Emmett Technique

Emmett Technique

Emmett technique is The Chameleon Approach to the Body. 

The Emmett Technique is a unique body therapy created by Ross Emmett.

How does it work? The EMMETT Technique is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissue of the body, and the therapist may help relieve tensions resulting in feelings of improved comfort within the body.

It may be enjoyed by people of all ages, from babies to the elderly. Many people find they feel more at ease within their body and emotional well-being is enhanced.

The relaxing nature of the technique results in people reporting typical responses such as:
1) improved comfort and ease within the area treated such as back, abdomen, hips, legs, knees, ankles, feet, shoulders, arm, hand and neck
2) more restful sleep
3) enhanced mood
4) a sense of lightness within their body.

I came across this therapy in 2011 and frankly was blown away by it. I had attended an Emm-tech course where I learned a move which enabled me to recover from ankle discomfort which had been with me for 4 years. Physiotherapy, consultants and traditional exercises had not resolved this condition but Emmett did.

I decided to train to become a practitioner and since then I continue to be amazed at the results that can be achieved. Many of my clients can attest to the efficacy of this treatment. Sometimes one session is enough, sometimes several sessions are needed (see Therapy treatments for more information). I can provide references as necessary. I am also an EMM-Tech tutor and a UK instructor for the practitioner courses.

My Emmett therapy also complements my Pilates/personal training clients plus my post natal programme for helping to heal a diastasis recti (tummy separation). There are specific healing exercises to help with this condition.

The Emm-Tech short courses are suitable for anyone and everyone. These short courses provide you with 11 releases to assist common restrictions/discomfort/ lack of flexibility/movement from neck to toe. You can learn these to use on yourself and to treat friends and family. Consider it as first aid to the body. (Click here for more EMM-Tech course information)

I have some amazing referrals both from clients and participants from previous courses if you want to know more. Here is one.

“love the way I feel after the treatment: very relaxed, balanced, straighter, taller (ha!), even my neck feels longer! Who knows, I might have grown so many thanks again! ”

I love hearing from  clients about how the EMMETT Technique has improved their quality of life, however, I wish to stress that the technique DOES NOT treat illnesses, diseases, syndromes or medical conditions. It may assist symptoms of discomfort and restriction, and help body movement.  Any client stories/testimonials quoted in my website are in their own words and are published with their permission. Each individual is unique and the response they experienced with the technique may not be representative of the population as a whole.
