Raynor Technique Massage (Deep Tissue)

Raynor Technique Massage (Deep Tissue)

As its name suggests, Raynor Massage was developed by an Australian trained Naturopath, Brandon Raynor.  Whilst it is designed to target both the muscles of the body and the skeletal system, it also focuses on the subtle body energy systems, or emotions, of the body. Raynor Massage draws upon a combination of different styles from around the world, including Therapeutic massage, Deep tissue, Acupressure, Ayurvedic, Swedish, Hawaiian, Remedial, Shiatsu, Thai, hand and foot reflexology – not to mention yoga breath work as well! 

At its most basic level, Raynor Massage seeks two things: to release all negative emotions, and to eradicate all tensions or blockages within the body by using the fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows and forearms of the massage therapist. As this technique recognizes that emotions and physicality are inter-related, it is important that clients breathe deeply during the treatment to release any negative emotions that may also be causing the pain of tension held within the body. Again, this type of massage will also promote relaxation, and will help to balance both spirit and mind.

For some people, this type of massage may be considered uncomfortable. As healing begins however, the body will recover quickly enabling more mobility and a general feeling of complete relaxation. 

Deep Tissue Massage (Extreme Massage) 

Deep tissue massage rearranges the tissue layers within the muscles and connective tissues. The movements used are quite slow, as extreme pressure is applied to areas of tension. This treatment is mainly used for tense, contracted and stressed areas of the body such as the neck, lower back and shoulders, which can be corrective as well as therapeutic.

Deep tissue massage will noticeably loosen muscles, alleviate pain, and increase mobility. Those suffering from certain conditions such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, edema, muscle cramping, facia release and carpal tunnel syndrome may find Deep Tissue Massage to be particularly therapeutic. 

As with the Raynor technique, Deep Tissue Massage can be uncomfortable for those beginning this type of therapy.  There may be a day or two of soreness - akin to the after-affects of a particularly hard workout, but as with exercise of any type, the results are worth it!
