoms, sickness and disease so they too could live their best life.
My unique life experiences, traveling the western world and my motherland of India, have lead me on a journey learning universal principles of life and embracing a rare view of Health, Healing and Human Potential.
My post secondary journey lasted over 10 years where I received Degrees Exercise Science, Kinesiology and a Doctorate of Chiropractic. My deep interest in study culminated with my graduation with Honours, Distinction, on the Dean’s list and with Clinical Honours. I’ve also referenced well over 5000 books and research articles over the past 2.5 decades.
I truly practice what I preach daily so I may show up with more authenticity, purpose and intent. My greatest accomplishment is being a family man as a father to my two young daughters and dedicated husband. I also love to push my Mind, Body & Spirit in challenging ultra-endurance events becoming a 7 time Ironman finisher with a personal record of 9:34 and racing marathons and 50-100 mile ultra-marathons with successful podium finishes.
It truly makes my heart swell with joy to empower generations of families to get on the Optimal Living Lifestyle so they can thrive, not just survive.
My name is Dr. Pavin Rakhra, I was born and raised in the city of Burnaby, BC and I’m still lucky to call it home. Spending quality time with family and friends is one of the things I value most as there is nothing better than connecting and enjoying life’s precious moments with those you love most. As a travel enthusiast, I have been beyond grateful to travel a vast part of the world experiencing and learning through the various lenses of the world. It has in turn left me with my own unique understandings and perspectives which contribute to my everyday lifestyle.
Many would agree that my passion for Chiropractic is palpable. Having the ability to serve and connect with those in my surrounding communities through sharing my passion is something indescribable.
Being introduced to chiropractic at the age of 16, it had a profound impact on my quality of living as an active teenager competing in sports such as soccer and hockey. Chiropractic is the one thing that allowed me to understand the self- healing potential that our bodies contain.
I graduated from Life Chiropractic College West, Magna Cum Laude, receiving my Doctor of Chiropractic. Countless hours of extra training, extracurricular programs and service trips across the world have expanded my knowledge exponentially leaving me with the desire to keep learning every step of the way.
We are all students of this thing called life.
It is a part of my vision to work with those in my community and to increase the quality of living of those around me through sharing my passion of chiropractic, love and connection.
I’m excited to be serving the community of West Vancouver as a Chiropractor at the Centre for Optimal Living.
