Advanced Diploma Course

The Raynor Advanced Practitioner’s Diploma course is for graduates of our Diploma course, regardless of any prior experience and qualifications in other massage modalities. This course is taught only by Brandon Raynor, often with other teachers assisting, and is aimed at developing your strategies to give effective treatments to enable you and your clients to get the most from the massage and get great results, quicker.

It will assist you to increase your diagnostic and treatments skills to make your treatments even more effective and transformative. The main focus of this course is to find the bands of tension within the body which hold tension and restrict the flow of chi so that chi flow is stimulated in the body which allows for the release of pent up emotions.

More About the Course

Although these techniques are taught in the earlier courses, Brandon will show people how to diagnose and plan treatments quicker, more effectively and more smoothly. The course is taught as a clinic with the students as the patients so each student will receive a significant amount of massage. As a student you will also learn specific advanced techniques which we only show at this level. The overall emphasis of the training will be on the big picture of making a powerful integrated massage treatment using Raynor Massage techniques with the overall purpose of totally freeing the body of tension and blocked areas of congested energy.

Brandon Raynor Advanced Massage

The advanced course was an amazing experience! It has brought together the Raynor massage for me and taken it to another level. I have had the confidence to go full time as a massage therapist .I feel great in myself after receiving a massage and the benefits are being passed on to my clients!

The pace of the course will be intense, quickly focusing on each of the students in the class and individualizing the massage treatment to suit the client. Students in this class will be receiving a lot of first class massage treatments from the other students, and from Brandon Raynor and his teachers with the goal of getting rid of all the tension in the your body so that you can understand more fully what it feels like to be tension free.

If you book this course at the same time as you book your Certificate and Diploma courses, even if you don’t take it for a while to gain experience before you do this Advanced Practitioner’s class, we offer a ‘book together’ discount with all three courses. Please contact us for more information.

Most of this course will be focused on treating each of the students as if they were a client and what would be the best strategy to treat that person. It is recommended that people who attend this course are definitely comfortable at receiving a deep massage as Brandon often works quite deep with people! Brandon does not teach for any other massage school and this is an excellent way of taking your massage skills further and deepening your experience, understanding and abilities.

Brandon Raynor Demonstrating Massage

The Advanced Diploma course with Brandon changed the way I approach giving a massage treatment and took my bodywork to a new level. I now have a much deeper understanding of not just how to give a massage, but how to give a massage catered specifically to an individual. Every person has different bodies and emotional states and thus has different needs and thus requires a different strategy when being treated. This is the most valuable lesson I learnt during this course and I’m so grateful I did because I am now achieving incredible results in my bodywork.

Our Advanced Diploma Will Transform Your Life

Hello Brandon and Cory, I hope you had a safe trip back to Gympie. Thanks for coming to Perth to present your Certificate and Diploma courses in the Raynor Method of Massage. I very much enjoyed the course and got a lot out of it. Although I have come from a back ground in Swedish style massage concentrating on Injury prevention and rehabilitation, I have not been massaging full time for years and concentrating on a career in the Mining Industry instead. After my role was made redundant I decided to do the Dip Course as a way to learn new skills, techniques, inspire me and re-motivate me in the what has always been my passion and interest by helping people with massage. Your course ticked all the boxes for me. I believe your Bands of Tension theory is the key to unlocking the muscle issues so many people have. I will be getting back into the business of Massage. To this end I have registered my old business name (couldn't believe it was still available) TOTAL MUSCLE MANAGEMENT and will be based in Belmont WA. You have also inspired me into learning more about Aromatherapy and Ayadadic medicine so you will see me again in your correspondence course in the future. Thank you so much for all you have given. Kind regards Maryse.

Just finished Brandon's 2 week certificate and Diploma in massage last week!

I personally found this to be simply amazing and life changing. Everyday I was simply blown away with what we learnt and especially how I felt.

I'm a 38 yr old male with a beautiful wife and 2 young girls and found the 2 week course suited me perfect!! The price was well worth the transformation I have had with the added bonus of becoming a massage therapist. If your thinking of doing this course, its worth it on every level. Brandon is an amazing individual and some one I have come to trust and respect 100%. The skills I learnt can be taught to anyone willing to learn.

I have no hesitation to recommend this amazing course to anyone! If your thinking of doing this course? Its a no lose situation!!

Thank you so much!!

Raynor Massage is so very effective at getting to and eliminating the deepest layers of tension including those held by negative emotions and traumatic experiences. I am not exaggerating when I say that Raynor Massage helped me overcome depression, anxiety issues and other health ailments. It was such a great experience when I took the Diploma course in 2007 and subsequent Advanced classes with Brandon that now Raynor Massage is embedded in my daily life. Extremely happy to be a teacher for this amazing organization and full to the brim with deep gratitude towards my mentor Brandon and the rest of his team. Thank You Brandon Raynor, Thank You!

I have just graduated from the Diploma course held in Auckland, NZ June/July of this year. I am a Natural Therapist in Reflexology, Foot Massage and Foot Joint Mobilisation and in my first couple of days was apprehensive about whether I could do this form of massage but as the days progressed and with Brandons amazing teaching style it did become second nature. It is a course I would highly recommend to a trained professional or a layman. Not only for learning a type of massage that I believe is one of the best that will be of benefit to so many people but also for how the course helps you learn a lot about yourself. The teaching style is so relaxed that it is easy to retain what you have learned and from day one it is all about being hands on. Brandon and Cori make an awesome team and nothing is of trouble to them. They can adapt and cater for all course members learning styles. And a great style of massage as it is not a set routine it can be adapted to meet individual clients needs. The best course I have been on since I started on my "therapist" journey. I know continued support and mentoring will come from Brandon and the school. A trusted and valued tutor and man. I just hope I can do my qualification justice. Thank you Brandon and Cori

I just finished the course and Raynor massage is certainly a very powerful tool to help people heal physical and mentally.

Brandon and Cori just compliment each other so well in teaching the course, I cant wait to use skills I learned and implement them on others as well as myself.

Thanks again for your time Brandon and Cori!

I studied with Brandon and Cori in the gorgeous setting of Hamner Springs in Canterbury NZ…the retreat it self was a draw card for me. I'm not sure what drew me to this course and I admitted that at our first 'classroom' meeting, I just knew I was meant to be there, if that makes sense??. It has taken me along time to write this because I wasn't sure how to put into words how much Brandon and his way of healing has changed my way of thinking and my life. After seeing the benefits of others in the course (whether it be physical or emotional) and the life changing effects this course had on me I truly believe Raynor Massage technique has to be experienced to understand how it works. I have gone on to studying Ayurveda in India which only compliments what I learnt with Brandon and Cori. I truly believe anyone who is interested in true healing and release then Brandons course is definitely one you should look at. Love and light x
