Raynor Massage Certificate Course

Massage Certificate Course

Massage practitioners are becoming more in demand as people come to understand the importance of natural therapies in supporting a healthy lifestyle. 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 (RNM) combines philosophies and massage traditions from around the world—relaxation elements from Swedish massage, acupressure from Shiatsu, stretches from Thai massage, breathing techniques from yoga, reflexology, etc. RNM also comprises an additional set of powerful massage techniques and theories developed by Brandon Raynor from his 25 years as a Naturopath and massage therapist. By having such a broad scope of knowledge to draw upon, you will have many options on how to adapt the massage to suit the needs of individual clients.

Who is this Massage Certificate Course designed for?

Home care

For people who want to be more proactive in providing preventive care for their family and friends through massage and holistic healing.

Starting a Career

For people who want to get insured, join a reputable massage association and start their own massage practice immediately!

Existing Massage Practitioners

Everyone benefits from Raynor Naturopathic Massage—the therapist and client alike.

A truly transformational experience. Receiving a Raynor Naturopathic Massage has unseated deep unwanted tension and emotion I have been carrying around for years. Brandon and Cori not only facilitated this extraction they also mentored and coached us on the practical and soft skills to pass this gift on to others. I have all the skills and confidence to now treat others who are looking to remove unwanted physical, mental and emotional stresses. This is the massage that everyone wants but is so hard to find. Becoming an advanced Raynor practitioner sets you above all other therapist in your field - the amazing results and full bookings are testament to that.

I have just graduated from the Diploma course held in Auckland, NZ June/July of this year. I am a Natural Therapist in Reflexology, Foot Massage and Foot Joint Mobilisation and in my first couple of days was apprehensive about whether I could do this form of massage but as the days progressed and with Brandons amazing teaching style it did become second nature. It is a course I would highly recommend to a trained professional or a layman. Not only for learning a type of massage that I believe is one of the best that will be of benefit to so many people but also for how the course helps you learn a lot about yourself. The teaching style is so relaxed that it is easy to retain what you have learned and from day one it is all about being hands on. Brandon and Cori make an awesome team and nothing is of trouble to them. They can adapt and cater for all course members learning styles. And a great style of massage as it is not a set routine it can be adapted to meet individual clients needs. The best course I have been on since I started on my "therapist" journey. I know continued support and mentoring will come from Brandon and the school. A trusted and valued tutor and man. I just hope I can do my qualification justice. Thank you Brandon and Cori

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 finished my diploma course with Brandon raynor. The level of skill and precision in which I can now locate and delete tension is amazing. I would of never of thought I would of learned so much in a 2 week period. Brandon is very professional and I would not hesitate in recommending this course to anyone willing to learn how to truly help people. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 weeks in the course and will be pursuing the massage techniques in my medispa in Narellan. Thank you Legend.

I just completed the diploma course in Perth (April 2017) and I just loved everything about it!

I came specially from NZ, so I was already motivated. It was exactly what I wanted. It is more than a simple massage that we all have probably experienced. I had personally personal emotional releases and the last one has been very beneficial. I have been able to finally understand all my anger, sadness that I worked for a lot of years at the emotional level but I never realised that the body keeps the memories as well. The same evening I have been able to forgive myself, and I changed the traumatic images into beautiful images. It is an enormous transformation and it will help me in my future.

Raynor massage are perfect if you are looking for the roots of your tensions, problems. It is powerful, especially if you have already started to work on yourself and if you mix it with other type of healing such as changing diet, meditation, healing, acupuncture etc...

If you are looking for a work conversion, it is a great start. I am just at the beginning of this conversion journey but I am convinced that it was the right move to do this course. Thank you to both Brandon and his lovely wife Cori.

Hello Brandon and Cory, I hope you had a safe trip back to Gympie. Thanks for coming to Perth to present your Certificate and Diploma courses in the Raynor Method of Massage. I very much enjoyed the course and got a lot out of it. Although I have come from a back ground in Swedish style massage concentrating on Injury prevention and rehabilitation, I have not been massaging full time for years and concentrating on a career in the Mining Industry instead. After my role was made redundant I decided to do the Dip Course as a way to learn new skills, techniques, inspire me and re-motivate me in the what has always been my passion and interest by helping people with massage. Your course ticked all the boxes for me. I believe your Bands of Tension theory is the key to unlocking the muscle issues so many people have. I will be getting back into the business of Massage. To this end I have registered my old business name (couldn't believe it was still available) TOTAL MUSCLE MANAGEMENT and will be based in Belmont WA. You have also inspired me into learning more about Aromatherapy and Ayadadic medicine so you will see me again in your correspondence course in the future. Thank you so much for all you have given. Kind regards Maryse.

i fully enjoyed and benefited from what i learnt in this course. these are skills that are useful in what ever you do. the course was short but what you learn is much and the method is so effective and integral in the process of relieving core tension from people. i will never see massage the same again. the course was one of the best experiences and i have been lucky to take part in it

Fantastic. I completed the diploma course some years ago and gained insight and technique that is often not found with massage therapists. I love receiving massage from Raynor practitioners, and anything else for me just isn't good enough. And with my own therapies i have developed a great intuitive style which really addresses clients issues in a holistic and comprehensive way. I highly recommend Raynor massage for anyone wishing to study massage therapy, or for those seeking treatment.

I completed the course in 2009 and the later on completed the advanced course in 2013. Having experienced massage throughout the world , including some amazing work from blind masseuses in Tibet I was looking forward to a change of career if this course delivered what it promised.

It did, in great buckets, my first experience of an emotional release from a client was both humbling and I felt privileged to help with this process.

Having only had an interest in massage , the two week course enabled me to immediately start working on people I knew and those I did not. The transition to getting paid was as easy as finding clients. It is still easy if you just talk to people.

The advanced course rounded out the training and introduced new techniques including a form of what I could only call acupressure with amazing personal results. I would like to personally thank Brandon and Maureen for convincing me to attend.

As an interesting bonus my personal chronic (lie on the floor for 3 days a couple of times a year) back pain completely went and has not re occurred. The change to my personal health and wellbeing as Terry mentioned was an unexpected bonus.

My only complaint is that there are not enough practitioners to go around :)

Well worth a few weeks of your life to learn what is possible if you really listen to what the body is telling you. This is a very intuitive course and anyone with an open mind and heart should do very well.
