About the Event


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

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® Hand & Foot Course is to enable nurses and other health providers to use holistic touch on the hands & feet for comfort and care, and to promote healing in any setting utilizing this structured touch technique on the hands and/or feet of a patient, friend, or family member. This touch is suitable for frail and critically ill patients as well as for healthy individuals of all ages.


At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Discuss the difference between various touch modalities used in healthcare settings
  • Demonstrate proficiency in core touch at a pressure of three
  • Demonstrate 'M' Technique® on hand
  • Demonstrate 'M' Technique® on foot
