BRANDON Raynor has a good opinion of Gympie - just ask him.

The region's family values, together with its agricultural feel and peace and quiet have prompted Mr Raynor and wife Cori-Nicole to relocate their business, Brandon Raynor's School of Massage and Natural Therapies, to the Gold City.

The massage business was established in 1999 and specialises in massage courses in Raynor Massage, vegan and vegetarian wholefood cooking classes and naturopathy courses.

After nursing this relocation through the initial teething period six months ago, Mr Raynor has grand plans for expansion.

"I would like to establish a worldwide retreat and training centre," he said.

Mr Raynor brings to the business a wealth of knowledge and experience in massage and tapping into the body's capacity to heal itself.

In 1999, he started teaching massage in Bondi, Sydney and then in 2002, expanded internationally to Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, United States, Singapore, Dubai, India and New Zealand.

Mrs Raynor founded the Brandon Raynor School of Massage business in 2012, and the couple has been busy ever since.

Mr Raynor holds a variety of qualifications, including diplomas in naturopathy, shiatsu, remedial massage, Chinese herbal medicine and Ayurvedic medicine - with origins in India.
