Welcome to our Raynor Massage School in Palmerston North, New Zealand. We are an international massage school founded in Australia by Naturopath Brandon Raynor. Brandon Raynor’s Massage and Natural Therapies School has been teaching Raynor massage courses in New Zealand for 18 years and internationally for 23 years.

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 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.

Whether it’s the Certificate, Diploma 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 Diploma 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 person not 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.
