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

Our massage courses in Canberra 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.

Raynor Naturopathic Massage has as its goal the aim of finding and then getting rid of all tension in the body, allowing the body to relax and energy to flow freely. It is a holistic, Naturopathic massage, drawing on many thousands of years of massage experience from around the world and drawing it together into one, unique and effective massage. Our short massage courses are hands-on, practical courses designed to get you practising quickly, safely and effectively so that you can provide effective treatments to your clients and begin to build your business as soon as you have completed the course.

For our Australian students, as well as qualifying in our Raynor massage you can go on to get Australian government qualified in the Certificate IV in Massage Therapy and the Diploma of Remedial Massage by completing theoretical aspects of that course with Health Schools Australia. Nurses, other health professionals and some other suitably qualified people may be able to get Australian government qualified just by taking our massage course and then getting Recognition of Prior Learning for their other qualifications with our partner school Health Schools Australia. For more information about this please see our video here where the principal of Health Schools Australia discuss government qualifications and how he recognizes our massage courses in Canberra.

We do not have any courses scheduled for Canberra in 2015 or 2016 but we encourage you to attend one of our courses in either Sydney, Melbourne or the Sunshine Coast.

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.

Our massage courses were developed with the learner in mind by a therapist who has been practicing in the field for many years. They are hands-on and individualized courses, designed to get you massaging from day one without spending time on theory that you never use. In our massage courses you will learn to develop your sense of touch so as to detect muscle tension and blocked energy in its many forms, layers and channels in the individual patient’s body. You will learn to trace problems to their source rather than just treating them locally. For more information please see the articles What is Raynor massage and What is Chi.

Learn Effectively

We train the therapist to work with the whole body and to work to restore it to wellness, you can read more of this in the article What is Health. A client may be getting headaches but the real problem with that person may be tightness in their hands which travels up the arms into the neck and into the head causing headaches. 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 worlds’ 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. Our cutting edge approach to therapeutic massage is one of the best remedies to treat anxiety, depression, deep seated emotional disturbances, stress and can assist in healing back pain, various injuries, repetitive strain injury, pinched nerves, sciatica, muscular spasms, aches, pain, stiffness, migraines, arthritis, scoliosis, and some forms of immobility.

I’ve learnt more in 4 days than I did in a 10 week course I previously did plus I’m confident that I can perform on any client.

Amanda ( Zeno), 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.

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.

Brandon Raynor has developed the most advanced therapeutic massage techniques I have ever felt and seen around the whole world, I was in a near fatal truck accident and was blessed to receive this amazing schooling and therapy 7 years ago. Words are too primitive to discribe the after effects, Now this year Brandon himself presented me my Advanced Diploma, What an honor

to learn from the Principal himself.

Thank you and Blessings on you and your loved ones Brandon

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.
