Reflexology is an ancient non-intrusive complementary health therapy dating back 5,000 years, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg and hands correspond with different areas of the body. VRT is an acclaimed award-winning newer form of reflexology that has been taught internationally to thousands of practitioners.

The Booth Method of VRT (also known as Vertical Reflex Therapy) is a form of reflexology where the hands or feet are worked in a weight-bearing position for short periods, providing an intensive level of treatment that can aid general well-being, relieve tension in the body and bring about a state of relaxation throughout the body. Lynne has also been two awarded Honorary Fellowships from the Association of Reflexologists (AoR) and Advanced Reflexology Training (ART) for her services to reflexology.
