    Default slightly to either side

    "It is best to apply technique to a broad portion of the relevant reflex area. To work the spine reflex area, for example, make a series of passes to one side of the reflex area, followed by one down the center, and then one slightly to either side."

    What does "slightly to either side" mean?

    Presumably "to either side of the reflex area", in this case the spine.

    I'm still confused. Is it saying that firstly you apply the technique to one side, and then to either side? Why not both sides if a broad area should be covered?

    Can't answer that. The text quoted is a bit obscure. Does the following text make it any clearer?
