About the Event

(Please note: Start/End Time may be adjusted depending upon the location/time zone of registered attendees.)

This 2-day virtual instruction (online) course covers the Full Body 'M' Technique®.  In keeping with the original format of the in-person classes, the 'M' Technique® Full Body Practitioner Course will utilize Zoom classroom sessions. To maintain privacy and confidentiality, paid attendees will be provided with the Zoom meeting ID and password. Registration is open to the United States and Canadian residents (other countries with prior approval from the instructor). Higher shipping charges occur to students located outside the contiguous United States. PLEASE send an email to the instructor at prior to registering and paying for the class. Class size is limited to 8 class attendees. All interactive (Zoom) sessions will be listed in Eastern Time Zone. 

Since this class is mainly a "hands-on" course, you will need a "receiver" person to practice your techniques on. We understand this is a huge commitment on the part of the receiver. Therefore, for the 2-day class, we do allow you to have 2 different receiver persons throughout the 2 days if necessary. 


The 'M' Technique® was developed by Jane Buckle, Ph. D., R.N., as a means of holistic communication. This structured system of touch is suitable when massage is inappropriate because the receiver is very fragile/critically ill, or when the giver is not trained in massage. 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 rest and relaxation

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


The learner outcome of the 'M' Technique® Practitioner 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 head, face, hands, feet, legs, back of legs, arms, stomach, back, shoulders, and neck of a patient, client, friend, or family member. This touch is suitable for frail and critically ill patients as well as for healthy individuals of all ages. 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, especially the fragile.
