Raynor Naturopathic Massage and Bodywork is a holistic system of Bodywork developed by Naturopath Brandon Raynor. It’s origins are in Ayurvedic Massage, Chinese Medicine, Reflexology, Shiatsu and Yoga breath work. There is a special emphasis on the Eastern medical theory that the physical body is a gross manifestation of a subtle body composed of a life force (chi or prana), emotions and other subtle energies, and that each are related and have an effect on each other. Physical or emotional stressors can lead to a blockage or disruption in the flow of chi or prana that can then  cause muscles to tighten and bones to shift out of place or create tension in the body.

Most tension exists along bands in the body that are composed of muscles, tendons, ligaments and other body tissues. Underlying these physical manifestations of the bands are subtle energy systems similar to Meridians in Chinese Medicine, Sen lines in Thai Massage, or nadis in Ayurvedic Massage. Knowledge and techniques gleaned from these ancient modalities were then integrated and evolved to form the Raynor Band Theory along with its unique set of techniques, adjustments, stretches and rhythm.

While Raynor Naturopathic Massage Bands may overlap with some of these, the distinguishing feature of Raynor Bands is that the bands can be physically traced and often seen within the body. Raynor massage is one of the most advanced massage therapy styles in the world.

The primary goal of Raynor Naturopathic Massage is to relieve a person of residual tension, or muscle tightness in an area of the body when the body is at rest, and return the body to its’ natural state of relaxation. The word “relax” literally means to bring back to a state of looseness. “Re” means to bring back to and “lax” means loose, whereby Raynor massage is actually a form of deep relaxation massage. In addition, we believe that massage should not be performed in a routine manner, as each client has their own specific treatment needs.

This is why the development of one’s sense of touch and intuition is equally important in Raynor Naturopathic Massage in order to properly diagnose and treat a client. It also concentrates on parts of the body that are often neglected by traditional massage therapists, such as the abdomen, sacrum, hips, 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.
