Intensive Deep Tissue Massage Courses in Ballarat

Raynor Massage is a combination of the most effective techniques from Thai massage, shiatsu, tui na and Swedish massage. Due to its unique nature, our massage courses are developed with the beginner in mind or for massage therapist who wish to learn a new modality.  It was developed by a Naturopath and massage therapist, Brandon Raynor, who has been practising in the field for three decades.

They are hands-on and individualized courses, designed to get you massaging from day one.  You will learn to develop your sense of touch so as to detect muscle tension and blocked energy in its many forms, layers and channels in the individual patient’s body. You will also learn to trace problems to their source rather than just treating them locally. For more information on these principles please see the articles What is Raynor massage, and What is Chi.

We train you  to work with the whole body, mind and soul and to work to restore the client to wellness. A client may be getting headaches but the real problem with that person may be tightness in their hands which travels up the arms into the neck and into the head causing headaches. We will teach you how to get to the source of this muscle tension and relieve it through developing a heightened sense of touch and an understanding of how the body functions in a holistic manner. You will also learn a variety of techniques from the world’s most renowned massage styles.

A massage that can actually release deep seated chronic tension and free the body’s subtle energies on this deepest level works wonders with emotional and physical ailments, as many emotional problems actually have physical manifestations as tense muscles in various parts of the body. Our cutting edge approach to deep 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 teach in our short and intensive massage courses. We respect your time. We know that you are busy and don’t want to waste time and money with filler subjects that are irrelevant. Instead our massage courses aim to only teach the most important skills, techniques, and experiences that will make you a confident and effective massage therapist ready to help others immediately.

If we don’t have a course scheduled during a convenient time for you in Ballarat we have frequent courses around the world. Please see our Worldwide Course Calendar.
