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!

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 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.

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!

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.
