What is EMMETT Technique?

The EMMETT Technique is a unique body therapy created by Ross Emmett  – a very experienced practitioner based in Queensland, Australia.

The technique uses the application of light pressure at specific points and in sequences that enable muscle groups to gently release and relax.

EMMETT can be used as a stand-alone treatment and can also be integrated and combined with a range of other therapies, enhancing the end result.

Advertising Standards Agency regulations state that all therapists have to abide by their rules and they advise us that the following wording is acceptable to them :

“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:

  • improved comfort and ease within the area treated such as back, abdomen, hips, legs, knees, ankles, feet, shoulders, arm, hand and neck
  • more restful sleep 
  • enhanced mood
  • a sense of lightness within their body”

The EMMETT Technique is not intended to replace or substitute any medical advice or treatment. It is recommended that you consult your General Practitioner about any health concerns.

The use of this therapy will be guided by the specific needs of the individual client, through assessment and observation.

Treatments are usually carried out fully clothed, although tight clothing may have to be loosened. Light, loose clothing is recommended.
