I never thought the diploma course will be transformative. But, I experienced transformation at the last week of the course which enables me to see myself in a different way. I have to thanks Brandon for that, he is just an awesome human being... ...I learned excellent massage techniques too, but I learned more about myself after the course... I’m Looking forward to taking the advanced course in the future!
If you're looking for a one stop shop for massage and actually want a career of helping people, not just giving them temporary relief, look no further!!! Do not waste 12 months of your life learning a routine massage. If you truly wish to learn a technique from one of the best in the industry, Brandon Raynor is your man! Be prepared to learn nearly 30 years worth of refined into 10 days (for the Diploma). Be prepared to learn a lot about yourself and others, for some of us, the course changed our lives. Brandon is a very humble person with a what-you-see-is-what-you-get attitude, caring, very approachable, knowledgeable and can read you like a book. Thanks to Brandon for his time, assistance and fantastic style of teaching. My career change is a sure thing and the kudos go to Brandon! Regards, Mira
Deep tissue massage therapy to get at the root of problems..!
I have just completed the Raynor Massage course in Sydney and can't recommend it highly enough! I didn't have any experience in massage beforehand, and found the course easy to follow and the techniques super effective! Brandon's endless knowledge and experience, and holistic approach to massage is amazing (Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, shiatsu, thai massage, reflexology, accupressure etc). The techniques are simple, but I have never seen massage have such a instant and holistic effect on the body! The course is very practical with lots of demonstrations and hands on practise, but little attention to detailed anatomy and physiology. Coming from a human movement background I appreciated this approach very much, but if you didn't have much understanding of the body and how it works, you might feel a bit more confident with a bit of self study before the course. Basic anatomy and physiology is simple enough to learn at home, and I'm glad we used class time on practical rather than learning the names of every muscle. Brandon is a wizard himself, and simply steaches students to FIND and FEEL tension, and how to get rid of it longterm. It's quite an intense course, but I graduated feeling confident and excited to start practising.I highly recommend this course to rookies, and massage therapists alike. I don't know of any other form of massage therapy that draws on so many different modalities.
I have just completed the Certificate and Diploma courses held in Gympie. The two weeks spent learning Raynor Massage have been life changing for me!! Not only did I learn amazing skills to help people with releasing of tension, I also learnt a lot about myself and made some wonderful friends. Brandon and Cori were so professional, knowledgeable, thorough and a pleasure to learn from and I am super excited to follow my passion and use my new skills to help people!! I would highly recommend this course to anyone who has the same passion. This style of massage is definitely unique. Thanks again Brandon and Cori :)
What an absolute pleasure to train as a massage therapist at a facility with such a high level of professionalism.From day one through to graduation.What a delight to learn from staff and students that celebrate life,put hearts in front of judgement and approach learning with a grounded intellect.i look back fondly at my education and relationships I forged there.If you choose to study massage for professional or personal reasons look no further than Raynor Massage School.Thanks Brandon.Nick

Words are too primitive to discribe the after effects, Now this year Brandon himself presented me my Advanced Diploma, What an honorto learn from the Principal himself.Thank you and Blessings on you and your loved ones Brandon
Recently completed the two week Raynor's Massage Diploma Course located at Gympie Queensland. Can honestly say the course was very enjoyable and definitely increased my awareness of the amount of residual tension that we can store away in our bodies. Brandon and Cori were very professional and delivered the course in a simple but effective way. Highly recommend this course for anyone interested in learning techniques of massage that truly do work at releasing tension and stress.RegardsPaul Richardson
Accredited member of the Massage Association of Australia, IICT, the World Massage Federation, and INTA.
Brandon Raynor ‘s Massage and Natural Therapies School is one of Australia’s premier Massage and Naturopathy schools and have been teaching our courses all over Australia since 1999. We regularly hold our short intensive massage courses in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, the Gold Coast, Gympie and the Sunshine Coast.
Brandon Raynor believes that people ought to be empowered to take their health into their own hands through holistic and natural medicine. One of the best and most ignored ways to prevent disease and maintain optimum health is to receive a massage. In fact, massage has been shown to have a positive effect on overall health; reducing body aches, tension and stress while increasing mobility, energy and much more.
However, different massages produce different results. Raynor Naturopathic Massage combines the most effective styles—relaxation elements from Swedish massage, acupressure from Shiatsu, breathing techniques from yoga, reflexology, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and more. RNM also has its own techniques and band theory that focuses on the integration of body parts, as well the interconnectedness with the mind and spirit.

Raynor Massage Therapy Courses
Our courses teach a specialised form of holistic massage therapy known as Raynor Massage. Raynor Massage has a reputation as being one of the deepest forms of massage therapy in the world. With our techniques we are able to extract tension and long term stressors that have been causing people chronic pain and discomfort. As a result their vitality is restored, and they leave the massage feeling rejuvenated and whole again.
Raynor Naturopathic Massage draws on techniques from many older styles of massage such as shiatsu, deep tissue massage, Swedish and Remedial massage, Thai massage, Hawaiian lomi lomi massage, reiki, breathing therapies of yoga, reflexology and aromatherapy, combined with many techniques, innovations and insights of Naturopath Brandon Raynor’s 25 years of experience, to make a style of massage that is both extremely powerful and deeply transformative and relaxing.
As well as teaching massage for the last 16 years we also teach short, yet comprehensive, courses in nutrition, herbal medicine, Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine and flower essences by correspondence.
Our massage courses are taught in a simple intensive format of 5 day courses. Our first course is our Certificate course which covers all the essential aspects and core techniques of Raynor massage. The next course is our Diploma course which is an additional 5 days which covers a lot of additional techniques and also covers reflexology and the use of essential oils in massage as well as has a student clinic. We recommend these first two courses for people that want to practice professionally while those that want to just practice on friends and family we recommend the Certificate course for.
Our last course is our Advanced practitioners course which is taught only by the school principal Brandon Raynor, and has a lot of additional techniques to enhance your practice and more effective diagnostic techniques and a more artistic element to it.Our other natural medicine courses are taught through correspondence courses and can be done at your own timetable.

Hear From A Student
The Advanced Diploma course with Brandon changed the way I approach giving a massage treatment and took my bodywork to a new level.
I now have a much deeper understanding of not just how to give a massage, but how to give a massage catered specifically to an individual. Every person has different bodies and emotional states and thus has different needs and thus requires a different strategy when being treated. This is the most valuable lesson I learnt during this course and I’m so grateful I did because I am now achieving incredible results in my bodywork.

"I was working on a yacht at the time I enrolled on the diploma course. My boss kindly offered to pay for me to go on a massage course. I was looking for something that would give me enough knowledge for me to expand on but wasn't going to be too heavy on the academic side. I enrolled on the Diploma as it covered multiple styles and methods of traditional massages in a short amount of time. Little did I know that this course would have one of the biggest impacts on my life than almost any other experienced healing practices I had previously undertaken. Those two week enriched my whole view of the body and mind and much, much more. Brandon and Cory were honest, very open and extremely thorough with their teachings. I never felt the stress of written exams or like I was falling behind at any point as they made sure everyone was keeping up with the information, most of which was hands on. I could write an essay but I'll save time by saying that doors of opportunity that have opened with my qualification have been amazing. In combination with yoga and personal training, massage has become a very powerful tool and the missing link in the puzzle of true health and healing. For that I am incredibly grateful!"
