About Raynor’s Massage

There are so many different massage therapy modalities out there; Thai Massage, Indian Head Massage, Chinese Massage, Shiatsu... and the list goes on and on. While they are all essentially good massage therapies, Raynor Massage is different.

Raynor Massage covers not just the muscles of the body but also the skeletal system and the subtle body energy systems of the body. It has evolved from a combination of different styles from around the world that include Therapeutic Massage, Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Ayurvedic, Swedish, Hawaiian, Remedial, and Hand and Foot Reflexology.

The simple philosophy of Raynor Massage is to find every bit of tension in the body and get rid of it by applying a holistic treatment starting on the area where symptoms or tension are showing and find the source of the tension. We will also emphasise on certain important parts of the body that are often neglected by traditional massage therapists, such as the abdomen, the sacrum, the hips and the feet, hands and head. These areas tend to hold a lot of stagnation and blockage of the life force and freeing them up will generally have a great benefit not just to the areas concerned but to the whole being.

An important concept of Raynor Massage is that the source of some of the residual tension in the body can be emotional or stress related reasons. Residual tension means tension that is in the person’s body when the body is resting, for example on a massage table. In other words if a person has muscle tightness in an area when they aren’t using that area this is what we call residual tension and our goal is to get rid of this tension. Unless the corresponding emotion is also released, some tension will remain in the body. Raynor Massage will be able to release this tension by utilising its massage techniques, rhythms and encouraging clients to practice the breathing technique during treatments and to allow any emotions out that need to come out and to not hold them back.

Raynor massage is generally recognised as one of the most powerful and effective forms of massage therapy today. It goes well beyond the realm of what most people consider to be the confines of a massage treatment. We often put bones back into place and can help a lot of different emotional and psychological conditions.

In fact, for some people good massage may be very uncomfortable if they aren’t used to it, but then as their healing crisis finishes their body should feel a lot better, have more mobility and a general feeling of being more relaxed should ensue.

The word “relax” actually means to bring back to a state of looseness. “Re” means to bring back to and “lax” means loose. So Raynor massage is actually a form of deep relaxation massage.
