Raynor Massage Explained

Raynor Massage is a powerful system of bodywork developed by Brandon Raynor and covers not just the muscles of the body but also the skeletal system and the subtle energy systems of the body.

A Deep Tissue Massage can be one of the most beneficial forms of massage therapy when done by the hands of a skilled massage practitioner.We have been teaching our deep tissue massage courses throughout the UK and Ireland such as London, Preston and Dublin for more than 10 years now and bring a wealth of experience from all over the world to our massage courses.  Brandon Raynor’s Deep Tissue Massage Courses are one of the world’s most advanced forms of deep tissue massage training incorporating elements from shiatsu, lomi lomi, Thai massage, reflexology, Ayurvedic massage, Chinese massage and aromatherapy, as well as a range of our own techniques.


Raynor Massage, as our style is known around the world, is an advanced system of massage developed by Naturopath Brandon Raynor and is based on his knowledge and experience in massage therapy and natural healing methods such as Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine and Naturopathy. He has developed his own holistic style of deep tissue massage and bodywork based upon his knowledge of these ancient systems of medicine and more than 20 years of experience in the field. As a result, Raynor Massage works on a deep physical level as well as a deep emotional level. Raynor Massage is very powerful and effective way to treat many different problems ranging from backaches, neck problems, sports injuries and other physical problems to eating and reproductive disorders to deep seated emotional imbalances and stress.

Raynor Massage works in a holistic manner– body, mind and spirit– with a whole structural realignment from the core.  We will teach you how to massage to the deepest layers of tension and stress, which are often caused by deep physical or emotional imbalances from the past, and how to remove the tension.  Raynor Massage approaches the body as an interconnected whole, recognizing that tension being held in the feet often cause tension in the legs, knees and hips, which will then cause lower back pain, spinal tension, abdominal or neck problems. So we will teach you how to find the source of the tension and trace it along “bands” or lines of tension in the body and remove the blockage. Because most residual tension is held in the feet, hands and abdomen, our courses focus on deep tissue massage and reflexology of the feet and hands, and a deep abdominal massage in our more advanced courses.

Raynor massage also works in conjunction with the muscles, bones and blood supply as well as the chi, or life force within the body.  By using acupressure points designed to unblock the flow of chi in the body and breathing techniques from yoga, Raynor Massage is designed to eliminate any physical, emotional and even spiritual imbalances and help the body to return to a state of relaxation, vitality and centredness.
