This 4-hour course covers the Hand & Foot ‘M’ Technique®.

The course is suitable for nurses and healthcare providers, massage therapists, volunteers, patient ambassadors, patient advocates, caregivers, or relatives wanting to de-stress or provide comfort to a loved one.

The 'M' Technique® was developed by Jane Buckle, Ph. D., R.N., as a means of holistic communication. The 'M' Technique® works on the skin receptor sites that send signals to the brain to RELAX. This technique is intended to enable the giver to quickly provide physical comfort and allows the receiver to relax almost immediately. The 'M' Technique® is designed to produce a rapid relaxation response in the shortest period of time, in the simplest, least invasive method.

There are several published clinical trials, as well as over 300 individual case studies which support the 'M' Technique® has:

  • reduced stress and anxiety
  • reduced the perception of chronic pain
  • reduced agitation
  • promoted relaxation

in critically ill, chronically ill, actively dying, and healthy individuals of all ages.


The learner outcome of the 'M' Technique® Hand & Foot Course is to enable nurses, massage therapists, and other health providers to use holistic touch for comfort and care, and to promote healing in any setting utilizing this structured touch technique on the hands and feet of a patient, client, friend, or family member. The 'M' Technique® is a clinical, peer-reviewed, evidence-based registered method of gentle, structured touch that is safe and appropriate for anyone of all ages and conditions.
