Brandon Raynor’s College of Massage and Natural Therapies is an international massage college that offers massage courses in British Columbia, Canada. We have developed a unique way of teaching massage that allows us to offer short and intensive massage courses.

Learn To Massage

Our massage courses in British Columbia are are an intensive, effective and experiential way to learn to massage. We offer short massage courses that teach you to give the best massages your clients have ever had. They will leave feeling rejuvenated and with much less muscular tension and stress.

Raynor massage incorporates elements of Shiatsu, Thai massage therapy, Ayurvedic massage therapy, sports physiotherapy as well as conventional remedial 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. He has been personally teaching massage for more than 25 years, and continues to work regularly with students and teachers to ensure the highest quality of education. To learn more about how Raynor massage is taught, watch the video below.

Practical Education

We teach Raynor Massage via intensive and hands-on training. This is because we know that this is what will then build you a successful career as a massage therapist. Customer satisfaction, plain and simple! If you can provide your clients with a massage that makes them feel alive, refreshed and transformed in a positive way, then you will have repeat clients and referrals. If you’d like to learn more, read this quick comparison of our Diploma of Raynor Massage Therapy to the Government Accredited Diploma of Remedial Massage.

Progress Quickly

Our massage courses are a short and easy way to bypass the long route of becoming a registered massage therapist. Despite the shorter length, the quality of the course and the techniques we teach is actually much higher than the registered massage therapist courses. Our accelerated classes are more effective because we take a hands on approach and have you massaging and receiving a massage from day one. Each class begins with a demonstration given by a Raynor massage instructor followed by students practicing the techniques on each other while the instructor provides one-on-one feedback. In this way, instructors will be able individually assist students, ensuring they leave the course confident as Raynor Massage practitioners.

Insurance & Accreditation

Graduates of our massage classes are able to obtain fully comprehensive malpractice and professional indemnity insurance after completing the course. In British Columbia, there are some restrictions around who can use certain terms, such as massage therapist or RMT. You can still practice massage after taking our courses, but we recommend avoiding these terms. You can also set up a massage business or work for a clinic or spa. Because the investment in our courses is minimal in both financial and time costs, we consider it a more worthwhile investment than a longer course.
