Study massage with Brandon Raynor’s School of Massage and Natural Therapies in Kelowna, situated in the beautiful Okanagan Valley of British Columbia.

At the mid-point surrounding the pristine waters of Okanagan Lake is the district of Kelowna where we hold our Okanagan courses. Here you are rarely more than five minutes away from a sandy beach or natural hiking trails. This area is well known for its healing energies and is situated on inactive volcanoes. It is therefore a wonderful location to learn Raynor 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. 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.

Our students don’t just learn to massage the common parts of the body. 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 Therapies, and the International Natural Therapies Association.

In British Columbia, there are some restrictions around who can use certain terms and how much time they have studied for. Although our graduates are not allowed to use the term “massage practitioner” or “massage therapist”, you can still practice professionally after completing our course and use similar terms such as massage professional or Raynor bodywork therapist. You can also still purchase insurance. Read more from the Canadian section of our dedicated insurance and accreditation page here.

We also offer courses that teach other natural therapies. Have a look at our Wholefood Nutrition course, Vegan Nutrition Course, Herbal Medicine course, Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine, Flower Essences, Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology course and Naturopathy course.
