Enroll in our Advanced Program

Advanced Diploma Course (For those who want to heal others)

It's purpose is for growing the community of upper-echelon Raynor Massage Professionals, and is the first step in following the path of becoming a Raynor Massage Instructor; of which we only hire internally from.

The main focus of this course is to find the smaller 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. You will also learn how to be more effective in assessing where the most predominate problem areas are located, so you can be more efficient and have better flow in removing even deeper layers of tension. The use of tools such as acupressure wands and fine chopsticks will also be introduced, which are more accurate at breaking down the more subtle tension in the micro bands of the fingers and toes.

This course is taught in Canada by Terry Masson, 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 assessment and treatment skills to make your treatments even more effective and transformative.

As well as increasing your Raynor Massage skills even further, you will also be trained on the qualities of being a good teacher and leader. We are always on the lookout for expanding Raynor Massage Internationally, and this private course is for selecting prospective members for Raynor Massage Teacher Apprenticeships.

What is Raynor Massage

Raynor Massage is a unique massage style, taught in our short and intensive massage class. During our classes we teach you to find residual tension held in the body and then how to release it. Raynor Massage does not just treat the area where pain, restriction or tightness is felt. Instead we take a more Eastern approach, looking at the person as an interconnected whole. Pain or restriction felt in one area can actually be held somewhere else, or be the result of emotional stress. This tension may go back many years, and people can become accustomed to unnecessarily living with restriction or pain. In our classes, we do not teach set massage routines. Instead, we teach our students to personalize each treatment to suit the needs of the client. You will learn how to massage areas like the back. legs, abdomen, feet, hands, head and sacrum. We also focus on the energy points and pathways (similar to meridians) of the body. Our instruction teaches you how to develop your sense of touch, to trust your intuition and to work with the client’s breathing to unlock deep seated tension and blocked energy, leaving the client feeling de-stressed, loose, more invigorated and rejuvenated. Raynor Massage aims to get to the heart of health problems by working with both the energetic systems and the physical body. This allows practitioners to achieve a deep level of healing for their clients,  giving them the gift of true relaxation

Massage Regulations in Canada

In Ontario, British Columbia and Newfoundland & Labrador the use of the term “massage therapy” and “massage therapist” is regulated. In order to use terms such as ‘Massage Therapist’ and ‘Massage Therapy’ you need to be a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). Because this entails up to 3,000 hours of formal academic training, we use other terms to describe our graduates, such as Raynor massage professional.In the provinces mentioned above, only RMTs can give receipts to their clients to claim the cost of treatments from their insurance companies. However, insurance companies are cutting back on the amount they will pay out for massage treatments by RMTs. In our experience, clients of Raynor massage are willing to cover the costs for a treatment themselves because of the effectiveness of Raynor massage to their health and personal well-being. If applicable, during class we will discuss massage regulations and answer any questions you may have.Another important note is that the governments of these provinces recognize that all modalities of bodywork, even those which have a much more holistic approach and work with the energetic systems, have a place within the wider health care provision. You cannot call yourself a RMT after taking our training but you can work legally, get insurance, and provide great Raynor Bodywork treatments to your clients as a Raynor massage professional (RMP).

Can I use my Insurance to Claim?

Our graduates are eligible for liability insurance after graduating. They can get about 2 million liability coverage for around $300/year.

I am employed with extended health benefits can I claim?

In most cases these insurance companies only cover RMT massage which we are not. However about 5 to 10 % of insurance policies do cover alternative forms of massage like Raynor massage
