At the moment we are offering all of our courses in south east Queensland at our Gympie headquarters as Brandon Raynor has recently re-based there. However, if there is a group of people wanting a course in Brisbane over the span of several weekends then we can arrange to teach on Saturdays and Sundays.  Otherwise we strongly encourage you to attend a course in Gympie where you will have the chance to learn directly from Brandon Raynor, the creator of Raynor Massage. New courses are being held every 3 months.

An Introduction to Raynor Massage

Raynor Massage is a massage style developed by Naturopath Brandon Raynor and has become known as one of the most powerful deep tissue styles of massage in the world. This massage not only incorporates standard deep tissue massage techniques but also elements of acupressure, shiatsu massage, Thai massage, Hawaiian massage, Swedish massage and Ayurvedic massage as well as other Naturopathic techniques.

Brandon Raynor talking on the theory and origin of the Raynor style of massage.

We offer Certificate, Diploma, and Advanced Diploma massage courses in Brisbane. Our courses are 1-2 weeks in length, intensive, and hands-on.

Our massage courses in Brisbane are not like any other available in Australia. Although the courses are short, you will learn to massage in a way that will leave your clients wondering where you trained and how this massage is better than any other they have ever experienced. Through intensive hands on training you will learn Raynor Massage. This is what will then build you a successful career as a massage therapist. Customer satisfaction,  plain and simple! If you can provide your clients with a massage that makes them feel alive, refreshed and positively transformed then you will have repeat clients and you will have more referrals than you can deal with.

It was one of the best investments I ever made! I learned so much in that course and I only did the Certificate Course! I could just imagine how much more I’d learn if I was to do the Advanced Diploma…can’t wait.. Raynor massage is one of the best types of massage I’ve ever received!

Learn Effectively

Raynor massage is famous for its deep abdominal massage techniques and its holistic nature of working the body as a whole. It uses techniques such as reflexology of the hands and feet and working bands of tension to get stress and muscular tension to release. Raynor massage is also famous for its synthesis of working with the body-mind-emotions connection.

You will learn techniques and methods that will facilitate the release of deep seated emotions that can be stored in peoples’ bodies. This can be a very powerful and life transforming event for people and we hope that during the course you will not only learn to massage in the Raynor method but also you will undergo your own healing and de-stressing so you can see what it feels like to have a body that is free of tension and emotional stagnation.

We will teach you to get to the source of this muscle tension and relieve it. This heightened sense of touch, and knowledge of how the body functions in a holistic manner, as well as the knowledge of a variety of techniques from the world’s most renowned massage styles, will give you the ability to break up and release this muscle tension from its roots.

A massage that can actually release the tension and frees the body’s subtle energies on this deepest level works wonders with emotional and physical ailments, as many emotional problems actually have physical interaction.

I’ve learnt more in 5 days than I did in a 10 week course I previously did plus I’m confident that I can perform on any client.

Amanda , Sydney, Australia

Great environment, Great teacher, Great Class, Great time!!! I will be recommending this course to everyone. Its great knowing that I have learned more in 2 weeks then some who study for years. Thank you very much. Now I know what I am doing when giving a massage.

Kelli Marks, NSW, Australia

I am astounded. I have had a life changing experience. I learned the true value and technique of massage. I will be grateful always.

Lee Kahler, Australia

An unbelievable life changing experience.It was amazing to experience chi moving through peoples body and seeing emotions coming out.

Justin Thomas, Sydney, Australia

Superb, consistent and continuous. Very relaxed, encouraging and enjoyable environment.

Dr. Owen Hutchings, emergency room physician, Sydney, Australia

How wonderful that massage was that you gave me in the course and how much it has changed my life.

As I mentioned, since my lung collapsing and being off the pill, my cycles were around 54 days long without ovulating. I had tried all kinds of herbs but after the massage, my next cycle was exactly 28 days with ovulating and, as a result, guess what…. I’m pregnant! An absolutely wonderful surprise and byproduct of an amazing therapy. I’m 13 weeks currently and have been really well, happy and healthy since the massage.

I just thought you should know how amazing the therapy actually is and what incredible things it can change not
only mentally but physically and biologically as well. So a BIG thank you for your amazing gift of healing. Todd and I are both so grateful and happy for all of your invaluable help.

Hope you have a great day,

K xoxoxo, Sydney

A Huge Inspiration!!! From my first 15 minutes on day one I knew I had made the right choice. Terry told us his personal reasons along with his experiences learning Brandon Raynor Massage Technique to teaching and travelling the world sharing such a powerful massage technique. “Wow” I remember thinking how easily I related to his previous working situation as I was coming from a financial accountants position which involved, stress, stress and more stress… to learn massage.

The 10 day Brandon Raynor Diploma course run by Terry was fun, relaxing and the experience was awesome. Terry showed such passion and love for massage which made learning the Raynor Massage Technique easy. He’s high quality teaching methods, professionalism, life experiences and his understanding of different cultural backgrounds and needless to say Raynor Massage technique made this intensive hands on course very informative and an absolute pleasure to attend. Terry’s massage skills which I experienced hands on was mind blowing and definitely made a huge impact on my whole outlook on life physically and emotionally.

I now feel I have found my purpose in life – to share the physical and emotional Healing Power of Raynor Massage.
Thank you Terry and Craig, for your caring help and support!

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.

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

I had heard this was one of the best massage schools years ago and finally got the free time to take the course in Sydney recently. Absolutely phenomenal, worth every penny. After the course I now feel confident to go out and start my own massage practice and have no doubt in my abilities to provide a first class , top of the line massage that is rare and valuable and very sought after amongst the myriad of mediocre massage styles that are flooding the market . Five stars to Brandon, super glad I did the course.
