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

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 :)

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've just finished the diploma massage course. I've previously done another massage course and I can say Brandon's course surpasses the other course I did. Completely loved this course, defiantly recommend if you want to become a health practitioner and assist people along their healing journey ✌🏽️👌🙌🏾🙏

Thank you so much Brandon for the opportunity to learn from you and expand my knowledge base.

I have just finished my diploma course with Brandon raynor. The level of skill and precision in which I can now locate and delete tension is amazing. I would of never of thought I would of learned so much in a 2 week period. Brandon is very professional and I would not hesitate in recommending this course to anyone willing to learn how to truly help people. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 weeks in the course and will be pursuing the massage techniques in my medispa in Narellan. Thank you Legend.

Brandon Raynor Massage gave me the holistic approach to Healing Massage that I was looking for. The fact that I didn't have to study for 3 years while raising a small family was a huge bonus.

I didn't know what to expect despite reading the website thoroughly. Nothing will prepare you for your first emotional release - Raynor Massage is spiritual, healing and gets right to the core of the physical & emotional issue.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Raynor Massage and it's just a shame there aren't more of us around. Every client I've ever massaged has loved it, and have been in awe of what they feel during the massage (getting into the toes & fingers) and I love seeing their faces after I've finished - complete and utter relaxation.

Thank you Brandon and Maureen - this was the best decision Ive ever made! Adie Foster xxx

I am a big fan of Brandon Raynor's School of Natural Therapies, I continue to be reaping benefits from his wonderful deep tissue massage. This has revolutionised my health and well-being as I have endured major surgery on 3 occasions; most of which was in my younger years... Brandon's deep tissue massage lifts out deeply rooted anxieties and stress hidden deep within various tissues, and the relief is wonderful and life enhancing. Also I have learned so much about flower essences from Brandon which has deepened my appreciation and knowldge of the sheer power of flower essences. He has given me flower essences readings too and these have had noteworthy effects on my life in such positive ways. I have purchased a number of excellent books on flower essences on Brandon's recommendations and I look froward in the near future to taking his Wholefood Nutrition course.

I just completed the diploma course in Perth (April 2017) and I just loved everything about it!

I came specially from NZ, so I was already motivated. It was exactly what I wanted. It is more than a simple massage that we all have probably experienced. I had personally personal emotional releases and the last one has been very beneficial. I have been able to finally understand all my anger, sadness that I worked for a lot of years at the emotional level but I never realised that the body keeps the memories as well. The same evening I have been able to forgive myself, and I changed the traumatic images into beautiful images. It is an enormous transformation and it will help me in my future.

Raynor massage are perfect if you are looking for the roots of your tensions, problems. It is powerful, especially if you have already started to work on yourself and if you mix it with other type of healing such as changing diet, meditation, healing, acupuncture etc...

If you are looking for a work conversion, it is a great start. I am just at the beginning of this conversion journey but I am convinced that it was the right move to do this course. Thank you to both Brandon and his lovely wife Cori.

I absolutely love this style of massage as it truly releases tension. Something that no one else has managed to do for me.

I love the other aspects of this style as well, like being able to give an emotional release to someone, unblocking chi and learning about reflexology and aromatherapy. Best course and massage ever!
