Raynor massage combines traditional deep tissue techniques with World massage styles like Shiatsu, Thai Massage and reflexology. We have been teaching Raynor massage courses in New Zealand for more than 15 years.

Welcome to our Raynor Massage School in Tauranga, 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.

Our youtube site has more than 43,000 subscribers from all over the world. You are welcome to browse over 300 videos that we have on our site. You can access the main Raynor massage youtube site here.

Our main course that we will be teaching in Tauranga will be our Professional Raynor Massage Certificate Course, which is a combination of our online course with our 18 hour hands on seminar.

Our next course that we have planned for Tauranga will be held on November 24th and 25th, 2020.

A large part of our profits go towards our Raynor Naturopathic Gardens and Wildlife Refuge, just north of the Sunshine Coast in Australia

Learn To Massage

Raynor Massage is very different to most other massage therapies available. We have a holistic understanding of the body, recognizing that both physical and emotional tension will have a negative impact on the physical body. Massage treatments are popular for many conditions, such as stress, pain or restriction in mobility. We do not treat symptomatically or only focus on problem areas. Nor do we perform a light ‘relaxation massage’ designed to give short term relief. Instead, we know that it is important to treat the tension which is so often the root cause of pain and restriction.

Progress Quickly

Our intensive method of training suits mature people who want to quickly learn an effective and popular style of massage. You can start working as a massage therapist within a few weeks because we have worked hard to ensure that our courses are practical and hands-on. What we want is for you to learn by massaging instead of learning theory. Students at our courses will be massaging and practicing techniques every day.

Learn Practical Skills

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 don’t just learn to massage the common parts of the body, such as the neck, back, arms and legs. We believe that it’s important that you learn the significance of hand and feet massage, scalp and face massage and most importantly, abdominal massage. Japanese medicine considers the abdomen 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.

Get Accredited & Insured

Our courses are accredited with the International Institute for Complementary TherapiesThe Massage Association of Australia, and the International Natural Therapies Association. You can get insured to practice massage in New Zealand after completing our courses, read more from our dedicated insurance and accreditation page here.
