Massage Courses in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Brandon Raynor’s School of Massage and Natural Therapies teaches intensive massage courses in Edmonton. We offer 5 day Certificate and 10 day combined Certificate and Diploma courses. Our massage courses in Edmonton are popular because we teach a comprehensive system of internationally accredited massage approach called Raynor Naturopathic massage, which is one of the most effective styles of massage therapy in the world today.
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.
Our intensive method of training suits mature people who want to quickly learn an effective and down to earth style of massage. To this end, we offer an intensive 5 day Certificate Course as well as a 10 day Diploma Course and our Advanced Practitioners Diploma Course, taught by the founder of Raynor Massage, Naturopath Brandon Raynor. Students at our courses will be massaging and practising 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.
