Ray Chen


Before recently moving to Coffs Harbour, Ray grew up and lived most of his life in Sydney. He completed his Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) at the University of Sydney in 2011 and worked primarily as a musculoskeletal/sports physiotherapist and clinical pilates instructor. He was the Head Physiotherapist at North Shore Mariners, also working at Central Coast Mariners and Manly United Football Club where he gained plenty of experience in the treatment and prevention of sporting injuries.

Ray had a serious accident a few years ago that prevented him from working as a private clinician but in his recovery found a passion for mental health and mindfulness. This led him to complete his Psychology  (Honours) degree and start his PhD in Mindfulness and Pain. He is so grateful for this life-changing experience as it allows him to now support his clients in both the mental and physical aspects of pain/rehab management in his Physiotherapy work. Along with being a Physio, Ray is also a Mindfulness Teacher and Researcher.

Ray is passionate about the holistic treatment of pain and injury. He recently moved to Coffs Harbour with his partner looking for a change of pace, and to enjoy the coastal life. Ray is dedicated to helping people in the community free themselves of pain and suffering.
