On a sunny afternoon in Bondi, after a transformative massage session, a curious client inquired how to learn the unfamiliar massage techniques that he had just experienced. Brandon Raynor, the massage practitioner, informed him that the massage techniques were a fusion of his own unique style along with a combination of different modalities that he had learned at various natural therapies schools over the past ten years. Understanding time limitation, Brandon reckoned that he could train someone to be an effective massage therapist in a quicker amount of time than traditional massage schools he had attended. Prompted by the challenge to improve the quality and efficiency of massage education, Brandon Raynor’s School of Natural Therapies was born.
Since our first massage course in Sydney, Australia in 1997, we have expanded to teach around the globe, but our core principles have remained the same:
First, the goal of every massage is for the practitioner to help their client to free up any tension, stress and emotional blockages in a holistic manner.
Second, to focus on hands-on learning, communication and empathy rather than theoretical material and rote learning. By teaching only practical and relevant material, students develop competency and confidence in holistic healing quicker.
Third, to make the courses more affordable and condensed with information then a traditional school.
Lastly, to not be limited to any one massage modality or tradition of healing, but rather to continually evolve and improve massage skills.
To represent the needs of our graduates, we established INTA (The International Natural Therapies Association), which provides a forum for professional development and a worldwide referral network for those looking for a practitioner. INTA also allows students to receive the most up to date information from the School.
Now that we have told about our endeavours into holistic healing – enrol now so we can help you get started with yours!

What is Raynor Naturopathic Massage?
Raynor Naturopathic Massage is a holistic system of bodywork developed by Naturopath Brandon Raynor. Its origins are in Ayurvedic Massage, Chinese Medicine, Lomi Lomi, reflexology, Shiatsu and yoga breathe work. There is a special emphasis on the Eastern medical theory where the physical body is a gross manifestation of a subtle body composed of a life force (chi or prana), emotions and other subtle energies, and that each are related and have an effect on each other. Physical or emotional stressors can lead to a blockage or disruption in the flow of chi or prana that can cause bones to shift out of place or create tension in the body.
