In 2018 I qualified as an EMMETT Technique practitioner.
The EMMETT Technique is a unique body therapy created by Ross Emmett, in Australia, that uses light finger pressure at specific places on the body. It may be enjoyed by people of all ages, from babies to the elderly.
How does it work?
It is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissue of the body, and that the therapy may help relieve tensions resulting in feeling of improved comfort.
Symptoms that may be assisted:
The relaxing nature of the technique results in people reporting typical responses such as:
- Improved comfort and ease within the area treated such as back, abdomen, hips, legs, knees, ankles feet, shoulders, arms, hands and neck
- More restful sleep
- Enhanced mood
- A sense of lightness within the body
What should you expect?
You may be asked some questions about your general heath and the reason for your visit. Treatments may be done while you are fully clothed although some garments may need to be removed or loosened. While individual experiences may vary, relief is often instantaneous.
The EMMETT Technique is a complete therapy on its own but has the ability to work in combination with other techniques.
I offer it as a 30 minute standalone appointment, or alongside a longer massage, reiki or reflexology appointment. Please book the time you require for Emmett or Massage.
My clients feedback: pain has eased, that knees are less stiff, that they can stride longer during a run, or that they have improved range of neck movement
I have been so blown away with EMMETT Technique that I am now training to be an Emmtech Tutor, and hope to run 1 day introductory Emmtech workshops later in 2019 so that individuals may use Emmett moves at home on their friends and family.
Ross Emmett originally used his technique on animals such as horses and dogs, and you can still attend course on Emmett for Horse or Emmett for Dogs, here in the UK. See the UK website for more details
