Discover the Rewards of Learning a Relaxation Touch Therapy!
Anyone can learn The ‘M’ Technique®! It is suitable for caregivers, family members, volunteers, patient ambassadors, friends,
as well as nurses, massage therapists and other health professionals.
The ‘M’ Technique® is different from massage--it is more like a choreographed dance. This technique is a registered method of touch suitable when massage is inappropriate, such as for the frail, chronically ill, critically ill, or anyone that prefers to achieve a deep sense of relaxation through light touch. Each simple sequence is performed in a set sequence at a set pressure.
The 'M' Technique® is an evidence-based, peer-reviewed, clinical touch used by many healthcare organizations.
The Full Body ‘M’ Technique® (Practitioner Course) can be learned in 2 days. The ‘M’ Technique® Hand & Foot Course for Hospitals or other Healthcare Organizations/Facilities takes just 4 hours. Each course is taught by a Certified R.J. Buckle Instructor.
Due to the pandemic, R.J. Buckle Associates, LLC and Holistic Health & Education Services have made the decision to offer virtual instruction for the 'M' Technique® Classes. The goal of these changes is to minimize the need to gather in groups and spend prolonged time in close proximity as well as limit inter/intrastate traveling. It is our goal to resume in person classes when it is deemed safe for all involved. Thank you for your understanding and we are excited to have the opportunity to guide you on your 'M' Technique® journey.
