Welcome to the Vertical Reflexology website
VRT 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. Lynne has also developed a series of special techniques used on a client when lying in a conventional position. These involve newmoves and synergistic work where hands and feet are worked together.

Thank you so much for such an inspiring course, VRT really is a fantastic tool to have up one's sleeve and I now use it on everyone if they're prepared to stand up that is!I have had some good successes with neck and shoulder pain with various teachers at the school I work at. In fact the effect has almost been instant when they involve minor pulls or strains, which is fantastic! Rupert French, VRT Practitioner and Reflexologist 2013
