Specializing in Swedish and sports massage, as well as neuromuscular therapy and myofascial release, Ray also incorporates passive stretching, trigger-point therapy, and muscle-energy techniques. He customizes each session to focus on problem areas and the release of chronically held stress.

Occupying 22 sprawling acres of Tampa Bay coastline, Safety Harbor Resort & Spa combines the leisure of a luxury resort with the peaceful release of a day spa. A pack of 10 resort day passes provides unlimited access to the 50,000 square feet of recently renovated resort, spa, and fitness facilities for a full face-wallop's worth of relaxation. Three pools offer aquatic opportunities for every temperament. A fitness center is stocked to the muscle-bound rafters with cardio and weight equipment, and group classes take place daily, with 78 classes available each week. Clean and spacious men's and women's locker rooms give guests a chance to wind down in privacy after schvitzing within the confines of a sauna or steam room. The 10 passes can be used by one person over the course of 10 separate days, or shared with nine companions chanting "number nine" in a vaguely British monotone.
Heather S. Kuczer's career was inspired by her experiences as a chronic back- and neck-pain sufferer. After years of trying to cover up her symptoms with medication, she decided to explore alternative forms of treatment and soon found herself pursuing her massage license in order to help others find relief from pain, anxiety, and stress. Seventeen years later, she joinsa group of licensed, experienced massage therapists who dole out relaxing treatments such as aromatherapy massage and warm footbaths. The center's specialties are naturally geared toward therapeutic work including neuromuscular and sports massages, which focus on soothing the ails of consummate athletes and soccer balls tired of being kicked around.
