Ray completed his studies in Osteopathy at Victoria University, Melbourne, before graduating in 2004. Originally a wool farmer, Ray decided to sell his farm and move with his family to Melbourne to study Osteopathy, particularly after he found much relief for his farming ailments and old sporting injuries by embracing the holistic treatment.
He is a father to two children (both currently studying at university) and has always found immense inspiration in being able to help them with their own health and wellbeing. Additionally, his greatest pleasure comes from experiencing the satisfaction patients feel when they finally find relief from their poor health concerns, thanks to the comprehensive and hands-on treatments that West Perth Osteopathy offers.
Ray practises a Biodynamic approach to osteopathic treatment and utilises a mix of structural and cranial techniques. He believes in the necessity of the balance of body, mind and spirit for complete health and wellbeing.
Outside Of The Practice
Like all of our practitioners, Ray enjoys constantly enhancing and updating his skills with Continuing Professional Development (CPD). This includes attending a 4-day course in Bio Dynamics each year, something Ray has been attending for over 10 years now.
His passion for Osteopathy has seen him become involved in a range of volunteer positions with Osteopathy Australia, including WA President, National Board Member and Media Representative. As a result, he has made regular appearances on radio, including with ABC Radio, 6PR and Curtin FM.
When Ray isn’t busily working away at West Perth Osteopathy, he also likes to take part in activities such as dance classes with his wife (Latin and ballroom), as well as playing tennis, cycling, singing in the local choir, and mentoring newly-engaged couples.
