Emmett Technique – The Chameleon Approach to Body Therapy

What is the Emmett Technique?

The Emmett Technique is a safe, simple to apply body therapy that was created by Ross Emmett. Emmett Therapy acts as a first aid to release muscle related issues using the application of light touch at specific points.

About the Emmett Points:

Unique, micro points, that may have been activated through overuse, stress or trauma. They can cause the surrounding muscles to tighten causing pain and restricting movement. Emmett points are known to reset this muscle action returning the muscle memory to a more harmonious state.

These unique points are located throughout the body and specific light pressure points or moves allow the brain the opportunity to re-check and recalibrate the muscle groups if necessary.

How does it work?

The principles of the technique are based on light touch at specific points to create change in selected muscle groups by reactivating the muscle memory. The application of the technique 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, and more.

We invite you to try our ‘EMMETT Rescue/recovery Sequence’ 

Demonstrated By: Ross Emmett – Founder & Developer of The EMMETT Technique. Simply visit our training website.

This course is free www.emmett-technique.thinkific.com

Ross Emmett has very generously offered the EMMETT Technique ‘Recovery move’ to be freely available to the world. The Recovery move is used to assist people when they are stressed, anxious or breathless. It’s easy to learn and simple to apply: to oneself, or to others. As is typical of EMMETT moves, they are light, and non-invasive.

The Rescue/Recovery sequence is performed fully clothed.
This move is generally taught to students in Module 3 in EMMETT training, however Ross believes that during this unprecedented Covid time, many people may benefit from knowing this move. The EMMETT Technique is a unique form of body therapy. It involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points, referred to as “EMMETT points”.

The pressure required to stimulate the EMMETT points does not need to be firm or painful.

EMMETT Therapy is not intended to substitute any medical advice or treatment.
