Remedial Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Myotherapy , Trigger Point Therapy and Stretch therapy is good for pain management. I get referrals from Chiropractors, Physiotherapist and personal trainers.
Ray's Remedial Massage can include but not limited to just Remedial Massage, Myotherapy release, trigger point release, deep tissue massage, stretch therapy which can encourage blood flow to tight bands of muscle and provide effective relief from pain and tightness by removing tightness in the Myofascial layer. Also some active stretching may also be used to help with your pain. The immediate benefits from your remedial massage therapy will include reduced pain, improved mobility, decreased stress and improved energy levels.
Massage helps relieve a lot of tensions, pain particularly in the neck and shoulder areas, common in those who sit a lot or use a computer at work. Backs are also prone to tightening from prolonged sitting or if you have Scoliosis or Scheunemann's disease. Remedial massage mixed with deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and stretch therapy can help remedy these problems by lengthening the muscles and balancing out the body for improved postural alignment.
1: Remedial massage stimulate the blood supply, make joints more mobile, and help to repair damaged tissues. It helps to balance the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which restores the correct position of the bones, increases blood flow and helps heal injuries.
2: Trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.
3: Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue. It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
4: Myotherapy for fascial release involves applying sustained pressure into the fascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
5: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a more advanced form of flexibility training, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted. PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of stretching for improving flexibility and increasing range of motion.

I’ve had back pain and other muscular issues for years, after one session, Ray spotted multiple weak points and lacking points of my body and has helped massively. Would highly recommend if you’re looking for someone with extensive knowledge and professionalism. Also very beautiful place :) Jie 09/11/21 (On Google review)

Ray is a very intelligent hardworking massage therapist who puts in the extra effort that not many people do in the industry. he is helping my tightness after years of having no luck with other massage therapists. Highly recommend. Nicholas 27/09/21 (On Google review)
Ray goes above and beyond the traditional massage experience. He is very skillful and knowledgeable in his practice and truly cares about his clients. Ray's use of pressure points is the most productive massage technique i have come across: Ray additionally reaches out two days after the session to check in and see how you are feeling. Overall, I would recommend Rau to anyone needing some serious relief. hawksoccer33 26/09/21 (On Google review)
Ray has been very efficient in dealing with my back and neck pain from several months of poor posture of wfh. He was able to pinpoint the sore and tight muscles and apply remedial techniques to relieve them. If someone is facing similar issues like mine, I would highly recommend Ray.

The massage studio is immaculate. Straight away you feel calm and relaxed. Ray has thought about all the details for you with your comfort in mind. The massage itself was very therapeutic, and helped rehabilitate my shoulder. Really recommend Ray’s trigger point massage for anyone experiencing pain or range of motion issues with their body.

Ray has been a godsend to my mum! Every time she has gone to see him, he has looked after her and treated her accordingly with his wealth of knowledge. She had a lot of back pain in the last few weeks and the look of relief on her face after seeing him today was priceless. We highly recommend him. Thank you Ray 🙏🏽 15/06/21 (On Google review)
I was looking for a massage therapist who actually knew how to deal with long-term, tight muscles especially in the shoulders and neck. As massage is ideally done on an ongoing basis to maintain the body, I also wanted someone that I'd be happy to visit again. Ray was professional, and has an excellent, well set up work area. He listened to my requirements, and provided a strong massage, as requested. Trigger point therapy left me feeling like something had actually been done to fix my tight muscles, and I left with noticeable results e.g. could turn my neck further than before. It did hurt when the right spots were touched but that was what I was looking for, and any pain eased up quickly. Would highly recommend Ray as it's not easy to find a knowledgeable therapist who is personable and charges reasonably. CK 03/05/21 (On Google review)
I have 4 bulging disc's and Ray always helps manage my pain, brings me back to pain free. James 5 May 2021 on Facebook.
I had serious pain in my right shoulder for several weeks so booked in with Ray who used trigger point therapy to treat it. After the treatment most of the pain had eased significantly and within a couple of days it had completely gone. I wish I hadn't waited so long in the first place! I've already recommended him to several friends. Very professional and a great result! Thank you! Lisa. On (On Google review) 03/21
Ray is very professional and knowledgeable in his area. Highly recommended!! I can comfortably refer my patients to him.

Had the best trigger point massage in Canberra with Ray! This was my 2nd time going and I’m so glad I found him. I’m booking in monthly from now. His knowledge of the points that will be sore is amazing. I have really tight back, shoulders and legs and he manages to find them and get rid of them. I have never had someone push some of the triggers that he did and omg is was so sore but afterwards I feel so free. I have tried so many massage therapists in Canberra that day they are trigger point but are no way near up to the standard of what I have experienced with Ray. Jakie 02.02.20 On (On Google review).
