Kelowna Massage Clinic and Massage Training
Canada's leading Massage School To Fast-Track Your New Career
At Raynor Massage in Kelowna, we believe that to be effective in treatment we must always make our massage approach and technique unique to each individual. “Is this movement helping to remove the tension of the person I’m working on?” That is the question and goal that each Raynor Massage Specialist must always consider. It’s also the principle upon which Australian trained Naturopath Brandon Raynor developed this system of bodywork that encompasses both the muscle and skeletal systems of the body.

We treat each person as a holistic organism, considering the inner complexity and needs of the entire body. Each person is unique, so our assessment and treatment should be also.

Our main goal is to seek out residual body tightness and blockages and remove them. We accomplish this in part through the integration of various Eastern forms of massage such as Shiatsu, Ayurvedic massage, Eastern chiropractic work, Lomi Lomi and yoga breath work. We also apply Eastern medical theories that focus on freeing disruptions of the body’s life force, emotion and subtle energies. This life force is often referred to as Chi, Qi or Prana. Again, our purpose is to utilize any number of techniques and practices, catering to the specific needs of each individual.

Raynor’s vision and dedication to whole-body assessment and complete-tension removal has helped us become the most powerful and effective alternative to massage therapy today. We offer deep tissue massage at our West Kelowna clinic as well as high quality massage training with classes throughout Canada. Please check out our upcoming classes for the next massage training class in your area!

Karina is a qualified Advanced Level Raynor Massage Practitioner and Instructor who trained extensively under Terry Masson and completed advanced massage training with Brandon Raynor. She enjoys teaching and guiding students toward better vitality, mobility and freedom to live healthier lives through comprehensive, hands-on massage courses throughout Canada.

Karina’s empathetic disposition and interest in natural healing began at an early age, which she credits to her mother and German upbringing. After 15 years of owning and operating a restaurant with her husband, she was looking for a more fulfilling lifestyle and to inspire the people she loves the most-- her three children. She has since chosen the path of a Natural Healer and believes in a holistic approach to health through massage and naturopathy. Being a Raynor Massage Instructor has given her the opportunity to help people first hand and to share that knowledge with others exponentially.

She also draws upon her diverse background, to aid her as a massage teacher and practitioner. As an athlete and soccer coach for many years, she has a strong knowledge of the human body and what it takes to keep it functioning at optimal levels. Karina has also taken courses in Flower Essences, Aromatherapy, Homeopathy and Herbology to help her family, herself and others to heal. She does this with the help of natural products and medicines she makes out of her backyard and from foraging for wild herbs in the forests of the Cariboo. Karina also has her Reiki Level 2 for any energy work needed that may arise during a Raynor Massage session.

Her passion and knowledge for massage is evident in her motivational teaching style and benefits of her massage. Karina looks forward to having you in one of her upcoming massage courses in Canada.

Ayssia Guenette
Raynor Massage Specialist

Ayssia Guenette was originally born in Victoria, but has lived all over Canada. Her travels and many interactions with others have helped create useful skills for reading people and their state of health. With her compassionate nature she has become an intuitive healer. After moving to Kelowna in the Winter of 2016 her life changed dramatically. She went from being a Red Seal Journeyman Welder in the Alberta oilfield, to becoming a full time wellness advocate. It was her own path of healing that has lead her to where she is now.

She currently has her Usui Shiki Ryoho level 2 Reiki and soon to be Master level. She is also being called to learn shamanic healing. She has always been drawn to crystals and naturopathic healing. She is very creative and loves to make art in all forms from Reiki infused Gemstone jewelry, to creating costumes for festivals or painting. She is always creating or building something fun in her spare time. She also loves to test her strength at the gym, and tries to become the best version of herself as possible.

Some day she hopes to heal people and the planet using all the modalities she has learnt and continues to learn, to better people, society, and Mother Earth. She believes that there are multiple levels that we need to heal ourselves on to truly move forward especially if there has been a lot of trauma. Raynor Massage has been a life changing experience for her, as it has healed her in ways she had no idea was possible from a massage. She feels this style of massage goes hand in hand with the energy work she does, and can have a deeply profound effect on people and their healing journey’s.

“People come in for a massage, and leave with a huge weight lifted off their shoulders. Just being able to relieve and heal them from years of tension build up from stress, or trauma in such a short time, is simply the most rewarding thing I have ever been able to do.” Ayssia has been an Assistant to the courses we hold and truly loves to see each student and their natural abilities grow, and the changes they go through day to day in the course. “Seeing the students change from day 1 to day 10 is so rewarding, you can see the lightness in their faces again like a glow is surrounding them, the realization that we don’t have to live with all that weight anymore is truly remarkable”
Raynor Massage - The Holistic Approach
What Is Raynor Massage?
The Raynor method of massage is one of the world’s most cutting edge and advanced systems of massage and bodywork. It draws knowledge from Shiatsu, Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, Thai massage, Hawaiian medicine, Reflexology and Deep Tissue Massage. It also encompasses many breath-work techniques from yoga to combine into a unique and comprehensive massage system known as Raynor Massage.

Raynor Massage has an emphasis on the interconnectedness of the body using “bands of tension” that exist throughout the human body. Raynor Massage teaches the students to loosen these bands of tension which then helps the person to achieve a much greater degree of health. These bands of tension become tight due to physical and emotional stresses and consequently after these bands are released a person feels much better. These bands are similar but different to the meridians of Chinese medicine.

Along with stressing the importance of the bands, Raynor Massage has a strong emphasis on detailed massaging of the feet and hands; going into tiny parts of the bands that start and end on the toes and fingers. In addition, Raynor Massage has a strong focus on the abdominal area which is where a lot of emotional stress is held that causes long term problems for people in different ways.

We look at the body, mind and spirit as a whole and see the interconnectedness of a person’s physical well being, emotional health and alignment with their spiritual purpose in life. Raynor Massage is one of the world’s most advanced systems of massage and bodywork which is taught in a simple and easy to understand way.

Raynor Massage Courses
Raynor Massage is a very unique style of massage that is probably quite different from any other type of massage you may have experienced before. It is the best massage technique available; designed to get rid of the deepest layers of tension including mind chatter, physical tension, negative emotions and even issues with trauma.

You can easily learn Raynor Massage by signing up for our 5-day Certificate or 10-day Diploma courses that we run consecutively. Once you receive your Diploma and are familiar with Raynor Massage you can continue to study with our school’s Founder Brandon Raynor to receive your Advanced Diploma in Raynor Massage. You can choose one, two or all three courses, depending on your needs. Once complete you can practice massage, as many of our graduates do, on cruise ships, in gyms and spas, in wellness centres or start your own massage business.

The Raynor style of massage incorporates several ancient healing modalities including elements of Shiatsu, Thai massage, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage, Ayurvedic massage, deep tissue and sports massage, as well as conventional Swedish massage.

Our courses are short in nature compared to 2 and 3 year colleges that offer Registered Massage Therapists (RMT) designations; however, you will find the quality of our courses to be very high. During your training with Raynor Massage you will be taught to understand the root causes of tension and be able to massage people at a level equal to or greater than graduates of the RMT colleges. We focus our training on feeling tension in the body and giving the best massages possible rather than dedicating most of your class time to memorizing Latin names of muscles.

Graduates of our massage classes are able to obtain fully comprehensive malpractice and professional indemnity insurance after completing the course.
