The Making of Massage Masters School
The school was originally founded by Rebecca Rogan Bch Int. Business Management; Dip R.M.; Aromatherapist; Cert. Yoga Instructor and Brandon Raynor N.D. (Naturopath). It began with a burning desire to create the best massage training education found anywhere in the world. And with a humble handful of students this dream was born, in Rebecca’s lounge room, in Sydney, in early 1998. From there, the school rapidly evolved and expanded. And now 15 years later, the school has successfully become the largest and the best massage training school of intensive massage courses in the world: operating in 9 different countries and more than 25 cities.
In the initial few years of operation, the school expanded city by city across Australia. In 2002 was given the name “Brandon Raynor’s School of Natural Therapies” (BRSNT) by Rebecca, in dedication to Brandon , who she states was her first meeting with a Massage Master. From that time, through to the present, the school ‘s popularity has continued to grow and prosper. In 2003 the school celebrated the official launch of its UK operations in England, Ireland and Scotland. And in late 2004 the school expanded throughout NZ. In 2005 , the South Africa, Canada and Singapore branches were established.
During the initial years of the school’s establishment, Rebecca spent much of her time travelling around Australia, her home country, seeking out the very best Massage Masters to learn from . Her passion for massage then took her further afield, specifically to those countries with international reputations for excellence in massage such as: Japan; Thailand; Hawaii; China and parts of Europe. Whereby she sought out and studied a variety of the best massages styles and techniques from different experts in the field and Massage Masters of their country. So in this way, Rebecca began discovering the secrets of true excellence in masterful massage therapy, that she proudly is helping pass on to the world via her massage therapy training schools.
The Latest Chapter: Massage Masters School (MMS)
By 2005 Rebecca’s dream to create the best massage therapy training education was unfolding. But at this stage she knew one missing link needed connecting to fulfill this dream. So she next set out with a mission to research and study the various massage education programmes from among the world’s leading establishments of massage therapy education . At the time, her busy international schedule, that kept her on the road almost six months of every year, allowed her the rare and golden opportunity to discover, study under and learn from the world’s premier massage and naturopathy schools. This research continued for over five years, taking her across Europe , USA, Canada, Australia , Japan, Thailand . In 2009, Rebecca and Brandon went their separate ways, and Brandon now individually runs the Brandon’s Raynor’s School of Natural Therapies. Rebecca has meanwhile continued on progressing, carefully integrating her years of experience, into developing a dynamic and ever-evolving massage training programme that provides the very best massage therapy education available.
Rebecca attributes the tremendous success of Massage Masters Schools to the many years of unique opportunity she has had to apprentice under the very best massage masters and learn from many leading massage schools world-wide.
She states that “MMS is a true pinnacle of my career success. I am deeply grateful for its continued success. It is my hope that MMS will continue on providing a tremendous contribution of healing to the world via all the lives we have the opportunity to touch.” Hawaii, 2012.
