"As a broken down dancer with the hypermobility and an injury tally to show for it, add in back surgery and a job that required endless sitting, and you get dysfunctional joints, pain and discomfort on a regular basis. But deep tissue massage is a magic fix. Better than drugs and more healing than physio or osteopathic alone. Ray has rare specialists skills and I was never physically more able or pain free than when under his care."

"Ray was our official company masseur on Priscilla Queen of the Desert the musical for a year in Sydney. His skill and expertise helped me and many others maintain strength and fitness and heal quickly after injury. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
