Raynor Massage is a system of bodywork developed by Australian trained Naturopath Brandon Raynor. It covers not just the muscles of the body but also the skeletal system and the subtle body energy systems of the body. Raynor massage is not performed as a routine massage, although we do have particular techniques, stretches and adjustments that we have developed. Instead, the goal of Raynor massage is to find any residual tightness or blockage in the body and get rid of it. Whatever technique we plan to use, we must always evaluate it against this goal. “Is this move that I am doing helping to get rid of the person tension or not?” is a question that should always be asked. 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 can residual tension and our goal is to get rid of this tension.. Another important concept of Raynor massage is that the source of some of the residual tension in the body can be from emotional or stress related reasons. We believe in the well accepted Eastern medical theories that the physical body is a gross manifestation of a subtle body composed of life force and emotions and other subtle energies. We refer to this life force as chi or prana. A blockage or disruption in the flow of chi or prana will cause an area of the physical body to become tight, blocked or forced out of position in the case of the bones. We also believe that the body is one holistic organism and we don’t believe that dealing with one part in isolation is as effective as dealing with the whole person. So, in this way we recognize that one part of the body may be tight but that area is being held tight by another area which could then also be held tight by another area again. We also recognize that the subtle body of emotions and the gross physical body are related and so we see that some tension may not be gotten rid of in the body unless the corresponding emotion is also released. In this way we work holistically not just with our massage techniques but also with our rhythms and encouragement to our clients to breathe deeply into their bellies during the treatment and to allow any emotions out that need to come out and to not hold them back.
