Developed by Lynne Booth


Having trained in VRT Vertical Reflexology, I am delighted to have become an authorised member of the Vertical Reflex Therapy (VRT) Network, enabling me to encorporate these new techniques and benefits into my Reflexology treatments.

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.

How does it work?


Vertical Reflexology Technique (VRT) is a unique method of reflexology developed by Lynne Booth over 20 years, leading to an award from the Institute of Complementary and Natural Medicine (ICNM) for its ‘Outstanding Contribution to Complementary Medicine’ in 2011.

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.

How is the treatment given?


A VRT trained reflexologist will work on your weight-bearing feet and hands for a few minutes per treatment to accelerate the healing processes brought about in conjunction with classical reflexology treatments. You then recline in a comfortable chair and relax for your classical reflexology session which also incorporates new techniques from the VRT repertoire.

How many treatments will I need?


Several weekly treatments are usually needed before the body’s mechanism is stimulated enough to bring about a definitive change in a condition.

How quickly will I feel benefits?


Typically, clients usually report improvements within 3 - 6 treatments, whilst some clients may notice an improved sense of well-being almost immediately.

Once health is regained, periodic visits are recommended as a preventative measure to balance and harmonise the body.

Does it work?!


The anatomical explanation for VRT’s efficacy is that the nerves on the passive feet are naturally desensitised but, when weight-bearing, these nerves become sensitised. It is therefore suggested that the sensitised reflexes may appear to send a stronger energetic healing impulse to an organ, gland, muscle or skeletal system.

Research into VRT


In a small medically approved VRT study on pain and mobility over 60% of participants showed a remarkable improvement in seven weeks.

In a VRT workplace study, all clients showed an 80–90% improvement within four weeks.

Please try it.... I am confident you will love the benefits it brings!
