Become a fully qualified massage therapist with our intensive massage courses in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. Learn Raynor massage, a unique style that takes the best from traditional world massage styles.

What Is Raynor Massage?

Raynor massage is different to other massage styles because it focuses on removing the root causes of tension, thereby truly healing clients on a deeper level. We don’t just treat the symptoms, and therefore our clients get results that other styles of massage do not. Our Raynor massage courses were developed by internationally trained Naturopath and Australia based massage therapist Brandon Raynor, a well known innovator in the field of massage therapy. He has been personally teaching massage for more than 25 years, and continues to work regularly with students and teachers to ensure the highest quality of education.

Learn Practical Skills

Our intensive method of training suits mature people who want to quickly learn an effective and popular style of massage. Students at our courses will be massaging and practicing techniques every day.

Whether it’s the Certificate, Diploma or Advanced Diploma Course, all of our courses focus on practical skills. Generally speaking, our students spend 80% of class hours practicing, receiving and observing massage. We spend the remaining 20% discussing the theory of Raynor massage and other subjects. These include hygiene, professional ethics, contraindications, the theory of hand and foot reflexology and the qualities of different aromatherapy oils. Our students also don’t just learn to massage the common parts of the body, such as the neck, back, arms and legs. We give attention and focus to other important therapeutic areas such as the hands, feet and abdomen.

Insurance & Accreditation

Our massage training courses in St. John’s are fully accredited and enable you to get the highest level of professional indemnity insurance needed to practice massage. For more information, read our dedicated insurance page, about the International Institute for Complementary Therapies, and the International Natural Therapies Association.

British Columbia has regulation over the use of some terms, such as massage therapist or practitioner. We advise our students in St. John’s to use terms like Raynor bodyworker, or Raynor massage professional rather than the above terms.
