Raynor deep tissue massage is different from other massage techniques. Not only does it focus on the muscular system, as you would expect, but it also benefits the skeletal system and subtle energy systems of the body. It was developed by Brandon Raynor, a Canadian now living in Australia and he has incorporated different techniques from a variety of Eastern and Western modalities to really deliver a fantastic experience to his clients.
The massage itself is not performed as a routine as every one of us is different in our needs, but as a practitioner, we look to find and remove tension wherever it presents itself in the body.
Because we are working at a deep level in the body tissues, the massage can feel slightly uncomfortable at times, but as your practitioner, I work with you to understand your level of comfort during the session – after all this is your time!
At times an emotional release can also occur as tension can be caused by repressed emotion. This is not unusual and will pass. Stored toxins can also be released leaving you feeling drained or shaky. As the body works to eliminate them from your system, you will start to feel great!
Despite sounding like things we would like to avoid, all of these outcomes are really positive effects of the massage and will mean you are likely to feel a real sense of deep relaxation (“re” meaning to bring back and “lax” meaning to loosen).
As an Advance Raynor Massage practitioner and a tutor at Dave Taylor Massage Training Lori is skilled at helping you manage any discomfort and release of emotion both during and after treatment.
A Raynor deep tissue massage aims to remove the deepest layers of tension and stress which can be caused by deep physical or emotional imbalances from the past. It works with the muscles, bones and blood supply and uses acupressure points to unblock the flow of chi in the body to help alleviate pain and return the body to a state of centredness.
