“Since qualifying 19 years ago, I can honestly say, VRT are the best training courses I have attended to add that extra special something to my reflexology. VRT has played a pivotal role in my practice, with astonishing outcomes. Thank you.” Leonie Pape, MAR.

 I have recently had the privilege of reviewing Lynne Booth’s e-learning programme for basic and advanced Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT) techniques. What an incredibly comprehensive and well thought-out programme it is. I love the way she has integrated video, audio, text and quizzes to engage the learner and guide them through the programme. There are also links to some very insightful articles that would prove extremely beneficial to experienced and inexperienced practitioners alike. The wonderful technique that uses the weight-bearing hand and foot in a variety of different ways is both innovative and brilliant. I have been using VRT for many years now and am pleased to say that I wholeheartedly back Lynne’s work and invite you to participate in this wonderful advanced programme of learning. Dr Carol Samuel PhD, FFHT, HMAR T/A Reflexmaster.

VRT Basic and Advanced Online Course review

“A really absorbing, informative and inspirational online course.  I felt as though I was in the room with Lynne and loved her gentle encouragement throughout with a whole range of teaching techniques, worksheets and clear instructions for practical work.
The course guides you from the basic Vertical Reflexology techniques through to the advanced techniques gradually building on your confidence, knowledge and skills. It is really helpful to see the moves so well demonstrated with follow-along videos. The sections on Self-Help techniques and working on the hands are extremely valuable for many reflexologists wishing to offer extra support for their clients.
I was also very appreciative of Lynne’s ideas for adapting techniques for babies, children, older people and less mobile people. Six months access to the course means that you can take it at your own pace and recap on any modules as necessary. And then you can immediately put the techniques into practice. All reflexologists will benefit from taking the online course and so will their clients of all ages and abilities!”
Mary Atkinson, author, tutor, reflexologist. FHT Complementary Therapist of the Year 2020
