Brandon Raynor’s College of Massage and Natural Therapies delivers high quality massage courses in Terrace, BC and all around Canada. Raynor massage encompasses the best techniques from styles all around the world, such as Shiatsu, reflexology and Swedish massage.

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 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. To this end, we offer an intensive 5 day Certificate Course as well as a Diploma Course and our Advanced Practitioners Diploma Course. 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.

Get Accredited & Insured

Our courses are accredited with the International Institute for Complementary Therapies, and the International Natural Therapies Association.

There are no massage regulations in Nova Scotia so anyone can practice massage and advertise as a massage therapist. If you’d like to get insurance, we recommend the Canadian Yogic Alliance. Read more from the Canadian section of our insurance and accreditation page here.

Our Courses In Terrace

We offer massage courses in a variety of locations around Canada, trying to travel both East and West. If our locations are not convenient, we would be happy to travel and teach a custom massage course. We usually require a minimum of four people to deliver a personalized course. If you’re interested but not sure, feel free to email us and we can walk you through your options or put your name down for any future Raynor Massage Courses near you.
