The founder of Brandon Raynor’s School of Massage and Natural Therapies School, Brandon Raynor, has taken his 23 years of massage and Naturopathy training, knowledge and experience and created five day, intensive massage courses. The 5 day Raynor Massage Certificate Course and the 10 day combined Raynor Massage Certificate and Diploma classes are held in Auckland and Christchurch in New Zealand on a regular basis since 2003. Brandon Raynor will be personally teaching a course in Auckland in December 2017.
His knowledge in the healing arts ranges from Shiatsu to Thai massage, Hawaiian massage, Ayurvedic massage, Chinese medicine, yoga and Naturopathy. Brandon Raynor has then incorporated the most prominent massage techniques from each of these practices to create his own massage style known as Raynor Massage. In these courses you will be emerged into a hands on training whereby the instructor will give a demonstration to be followed by students taking turns practicing the massage techniques on each other. During this time a Raynor massage instructor will provide constructive feedback on your techniques, thus allowing you to be competent and confident in Raynor Massage in a short duration. Many students also find receiving Raynor Massage throughout the course very healing for their own personal journey.
Effective training, Powerful healing, Transformative lifestyle
Raynor Massage practitioners are innovators and leaders in the field of massage therapy with thousands of satisfied Raynor massage clients all around the world. A key component to Raynor Massage is to address the individual needs of each massage client. In this way, Raynor Massage varies from a typical, regimented massage that is generally structured the same for every person. To do so, we will teach you how to develop and trust your intuition, sense of touch, and how to work in conjunction with the client’s breathing pattern to release blocked energy.
At Brandon Raynor’s School of Massage and Natural Therapies School, we understand that a person is an integrated part of a whole whereby emotional stress, external factors and everyday living can have a significant role in a person’s state of health and may cause tightness in muscles, pain or long term ailments. These factors may also be expressed through residual tension in the body and are often felt in one area of the body but held in a different body part. This is where the band theory of Raynor massage helps to treat the roots of tension and get them out from the source
Raynor Massage Courses will train you to identify the bands in which the tension is held and how to alleviate it. Common origins of tension are usually held in the abdomen, hands, feet and head and so detailed training on these areas comprises a large part of the Raynor Massage courses. It is quite common for a deep tissue Raynor abdominal massage to help a person let go of emotional tension that had been built up in the body for years, feeling rejuvenated and transformed.
Our massage courses in Christchurch have been moved to the nearby spa resort town of Hanmer Springs for the next few years. Our classes are usually a mixture of people from Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington, as well as many other parts of the North and South Island to learn massage from the head of the school Brandon Raynor on his regular trips to New Zealand. After the course you can bathe in the beautiful mineral water hot springs as a way to relax your muscles. For accommodation we recommend www.alpineholidayhomes.co.nz/
