Raynor Therapeutic Massage
Raynor Therapeutic Massage Raynor Therapeutic Massage is a unique style of holistic deep tissue massage and bodywork that can have a profound effect, not just on the muscular system, but on all systems of the body, including the skeletal, digestive, circulatory, respiratory, lymphatic, endocrine, reproductive and nervous systems.
Muscle tension and tightness in the body reduces the flow of blood, oxygen and lymph to our muscles and organs, as well as restricting the flow of the subtle energy, Chi or Prana. This can limit the body's ability to effectively eliminate toxicity and retain good health and vitality.
Raynor bodywork has been known to help people with the following conditions: general aches and pains, sports injuries, fatigue, headaches and migraines, depression and anxiety, insomnia and other sleeping disorders, digestive issues, menstrual issues, and ADHD.
During a Raynor massage session, we are not only looking at one part of the body in isolation, but the body as a whole. Tension in one area of the body may be held by tightness in another part of the body, which may be held by tightness in another area, and so on. Working along these bands of tension in the body, referred to as the Meridian lines in Chinese Medicine, we can often trace the tension back to it's roots. We work a lot on the hands, feet, head and abdominal areas, which are considered the roots and exit points of the body in Chinese Medicine. Releasing tension from these areas can often release tension from the rest of the body.
The source of tension in the body can sometimes be from emotions, stresses or traumas and may have been stored in the body for a very long time, even since childhood. In order to release the tension, we sometimes need to release the emotion associated with the tension as well. This can manifest as an emotional release during or after a Raynor massage, which could be sadness, anger, laughter, tears or any other emotion you may have been holding onto. It is important to let the emotion leave the body, and then the tension will follow.
Deep yogic belly breathing is an important part of a Raynor massage. Through this deep breathing, you will be able to more easily release the tension and emotions and allow the body to restore itself to it's natural relaxed state.
