Introducing Emmett Technique
Emmett Technique is a safe & simple muscle release therapy developed by Remedial Therapist Ross Emmett.It is used to address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and can restore a positive emotional state.”
Emmett Technique is really best experienced or seen, so here’s a quick demonstration of stability from one of Ross Emmett‘s talks..
Emmett Technique, named after its creator Ross Emmett, is really best experienced or seen, we’re planning on adding some videos to the site asap, in the meantime we’ll try to give you an idea of Emmett
- What is Emmett Technique?
Emmett Technique is a light pressure or a switching movement with fingers (or thumbs) at particular points on the body, or in sequences, that enables the physical release of muscles or muscle groups. The Emmett touch seems to draw the body’s awareness to areas and encourage the body to reevaluate and recalibrate it’s own state – the usual result is instant release of tension – decreasing pain as well as improving movement.
- How many sessions?
With the instant response of Emmett Technique you may only need a single release or several, depending upon the body’s response to the previous releases; you may also find a single session sufficient for longer term relief or you may consider regular sessions if your lifestyle or habits cause recurrence or aggravation of tension & pain over time.
- Why use Emmett?
Emmett Technique used on its own can have great results, even in sessions of a few minutes; it’s great as a first-aid tool to try to discourage prolonged issues & pain getting locked in as the body tries to rebalance & repair itself. Ross evolved Emmett Technique to ‘fix clients first time’ and all releases he teaches have been extensively proven by his senior instructors. Their experience also demonstrates that Emmett also works very well with other major complementary therapies, we combine it with Tom Bowen therapy (as taught by Emmett Therapies) though it is the foundation of our therapy.
- Emmett is for everyone! you can learn it too
Emmett Technique is described as ‘the chameleon approach to the body’ because of this versatility and adaptability, which explains why it’s becoming a popular addition to many therapist and medical professional’s toolkits, as well as being learnt (on the EMM-Tech Course) by everybody to help care for their families & friends.Fast, accurate assessment of imbalances in your body are an integral feature of Emmett Technique, which addresses tissues that may include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue (fascia), as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system.
- Emmett Technique is also very useful if you are in any kind of intense training regime, or heavy physical work, because the results are almost always improved by working & using the released areas. Unlike some therapies, there is usually no period where the recipient has to take it easy when Emmett is used on its own (unless they want to of course)
- Many people find the releases hold and may not need another Emmett session unless or until something ‘goes out’ again!
