Brandon Raynor Massage
Brandon Raynor, Australian trained Naturopath, has developed this system of bodywork, which covers not just the muscles of the body but also the skeletal system and the subtle energy systems of the body. The aim is to remove residual tension from the body.
The term ‘residual tension’ refers to that tension that is held in a person’s body even when the body is resting, for example on a massage table. Residual tension shows in muscle tightness in an area while the muscles are not being used.

Another important concept of Raynor massage is that the believe in the well accepted Eastern medical theories that the physical body is a gross manifestation of a subtle body composed of life force, emotions and other subtle energies. We refer to this life force as Qi or prana. A blockage or disruption in the flow of this life force or energy will cause an area of the physical body to become tight, blocked or forced out of position in the case of the bones.
Brandon Raynor thinks of the body as a holistic organism. He recognizes the fact that one part of the body may be tight but that area is being held tight by other areas in the body. Furthermore, the subtle body of emotions and the gross physical body are related which explains that some body tension may not be released unless the corresponding emotion is also released. The Brandon Raynor style massage applies the combination of holistic techniques, rhythm and deep breathing so that not only deep seated tensions but deep seated emotions are allowed to be released from body and mind.
Brandon Raynor Massage courses are available worldwide. The compacted ‘hands-on’ massage training enables the student to understand the basic principles of how to release tension and stress and to administer this holistic style of massage therapy, leaving clients refreshed, relaxed and relieved of the constrictive effects of accumulated stress.
