I highly recommend Dave and his generous and thoughtful teaching. I attended the Devon retreat and it changed my life. I'm now setting up a new business based on what I learnt. If in doubt, just do it. You won't regret it. More...

If you're looking to learn a new lifelong skill in a safe, professional yet tranquil environment, I highly recommend Dave's 8-day training retreat in Devon. . I graduated Dave's course in Nov 2019 (attached my snapshot of the location!), I'm a yoga teacher; 'Bodywork' has always been my passion- touch is a powerful yet underrated sense. Hence, I came across Deep tissue Raynor massage. 8 days may sound long or short but the course program was well thought-out and it invloved a good amount of hands-on practices (giving and receiving!) Teacher Dave Taylor's authenticity in his personality and with his true passion for his teachings, and wanting to educate and inspire others are all the elements you're looking for in his role. I am happy to say my confidenence has grown in me immensively to start my well-being business.. Thank you very much, Dave for the impressive retreat course- it's a reset button on life! More...

This course is exactly what I was looking for. I had already trained in both VTCT level 3 massage then I also trained in an ITC level 3 massage in 2010 as part of a foundation degree in Complementary health therapies . on this foundation degree I really felt that I concentrated more on the academic side than the practical . I graduated in 2012 but my divorce kicked off then and I fell into a different job and 7 years later I found myself lacking in confidence with my massage skills. So I thought I needed a course to refresh and upgrade my skills. The deep tissue Raynor massage style that is a fusion of eastern styles that result in finding and removing tension and occaisional emotional release of trapped emotions , I thought would be perfect..... It is ! I have learnt new massage techniques which will take my skills to another level. I have grown in confidence and with the Business skills - very, very clever advice! I have no doubt in the future sucsess of my therapy business. I am fired up and enthusiastic to begin , Thank you Dave ! Also The retreat People, Ollie and Lucy are amazing , the daily yoga, delicious food and the amazing , relaxing ambience that they created in Devon is just masterful - It felt like a relaxing holiday aswell as a course ! This course will give you to skills to be a great massage therapist ! More...

When I was looking for massage courses, I was originally looking for sports massage, but once I read more on the detail of Raynor massage the more it made sense. Coming from a professional sporting background, I've been around a lot of massage therapists, and never really found that ideal service which targeted the whole body. Well Raynor massage does, not just that but also the mind, I was blown away by it each day we went through the course. Dave's teaching technique is so caring, and informative. Not only were we taught in absolute detail, we were also taught the business skills to enable us to set up straight away once we graduated. On top of all that, the setting in the Devon retreat was amazing, so relaxing and friendly, do not hesitate if you're thinking of doing this, it will be one of the best things you ever do. More...

Heather was an experienced masseur, great at finding those problem areas and really listens to the issuea you may be having .

Heather did a massage for both my husband and I. We both agreed that she was fabulous. A perfect mix of pressure and pleasure making it enjoyable but also knowing it was helping with tight/sore muscles. Very knowledgeable and really worked on the areas that needed it. Felt amazing afterwards. Will definitely go back to Heather and would highly recommend. More...

I have just completed the certificate training and its been awesome. Its perfectly designed for u to start to work as a deep tissue therapist and advance to a holistic level. In my case its been easy to pick up the tecnhnique and philosophie of the treatment since I had done an oil massage couse before in Thailand and therefore I was familiarized at giving a soft tissue massage and already confident at massaging other people bodies . I can honestly say this technique changed my approach to massage and its worth it infinitely more than the other that was just a routine with no effect other than relaxation ,though as a starting point is fine. Summing up, if you respect and love yourself and are willing to provide a serious service to society becoming a respectfull professional then do not hesitate to do the course. More...

My experience was incredible. I learn't so much from the course, not only massage but how to better my wellbeing. I have since been so driven to push my business and have taken Dave's business sense and passion along with me. Just want to say thank you so much Dave for inspiring me to work towards my full potential. I highly recommend the course for anyone! More...

What can I say that hasn't already been said by SO MANY before me........so ill just keep it short about my personal journey and to the point. I've been looking to change my life / career to a much calmer positive way. I've wanted to get into massage therapy for a long long time so did lots of research where I came across Dave and what he had to offer. I admit at first I was sceptical and took a long time before I decided to book on the 2 courses. IM SO GLAD I DID and now wished I had done so sooner. Dave is an amazing person / Teacher with the ability to teach his great skill set and vast knowledge to ANYBODY willing to learn in a professional yet comfortable and sometimes funny manner making it easier to absorb . A personal note to Dave: Thank you for investing your time in me and my new journey you have no idea how much I appreciate that and everything you taught me. I will make you proud of me and the turn around you have started in me as a person. Bambos. More...

I was fortunate enough to do Dave’s Certificate in Raynor Massage in October 2019. I’m so grateful I was guided to do the course, both to learn the Raynor technique but also to be taught by Dave and his team, Lori and Christian. I found Dave to be extremely grounded, down to earth, professional, passionate, caring and knowledgeable. The technique itself was also extremely impressive in terms of what it can achieve and help people with. I am attending the Diploma course in Jan 2020 and I can’t wait! I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in the true therapeutic effects of massage and bodywork. Thanks again to Dave and team. More...

Dave is an inspiration and someone more than happy to share his wealth of knowledge of Raynor massage; from understanding tension bands, the techniques as well as both physical and emotional healing. Major back pain led me to researching for a massage technique that works for me! A sedentary job has led to continuing back problems and I had tried a whole host of other therapists with a variety of different styles. It was time to find out for myself what really does work and how to relieve my constant pain.Hands on from day one, Dave's instruction, experiences shared and true passion is given with a smile, a touch of humour and a genuine desire to help. At the end of the course I was able to practice professionally and all without having to go back to a classroom. Above all I have finally found a massage therapy which relieves my back issues. Dave, you're a star. Thank you for sharing this experience with me. More...

Had a great week in Dublin learning with Dave on the massage course, really looking forward to spending more time with him on the next course. Lots of learning in a relaxed setting, Dave held the space perfectly for the group to open up, laugh and feel safe together. This kind of evironment helped us retain all the new information being taught and demonstrated. More...

Christian is the best massage therapist I have come across. I play semi professional tennis and receive a weekly treatment for him. He goes above and beyond to ensure any muscle issues are resolved and could not be more accommodating, providing the most flexible approach to appointment time requests I have experienced. I have used him repeatedly for more than a year and would thoroughly recommend. More...

I went on the retreat in Devon and completed the certificate and diploma, going on the retreat was a fantastic way to learn I just can't believe how much knowledge Dave shared with us. Dave really is a brilliant teacher, very thorough in his teaching methods everything is explained so well and delivered in manageable stages so you don't feel overwhelmed. Dave is also very funny, kind and passionate about helping people. I have left with a brilliant new career as a deep tissue therapeutic massage therapist and lifelong friends. Thanks Dave looking forward to the advanced training now More...

Just completed Dave's certificate course, one thing I would like to make very clear DO NOT listen to anyone who tells you YOU CANNOT become a professional competent massage therapist in 5 days training, because you can, I and many others have thanks to Dave. Dave has an amazing gift of making his students feel relaxed from day one, his delivery of information and demonstrations are clear and understandable and teaches you only what you need to know, for me personally this is really a life changing experience, Dave does not only teach you how to become a massage therapist, he will give you powerful information to send you on your way to becoming your own person in this business if you so wish to do so, I do not think Dave realises the impact he has had on me, as he has lifted my spirit and conferdence to help me achieve something in life I never thought was possible. My final words will bedo not think twice get yourself booked onto this course if you truely want to be a massage therapist that gives genuine results. More...

I have today completed the Certificate level of Dave’s training and this is by far the best course I have ever been on, I have been wanting to do a massage course for ages and found Dave online and started following him, read his journey and reviews and decided this is the one for me and wow did i made the right decision. The course has gone way above my expectations. Dave is amazing, his delivery, passion, knowledge made absorbing this wealth of information possible in such a short time. He is transparent, he doesn’t leave anything incomplete for you to wonder how, he explains everything in a way that a lay person can understand, his demonstrations are done so honestly, professional and effective, there’s no false hope or misleading. His pitch is at the right level for each and everyone.Connecting with Dave is so easy and it flows so natural, he is very professional and has a wicked sense of humour. I have learnt so much, Dave has delivered to us in a week information/skills and knowledge that would take weeks/months in a college class room where we wouldn’t even get this high level or quality of skills , he is fantastic, and the information/skills provided are very relevant to the course.If you are looking for a massage course don’t even question yourself about joining Dave, you have simply chosen the winner. Dave is awesome and he has an amazing team support in Lori and Christian who are super. Thanks you guys. Dave’s delivery is not one you will find anywhere else and I cannot thank him enough for offering such a great course. I cannot wait to go out there and make him proud.Thank you Dave, best course ever % More...

I took this course to add another string to my bow as a yoga teacher. Am SO glad I did! I learnt the necessary skills and gained huge confidence in an area that was completely new to me. Dave is a fabulous teacher, (and a smashing human being!). I am now able to increase my income with a different skill that is directly linked to the holistic field that I work in. My advice to any yoga instructors out there wondering "which course and is it worthwhile?" is a big fat YES! More...

I was a caregiver for people in their homes and had been looking at doing massage for a while as I know that touch is very healing and therapeutic. I had looked into a number of courses and viewed Dave's massage on line. I tried it out on myself - on my feet - and it really helped. I also liked the idea that there was no written exam which is not what massage is about - it's about touch and caring for your client which can't be quantified.Dave was very comprehensive; covering tools of the trade, setting up your business, safety; aswell as the techniques, of course. We were given plenty of practice on each other and support was readily available as is ongoing.Dave punctuated the course with humour and I very much enjoyed myself aswell as learning a very valuable skill.I was also impressed how Dave shared his mistakes with the group and what he'd wished he'd been told as a student so we wouldn't make the same mistakes. It is obvious that he is passionate about Raynor Massage and wants us all to succeed.I felt very cared for, encouraged and supported throughout.Elaine Crew- April 2019 Course, London More...

I've just completed the certificate course and will be looking to go back to complete the diploma as soon as possible. Dave is a great trainer and coach, building confidence and competence whilst openly sharing practical information and experiences that you can apply to your own business. After just one week, I feel more than ready and able to start working with clients immediately as well as build a secure and thriving business....and most importantly, I've already have great reviews from my first clients! I cannot recommend this course highly enough, especially for those that are active learners. More...

Dave teaches you everything you need to know from every angle of running your own business. This is s very professional course, brilliant venue and Dave has a wonderful team who support and share their wealth of experience. I found this course totally engaging, dynamic and met some wonderful like minded people. One of the best courses I've attended, it's been fun, rewarding and I'm looking forward to the advanced course later in the year. A big thank you to Dave and his team. More...

Just do it. As a personal trainer looking to deliver value to my clients this course (Certificate & Diploma) has given me everything I need to deliver a quality sports massage - and more. The course has been perfect. The right pace, the right duration and the right skills. Dave and his assistants are high quality massage therapists and will give you what you need to succeed as a massage therapist. Then you just have to do it. If you want to learn to deliver a quality massage that will release tension, in an environment where you will practically be exploring the techniques, giving and receiving massage throughout the course and in a clean and friendly environment - this is the place to do that. Thank you for everything Dave, Christian, Lori and my fellow peers! More...

An enjoyable experience from beginning to end. The training was first class. We were hands-on-bodies from day one. Feeling comfortable massaging every size and shape of body was an anxiety I overcame comfortably by the end of the course. The other thing that worried me, and which was also resolved, was a fear of feeling tired and wearing out my own body - especially arms and thumbs. We were taught by coaching and example how to use our body position and how to sit into our centre and protect our backs whilst giving a strong and deep massage. After five days of giving and receiving massage for hours every day, I was delighted that nothing hurt. On the contrary! The information and skills presented during the course built in a logical and user-friendly way from one day to the next. Dave Taylor is not shy about addressing questions with refreshing candour and often humour. He is a practical and honest teacher who tells you straight and clearly all you need to know about working with clients and how to set up a business after training. He clarifies the steps to take and provides a wealth of links, information, contacts and advice for all aspects of setting up your own practise - from insurance and how to advertise to how to choose your massage table. I highly recommend this practical and informative course to anyone who is serious about bringing deep tissue massage into their lives, either informally or as a business. Training in the Raynor method is well worth the money and time you will invest in it. You will be amazed how much you learn and how confident you feel after just five days. More...

Just flown home from Dave Taylor Certificate Raynor Massage Training in Dublin. The decision to embark on a completely new path in life had felt epic and momentous and after a chat with Dave on the phone before the course I knew this was probably going to be something special. And I was not wrong. I soon discovered many of the other folk were coming from a similar position and regardless of background/previous massage experience, Dave made it feel so normal to be doing this. He completely understood us on every level. The course has been fascinating, fun, emotional(especially if you are being demonstrated on?) , enlightening, exhilarating. Who knew what massaging a finger could do to you.Dave and Cristian are tremendous teachers. Listen, if you are out there worrying if you could do this or not, don't worry, just go for it, you may suprise yourself and whatever you choose to do with these new skills next, every single person from my group will tell you that you will never regret it. I'm just so excited to get massaging and get on the Diploma Course next. Cheers Dave! More...

Hi, my name is Sue and I have just completed the 5 day certificate course with Dave Taylor in Raynor Massage, in Dublun (March 2019). I have trained in a few different massage techniques, swedish massage, & pregnancy massage, lymphatic drainage, & beauty theraphy. I can honestly say this course is a game changer, it totally spun my head around. I'll be honest, at first I was a bit sceptic but within the first couple of hours I fully knew that I had made the right decision on taking this course. I got it, I now understand the reason for massage......find the tension in the body and release it, Simple but so powerful both physically & emotionally, I personally experienced this on the course. Here is the beauty about this course, you don't need any previous training in massage & honestly I think that would probably stand to you, go in as a blank canvas & learn from the best. Dave's training techniques are second to none & I sincerely mean that, he is so caring, chilled, patient, kind, my list could just go on but the bottom line is he cares, he cares that you get it, you understand it and that you are safe, the back up support is fantastic, YOUR NOT LEFT SWINGING I promise. If you are considering taking this course, stop considering right now and book it, I mean it, you've just got to do it, its AMAZING stuff. I am without a doubt 100% booking on for the diploma then on to the advanced course. So yes........... get yourself trained with the best that's out there. Sue More...

I completed the Diploma course with an awesome group of people and trainers in January. Dave is a fantastic teacher; Down to earth, realistic yet professional. I gained fantastic practical skills and knowledge in relation to different techniques, tension bands and how Raynor massage can promote both physical and emotional healing. There is also a big emphasis on correct posture/stance and how to avoid injury to yourself when giving massage which I feel is important to note. Furthermore, I learned basic marketing skills which I am now looking to build on as well as utilise ongoing support opportunites that are available following the course. For me, Dave's course has given me so much more than the qualification itself. It has given me a drive, energy and confidence to start my own business which I am in the process of. If you are thinking of a career change, confused in life, doubting yourself or simply want a new challenge, sign up for Dave's Diploma course. You gain so much from having the additional 5 days to gain further skills, practice, gain inner confidence and value the potential power of Raynor Massage. Thank you for the experience. More...

I am so grateful that I have done this particular course and not any other, I can't imagine doing a written exam and learning as much as I did in only 5 days. Literally, in just 2 days I was already confident enough to embrace it. There isn't any secret as it all comes down to the techniques. Having Dave as our teacher was the biggest bonus, you can feel his genuine support and he is always by your side, so you don't need to wait to ask for a demonstration when you are unsure. Also, thank you to his assistants, they are very unique people and you can see that in their style of massaging. More...

I attended the certificate/diploma retreat in November 2018. After much research I found Raynor massage to be the only course to be complementary with an energy course I had already undertaken. My idea was to add the massage to my offering but having qualified I now see the healing as an add-on to the massage therapy. Dave is an enthusiastic and fun trainer of the highest quality. His attention to detail before, during and after the course have been exceptional, you certainly won't feel like you've been sent out on your own with your certificate. Dave continues to provide reassuring support. If you have any interest in qualifying as a massage therapist, this technique combined with Dave's teaching ability is a compelling offering. 10/10 More...

I went on the retreat in April & it really was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I’ve always loved massage & initially gained a VTCT qualification in 2007 but never had the confidence to go for it & slipped back into office work again. I started to question what I wanted to do with my life & kept coming back to the massage. I didn’t want to do another lengthy course & although I had seen details of the retreat the year before I had dismissed it because I couldn’t validate spending that type of money on myself. However after a few personal issues I decided to get loan & go for it. I hadn’t heard of this type of massage but it sounded interesting & I thought it might give me the boost & confidence I desperately needed....but it has given me so much more! The massage itself is totally awesome, the best I have ever received. It’s fantastic at releasing tension from the body but I didn’t expect it to have such an effect on me emotionally as well. It really is something very special. Dave is a fantastic teacher & amazing at what he does, this really is his calling. Doing this at the retreat made it even more spectacular though. The hosts Lucy & Oli are beyond special & created such an amazing space for us all. I felt so cared for the whole time. And the food?! Wow! If your worried about going veggie for the week, don’t be, it was amazing! Olivia’s morning yoga was also fantastic & an awesome way to start the day, it also really helped with the massage, they go very well together. And to top it all off I made the most amazing friends! Within 4 months of coming home I’d set up my own massage therapy business! It really has been life changing & I feel very blessed to be on this journey. I’ve booked onto the advanced course now as I want more & more!! The support from Dave has been amazing, both during the course & beyond. His help & advise has been invaluable & he’s always on hand to answer any further questions you might have. If you’ve been thinking about doing this course, just go for it, you won’t be disappointed! I pondered over it for ages & so pleased I finally took the leap! More...

THE BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!! For the past 3 years I have been raising my son and to do this massage training in 8 days on retreat has changed my life. For years I have been looking for a course that would suit my time constraints and i found it here. Dave is honestly the best teacher I've ever had. I love how professional he is, without taking all the fun out of learning. He is so very very passionate about what he does and it shows in his training. He talks you through everything you need to learn massage wise and gives some great pointers on business. I am a week on from my training and already have my first paying client booked in. I have also never felt more supported in the after care that Dave provides. He is always available to support and help where needed, so this is not just a situation where you do the training and you're on your own. More...

I was so happy when I found Dave Taylor’s intensive fast-track massage training course online. Having made up my mind that I wanted to learn massage I wanted to get on with it. I live in Italy and all I could find nearby were short weekend courses or yearlong courses. I also wanted to learn effective therapeutic massaging rather than relaxing spa massage. The course teaches deep tissue massage and was perfect for me. I did the certificate and diploma course at the Devon Retreat in only 8 days. We started massaging from day 1. At day 8 I really felt that, sure I’m still a beginner, but I can already give a person a good massage. I feel ready to go out there and use my new skills. Dave is an excellent teacher and always very encouraging. I’m so glad I did this course. More...

My Massage from Dave Taylor gave me a whole new connection with my body. A year ago I had a miscarriage and after the massage I realised that I had been resentful at my body for 'failing me'. Dave's massage gave me something that no other talking therapy has been able to, a love and connection to my body that I had lost. I feel lighter and freer, it is a massage that I will truly never forget. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dave Taylor. More...

Not only a professional service but catered just for my requirements and boy did it work.
Throughout the massage Keo was very professional and very knowledgeable about his profession. Today my body is very relaxed but im sure keo's fingers must ache from the pressure he was using ( i needed deep tissue massage) Fantastic work Keo Thank you !!!

I have just had my first massage with Dave. I am a Yoga Teacher and I found Dave's form of massage to be one of the best I've ever experienced.

Dave found sore areas I had no idea about and I can't wait for my next treatment. More...

By far the best massage I've ever had. I wasn't aware this was possible or experienced anything like it but Dave found tension in my body which led to some amazing releases . It brought out lots of toxins ,afterwards i felt at ease ,my breathing was very calm and generally felt very relaxed.
I highly recommend Dave especially if you feel like you have some stored tension in your body or feel stressed.

My nan who passed away last year and she once told me to follow my dreams. My dream was to become a massage therapist. I was waiting for a friend when I put in google massage training and Dave’s website was the first thing I saw. I booked for the Devon retreat and completed my course (certificate and diploma)back in May. Dave was a great teacher. He can motivate and inspire you to leave your comfort zone and push your boundaries. Dave is great in inspiring “anything’s possible attitude”. The retreat was a great time in my life as I met new people (great people) who I bonded with so well. Dave also for my assessment gave me the gentleman who owned and ran the farm and his massage really pushed me to my limit but when Dave came to me and said he loved it, I nearly cried. I now have a small client base that is growing. I am still following the diet from the retreat. My wife is now saving to do the course as she can see the difference it made to my life. I will strongly recommend to course. Dave thank you for changing my life and helping me follow my nan’s advice. More...

What a truly excellent and well ran course. It’s amazing what you can learn in a short space of time and Dave is brilliant, I mean really brilliant!

I made an impulsive decision to take a last minute cancellation place on Dave’s Raynor Massage certificate slash(!) diploma course hosted by The Retreat People in Devon and I’m so glad I did! It sounds cheesy but the whole experience was life changing. The course exceeded my expectations, I learned to trust my instinct and intuition alongside the Raynor theory and practice. It has given me the confidence to set up my own massage therapy business. Dave deserves a lot of credit for this, his teaching style is calm, assured and encouraging. He delivers a great deal of knowledge with humility and a quirky sense of humour. Everyone on the course came away with so much more than a new skill set. Thank you Dave and pups Tia and Daisy More...

For someone who has never had any previous experience in massaging, I was very surprised at how much I had achieved after just a couple training sessions with Dave Taylors's guidance, thanks to him I have now completed and received my Certificate and Diploma of Raynor Massage. The whole thing was very well and professionally organised by Dave Taylor and his assistant Lori, who were both wonderful and always eager to help. The atmosphere was always very lovely and energetic from everyone, we were all enjoying ourselves the entire time. The location was wonderful and very beautiful, we had the opportunity to wonder around and explore during our breaks. This was a very valuable and enjoyable life experience and I am very much looking forward to doing the advanced course in the future. More...

I have been working in a corporate role for over 20 years and decided it was time for a change. After searching for courses that I could take during my annual holiday leave, I found Dave Taylor's details. I booked onto the November 2017, 8-day retreat and couldn't have made a better choice. From massage techniques, business skills, aromatherapy, client service and terrific encouragement - Dave packs it all into 8 days. The retreat environment is perfect for 'seeing one, doing one and getting one' to ensure you really know what you're doing. Dave has a open and personal approach that helps build confidence and trust quickly. I would highly recommend this course if you're looking to change direction in life and want a great way to jump right into new career. Leaving the retreat, I'm accredited and can start the new life immediately. Thank you Dave! More...

Exceeded all my expectations. Dave has a wonderfully informal style of teaching which kept me really focussed yet relaxed and able to take in everything covered in this amazing combined course. The way the practicals were consolidated and built upon each day certainly worked for me and I felt the end product evolved naturally. Dave’s passion and drive was truly inspiring but, for me, it was his gentle encouragement and understanding that made the biggest impact. Thank you Dave! I have to add that the team of Olivia, Lucy & Ollie made the experience at Natsley Farm extra special: from Lucy’s warm hug on arrival & her constant upbeat gorgeousness whilst running the logistics faultlessly; through Olivia’s amazing energising yoga every morning & her sharing of her journeys with yoga and healing; to Ollie’s ABSOLUTELY AMAZING FOOD & his many hilarious stories. I was extra fortunate to have the best group of fellow trainees � More...

Having worked full time for almost 18years in an extremely busy target driven job, i finally made the massive decision to take a different direction in my career. After taking a year out to spend some quality time with my children i was then drawn towards Reflexology to which I am currently studying for the Diploma. I felt i needed an additional treatment to offer potential clients as my intention is to set up a business in due course. Holding alot of tension in my own shoulders and lower back pain along with a tingling weakness in my left arm, i have more often than not felt sheer disappointment after receiving deep tissue massage treatments that gave me little or no relief from tension. Having reviewed Dave Taylor Raynor Deep Tissue techniques and an advertised training course at certificate level in the Commercial Rowing Club in Dublin 8, not very far from Heuston Station which was ideal for me travelling from the midlands, i made the decision to go for it. I must admit initially i was a little skeptical that i could be a competent deep tissue massage therapist after only five days. But since qualification i have completed several Raynor massages on various individuals, all of whom i purposely chose for their direct, honest and straight talking personalities. It was really important for me to receive honest feedback. Here are just little snippets of what they told me - "fantastic" "best nights sleep i ever had" "wow" "painful but in a really good way" "savage" (people from Ireland will understand that one) "super". I don't feel I have sufficient words that justify how actually good Dave Taylor's training is. A no-nonsense, hands on approach that gets right into the root of tension in the body while at all times in a very professional and relaxed manner. Having received as part of the training the Raynor massage I would have happily paid the course fee in turn for the daily relief of knots and tension without ever receiving any qualification but obviously that was the icing on the cake. All this deep rooted tension had been building up for many years and after the five days I really felt so much lighter and truly amazed at the results. My plan was to mainly focus on the Reflexology treatments, while this therapy remains very important to me, I genuinely am of the opinion that the Deep Tissue Raynor Massage will primarily be the more sought after treatment. For any person considering doing this training course in Ireland, I promise, you will not regret it. Thank you Dave Taylor More...

I did the certificate and diploma course at Natsley Farm in September. I'd spent a long time deliberating about it, but what ultimately made me book was talking to Dave on the phone, he came across as incredibly knowledgeable, honest and genuinely passionate about teaching people how to give an amazing massage that clients will love! Now, with hindsight, I can honestly say that there was no need for any hesitation or deliberation. This was so much more than "just a training course" and you come out of the other side feeling fantastic in so many ways!! The location is such a special place and it's such a great environment in which to learn. The hosts, Oli and Lucy, make you feel welcome and relaxed from the moment you arrive and Oli's food is out of this world! I have wonderful memories of all the people in the group, and it was great to all be on the same journey together. When it came to the course, I was still a little skeptical about how it was going to be possible to learn everything in such a short space of time, but Dave assured us that with hard work and focus, by the end of the eight days we would all be able to offer clients a truly professional massage to a degree that many of them wouldn't have experienced before - he wasn't wrong!! The group was from a huge variety of backgrounds, mostly with no previous experience of massage and all with different reasons for wanting to learn. The content is thorough, expertly and methodically taught by Dave and there is plenty of opportunity throughout the course to work 'hands-on' to practice what you've learnt, building up your skills day by day until at the end of the course you're able to confidently deliver an accomplished, professional massage to a member of the public. Not only does the course teach you all the necessary practical techniques, it also covers the business and marketing skills you will need if you want to start your own business. All of these things, coupled with the great range of reference and support materials you will be provided with, ensure that when you leave the course on the last day, you are well and truly prepared and qualified to treat clients with this amazing technique! If you have any doubts - don't! If you want to learn how to give great massage - book yourself on this course - you won't be disappointed! Thank you Dave, Oli and Lucy! More...

i attended the Natsley Farm retreat in September this year. I was very nervous however from day 1 everyone was so welcoming. We had fantastic food cooked by Oli the chef. Lucy led a yoga class each morning and made the most amazing deserts and homemade bread. Both Oli and Lucy made this experience very special. They were the most amazing support as well as making spare time fun. The course was led by Dave who I can honestly say is the one of the most loveliest persons I have met. His teaching of Raynor Massage is done in such a way that you feel at ease whilst learning all the skills you need to be the best massage Therapist you can be! His approach is passionate and supportive. I would recommend anyone to this course as there is no other massage quite like the one you will learn from Dave. The retreat allows you to focus away from everyday life. I have since this course set up my own massage business and have 18 bookings for October. The feedback so far from clients has been amazing. Thank you Dave More...

I completed Dave's massage training at Natsley Farm in Devon this September and was so glad to have stumbled upon its existence while Googling retreats. I was a bit burnt out and getting over a challenging period of anxiety and insomnia when I booked my place alongside seven other special souls on a retreat which nourishes your mind, body and spirit while tooling you up with the skills to give a banging massage - healing for oneself and others. I had no massage experience other than what I'd gathered from those I'd received (I knew I recognised a good one). The days on the retreat started with yoga and meditation, followed by class, AKA partaking in Dave's witty sharing of his expertise then practising on each other. Evenings were spent in the hot tub (there's also a heated pool at the gaff) or chilling with a DVD in the living room, after a glorious vegan dinner and dessert (the food is epic on this retreat, a real detox). The 8 days are paced so you go deeper into the learning while building confidence bit by bit. The environment is supportive, and you learn as much by being massaged as massaging. It was interesting to experience the training alongside people of such varied backgrounds, from project manager to personal trainer, interior designer and psychotherapist. Everyone had their story and we now continue in touch about each other's progress - there's a buzzing online community of graduates. If you're drawn to this course it's for a reason, go with your gut! More...

Dave has a great way of teaching, with a really great hands on approach, I actually couldn't believe how much I learnt just from the first day. I've already started to get some clients, who are all appearing to love this technique, and it's actually showing them how much tension they are holding that they didn't even realise they had. The group all got along really well, which I attribute to Dave's personable approach, and it was a really enjoyable week, in a beautiful venue. Excited to do the diploma next now. More...

I thoroughly recommend Dave Taylor Deep Tissue Massage. I have been seeing Ed Taoka regularly for about four months and the impact it has had on my health has been noticeable. I suffer from a lung condition and circulation problems and both have improved since having regular deep tissue massage, particularly my lung condition where I have been able to lower the dosage of medication I take because my breathing has improved.Ed is a great guy and absolutely professional.

What a life-changing week!!! The certificate course assured me that it is possible to learn how to deliver a safe and effective deep tissue massage in five days in the right learning environment. Dave has mastered the art of teaching massage as well as giving it!! Layering the key teachings of Raynor massage, with examples from his own experience, videos, demonstrations, humour, questions, and plenty of hands-on, both giving and receiving massage. Also holding a great learning space with his patience, ever-present smiling friendliness, humour, and passion for massage and all things related. The amount of information received in the five days was perfect for me. I don't feel I was taught anything unnecessary. With awareness freed from over-thinking I could really connect and respond to what was sensed in the recipient’s body. Dave provided great insight into the life of a massage therapist. Things such as business and advertising strategy, and client-communication, were not overlooked, receiving the attention deserved. The afternoons spent giving and receiving massage, with Dave available for advice and feedback, were very empowering and made me aware that PRACTICE was key to improvement. Dave directed our attention to our fingers/hands as we practiced, learning how to "see with our hands". Dave absolutely embodies his teachings, whether this is about how to empathise with a client, trusting intuition during a massage, applying good business strategy ect. To see someone walking the talk is inspiring. Thanks again Dave :) More...

I met with Lori and instantly liked her. She made careful notes and listened to me. She explained the whole process and what she would do and focus on and how she would get results. She is very easy to get on with - a lovely person - and a very strong and thorough therapist who pays attention to you. She is very thorough with the massage and I cannot rate her or the benefits highly enough. I come out feeling so much better and look forward to the next session as it does so much good. More...

Dave is an amazing guy with unique talent, its very hard to put into words how privileged i was for him to teach me and a group of also amazing people how to massage. He showed us with a hands on approach how to find tension anywhere in the body and remove it, leaving the person receiving the massage in wonderment and awe how anyone can make you feel like that, but believe me he can .Dave was professional, compassionate, caring, focused and a bloody nice bloke too!!! , l cant thank you enough for sharing you skills with me.

Just been on the latest course in September 2015, The Venue at Natsley Farm for the Raynor massage course was beautiful, so much that none of us (the Students) wanted to return to our normal lives. The Raynor Massage course by the wonderful Dave Taylor was Professional, Helpful, Friendly, and Fun. Daisy (Dave's Dog)gave us lots of cuddles. Lucy and Oliver( A Couple of Healers), made us fantastic vegan meals catering for some with special diets, even the meateaters enjoyed them!! The meals were tasty, healthy and enjoyed by everyone. Lucy, Oliver, Dave and Daisy made us welcome for an enjoyable stay at Natsley farm. Iv'e made some wonderful new friends which i will keep intouch with. IF you are a potential student reading this- Quick sign up for the next course in Raynor massage- you wont regret it and it will be the right step to change your life to greater things love and Light Stevie More...

As a runner, I have struggled with shin splints over the past 3-4 years and Dave Taylor's treatment has been so important to the conditioning of my legs, without his therapy I would not be able to run as frequently as I do. He offers a superb service, not only is the massage itself but he is very friendly and welcoming and the entire experience is a wonderful thing. He has worked very hard over the past few years to create a brilliant service and I will continue to visit him throughout my life. His technique is a cut above the rest and really sets the benchmark when it comes to sports massage. More...
