Vertical Reflexology Techniques (VRT)
VRT was first discovered by Lynne Booth over twenty years ago and within three years had gained a worldwide professional reputation as an effective form of weight bearing reflexology on the hands and feet.
Suaimhneas Reflexology is an authorised member of the VRT Network. It can be an incredibly effective technique that works on the dorsal aspect of the hands and feet whilst weight bearing and can be included at the beginning and end of a traditional reflexology treatment or on its own.
The theory behind VRT is that the anatomic nerves in the feet and hands become sensitized when weight bearing, the reflexes are thus heightened creating a quicker therapeutic response. It can be particularly helpful for intransigent conditions such as muscular skeletal problems.
