The Raynor method of massage is one of the world’s most cutting edge and advanced systems of massage therapy. It draws knowledge from shiatsu, Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, Thai massage, Hawaiian medicine, reflexology and deep tissue massage. It also encompasses many breathwork techniques from yoga to combine into a unique and comprehensive massage system known as Raynor massage.
Raynor massage has an emphasis on the interconnectedness of the body using “bands of tension” that exist throughout the human body. Raynor massage teaches the students to loosen these bands of tension which then helps the person to achieve a much greater degree of health. These bands of tension become tight due to physical and emotional stresses and consequently after these bands are released a person feels much better. These bands are similar but different to the meridians of Chinese medicine.
Along with stressing the importance of the bands, Raynor massage has a strong emphasis on detailed massage of the feet and hands; going into tiny parts of the bands that start and end on the toes and fingers. In addition, Raynor massage has a strong focus on the abdominal area which is where a lot of emotional stress is held that causes long term problems for people in different ways.
We look at the body, mind and spirit as a whole and see the interconnectedness of a person’s physical well being, emotional health and alignment with their spiritual purpose in life. Raynor massage is one of the world’s most advanced systems of massage therapy which is taught in a simple and easy to understand way.
