Learn To Massage

We hold Raynor massage courses around New Zealand. At the moment with Covid19 we are focusing on teaching our massage courses online and then when the pandemic finishes and our teachers can come from Australia, where our headquarters is, to New Zealand we will continue with our practical massage courses. All of our courses have the online course as a pre-requisite so we encourage all of our students to complete this first and then come to our online seminars via zoom and then when we can come back to New Zealand we will hold our practical massage courses again. please see this video from the founder of the school, Naturopath Brandon Raynor.

Details of our online course can be found here at our Online Massage Course site. You can take a free preview of 7 random lessons to see if this massage course is for you.

Here is a video of a past student, Lilly McKenzie-Ibanez who now practices on the South Island, about Raynor Massage.

Practical Training

You can train with us in our short and intensive courses designed to get you massaging quickly and effectively. Our courses do not burden you with written exams and irrelevant material. Instead, teachers demonstrate techniques which students practice while the instructor gives individual feedback.

Here is an example of Raynor face massage

Holistic Philosophy

One of the unique elements of Raynor massage is its holistic philosophy. We see the body as an integrated whole, understanding that problem-causing tension can manifest anywhere, even where symptoms are not immediately apparent. Our students learn to track and then remove ‘bands’ of tension that run through the body.

Traditional Eastern understandings of the body have always recognized how emotional tension can affect the physical body. Emotional stress, trauma and everyday living have an impact on the physical body – this leads to tension and tightness in muscles which often causes pain, restriction of movement and long term problems when untreated. You can read more about the philosophy behind Raynor massage here by reading some of the articles written by Brandon:

Here is a video of Brandon talking about our Raynor Naturopathic Massage Courses.

Start Your New Career

We have three levels of Raynor Massage courses. The Online Raynor Naturopathic Massage Course is ideal for massaging friends and family or for getting started in a massage career. Our Professional Raynor Massage Certificate Course includes the online course plus 18 hours of hands on practice supervised by one of our teachers or the school principal Naturopath Brandon Raynor. Our Combined Certificates Course is a 7 day course that has a lot of practical content and is a must for anyone serious about learning Raynor Naturopathic massage.

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.

We usually require a minimum of 4 people. See group packages for more details. Also you can email us and put your name down for any future Raynor Naturopathic Massage Courses in New Zealand.
