Our Raynor Massage Diploma course combines with our 5 day Raynor Massage Certificate Course.
This programme is designed for those wanting to enter the massage profession or who want to develop their massage skills further. Even if you have extensive massage experience in a different modality you first need to study at Raynor Massage Certificate level before you can study for our Diploma course. You can study it in combination with the Certificate course as detailed here and it is also possible to study the second Diploma week at a different time or in a different location from your Certificate. Many of our students do the two courses together as a 10 day combined Certificate and Diploma course, but it is designed to be flexible to fit around your existing commitments and budget.
On completion of the Diploma course, and ideally having gained experience with using the massage professionally, students are then eligible to join our highest level course, the Advanced Practitioners Course. You can only take the Advanced Practitioner’s course if you already have a Raynor Diploma, regardless of your other qualifications and experience in other massage modalities.
More About Our Raynor Naturopathic Massage Diploma Course
Under the expert teaching of one of our teachers and studying in a group of no more than 20 people to one teacher, we expect that everyone completing the course will be a very good massage practitioner by the time they qualify. Raynor Massage is such a unique massage style you can become incredibly effective with just two weeks of training and be able to integrate both reflexology and aromatherapy into your massage practice.
Our Raynor Naturopathic Massage Diploma course is designed for people who would like to start a new career in the massage industry or for existing health professionals that would like to expand their skill range to include the wide variety of techniques and philosophy that make up Raynor massage.
As with the Certificate course this unique form of massage is taught in a very hands-on way. The tutor input, hands on giving massage and receiving massaged applies for the Diploma course as it does for the Certificate, this is because you will learn so much from both giving and receiving the massage. You will work with different people across the week so that you can gain experience working with different body types while learning how different people hold their tension. You will gain more experience in learning to adapt the depth of the massage so that it is appropriate for the individual client.
On the final day of the course we open the doors for our ‘student clinic’ where we invite members of the public to receive a free massage. This is an integral part of the assessment of the Diploma where you will carry out everything learnt on the course, from taking a case history, selecting oils, giving a full body treatment and discussing aftercare advice with your client.
The aim of the massage remains the same for the Diploma as for the Certificate, you are learning to find tension in the body and how to eliminate it. On the Diploma course this tension release is taken to a deeper level and it is often possible to access tension that has been stored for many years, even since childhood. The Diploma trains the massage therapist to work in greater depth, to track and to release the bands of tension that run through the body.
This Diploma in Raynor Massage Therapy is designed by Brandon Raynor and is only available through the Brandon Raynor School of Natural Therapies. It is run in locations throughout the world. All teachers are Advanced Practitioners in Raynor Massage who have been trained by and have worked with Brandon and whom he has personally approved. All teachers are also practitioners and they also work with Brandon on a regular basis for their own development.
Brandon has spent over twenty five years travelling around the world studying massage and continues to do so today. The Diploma course specifically draws on several more additional disciplines from the worldwide understanding of massage in its focus on both reflexology and aromatherapy, as well as joint mobilisation.
Course days are very intensive and usually run from 9-5pm, Monday to Friday with a 45 min to 1 hour break for lunch each day.
