Emmett Technique – The Chameleon Approach to Body Therapy
The Emmett Technique is a unique body therapy that was created by Ross Emmett. The Emmett Technique is an excellent modality and form of treatment that is safe, gentle and quite simple to apply, involving the application of light finger pressure at specific points.
How does Emmett work?
The Emmett Technique is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissues of the body to be able to relieve tension and pain, ease discomfort, and improve range of motion, leading to an improved healthy life. The therapist utilises a relatively light touch to bring about change and reset the muscles being worked on, either holding one or two points at the same time or “switching” across muscle or tendon fibres.
These gentle touches can enable a gentle release for many common conditions. The results can be dramatic and profound even for first time clients. Fast and accurate assessments of imbalances in the body are an integral feature of Emmett Therapy. Emmett Therapy is safe and effective to practice on any individual, from pregnant women, to newborn children and to the elderly.
The pressure required is not heavy or painful. “No pain no gain” has NO place in the Emmett’s therapist’s approach.
Emmett Therapy is an extremely effective stand alone therapy and is a truly complementary therapy that combines easily with a range of different modalities, for example, Chiropractic, Massage, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Access Bars & Body Processes etc.
What can be expected in an Emmett Therapy session?
An Emmett Therapy session is conducted with the client fully clothed, however if required, pieces of clothing may need to be removed or loosened. Treatment is conducted whilst the client is seated, standing or lying on a table. Sessions can last anywhere from 10 – 30 minutes if the Emmett Technique is used alone – longer if combined with another modality.
