Raynor Naturopathic Massage is a versatile, deep tissue, holistic, full body massage technique. It incorporates the thinking and systems of a number of the eastern massage traditions (Ayurveda, Shiatsu, Chinese Medicine, Acupressure, Reflexology and Thai Massage) and works them into a practical model that can be adapted to the client’s specific needs.
The technique follows a system of ‘bands of tension’ that run through the body from the all important ‘anchor points’ of the hands, feet and head. These bands are influenced by the energetic systems present in ayurvedic (Chakras), Chinese Medicine (Meridians) and Thai massage (Sen), worked into a practical system that follows related muscle groups that can be identified and physically felt running through the body.
Raynor Massage's versatility and adaptability as an approach means it is effective for a great number of purposes according to the client's needs:
As a practical deep tissue approach, it is effective at addressing and preventing sports related tension and injury, encouraging healing and improving performance
It can help with chronic pain and improve other long term medical conditions such as sciatica and trapped nerves, lower back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain and Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
Stress and Anxiety
There is just as much evidence for the positive effects of massage in the treatment of emotional issues such as stress, anxiety and trauma as there is for the treatment of physical issues. The deep and holostic nature of Raynor Massage means it is ideal to bring about a state of great bodily calm and affect the emotional body in powerful ways.
Maintaining Physical and Emotional Wellbeing
Raynor Massage is most effective when done regularly to maintain wellness and prevent tension from building up in the first place. To maintain a healthy body and mind, a massage is recommended at least once a month.
