What is the EMMETT Technique?
- A safe and simple muscle release therapy developed by Remedial Therapist Ross Emmett
- Useful to address pain and discomfort and improve movement restrictions
- A method that uses light finger pressure at specific locations to initiate the gentle release of tension in many problem areas such as neck, shoulder and back
- A technique where results are usually immediate
- Non-invasive and involves no drugs, massage oils, manipulations or high velocity thrusts
What Does An EMMETT Treatment Involve?
Clients can be treated seated, standing or lying down.
It can be a standalone treatment or combined with other techniques.
The treatment can be applied directly to the skin or done through clothing.
Sessions can last anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes if the EMMETT Technique is used alone – longer if combined with a relaxing massage or other modality.
How Does It Work?
It is suggested that the EMMETT Technique may interact with the body as described in the science of Critical Point Analysis which identifies that…
“In any highly complex system there is a specific, critical point at which the smallest input will result in the greatest change”
For example a light touch on a small cog can halt the largest engine.
The EMMETT Technique Therapist can be compared to a body electrician who has the knowledge to locate these critical points and re-set them with the correct stimulation.
The stimulation is registered by the receiver’s nervous system and their brain responds by sending new instructions back to affect the physical state of the localised area.
The result is often instantaneous physical change.
Special language skills are incorporated to reinforce and anchor the positive physical changes greatly enhancing the outcome.
