Therapy of the Month
The EMMETT Technique
a unique form of body therapy!
The EMMETT Technique has been devised by an Australian Ross Emmett and involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points, referred to as “Emmett points”.
The points are not the same as traditional trigger points, acupressure points or any other points described in any other therapy.
The pressure required to stimulate the EMMETT points does not need to be firm or painful. “No pain no gain” has no place in EMMETT Technique philosophy.
The EMMETT Therapist is skilled in the art of applying:
- the right amount of pressure
- in the right direction
- for the right amount of time
The light pressure touch can be applied up to 3 times and allows the body to find its own point of reaction:
- the first allows the body to assess and understand that the holding point is a bit tender,
- the second is the correction
- the third allows the therapist to assess what change has taken place.
Although often combined with other techniques, the EMMETT Technique is an efficient and effective therapy on its own.
What does an EMMETT treatment involve?
Clients can be treated seated, standing or lying down.
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 The EMMETT Technique work?
Ross Emmett describes the EMMETT Technique as ‘The skin which is our touch screen has the power to influence the brain to create a change within the motor mechanics of the muscles.’
The EMMETT Technique Therapist can be compared to a body electrician who has the knowledge to locate critical points on the body 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 localized area.
The result is often instantaneous physical change.
