Founder + CEO
Ray is a world renowned, celebrity injury rehab and human performance expert that has managed the bodies of many high-profile clientele ranging from professional athletes, music icons, supermodels, fashion gurus, adventurers, film directors, writers, executives and royalty.
Ray’s career kicked off at an incredibly early age as a junior Australian athlete. Ray’s footballing dreams ended abruptly, with his first knee reconstruction at age 14, followed by 3 more knee operations by the age of 18 amongst many other injuries including spine reconstructive surgery and autoimmune disorders. This gave Ray an incredible life lesson and early insight into the world of rehabilitation and recovery.
Ray became Australia’s youngest ever qualified football coach at age 15. By 16, Ray was studying anatomy and physiology and began working as a licensed strength and conditioning coach and trainer before going on to further his studies in the fields of exercise science, biomechanics, injury rehabilitation and kinetic chain assessment.
Since then Ray has spent the last 20 years as a leading expert with a focus on the music industry, managing the health and wellbeing for some of the world's leading music icons. During this time, Ray developed his proprietary methodology for a more holistic view on healing and performance as an in demand global practitioner across UK, Europe and US.
TERSA is a lifelong passion of Ray’s with the ultimate goal to disrupt the health, wellness and medical industry with a more holistic and multidimensional view on how to fully integrate the mind and body to heal, recover and expand awareness of oneself.
