Brandon Raynor Advanced Massage

Individual Focus

Brandon Raynor teaches this course as a clinic with the students as the patients, so each student will receive a significant amount of massage. Most of this course will be focused on treating each of the students as if they were a client and asking what the best strategy is to treat that person. It is recommended that students who attend this course are comfortable at receiving a deep massage. This is because Brandon often works quite deep with people! This is an excellent way of taking your massage skills further and deepening your experience, understanding and abilities. The pace of the course will be intense. This course focuses on each of the students in the class in order to individualize the massage treatment to suit the client.

Brandon Raynor Demonstrating Massage


The advanced course was an amazing experience! It has brought together the Raynor massage for me and taken it to another level. I have had the confidence to go full time as a massage therapist. I feel great in myself after receiving a massage and the benefits are being passed on to my clients!

The Advanced Diploma course with Brandon changed the way I approach giving a massage treatment and took my bodywork to a new level. I now have a much deeper understanding of not just how to give a massage, but how to give a massage catered specifically to an individual. Every person has different bodies and emotional states and thus has different needs and thus requires a different strategy when being treated. This is the most valuable lesson I learnt during this course and I’m so grateful I did because I am now achieving incredible results in my bodywork.

Massage Advanced Diploma FAQ

Is the course residential?

No. You will be responsible for your own accommodation, food and travel, we can however offer suggestions for accommodation near to our massage schools.

What do I need to bring to a course?

You will need to bring comfortable clothing, flat shoes and four large and two small towels. We provide the massage tables for use during the course.

I don’t really believe in Chi and people’s energy. Can I still do this course?

Yes, you don’t necessarily need to agree with a particular philosophical point of view to be able to learn Raynor Massage and give an incredibly effective massage. Do try to come to the course with an open mind – many people do go home with a different understanding of the human body and the body-mind interaction and recognise that there is much to learn from these ancient traditions even if their personal belief system does not integrate it.

No. We will provide a full course handbook and training DVD and give you suggestions for further reading should you wish to add to the knowledge gained on the course.

A truly transformational experience. Receiving a Raynor Naturopathic Massage has unseated deep unwanted tension and emotion I have been carrying around for years. Brandon and Cori not only facilitated this extraction they also mentored and coached us on the practical and soft skills to pass this gift on to others. I have all the skills and confidence to now treat others who are looking to remove unwanted physical, mental and emotional stresses. This is the massage that everyone wants but is so hard to find. Becoming an advanced Raynor practitioner sets you above all other therapist in your field - the amazing results and full bookings are testament to that.

Raynor Massage is so very effective at getting to and eliminating the deepest layers of tension including those held by negative emotions and traumatic experiences. I am not exaggerating when I say that Raynor Massage helped me overcome depression, anxiety issues and other health ailments. It was such a great experience when I took the Diploma course in 2007 and subsequent Advanced classes with Brandon that now Raynor Massage is embedded in my daily life. Extremely happy to be a teacher for this amazing organization and full to the brim with deep gratitude towards my mentor Brandon and the rest of his team. Thank You Brandon Raynor, Thank You!

Brandon's techniques and training are Next level and very hands on. I did the Advanced course what was 7 years ago and witnessed profound emotional and huge Chi releases within myself and also shown how to facilitate the same. Raynor therapy is a priceless experience that shifts energy like I've never seen. Truly a profound modality. Very greatful to have learnt this practice for it gave me the tools,personal experience and awerness of both how to hold space and facilitate when a client is having a release. Also insight how incredibly quick the body can release years of dense energy in one session. Brandon is like a Buddha, incredibly intuitive and wise in his teachings. Certainly opened my eyes of how profoundly awesome the body is

After being diagnosed with rhuemtoid arthritis 18 months ago I had lost alot of strength and was suffering terribly from chronic fatigue. I had also suffered from an incredibly tight and tender big toe, which gives me alot of sciatic pain. I have tried many different techniques and therapies over the years including physiotherapy, bowen therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, and have also seen many healing gurus around the globe to relieve the tension in my toe with no success. After one treatment from Brandon I can say with great relief that my toe is finally free from 40 years of tension. The raynor technique is not only effective, it's absolutely life changing. Brandon's intuition, years of experience, kindness, empathy and compassion make him not only a fantastic healer but also an outstanding teacher. Being in his class has given me the extra energy, confidence and happiness that's had been lacking for some time. Thanks again Brandon. I'm very grateful for all you do!

Just finished Brandon's 2 week certificate and Diploma in massage last week!

I personally found this to be simply amazing and life changing. Everyday I was simply blown away with what we learnt and especially how I felt.

I'm a 38 yr old male with a beautiful wife and 2 young girls and found the 2 week course suited me perfect!! The price was well worth the transformation I have had with the added bonus of becoming a massage therapist. If your thinking of doing this course, its worth it on every level. Brandon is an amazing individual and some one I have come to trust and respect 100%. The skills I learnt can be taught to anyone willing to learn.

I have no hesitation to recommend this amazing course to anyone! If your thinking of doing this course? Its a no lose situation!!

Thank you so much!!
