We offer our intensive massage courses in Kamloops, British Columbia. Raynor massage incorporates the best massage techniques and styles from around the world, such as Thai massage and Shiatsu.

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.

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 treat the tension which is so often the root cause of pain and restriction. At our college, we focus on treating the whole person, ensuring that they leave a massage treatment feeling better than when they arrived.

Practical Education

Our intensive method of training suits mature people who want to quickly learn an effective and popular style of massage. With our courses, you can start working as a massage therapist within just a few weeks. Students at our courses will be massaging and practicing techniques every day because we want you to learn from experience, not theory and books.

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.

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. Our graduates are not allowed to use the terms “massage practitioner” or “massage therapist”. However, after completing our courses, students can still practice massage 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.
