Brandon Raynor’s Massage and Natural Therapies School has been teaching Raynor massage courses in New Zealand for over 20 years and internationally for almost 25 years. We are now offering massage courses in New Plymouth, New Zealand.
Raynor massage is a unique form of deep tissue massage therapy that is designed to completely eliminate residual tension from the client’s body. It also draws upon Eastern massage styles like Shiatsu, tui na and Thai massage by working on lines or bands of tension caused by energetic blockages in the person.
Whether it’s the Certificate, Combined Certificates or Advanced Diploma Course, all of our courses focuses on practical skills. That is why at our massage school, nearly 80 percent of class hours are dedicated to our students to practice massaging other students, receiving massage, and observing the teacher demonstrate how to massage. The remaining 20 percent of class hours are spent discussing the theory of Raynor massage and other subjects such as hygiene, professional ethics, contraindications, the theory of hand and foot reflexology and the qualities of different aromatherapy oils, which are covered in the Combined Certificates course.
Our massage style is a form of deep tissue massage, but, after you have learned this technique, you’ll be able to adjust it completely based on the specific needs of your client to make it either deep or soft tissue.
We don’t teach massage as a set routine. We teach you to make the massage suit the personnot the person suit the massage. Instead, we teach you how to identify and release tension. We will train you in not only how to massage the common parts of the body which many therapists are familiar with such as arms, back, and legs, but we will also show you the significance of hand and feet massage, scalp and face massage and most importantly, abdominal massage. In Japanese medicine, the abdomen is considered to be the hara, or centre of a human being. Therefore, abdominal massage can bring positive effects to the clients physical and emotional well being. For many people, abdominal massage can release a lot of old emotional tensions which are being held. This emotional release can deliver great benefits to an individual since old patterns of stagnation- both emotional and physical are released.
Once you have completed our massage course, whether the Certificate or Combined Certificate massage course in New Plymouth you’ll be a qualified massage therapist. Thus, you’ll be able to get public liability and malpractice insurance.
