Raynor Massage Diploma Course Level 3 (Advanced Certificate Course in Australia)

5-Day Raynor Massage Diploma Course Level 3 (Advanced Certificate Course in Australia)

Our Raynor Massage Diploma course is designed to build on your massage skills. You will be taught more advanced techniques, which combine with our 5-day Raynor Massage Certificate Course. This course is designed to give you the confidence you need to bring your clients to a new level of health.

What You Will Learn

The Diploma course is designed for students who want to develop their massage skills further as well as new massage therapists entering the profession. Many of our students do the two courses together as a 10 day combined Certificate and Diploma course. If this doesn’t suit you, it’s also possible to study the second Diploma week at a different time or in a different location from your Certificate. It is designed to be flexible to fit around your existing commitments and budget. Even if you have extensive massage experience in a different modality, first you need to take the Raynor Online Course Level 1 and the Raynor Massage Certificate Level 2 and before you can study for our Level 3 Diploma course.

In Australia, the equivalent to the Diploma Course is the called the Advanced Certificate Course level 3. The content is the same.

The course is only available through the Raynor College of Massage & Natural Therapies because all our teachers are Advanced Practitioners in Raynor Naturopathic Massage.  Brandon Raynor has spent over twenty five years travelling around the world studying massage and continues to do so today. These teachers have have been trained by and have worked with Brandon, and he has personally approved them to teach. Our teachers are also practitioners, and they work with Brandon on a regular basis for their own development. The Diploma course specifically draws on several more additional disciplines from the worldwide understanding of massage. There is a focus on foot and hand massage reflexology, aromatherapy and joint mobilization.

On completion of the level 3 Diploma course, and ideally having gained experience with using the massage professionally, students are then eligible to join our highest level course, the Level 4 Advanced Practitioners Course. You can only take the Level 4 Advanced Practitioner’s course if you already have a Level 3 Raynor Massage Diploma, regardless of your other qualifications and experience in other massage modalities.

Course Outline

If you’d like to see what comprises the Certificate courseplease see the 5-day Raynor Massage Certificate Course. The Diploma course covers the following:

  • Joint mobilization techniques for the toes, fingers, ankles, wrists, hips, back and sacrum
  • Special moves that enable a person to give more pressure for clients that like deeper massage
  • Using the feet to walk on the hands and feet of the client and for smaller people, the technique of walking on the back of the client

  • Feedback to enable you to become a better practitioner

  • Student clinic to get feedback and develop confidence in treating real clients

Learn Advanced Techniques

Accelerated Expertise

Our Raynor Naturopathic Massage Diploma course is designed for people who would like to start a new career in the massage industry. It is also a good choice for existing health professionals who would like to expand their skill range to include the wide variety of techniques and philosophy that make up Raynor massage. The expert teaching provided and the benefits of studying in a group of no more than 20 students to one teacher means that we expect that everyone who completes the course can give an effective therapeutic massage. Raynor Massage is such a unique massage style, if you are focused then you can become incredibly effective with just two weeks of training. We will also teach you to integrate both reflexology and aromatherapy into your massage practice.

The aim of the massage remains the same for the Diploma as for the Certificate. Essentially, you will learn to find tension in the body and eliminate it. On the Diploma course, your ability to release tension is taken to a deeper level. 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 a more extensive manner in order to track and release the bands of tension that run through the body.

Practical Education & Assessments

We teach massage in a uniquely hands-on manner. The tutor input and hands-on massage learning method 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.

Course days are very intensive and usually run from 9-5pm, Monday to Friday with a 1 hour break for lunch each day.

Massage 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.

Do I have to do lots of reading and academic study?

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.

Can I get insured from this course?

We work with a number of insurance companies, in all the countries we train in, who offer insurance for our students. Click here to view the full details.

I just completed the diploma course in Perth (April 2017) and I just loved everything about it!
I came specially from NZ, so I was already motivated. It was exactly what I wanted. It is more than a simple massage that we all have probably experienced. I had personally personal emotional releases and the last one has been very beneficial. I have been able to finally understand all my anger, sadness that I worked for a lot of years at the emotional level but I never realised that the body keeps the memories as well. The same evening I have been able to forgive myself, and I changed the traumatic images into beautiful images. It is an enormous transformation and it will help me in my future.
Raynor massage are perfect if you are looking for the roots of your tensions, problems. It is powerful, especially if you have already started to work on yourself and if you mix it with other type of healing such as changing diet, meditation, healing, acupuncture etc...
If you are looking for a work conversion, it is a great start. I am just at the beginning of this conversion journey but I am convinced that it was the right move to do this course. Thank you to both Brandon and his lovely wife Cori.

I have to thanks Brandon for that, he is just an awesome human being... ...I learned excellent massage techniques too, but I learned more about myself after the course... I’m Looking forward to taking the advanced course in the future!

This course was such an eye opener for me! I completed the diploma in Hanmer Springs with Brandon and Cori. The pair complemented each other perfectly in their teaching styles and I particularly loved how much hands on practise we got to do over the 2 weeks. Not only do you get taught the tools to offer Raynor massage, but also get to experience first hand the incredible effects it can have on you (that's if/when you are the demonstration student!). Thanks again Brandon and Cori :)

If you're looking for a one stop shop for massage and actually want a career of helping people, not just giving them temporary relief, look no further!!! Do not waste 12 months of your life learning a routine massage. If you truly wish to learn a technique from one of the best in the industry, Brandon Raynor is your man! Be prepared to learn nearly 30 years worth of refined into 10 days (for the Diploma). Be prepared to learn a lot about yourself and others, for some of us, the course changed our lives. Brandon is a very humble person with a what-you-see-is-what-you-get attitude, caring, very approachable, knowledgeable and can read you like a book. Thanks to Brandon for his time, assistance and fantastic style of teaching. My career change is a sure thing and the kudos go to Brandon! Regards, Mira

I have had the pleasure of learning this awesome technique of massage from what i would describe , a master of his art. Brandons skills and the way he teaches have been very inspiring. The knowledge and skills i have learnt in the first 40 hour course have proven to me, Brandon is genuienly out to pass his knowledge on to his students in the quickest and most effective way. If you want to learn the art of massage and tension release in the body this course is the one you need. Next week i am back to do the 40 hour diploma ... Cant Wait !!!! Thanks so much Brandon this has been life changing for me .. Todd

I completed my certificate and diploma Raynor massage course in the beautiful Hanmer Springs NZ at the end of last year 2016. Slightly hesitant/skeptical to sign up, but boy was I blown away even after the first session. I've never experienced a massage so powerful and effective. Brandon and Cori are lovely souls and a perfect team to teach the ropes to this special technique. Make sure you sign up for the Certificate AND Diploma as after the first week you really start to get the hang of it, so are able to learn additional skills and get extra practice in! (plus as a bonus you have more chances to receiving massage from Brandon or Cori!!!! ;))
