Brandon Raynor’s School of Massage and Natural Therapies in Vancouver is an international massage college that offers intensive massage courses in Vancouver and in more than 30 locations worldwide. We have an exemplary style of massage and a unique way to train people in massage that allows us to offer a short intensive 5 day Raynor Massage Certificate Course in Vancouver. We also offer an additional Diploma course in other locations outside of BC and this will soon also be available online.
We have many graduates in Vancouver and all over British Columbia practising our style of massage successfully in spas, gyms, cruise ships, massage establishments and in private practice, both full and part time.
Our style of deep tissue massage incorporates elements of Shiatsu, Thai massage therapy, Ayurvedic massage therapy, Sports massage therapy as well as conventional Therapeutic massage. The courses were designed by internationally trained Naturopath and Australia based massage therapist Brandon Raynor, a well known innovator in the field of massage therapy.
Our massage courses in Vancouver are a short and easy way to bypass the long route of becoming a BC registered massage therapist. However the quality of the course and the technique of massage that we teach is actually much higher than the RMT courses. Our accelerated classes are more effective because we take a hands on approach and have you massaging and receiving a massage from Day 1. Each class will begin with a demonstration given by a Raynor massage instructor followed by students practising the techniques on each other while the instructor provides one-on-one feedback. In this way, instructors will be able to address areas of improvement so that students leave the course confident as Raynor Massage practitioners. Many people not only find that receiving massages in class are a great way to reinforce class lessons but Raynor Massage is very healing for those receiving it.
We also hold Raynor massage course all over the world. Please see our Worldwide Raynor massage course calendar for more details.

In BC Although our graduates are not allowed to use the term “massage therapy” or “massage therapist” you can still practice professionally after completing our course and just use terms such as massage professional or Raynor bodywork therapist. You can also still get insured and so it makes no real sense why someone would want to spend 3 years and $30,000 plus lost income for three years to train at a more bureaucratically inclined school.

You can get insured and set up a business or work for someone else after completing our course. Its much more economical than spending three years at a big massage college
