  • Elements from the world’s most common massage styles—from the East and West

Our Diploma Course Will Take You To A New Level

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 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

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.

Raynor Massage is so very effective at getting to and eliminating the deepest layers of tension including those held by negative emotions and traumatic experiences. I am not exaggerating when I say that Raynor Massage helped me overcome depression, anxiety issues and other health ailments. It was such a great experience when I took the Diploma course in 2007 and subsequent Advanced classes with Brandon that now Raynor Massage is embedded in my daily life. Extremely happy to be a teacher for this amazing organization and full to the brim with deep gratitude towards my mentor Brandon and the rest of his team. Thank You Brandon Raynor, Thank You!

I studied with Brandon in 2004 in Walnut Creek, CA even though I lived in

eastern Montana at the time. There wasn't any massage therapy regulation

in Montana at that time and he gave me the knowledge I needed as a

naturopath to begin offering massage therapy services.

I have since then lived in Arizona where I studied to obtain my AZ State License and I continue to use Raynor Massage a lot in my practice. I currently have returned to Montana and live on the west side of the state. Because Montana now has regulations regarding massage therapy, I have obtained a Montana Massage License as well. I enjoy employing a lot of different massage therapy techniques in my practice, but the Raynor Technique is probably the most popular among my clients.

I am a big fan of Brandon Raynor's School of Natural Therapies, I continue to be reaping benefits from his wonderful deep tissue massage. This has revolutionised my health and well-being as I have endured major surgery on 3 occasions; most of which was in my younger years... Brandon's deep tissue massage lifts out deeply rooted anxieties and stress hidden deep within various tissues, and the relief is wonderful and life enhancing. Also I have learned so much about flower essences from Brandon which has deepened my appreciation and knowldge of the sheer power of flower essences. He has given me flower essences readings too and these have had noteworthy effects on my life in such positive ways. I have purchased a number of excellent books on flower essences on Brandon's recommendations and I look froward in the near future to taking his Wholefood Nutrition course.

Just finished Brandon's 2 week certificate and Diploma in massage last week!

I personally found this to be simply amazing and life changing. Everyday I was simply blown away with what we learnt and especially how I felt.

I'm a 38 yr old male with a beautiful wife and 2 young girls and found the 2 week course suited me perfect!! The price was well worth the transformation I have had with the added bonus of becoming a massage therapist. If your thinking of doing this course, its worth it on every level. Brandon is an amazing individual and some one I have come to trust and respect 100%. The skills I learnt can be taught to anyone willing to learn.

I have no hesitation to recommend this amazing course to anyone! If your thinking of doing this course? Its a no lose situation!!

Thank you so much!!

Brilliant course! Extremely professional and fun at the same time. All practical which is exactly what I needed having studied anatomy and physiology previously. Have been practising massage for 2 years now and honestly, this style is the simplest and most effective I've come across. Find tension and release it! What could be more simpler? Very affordable as well, made back what the course cost me in about 3months! Recommend this course to anyone wanting a life style change without spending 3yrs of study and a huge student loan!
