No it doesnt hurt anything by taking it apart enough to reshim, would hurt things more by not taking it apart to adjust the valve clearances into specs, just dont overtighten the bolts. How recently was the valve job done?

You don't need to remove the cylinder head to re shim the valves.

When you remove the cylinder head/cyinder make sure you replace the gaskets every time.
