Raynor massage courses in Brisbane
Brandon Raynor’s School of Massage and Natural Therapies has been teaching our Raynor massage courses in Brisbane since 2000. Over the last 12 years since our humble beginnings in Paddington we have grown to become one of the worlds’ leading cutting edge massage schools holding our massage courses in more than 20 locations all over the world on a regular basis.
Our massage courses in Brisbane have become very well known as an intensive way to learn high quality massage in a time and cost efficient manner. We design our massage courses for mature people who don’t want to spend years of their life at a massage college where they are treated like just another number.
Our massage courses are small and everyone is treated as an individual and our massage is made to suit each individual. We teach people to find tension in the body and identify the cause of that tension. So tension could be in the back but the cause of that tension could be in the feet or the belly. We teach our students to diagnose each person as an individual and to look at how each person can receive a massage treatment that will best suit their needs.
Raynor Massage is a distinct form of massage that has some of its origins in other styles of massage such as remedial massage, Swedish, massage, therapeutic massage, Deep tissue massage and oriental styles of massage such as Shiatsu, Chinese massage, Ayurvedic massage, Thai massage and Hawaiian lomi lomi massage.
As well as this aspects of yoga such as breathwork are combined into this unique massage style.
We teach our massage courses in Brisbane in a 3 part program. Our 5 day intensive massage certificate course is our “nuts and bolts” course designed to give people an introduction to Raynor massage but also to provide the basic framework upon which the next courses will be based. This course is suitable for complete beginners as well as people experienced in other forms of massage.
Our 10 day Massage Diploma course is for people that want to seriously practice massage as a career. This covers all the fundamental aspects of Raynor Massage in more depth as well as gives an introduction to Raynor reflexology and an introduction to the use of essential oils or aromatherapy oils into a massage treatment. We have a student clinic at the end of the last day of course.
For very serious students we have the Advanced practitioners course which is another 5 day course taught by the founder of Raynor massage Brandon Raynor . It covers very advanced aspects of Raynor massage such as deep abdominal massage, adjustments of the neck and spine, moving the chi in the body and deep emotional releases.is course where the public may come in for a massage.

5 Day Raynor Massage Certificate
Our 5 day certificate course in Raynor Massage is 5 full days of intensive “hands-on” massage training taught regularly in Brisbane. This one week massage course runs from 9 am to 5pm from Monday to Friday every couple of months. During the course you will learn the basic essence of Raynor massage including all the major parts of the body as well as the abdominal area. You will start massaging from Day 1 of the course with very little time spent in a non practical way after the 3 hour introductory talk which covers contraindications, hygiene, professional ethics and other aspects of theory associated with Raynor massage. The remainder of the massage course is spent either massaging, being massaged, or watching the teacher demonstrate and talk through a Raynor bodywork treatment. This course will prepare you for the Raynor Massage Diploma.
10 Day Raynor Massage Certificate & Diploma
Following the 5 days of the Raynor Massage Certificate course program the Raynor Massage Diploma Course teaches you more advanced aspects of the bodywork including more practice at the techniques, reflexology of the feet and the hands, and an introduction to aromatherapy. The course culminates in a student clinic where members of the public are invited to receive a session from one of the students which is also an opportunity for people who are interested in attending one of our courses to receive a $20 massage and judge for themselves whether our training is right for them. If you would like to book into one of our student clinics please contact us. The Massage Diploma Course or the Advanced Raynor Massage Diploma is the recommended course for people who would like to enter the massage profession as a career.
Advanced Raynor Massage Diploma
Our Advanced Raynor Massage Diploma course is advanced training for experienced graduates of the Raynor Massage Certificate course and is taught by the principal of the school Brandon Raynor. You will learn how to fine tune massage techniques and to develop effective strategies to massage people while focusing on the chi release and emotional release aspects of massage. This 5 day intensive course for Raynor Massage Practitioners focuses on developing the practitioner’s ability as a refined massotherapy artist in finding and removing tension from the body. During this course participants are also often able to receive treatments from Brandon Raynor, and so experience first hand the benefits of Raynor bodywork from its founder. These courses are held on a regular basis in Brisbane – please see the course timetable for further details.

Massage Course Testimonial
Words cant describe this course. Its an experience that incorporates and harmonizes the mind, the body and the spirit! I’ll never be the same. Thank You!
Tara Nelson (firstname.lastname@example.org), Completed Raynor massage course in Brisbane
A brilliant, intensive course with real world application – not just a theoretical course. One can walk out of the 10 day intensive and feel ready to practice competently. Also appreciated the small, practical, high quality range of complementary products you had available for sale.

Hi Team! I have just completed the 4-day Level 1 massage course in Brisbane (November 02).I knew I wanted to do a massage course but how do I find the right one? Well, I knew I wanted something short and intensive, but did anyone offer this course I was after? After searching the Internet I came across Brandon Raynor’s School of Natural Therapies. After reading everything on this website, it sounded perfect and I enrolled.
I was in a class of 14 students, all anxious and eager to learn. Our teacher was Ray Cooper, who was a great inspiration and very easy to listen to and understand, with a lot of patience. I was the only student in the class who had never had a professional massage, so I was ‘dobbed in’ by one of the other students to volunteer as the ‘guinea pig’. Ray was going to give me a full body massage to demonstrate to the class. I remember coming out in just my briefs with a towel wrapped around me, feeling vulnerable in front of everybody. This was my first deep tissue massage. After Ray finished my massage, we all took a lunch break. I remember feeling very emotional, (which I found out later, that this is normal), so I went for a long walk and rang my fiancée and cried. Don’t get me wrong, at the time I didn’t know what was happening to me but afterwards, I felt a big sense of relief that a lot of burden and stress had just left my body and I felt more Free than ever!
I went back to the class and told Ray and the students what had just happened, I was told this is absolutely normal and can happen with your first deep tissue massage and especially if you are a sensitive person, which I am. This was proof of one of the very powerful benefits that massage can provide. My life has not been the same since. I have found I released a lot of emotional baggage which I may have been carrying around for years, not even realising, and I have a new sense of calmness about me and find that the ‘little things’ don’t seem to bother me like they used to.
This is the most amazing natural experience I have ever had and want to thank Ray Cooper, Brandon Raynor and the rest of the team involved for producing and delivering an amazing course.I highly recommend doing this course, it will change your life! I can’t wait to get established in my own business so I too, can show others the powerful benefits massage has to offer. I can’t wait for Level 2.
Kind regards, Kelly Michelle Smith, Queensland, Australia.” completed Raynor massage training Brisbane
When I did the massage course in Brisbane last year, I’d had 6 months of severe lower back pain, with a pain level of 8 – 9 out of 10. I’d had Chinese acupressure massage in Cairns and Traditional Thai massage in Bangkok, which only ‘helped’ for 4 – 6 hours. By completing your course, not only did I learn a lot, but my back pain was and is ‘cured’, and I’ve not suffered since.

“Hey there Brandon, I was one of your students last year in December in Hobart. Just want to thank you for your teaching skills that provided me with the job that I was searching for. I work on the biggest cruise ship in the world in the Caribbean, earning huge money and totally enjoying every minute of it, well almost anyway. For the short amount of time that I have been massaging, all American guests can tell me is that it is the best massage they have ever had, so thanx to you 2 for passing the buck!!!!! Where in Tasmania have you settled, when I return in early next year sometime, I want to find you so I can have a decent massage off you and maybe catch up on another course, ciao”
Adam Carswell completed Raynor massage course in Launceston Tasmania (graduated December 2001)
“After completing Brandon Raynor’s Remedial Massage Course, I started my business “Balance your Health”. My main reason for doing the course was to have another modality to compliment my pranic, crystal and reiki healing. My clients are treated totally – mind, body and spirit. My business is growing, as I love connecting with people. Meditation classes introduce my clients to a unique way of helping themselves reduce stress, increase focus and concentration and bringing harmony into their lives. Thank you Brandon for your wonderful teachings and big heart.”

I have to admit that I was very skeptical at first and did not believe that a whole certificate worth of work could be done in 5 days and that it couldn’t possibly change my life like the people whose stories I read in the flyer…but it has!!!”
Ligre Campher graduated Raynor massage course Brisbane May 2003
I learned more about how the body responds to massage with practical teaching in this short massage course than in 2 years at TAFE
Rachael Boyd. (graduated Raynor massage courses in Brisbane November 2002)
It was one of the best investments I ever made! I learned so much in that course and I only did the Certificate Course! I could just imagine how much more I’d learn if I was to do the Advanced Diploma…can’t wait.. Raynor massage is one of the best type of massage I’ve ever received!
Michelle Peret, Raynor massage courses Brisbane
I now feel a skillful massage therapist and I witnessed first hand the emotional outpouring and physical healing from a massage session but I don’t want to recommend this massage course because there will be too many well trained massage therapists practicing!
Graham Arthur, Brisbane Massage Courses graduate
“The teacher maintained a professional demeanor throughout, maintaining discipline and balance, whilst in a relaxing and enjoyable environment. He excelled in his teaching ability and his knowledge was unquestionable and all questions were answered to full satisfaction.”
