Ray's Background

Physical Therapy and complimentary methods

Ray has distinctive knowledge of the movement system, and expertise in mobility and locomotion.  Ray uses a process based on the leading edge of brain research concepts called Neuroplasticity.  Ray is a licensed health care professional Physical Therapist (PT).  Ray also uses The Feldenkrais Method(R), The Anat Baniel Method(R), Craniosacral therapy, Myofascial reorganization, and Acupressure, etc.

If you decide to work with Ray, he uses an information gathering "process" of movement awareness and data collection. What shocks many who first work with Ray are these surprises:  testing the capacity of what the body can do, or testing your body out to do things, or evolving physical skills, or gaining strength-and having fun-can be accomplished in an easy, effortless way of moving. There is a strong influence in us, also culture worthiness, that hard work and effort are the only way to go. Many of us have trained the "hard" versus "easy" decision option out of each other years ago.  In addition, Ray works with individuals to calibrate toward well-being, thriving, and vitality by developing fitness and wellness programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.

“I am an orthopedic surgeon sub-specializing in sports medicine. I have sent many patients for consultation who have failed treatment in other facilities. Ray’s adjuvant use of manual therapy has proved timely and beneficial for these more difficult cases resulting in significant improvement in function. He has much to offer.”- Terrance McAllister, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon.
