Raynor massage is one of the world’s most cutting edge styles of massage therapy. It draws upon ancient massage traditions as well as powerful deep tissue techniques, such as abdominal massage and reflexology. When utilised together, these massage styles become a powerful and transformative healing art.

Welcome to our Raynor Massage School in Auckland, New Zealand. We are an international massage school founded in Australia by Naturopath Brandon Raynor.

Brandon Raynor Naturopath and School Principal

Brandon Raynor has 5 Diplomas in the healing arts ( Diploma of Naturopathy, Diploma of Remedial Massage, Diploma of Shiatsu, Diploma of Chinese Herbal Medicine and a Diploma in Ayurvedic Medicine. He has been practising massage therapy for the last thirty years and has been travelling the world for the last 25 years exploring the best approaches to massage therapy and other healing arts. He started teaching what he had learned in 1997 in Sydney Australia and since then Brandon Raynor’s Massage and Natural therapies College has expanded to teach in many cities in many countries around the world. See here for our full worldwide course calendar.

Brandon’s style of massage is a combination of therapeutic massage, shiatsu, Thai massage, Chinese massage, Ayurvedic massage, joint adjustments and deep tissue massage. He has created many new massage techniques and he has discovered how muscular tension exists in the human body as bands of tension. His manner of teaching is down to earth and straight to the point. Brandon only teaches what he uses and does not just fill a course with unnecessary jargon. Please have a read of some of our past students google reviews of our school in Australia and in New Zealand.

Brandon’s style of massage came to be known as Raynor Naturopathic Massage Therapy as it is truly a unique style of treatment that is extremely effective at getting to the roots of tension in the body and has greatly beneficial effects upon the mind and spirit too. Here is an example of Raynor Massage as practised by the founder of Raynor Massage Naturopath Brandon Raynor.

Why Raynor Massage?

Raynor Massage is very different to most other massage therapies available. It has a holistic understanding of the body, recognizing that both physical and emotional tension will have a negative impact on the physical body. People seek massage treatments for many reasons whether it due to stress, pain or restriction in mobility. Raynor Massage does not just treat the part of the body where that pain or restriction is felt. Nor do we perform a light ‘relaxation massage’ designed to give short term relief. Instead, it is important to find the root of that problem and then to get rid of the tension that is leading to that problem to be felt.

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