The aim of physiotherapy is to help restore movement and normal body function in cases of illness, injury and disability.  In Dubai many of us are very active, whether it’s running a marathon or throwing ourselves into a rugby match the wear and tear this causes soon takes it’s toll on our bodies.

It may not be a sport related injury that causes the need to seek their expertise but it could also be due to long working hours in the office crouched over a computer.  The reason to see a physiotherapist is endless hence the demand for Physiotherapists for both children and adults is high in Dubai.  Read more

the-archive-dubaiThe Archive opened in December 2012. It is a library dedicated to arts literature from the Middle East and North Africa, as well as a café and community space. With books on regional photography, architecture, art, calligraphy, art history, textiles, and interior design, as well as children’s books, it aims to promote the rich cultural and artistic heritage of the area, as well as celebrate its growing contemporary art scene. The books are seen as a resource for research and inspiration – they are not for sale, but guests are encouraged to browse and read during their time at The Archive.

The Archive provides something brand new for the people of Dubai. Not only is it a hub in which to work, discuss art and creativity, and to learn about the Middle East’s rich cultural heritage, but the addition of the café draws in a widely varied crowd that might not otherwise take advantage of such a resource.

Being located in Safa Park also puts The Archive in a unique position – in such a modern, urban city, it provides a haven of relaxation and calm among greenery and nature that is all too rare in Dubai. The location is also reflective of The Archive’s position on promoting environmental awareness. Most of all, it is a place that nurtures art in all forms, and promotes the MENA region as a culture of creativity. Read more
