Throughout Canada many people have experienced that the quality of massage delivered by Raynor therapists is of an exceptional nature.

Our massage takes the best out of styles of massage such as shiatsu , deep tissue massage, Hawaiian massage, Ayurvedic massage, Swedish massage and sports massage and takes the best of these and integrates them, according to Naturopathic doctor Brandon Raynor’s 22 years of experience in the field, to make a very powerful holistic style of massage therapy that is becoming wellknown as the most cutting edge style of massage therapy in the world.

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.

Our massage courses do not burden you with written exams and irrelevant material. Instead, a teacher will demonstrate a technique followed by the students practicing on each other while the instructor gives individual feedback. By the end of the first day of the course, you will have already given and received a massage. Our expert teachers will give you constant advice and support as you learn this unique massage style.

Learn Practical Skills

Whether you take the Certificate, Diploma or Advanced Diploma, all of our massage 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.

Our training is enriching and of real value to our students’ careers and therapeutic practice.

Since completing our sessions in November 2006 I have done more than a dozen sessions, a few return visits, numerous referrals and have been asked to join a group of other practitioners.

A participant in some of my classes asked If I could share a session with her, It had me a little stressed, she is an RMT, but the session went great. She could not believe that it had been a month that I had been practicing, she was amazed at the versitility, depth of knowledge and the skills you were able to pass on to us.</p

She has since booked a follow-up session for herself, a session for her husband and two of her RMT colleagues.

Yours in Health,

The course was taught in an easy and very hands on approach which made the course very easy to follow. I am very happy with my choice to practice the Raynor technique and am very excited to begin accumulating clients as I know it is going to help many people. Thank you very much for the opportunity to learn this technique.”

Our teacher was a very good instructor. He puts his heart into his teachings and was very professional. He always went to lengths to make sure that he was understood and that he understood you. It’s almost unbelievable that you can learn such a great technique in 2 weeks!
