You wish to learn a modality that can change people's life and have the flexibility to work your own hours around your busy family life?
If you are looking for an exciting, incredible, life changing career opportunity AND you are genuinely interested in helping people to feel happier, lighter in their lives, then Raynor massage may be the right course to learn.
You see, 7 years ago, my life completely changed. I was working a 9-5 job I enjoyed, but I wasn't fulfilled. I felt something was missing, I wanted to be more creative and make a difference in people's life, but I wasn't sure how. Fast forward, after a health issue diagnose, it was time for me to really think about what I wanted to do in life.
One day, while I was consulting my naturopath Sharon who simply told me: "Maybe it is time to change your career pathway?", the word MASSAGE popped up in my mind. I was worried as I thought that any course in NZ were a 3 years study. I didn't want to spend the next 3 years, full time, 3 hours away from home. I just couldn't afford this big financial burden and also, I wasn't interested to add more cognitive knowledge in my brain. l just wanted to work more holistically and trust my intuition to feel through my hands. I always felt that the body was holding physical and emotional tensions and no massage schools teach the importance of the emotional part (it's always focused on the physical body).
The same night I saw my naturopath, I googled 'massage NZ', and I found Raynor massage. I emailed Brandon Raynor, the creator of Raynor massage and this day transformed my life forever. Within the month of the first contact, I went to Perth to learn the 10 days certificate and diploma. When I came back, I opened my massage practice straight away. I didn't let my mind think too much, or else, I would probably still be procrastinating! It's only with practice that 'our gift' (or passion) develops. Because I embraced the unknown and I decided to trust my inner little voice, I felt guided to keep learning about emotion releases, bodywork and the role of the body and mind in our health. I keep learning everyday, and the more I learn, the more I realize there is so much to discover about the body-mind connection. Emotions and belief systems are for me the center of my work.
I told you my personal story because telling stories can inspire people to step into their own gifts. My journey brought me here today as a practitioner but also as a Raynor massage teacher for certificate and Diploma courses.
I saw my life transformed for the better after a couple of Raynor massages. One of my passions is now to share the core principle of Raynor massage with people genuinely interested in helping others to feel freer physically AND emotionally.
I would qualify Raynor massage more as a bodywork and breathwork rather than a conventional massage. Why? Because the power of this technique, when it is used to its highest potential, has literally the ability to release deep seated physical and emotional tension/blockages. I've experienced it, but I also saw it in a lot of my clients. When we are ready to let go, we really can heal our deepest pain (including trauma).
Often people describe a sensation of calm, serenity, peacefulness after a big emotional release. They also sometimes feel like a total new person as if the protective mask they have put on all their life, drops and reveals their own shiny light.
