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.
To hear Brandon Raynor talk about Raynor Massage we recommend watching this video of Brandon introducing the Raynor Massage concepts to students at a Raynor Massage course:
We encourage you to explore our massage videos for more information.
Brandon Raynor brings more than 22 years of experience in the field of massage therapy and natural medicine in designing these courses. He holds 5 diplomas in the healing arts and has condensed the years of learning and practical experience that he has done into making sure that his students are learning massage in the way that will bring out their best as therapists.
He takes techniques and ideas from all major worldwide massage styles and condenses them into one technique designed to get to the core of what it means to be a professional massage therapist.

Learn Effectively with our Raynor Massage Courses
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.
Here is a video of Brandon Raynor discussing with students what they will learn throughout the Raynor Massage Course:
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.
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.
This is what we strive to pass on and teach in as short and intensive a massage course as possible.
We respect your time. We know that you are busy and don’t want to waste time with filler subjects and irrelevant learning that is at the expense of learning the really important skills and techniques and experiences that actually make a person a massage therapist that stands out in their field.
I now feel a skillful massage therapist and I witnessed first hand the emotional outpouring and physical healing from a massage session but I don’t want to recommend this massage course because there will be too many well trained massage therapists practicing!

A Little History
We have been holding our Raynor Massage Courses in Brisbane, for more than 12 years now. Starting off in Paddington, Brisbane, we are now a worldwide massage school teaching our unique style of massage. Our teachers travel around the world constantly and therefore we do not single locations in most cities such as Brisbane, but rather we hire venues for each course.
As well as teaching in Brisbane, we hold courses in Murwillumbah in Northern NSW that are personally taught by the founder of the school Naturopath Brandon Raynor. We also hold courses all over Australia and many other parts of the world.

Completing the 10 day Brandon Raynor Massage Diploma course has allowed me to change my lifestyle. I now am a practicing massage therapist, with a wide range of clients and the ability to choose my own timetable, and I have the satisfaction of providing a service to people that enriches their lives (which of course enriches mine!) While I was sceptical at first about the ability to learn these skills in just ten days, the wonderful teachers and teaching environment provided by the Brandon Raynor School of Natural Therapies enabled me to not only learn the skills but gain the confidence to practise remedial massage on members of the public and establish my own business. If you are looking to get into massage, then the BRSNT 10 day diploma course is definitely for you.Raynor Massage Diploma CourseWritten by: LisaDate Published: 03/01/2013
I have just completed my Massage Certificate Course in Brisbane. In the morning of Day 1, I was extremely unsure and very nervous of what to expect. I knew that I had saved for this for a very long time and I was hoping that it would be all worth it. By lunchtime, I knew I was in the hands of something special. Ray’s approach to all his students, including myself, was most professional and impressive. He made everyone feel extremely comfortable. After the morning session, the room sounded like a public bar instead of a morgue. By the last day, we were all great friends. I finished the course meeting new friends but most of all being so confident in myself as a massage therapist. I wish to give Ray and David the highest accreditation for their professionalism.Raynor Massage Certificate CourseWritten by: Julie TDate Published: 07/18/2011
Hi Team! I have just completed the Massage Certificate course in Brisbane (November 02).I knew I wanted to do a massage course but how do I find the right one? Well, I knew I wanted something short and intensive, but did anyone offer this course I was after? After searching the Internet I came across Brandon Raynor’s School of Natural Therapies. After reading everything on this website, it sounded perfect and I enrolled.
I was in a class of 14 students, all anxious and eager to learn. Our teacher was a great inspiration and very easy to listen to and understand, with a lot of patience. I was the only student in the class who had never had a professional massage, so I was ‘dobbed in’ by one of the other students to volunteer as the ‘guinea pig’. Ray was going to give me a full body massage to demonstrate to the class. I remember coming out in just my briefs with a towel wrapped around me, feeling vulnerable in front of everybody. This was my first deep tissue massage. After Ray finished my massage, we all took a lunch break. I remember feeling very emotional, (which I found out later, that this is normal), so I went for a long walk and rang my fiancée and cried. Don’t get me wrong, at the time I didn’t know what was happening to me but afterwards, I felt a big sense of relief that a lot of burden and stress had just left my body and I felt more Free than ever!
I went back to the class and told Ray and the students what had just happened, I was told this is absolutely normal and can happen with your first deep tissue massage and especially if you are a sensitive person, which I am. This was proof of one of the very powerful benefits that massage can provide. My life has not been the same since. I have found I released a lot of emotional baggage which I may have been carrying around for years, not even realising, and I have a new sense of calmness about me and find that the ‘little things’ don’t seem to bother me like they used to.
This is the most amazing natural experience I have ever had and want to thank Brandon Raynor and the rest of the team involved for producing and delivering an amazing course.I highly recommend doing this course, it will change your life! I can’t wait to get established in my own business so I too, can show others the powerful benefits massage has to offer. I can’t wait for the Massage Diploma course.
Kind regards.Raynor Massage Certificate CourseWritten by: Kelly Michelle SmithDate Published: 02/14/2009
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Level 1 course. I have already voiced my opinion to all my family and friends, but would like to tell you guys how appreciative I am of what you taught me! It was possibly the most beneficial 4 days of my entire life and I am amazed at how much I learnt and how much it actually HAS changed my life. I have to admit that I was very sceptical at first and did not believe that a whole certificate worth of work could be done in 4 days and that it couldn’t possibly change my life like the people whose stories I read in the flyer…but it has!!!Raynor Massage Certificate CourseWritten by: Ligre CampherDate Published: 07/17/2012
