Physiotherapy and functional fitness are just some of whata��s on offer at this health centre
Tucked away in a quiet street in Anna Nagar is a health centre with a difference. The brainchild of Keshav Tantry, with a masters in sports physiotherapy from Coimbatorea��s Cherraan College, Revive is an outfit that combines physiotherapy, rehabilitation and fitness under one roof. a�?In my five years of practice, Ia��ve noticed that people who come to me with problems only keep up with their exercises until the pain subsides. With this centre, I hope to not only treat them but also encourage them to make fitness a part of their lives,a�? says the 28-year-old who began his career as a physiotherapist with city-based specialist, Dr Kannan Pugazhendi.
