Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT)

Vertical Reflexology techniques were first discovered by Lynne Booth over 19 years ago, and within three years had gained a world-wide professional reputation as an incredibly effective form of weight-bearing reflexology on theVRT logo hands and feet.

I have been trained by Lynne Booth to treat clients using VRT techniques and I am an authorised member of the VRT Network.  It is a remarkable reflexology discovery where the dorsal hand or foot reflexes are briefly treated while weight-bearing.  VRT can work on a subtle level enabling the body to accelerate its innate healing processes.  VRT techniques are brief and can be included at the beginning and end of a reflexology  treatment or on its own for first aid.

What are the benefits of VRT?    

VRT’s therapeutic response often appears to be quicker possibly because all the anatomic nerves in the feet and hands (and therefore the actual reflexes) become sensitised when weight-bearing which may increase the therapeutic response. VRT may help intransigent conditions especially muscular and joint issues. Clients can be offered comprehensive sessions whereby classical reflexology is combined with VRT.

Reflexology and VRT appear to help regulate sleep patterns and bring about deeper relaxation.  Self-help instruction for hand reflexology can be given to aid a restful night’s sleep.  Musculoskeletal problems, undefined back pain and sports injuries may respond well to reflexology and VRT.

Many reflexology practitioners are using VRT treatments in private practice, the workplace, hospitals, hospices and with both healthy and unwell clients of all ages including young children, babies, sports persons and older and infirm people.
