Massage Courses in New Zealand

We regularly hold massage courses in Auckland and Christchurch, giving you the choice of the 5 day Raynor Massage Certificate Course or the 10 day combined Raynor Massage Certificate and Diploma classes.

You can train with us in our short and intensive courses designed to get you massaging quickly and effectively. Our courses do not burden you with written exams and irrelevant material, instead a Raynor massage teacher will demonstrate a Raynor bodywork technique followed by the students massaging each other while the instructor gives individual feedback. By the end of day one of the course you will have already given and received a massage, this is designed to allow you to quickly develop your skills, intuition and confidence in massaging. Our expert teachers will give you constant advice and support as you learn this unique massage style.

Raynor Massage Courses in New Zealand

Raynor Massage is not like most massage available, we see the body as an integrated whole, tension in one part of the body may be held in a different part so we teach you to track and then to get rid of the ‘bands’ of tension that run through the body. We take the lead from Eastern understandings of the body, recognising the importance of how emotional tension can effect the physical body. Emotional stress, trauma and everyday living has an impact on the physical body leading to tension and tightness in muscles that can lead to pain, restriction of movement and long term problems if this is not treated. Part of Raynor treatment is abdominal massage and this can often lead to an ‘emotional release’ as the body lets go of emotional tension that has been held in the body, sometimes for many years.

You can read more about the philosophy behind Raynor massage here by reading some of the articles written by Brandon:

We have three levels of Raynor Massage courses. The 5 day Raynor Massage Certificate course  is ideal for massaging friends and family or for getting started in a massage career. Our  10 day Raynor Massage Diploma Course, which also incorporates the 5 day Certificate is for those who are serious about a career in massage. The Advanced Practitioner’s Diploma is only available to students who already have our Diploma and who ideally also have experience in using the massage. The Advanced course is only taught by the head of the School, Brandon Raynor, with courses spanning across the world.

You can only qualify in Raynor Massage through Brandon Raynor’s School of Massage and Natural Therapies. All of our teachers are personally selected and trained by Brandon Raynor, undertake regular professional development working alongside Brandon. To ensure the quality of our teaching, we have a very small team of teachers, some of whom travel globally to teach.

Discounts are also available if you book to study all three courses at the same time, even if you split when and where you study the courses. Use our Contact Us form for more details or to discuss your individual needs.

We do not teach a regimented form of massage, as a Raynor massage will vary to suit the needs of each client. We teach you to massage areas like the stomach, ribcage, feet, hands, head, sacrum and how to free energetic blockages in the body. In addition, our Raynor courses will help you to develop and trust your intuition, sense of touch, and to work with the client’s breathe to unlock deep seated stress and blocked energy.
