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

I never thought the diploma course will be transformative. But, I experienced transformation at the last week of the course which enables me to see myself in a different way. I have to thanks Brandon for that, he is just an awesome human being... ...I learned excellent massage techniques too, but I learned more about myself after the course... I’m Looking forward to taking the advanced course in the future!

I’ve just come back from the advanced course in London - I actually did the week in October 18 but really wanted to go back again. I’d done the retreat with Dave in April/May 18 & absolutely loved it & although I’m really pleased I went to the advanced course, I wasn’t quite ready for it either! Brandon’s style is very different to Dave’s - it’s not a case of consolidating what you’ve learnt, but it takes it to a whole new level!

Watching Brandon work deeply can be a bit shocking at first. It looks so painful...& it is! But Brandon is right about people being red, amber or green. At the start of the week I was definitely red, only going to amber the day before the last day...I wanted to go for it but held back too long. However on the Saturday I decided to get out of my comfort zone & just went for it. You have to be a green light & surrender to the deep rooted pain & tension you’ve been holding onto for years!

Yes it’s painful, but it’s momentary & it feels so good to allow yourself to let it all go. The only way to understand the power of the advanced techniques is to experience them for yourself...& then you’ll be on a mission to find someone to work on you more!

I’m so pleased I returned to the advanced course a few days ago. I arrived with a years more experience, a desire to learn & a big green light to get worked on! I received some great treatments & got to practise on amazing therapists & got awesome advice & feedback. I’ve come back with a new confidence & excited to be continuing on this journey 😊

Thank you Brandon 🙏

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 completed the course in 2009 and the later on completed the advanced course in 2013. Having experienced massage throughout the world , including some amazing work from blind masseuses in Tibet I was looking forward to a change of career if this course delivered what it promised.

It did, in great buckets, my first experience of an emotional release from a client was both humbling and I felt privileged to help with this process.

Having only had an interest in massage , the two week course enabled me to immediately start working on people I knew and those I did not. The transition to getting paid was as easy as finding clients. It is still easy if you just talk to people.

The advanced course rounded out the training and introduced new techniques including a form of what I could only call acupressure with amazing personal results. I would like to personally thank Brandon and Maureen for convincing me to attend.

As an interesting bonus my personal chronic (lie on the floor for 3 days a couple of times a year) back pain completely went and has not re occurred. The change to my personal health and wellbeing as Terry mentioned was an unexpected bonus.

My only complaint is that there are not enough practitioners to go around :)

Well worth a few weeks of your life to learn what is possible if you really listen to what the body is telling you. This is a very intuitive course and anyone with an open mind and heart should do very well.

Brandon Raynor has developed the most advanced therapeutic massage techniques I have ever felt and seen around the whole world, I was in a near fatal truck accident and was blessed to receive this amazing schooling and therapy 7 years ago. Words are too primitive to discribe the after effects, Now this year Brandon himself presented me my Advanced Diploma, What an honor

to learn from the Principal himself.

Thank you and Blessings on you and your loved ones Brandon

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.

This course was such an eye opener for me! I completed the diploma in Hanmer Springs with Brandon and Cori. The pair complemented each other perfectly in their teaching styles and I particularly loved how much hands on practise we got to do over the 2 weeks. Not only do you get taught the tools to offer Raynor massage, but also get to experience first hand the incredible effects it can have on you (that's if/when you are the demonstration student!). Thanks again Brandon and Cori :)
