WHAT IS IT?

The EMMETT Technique is an established form of non-invasive body therapy that involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points of the body (known as as ‘EMMETT points’) to release muscle tension, effectively alleviate discomfort and improve restricted movement.

The points are not the same as trigger or acupressure points and are unique to the EMMETT technique.

The degree of pressure required to stimulate the EMMETT points is very light and there is no use of firm or uncomfortable manipulation, therefore the treatment is completely gentle and painless. “No pain no gain” certainly does not feature in the EMMETT Technique ethos.

Therapy is tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual, the only common ground between clients is the successful delivery of an improvement in their well-being.

The EMMETT Technique is practised in over 40 Countries and is used on people and animals with equally successful results.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The best analogy to use is comparing an EMMETT Technique Therapist with an electrician who has the knowledge to locate the critical points which ‘power’ the body and can re-set them with the correct stimulation.

The stimulation is registered by the receiver’s nervous system and the brain reacts by sending new instructions back to alter the physical state of the localised area.

The way the therapy works is similar to the workings of a touch-screen computer (a light touch and the programme opens). By using this specific touch, the body responds by communicating with the muscle memory and this affects a change in muscle tension and action resulting in a fast relief of muscular discomfort.

The result is often instantaneous. People report a reduction in the discomfort they have been experiencing (often this is discomfort that they have been suffering for many years) and an enhanced range of movement – which ultimately results in an improved sense of well-being.

For People

ECH THERAPIES FOR PEOPLE 

People suffering with a range of ailments can be successfully treated with EMMETT therapy which involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points, to release the tension in muscles that causes discomfort. These points are unique to EMMETT and are not the same as traditional trigger or acupressure points. The therapy is completely painless, since it involves a gentle touch rather than a firm manipulation. It can be applied directly to the skin or through clothing and clients can be seated, standing or lying down. A session can last anywhere between 10 to 45 minutes, depending on the individual and how fast the body responds. Treatment can be in the comfort of your own home or even at the office!

For Animals & Owners

ECH THERAPIES FOR ANIMALS

Horses and dogs are unable to communicate their discomfort verbally, so it is only by exhibiting their compromised physical (and sometimes emotional) state that it will become apparent that there is a problem. Both horses and dogs will be constrained in their movement and therefore their performance, if their muscles are tight and restricted or if they are in discomfort. Animals tend to compensate to relieve pressure on the affected area and if left untreated can lead to problems developing in other areas of the body.

Animal conditions that be successfully treated using EMMETT therapy include:

Injuries from sport or accidents:

Unbalanced gait/stance
Lead/harness strain
Lower back distress
Inhibited movement
Poor performance
Behaviour changes
Stiffness/decreased suppleness
Unbalanced head carriage
Saddle soreness/girthing issues
Tension in back and lumbar area
Restricted forward movement
Standing short or uneven
Stiff through the legs/dragging feet
Poor performance/behaviour
Stiffness/decreased suppleness

Owners who have experienced the power of EMMETT at work regularly report a more relaxed, supple animal that demonstrates an enhanced willingness to work following the removal of obstacles hindering their comfort. Some even go as far as to say that the animal seems to have undergone a personality transplant because they are so much happier – as humans we recognise how pain can distort our daily lives and without the benefit of verbal communication, the only way animals can express this discomfort is through behaviour.

As much as EMMETT can benefit a horse, if the rider is experiencing areas of tension or restriction it means that horse and rider are not in harmony, so the problems will continue. There is a clear relationship between supple horses who move freely and in balance, and their riders who are flexible, and have good core strength. Conversely riders with physical issues of their own may restrict the horse’s movement or put muscles under strain. As a result, when we visit a horse we may often end up treating the rider too!

How good would it be if we taught you how to assess your horse or dog yourself to identify any restrictions and even more important how to easily release that restriction – even on the day of an important competition…

Corporate Packages

CORPORATE PACKAGES

In addition to offering EMMETT therapy via an individual one-to-one consultation, it is also possible to arrange for an EMMETT therapist to visit a company’s offices and provide a number of employees with access to this revolutionary complementary therapy.

The benefits of offering a therapy which will deliver relief from muscular discomfort are widespread:

  • Pain-free employees are likely to be happier, more mobile and ultimately, more productive
  • Various health problems (see earlier list of the different conditions which EMMETT therapy can help with) which employees may be experiencing can lead to frequent / extended periods of time off work. If the discomfort associated with these conditions can be alleviated by an EMMETT therapist, both the employee and the company benefits
  • The provision of this type of therapy to employees underpins the company’s commitment to employee health and well-being, creating a positive working environment
  • Because there is no recovery period required after a consultation, clients can return to their desks immediately, representing minimum disruption to the working day
  • Compared to other ‘group therapy’ sessions, a corporate EMMETT therapy session is competitively priced
  • Since the therapy can be delivered standing, sitting or lying down, while the client remains fully clothed, there is no need for staff members to feel embarrassed / uncomfortable whilst being treated in front of their colleagues
