The ‘M’ technique®

Touch is one of the basic forms of communications, yet many of us are afraid to touch those who need it most.

The ‘M’ technique® is a simple method of structured touch. Each movement and sequence is done in a set pattern at a set pressure and set speed, which never change. The M technique is different from massage and can be learned in a weekend.

The ‘M’ technique® is suitable for the very fragile; the critically ill, actively dying, or when the giver is not trained in massage. The ‘M’ technique® works on skin receptors which send signals to the brain and has been described as ‘physical hypnotherapy’ and a ‘spiritual dance’.

Anyone can learn the ‘M’ technique® – it is suitable for caregivers, family members, volunteers and friends as well as nurses and doctors. The The ‘M’ technique® course is accredited by FHT (Federation of Holistic Therapists) and CThA (Complementary Therapists Association) for CPD credit and is insured by Balens Ltd.
