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

A truly transformational experience. Receiving a Raynor Naturopathic Massage has unseated deep unwanted tension and emotion I have been carrying around for years. Brandon and Cori not only facilitated this extraction they also mentored and coached us on the practical and soft skills to pass this gift on to others. I have all the skills and confidence to now treat others who are looking to remove unwanted physical, mental and emotional stresses. This is the massage that everyone wants but is so hard to find. Becoming an advanced Raynor practitioner sets you above all other therapist in your field - the amazing results and full bookings are testament to that.

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

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 :)

Both Brandon and Cori are very knowledgeable tutors and have a great teaching technique for those of us who haven't had any experience, aswell as those of us who did. The course is very informative and Brandon's technique is second to none. Thanks guys :)

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.
