V.R.T. (Vertical Reflex Therapy) was developed twenty years ago by the renowned reflexologist Lynne Booth, and is an English method that is known about and practised internationally.
The primary function of this method is to help with muscular-skeletal issues. Over time, the method successfully relieved many other health problems.
V.R.T. is unique in its genre, and is original in both its approach and its techniques. This kind of reflexology is referred to as ‘weight bearing’, and is carried out using the person’s body weight as an aid.
The treatment is undertaken in standing position, or seated with the feet slightly supporting the body. This is when the nerves are at their most active, and so the messages are quickly transmitted to the necessary area. Even when the upper part is being treated, every point of the sole of the foot or palm of the hand can be accessed.
This method is ideal for working the reflex zones in greater depth, and can be effectively tailored to each individual.
The method can also be applied in short sessions, and enriches the traditional Reflexology practice by making it that much more effective.
Self-treatment can be very effective in the case of chronic pain
Synergetic reflexology is a technique used within V.R.T. in which reflex points on the hand and feet are worked simultaneously. This accelerates the body’s responses, and results in better mobility, that is achieved quickly.
The V.R.T. sequence is brief, and is practised at the beginning and end of the standard treatment.
V.R.T. nail working
This is a revolutionary technique that complements V.R.T. and makes use of a mini grid and mini cartography on every nail. It is generally applied ‘in support mode’.
Like the big toe, the thumb is exceptionally receptive and incorporates a miniature version of the five body zones (five zones in zone 1).
This technique is applied on every nail (hands and feet) but it is easier to apply to the hands, as the nails here are generally bigger
