The EMMETT technique is a safe and simple muscle release therapy developed by Remedial Therapist Ross Emmett. It is used for pain and discomfort and improves movement restrictions.
Ross is a dynamic and unique practitioner. He developed the EMMETT Technique during his early years having been inspired by a diverse mix of life experiences, jobs and hobbies, including a passion for animals. He has continued to develop and evolve the technique up until the present day.
He is a qualified instructor of Therapeutic Massage since 1983 and was a senior instructor of Bowen Therapy for 8 years.
The technique Ross developed is widely recognised as a gentle, safe and simple to apply muscle release therapy based on an understanding of the body’s response to light touch.
Ross has a rare and special gift which allows him to see each client’s needs at that moment, to know what to do and to adapt accordingly, so the treatment is tailored to each individual client. This ‘Chameleon Approach’ has long been the major success in the EMMETT Technique and produces outstanding results time and time again.
Body in Balance explains the Emmett Technique which was new to the UK in 2007, this bodywork therapy is designed to offer fast relief from pain and discomfort. Beneficial effects are commonly noticed before the end of the first treatment.
The therapist uses a combination of gentle switches and light finger pressure at specific locations to initiate to release muscle tension in many problem areas such as neck, shoulder and back. The treatment is usually performed over light clothing and generally takes between 30 and 50 minutes.
Practitioners are trained in assessment skills and how to tailor treatments precisely to their client’s individual needs. They are also trained in assisting the client to recognise and enhance the changes achieved. All facets of this effective and complete treatment result in the successful outcome of the work, creating lasting changes for the client.
A technique where results they say, ‘are usually immediate’. Before leaving the clinic most clients notice dramatic changes in flexibility, balance, pain levels, ranges of movement, breathing and other functions depending upon the areas worked.
It’s non-invasive and involves no drugs, massage oils, manipulations or high-velocity thrusts. The Emmett Technique can be used alone or alongside any other bodywork therapy to enhance its performance. For this reason, it is one of the most desirable and versatile treatments available, enhancing any therapist’s practice.
EMMETT is truly a complementary therapy. It may be applied in isolation but it also combines easily with all other bodywork and exercise specialities such as massage, chiropractic, physiotherapy, Bowen therapy, craniosacral therapy, yoga, Pilates and personal training as some typical examples.
