Each movement is repeated a set number of times with the same very light pressure. It is carried out on the back, back of legs, face, head, neck/shoulders, arms/hands and front of the legs and feet. It gives a feeling of profound relaxation and is so gentle it has been described as magic, mesmerizing and physical hypnotherapy. The rationale for the set pattern of gentle touch carried out is to build up confidence and remove anxiety in the receiver. At first you will notice and pay attention to what is being done. The second time you will recognise the pattern of touch and the third time you will know what is going to happen and begin to relax. By carrying out these movements three times you will be lulled into a deep state of relaxation in a very short time.
The ‘M’ follows a very set pattern of movements which never change and is carried out at the same very light pressure. If you were to measure that pressure on a scale of 1 to 10, when 1 is no pressure and 10 is crushing pressure, the ‘M’ Technique pressure will always be at a pressure of 3. Conventional massage alters the pressure and the routine depending on the receiver.
The ‘M’ is very different to massage and research/ brain imaging shows it working on different areas of the brain, it being more akin to meditation therefore more relaxing.
Treatments can be given through thin clothing if preferred.
The ‘M’ is suitable for young and old and those with life limiting/altering conditions who may have been told massage and some complimentary treatments are not suitable for them. The list below is just some of those conditions it can help. Cancer, MS, Fibromyalgia, those suffering from pain, Motor Neurone, Epilepsy, Dementia, Autism, pregnant ladies. Also those who feel stressed, anxious, tense, unable to sleep or switch off.
The ‘M’ where possible is a full body treatment, although it can be split up into just hands/arms, legs and feet if this were felt to be more appropriate for the individual. Aromatherapy essential oils can also be used to compliment the treatment if felt appropriate. All treatments are carried out in a very professional, knowledgeable, individualised manner with caring, understanding and privacy and dignity being maintained at all times.
Instead of taking someone flowers and chocolates why not give them the gift of an hour of profound relaxation.
If you chose you can book a six week treatment package, which is recommended for specific issues. The treatment package can be paid for weekly.

“ ‘M'Technique is a painless and inexpensive intervention. Helen is a trained nurse skilled in delivering this course of treatment. Results can be immediately felt in terms of relaxation and improved sleep. After a couple of treatments there are benefits on energy, vitality and concentration. I can fully recommend this approach.”
“Recently I have been undertaking 'M' Technique therapy and have been for a couple of months now. I must add I am not normally one for therapies or treatments however, it has been massively helpful in relieving my stress. Helen is superb and is immaculate in her presentation and made me feel instantly at ease with the therapy. Her room of practice is highly relaxing and very professional, the bed used for the therapy is also relaxing as it is heated pre-therapy. Helen is very kind, helpful and knowledgeable, I would advise anyone to give this therapy a shot, as it certainly has relaxed and helped me get a better night’s sleep.”
“The 'M' Technique is fantastic for relaxation-simple, gentle, safe and effective. I've tried it myself.”
