In April 2015, I was struck down suddenly with an illness that left me unable to move. I was taken to three different hospitals before they identified my condition as Amyloidosis. Altogether I spent 8 months away from home being completely dependent on the nurses to help me in every way. I had three rounds of chemotherapy, because I was also diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.

During my stay in hospital, I also saw some neuro physiotherapists, who tried to make me able to move again. This was very difficult as I also suffered from incredibly debilitating pain. I was taking so many pain killing drugs that I felt in a permanent haze. Just before I came home the doctors had given me up to two years to live. They also said it was unlikely that I would walk again. All this negatively had resulted in me feeling very depressed and really in a bad place.

After I had been home about 4-5 months my pain and physical health had not improved. I had lost over 8 stone in weight which resulted in my not having the muscle power to do much. Then my partner told me about a Facebook friend he had who was doing alternative work with horses and dogs. He told me he had messaged him and said he would come and see me. I really objected, as I didn’t believe in mumbo jumbo practices .Thankfully he took no notice of my objections and that is why Tony Sherry came to see me.

Initially we talked and then Tony started putting his fingers on my legs. I couldn’t feel anything at all but I did notice a slightly warm feeling and my mind told me it was all imagination. Tony spent about 30 minutes doing this and to be quite honest I was glad when he stopped. I did enjoy the stories Tony relayed about the animals he had treated, but again to be honest I thought it a bit far fetched. When he had gone I told my partner that I didn’t want him coming to see me again. However, I (thankfully) was not listened to as Tony came to see me again a few days later. Once again he worked on my legs and I really did think it was a waste of time. During the next few hours I did think that the pain was easing a bit but I still didn’t think it was anything to do with the therapy. After a few more sessions I really noticed the pain had decreased, and I was able to move my legs and feet a little. I then began to think it may be the EMMETT that was helping. I still had no feeling in my lower body but I also did not experience the pain I had had in my legs.

For a few months Tony worked on my legs until the point came where I reduced my painkillers considerably. I was still seeing the neuro physiotherapist but was not getting on too well with the exercises. I also had no real feeling in my hands and I couldn’t hold a pen or knife and fork etc. I couldn’t raise my arms at all. One day I was telling Tony about the physiotherapists attempts to get my arms moving and he said he could help. He did one finger move on my shoulders, and it was like a miracle, I could raise my arms over my head without any pain at all. It was this action that had me totally convinced that EMMETT was a very revolutionary addition to the medical profession. As time went by the feelings in my hands improved and I was also able to stand up with the help of a walking frame. As I spent more time with Tony I found I was able to do more and more, eventually I started to take a step or two and I could start to feel my feet and legs a bit.

Tony with his moves helped my body to start to work. After about 6 months I stopped taking any painkillers, I stopped the chemotherapy as it made me so sick and giddy. My blood pressure had been very low and that began to get slightly better. I continued to have the therapy and we began to set goals such as standing with a stick then walking with the stick. I began to get stronger and put on weight, as soon as my muscles improved I was able to move better.

The EMMETT helped me in so many ways and I can now walk with the aid of sticks, and stand without any support.We are now working on my balance and getting my nerves to recognise different parts of my body. I think it is very important to remember that the doctors had told me I would not be able to walk again, but today I can walk, albeit with a stick, and use my arms and hands. The sensations are coming back in my feet and legs.

I really believe that EMMETT should be available to many more people and after the complete surprise and credulity my doctor had when he saw me stand and walk , I trust this treatment will be looked at by the NHS. EMMETT has given me a life and I know it can considerably help many others. I can only thank Tony and the Emmett program for all of this. I shudder to think what I may have been like if I hadn’t met Tony – Many many thanks.

In August last year I attended the EMMETT Short course which was the beginning of, what can only be described as, an amazing journey. I have to admit that first day I was somewhat suspicious that so much could be achieved by literally using two fingers. I was also nervous as I have severe arthritis in my hands and as the day went on I thought maybe this wasn’t the course for me. That’s where that daft idea was well and truly left behind.

Tony is a great tutor with a brilliant sense of humour and has the ability to think ‘outside the box if someone is struggling with a particular EMMETT move. As a result of this it’s possible for me to comfortably treat horses even with my sore hands.

My EMMETT journey didn’t stop with the taster course and I’ve just finished level 5. I’ve made great friends and learnt an amazing therapy. I’d recommend anyone to go and learn EMMETT you surely won’t regret it one bit!

I’ve had a sore knee for 10 years and tried all sorts to get rid of the pain and within 15 minutes of your treatment its gone and my knee feels like new with no pain. Thanks very much Tony.

Amazing! Treated and was instantly relaxed in my neck and shoulders… Went home slept best ever and felt great today. Everyone should try this as it truly works! Thank you Tony!

I’ve had chronic back pain since I was hit by a motorbike when I was 14 years old. No one has helped until I saw Tony today!! I can bend my back with no pain!!! Highly recommended. Thank you

Thank you so so much!!! I was unable to move my neck and shoulders after over doing it at the gym yesterday but now it’s like magic and I can move again! Thanks Tony!

I recently reviewed EMMETT for dogs with Tony, ( very amazing man!!). It’s a course that leaves you smiling inside, and gives such an insight to the graciousness of dogs. Tony’s passion is infectious, as is his laugh, the time and support he gives is constant, then top that with his unique teaching skill, can it get any better??!!

It does, because what you begin to notice is a completeness in the bond between owners and their beautiful dogs. The moves we learn give a greater understanding of aches and pains they may have and verifies the total trust they place with us. The process is mind blowing and heart warming, an experience that becomes such a special memory.

I can say, hand on heart, doing this course has changed me, dogs have taught me the true meaning of trust and forgiveness.

My gratitude to Ross and Tony is a tad huge, Thank you so much!

I met EMMETT Therapy when i was attending an event and i saw a demo and it interested me much with the fact it was not hard or manipulative so i asked Tony to come out to the sanctuary to treat one of the horses there. It was amazing. The differences in the horses and the literal ‘visible’ instant changes. I was so in love with it that i signed up for the short course. I do not have any qualifications in any therapies so everything was all new. The short course was mind blowing so I then signed up for the five levels to become a practitioner.

I was always blown away with each level. I practice a lot on the sanctuary horses and watch them change and calm and grow in themselves. EMMETT is a truly wonderful gentle  therapy that horses and people truly love. Its not just about the physical it helps the mental side of things as well. I have personally seen horses who are so nervy and screwed up mentally because of people just calm and relax and move on in life. I cannot recommend EMMETT therapy enough. It is literally mind blowing!

I fell from my horse 6 months ago & broke my collarbone. I had it plated & developed frozen shoulder. When I met Tony I had a stiff painful neck & had lost all strength in my hand. One session of EMMETT & I could grip & turn my neck easily without pain. Absolutely amazing recommend 100%.

I can’t believe how fast my headache disappeared. Gone in seconds. Thank you Mr voodoo fingers.

Tony, I just want to say a massive thank you. Since reviewing (such a brilliant time) I have felt more confident.

I continue to volunteer and this week was asked to treat a stray. A tiny little thing, with minimal fur because of flea infestation, scratch marks all over her skin and indentations on her face where her mouth had been strapped tightly shut.  She cowered as I removed her lead, but with time allowed me to touch her and do a couple of moves. She looked, came over, gave me a lick and settled on my lap.

Obviously I was in tears, touched so greatly by her trust and the enormity of that which is EMMETT.

I hope I haven’t waffled on, but you are a legend and without you’re teaching I doubt I would have had that moment, and I’m thinking Battersea dogs home needs an en masses EMMETT visit!! Heartfelt thank you

After a few nudges from the Universe, I made contact with Tony for further information on EMMETT 4 horses course . In no time at all had enrolled in the short taster day and very soon after started on the full Practitioner for horses course.

Not coming from a therapist back ground I was more than a little concerned I would be out of my depth from the lack of technical terms and names of the muscle groups . Well, Tony soon put my worries into a box never to see the light of day again! He simply explained that to treat horses with EMMETT they did not matter, but that we should use our eyes and inner voice to read the ‘book’ in front of us. Being able to treat horses with EMMETT therapy is such a joyful experience.

Tony’s infectious enthusiasm, entwined with his honest memories and feelings of his own journey with EMMETT resonated constant reassurance in all of us on the course. Not wanting this experience to end and enjoying treating horses so much I have now found myself enrolled on to a human course.

I have noticed a great difference in myself which is leading to a long overdue career change. I have more confidence now which is down to Tony giving me the ‘tool’ to do it with, and that is ‘self belief’.

Thank you Tony, and I can’t wait to continue with my EMMETT learning.

Last June, my old Great Dane Jake was diagnosed with degenerative spinal disease and I was told that he wouldn’t last more than 3 months, and nothing more could be done for him. Jake was losing his confidence and was becoming very depressed.

This is where Tony entered our lives. Every 2-4 weeks he comes to see Jake and works on him with his extremely kind and gentle manner. Fast forward to March 2016 and Jake is still going strong. He is now a happy and confident boy and I honestly believe that this is all thanks to Tony and his dedicated work and I am so very grateful. Jake loves having his time with Tony and often trots off into the garden after his treatment like a pup.

Tony has also worked wonders with myself, my family and friends and has corrected old injuries and problem aches and pains with often just one treatment. Tony is someone that we all need in our lives and I would highly recommend him.

Tony was with us today doing a demonstration not only on me, but also on two of the horses I train (one is my own). I’m still struggling to rationalise what I felt and saw, but it certainly seems to be a powerful technique.

Personally, my back pain was relieved, but I also felt my centre of gravity shift (even though I tried to fight it, just because I am a born sceptic!). The horses both relaxed significantly during the demonstration. One has had a dipped back for around nine years having had a foal as a late 3yo. During the assessment and treatment I saw her back lift maybe by an inch (possibly a little more) and saw her abdominal muscles tighten and tone. I then watched my own horse (you met her at Tessa’s) relax her neck and her temperament change. My mare is never affectionate, but after her treatment she has been unusually affectionate. As you can probably tell, I am still a little in shock!

I coached one of the pairs that you treated today. I was slightly amazed to see that they were hugely improved! Much straighter (both horse and rider) and much more able to ride effectively. One of the other horses that you treated was described by it’s rider as much looser and more relaxed. Much freer in canter and generally a happier animal.
