The ‘M’ Technique® is a method of structured touch. Each movement and sequence is done a set number of times, in a set pattern, at a set pressure and set speed that never change. This makes it extremely easy to learn. And, because the technique is completely choreographed it is completely reproducible and therefore useful in research.
The ‘M’ Technique® works on skin receptors that send signals to the brain. The technique has been described as physical hypnotherapy, ‘a kind of meditation’ and a ‘spiritual dance’. The ‘M’ Technique® is suitable for the very fragile, critically ill or actively dying patient, or when someone is just very stressed or when the giver is not trained in massage.
Anyone can learn the ‘M’ Technique® – it is suitable for caregivers, family members, volunteers, and friends as well as nurses, therapists and other health professionals. It is not necessary to have previous training in massage.
Touch is one of the basic forms of communications, yet many of us may be apprehensive to touch those who need it most. The ‘M’ Technique® is simple to learn. It is different from massage and the Practitioner course can be learned in a weekend.
The ‘M’ Technique® is accredited by IFPA(International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists), FHT( Federation of Holistic Therapists) and CThA (Complementary Therapists Association) for CPD credits and is insured by Balens Ltd
