What is Vertical Reflexology?

Play Video

Vertical Reflexology Techniques (VRT) are a unique method of weight-bearing reflexology which is briefly applied to the dorsal feet and hands. It was discovered and developed by Lynne Booth over a period of 27 years and her accredited classes have been taught to over 10,000 reflexologists internationally. This multi-award winning modality, also known as Vertical Reflex Therapy, includes recognition from the Institute of Complementary and Natural Medicine (ICNM) for its ‘Outstanding Contribution to Complementary Medicine’ in 2011. Lynne has also received Honorary Fellowships and in 2018 was awarded the prestigious ‘Excellence in Reflexology Innovation’ Award by the Association of Reflexologists. This is a peer-group nominated and selected award. VRT complements classical reflexology and provides a profound level of reflexology for all ages that can aid general well-being, relieve tension and bring about a state of relaxation throughout the body. Reflexology Innovation’ Award by the Association of Reflexologists. This is a peer-group nominated and selected award. VRT complements classical reflexology and provides profound level of reflexology for all ages that can aid general well-being, relieve tension and bring about a state of relaxation throughout the body.

Reflexologists do not claim to diagnose , cure or prescribe. Reflexology is a very individual treatment which is tailored to you as a whole person, taking into account both physical and non-physical factors that might be affecting your well-being. Reflexology is a safe and non-invasive therapy as no instruments are used, and only the feet and hands are touched. It is suitable for clients of all ages, from young babies to older and infirm persons, and is used to support everyone from professional sports persons to end of life care situations.

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. Qualified reflexologists are highly trained and work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients. VRT is an acclaimed award-winning newer form of reflexology that is applied to the weight-bearing feet or hands for a few minutes before a conventional reflexology treatment. The VRT practitioner will take your medical history and examine your feet and hands to isolate any problem areas.
