What is Emmett?
Emmett is a safe, gentle muscle release therapy that is used to address pain and discomfort and improve movement restriction in areas such as the knees and hips as well as the neck, shoulders and back.
The technique involves gentle precssure at specific points which activate the release of long held muscle restrictions and encourage the body to self correct.
It is a simple but powerful technique and the relief it provides is so immediate that you can usually feel results by the end of your appointment.
Emmett provides natural pain relief and can help problems in the back, neck, shoulder, hip and knee discomfort and imrove body symmetry, balance and alignement.
The technique, founded by Ross Emmett, arrived in the UK from Australia in 2007 and so is relatively unknown, however its effectiveness is rapidly gaining respect amongst healthcare professionals such as Doctors, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, as well as Complementary Therapists.
What happens during a treatment?
Your treatment can take place with you sitting, standing or lying down according to your requirements and comfort level and I can treat either directly on the skin or through light clothing.
During our appointment I assess which areas of your body are affected and using a combination of light finger pressure and 'switches' at specific points within muscles, cause them to immediately release and relax which in turn increases your range of motion ie. you feel looser!
Most clients usually feel changes even before the end of the first appointment.
Please note that this technique may be used as a stand alone therapy or incorporated within any Bowen or massage treatment.
