In an exciting new development, in conjunction with Ross Emmett and EMMETT Therapies HQ in Australia, a new course has been launched for people in the foot care world – this includes Reflexologists, Chiropodists, Podiatrists and Foot Health Practitioners.
The 14 hour practical, hands-on training will start with the 8 hour EMM-Tech course, which involves learning the basic principles of EMMETT Technique and 10 procedures to help the whole body – from feet to head as listed above. This is great for self care and is considered a muscle “first-aid” suitable for everyone. The first day will be open to students who only wish to do this part of the course and in that case the cost to them will be £110.
The second day will be a set of 6 more moves taken from the practitioner and advanced course, but focussed specifically on helping the lower leg and feet. This part of the course will cost an additional £100.
For those wanting to complete the full 14 hours i.e. the general EMM-Tech plus the foot care day, the full cost will be £210.
Those who have previously completed EMM-Tech may repeat the general day for half price – and this is recommended, especially if there is a long time since it was completed previously. We would want everyone to be up to speed to start the Foot Care day, as we will be focussing on the foot moves.
This is a fantastic way to learn more about what EMMETT can do in your specialist field. We consider it an in-between step from the Introductory course to the Practitioner course.
The first course was held in Penybanc, near Ammanford, Carmarthenshire in June, with other courses held in the Vale of Glamorgan and Milton Keynes. The tutors were Judith Johnson and Carol Fisher. Carol is a very experienced reflexologist as well as being a Certified Advanced EMMETT Practitioner and EMM-Tech Tutor. Judith has been practising EMMETT for 13 years, is a Certified Advanced EMMETT Practitioner as well as an EMMETT Practitioner Course Instructor both here in the UK and Internationally.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this course suitable for? Pre-requisite: EMM-Tech Short Course or at least Modules 1&2 of the Practitioner Course. This course is ideally suited for exercise professionals (Yoga Instructors, Pilates Instructors, Personal Trainers, Coaches etc.) interested in learning some EMMETT releases to combine with their exercise disciplines. These moves can be used with one-to-0ne clients or within a class setting.
What result can I expect?: The results from these moves are usually immediate – you will be able to see and feel the changes for yourself and after a short demonstration and practise you will be able to achieve the same kind of results for yourself and others.
How is the course assessed?
EMM-Tech is not an assessed course however students are supervised during practice sessions and extra assistance is offered where required, so all become confident to perform the moves. A certificate of attendance is awarded at the end of the 8 hour course.
Can I use the training days as Continued Professional Development (CPD)?
This will depend on which professional body you have membership of. If you contact your own association and enquire whether you will be allowed to claim CPD. EMMETT Therapies is happy to help by providing them with information about the course for them to evaluate.
The current cost for each participant for this additional 8 hour course is £110 in the UK. Payment is required on booking a place on a course. This is the early bird fee and must be paid at least 3 weeks before the course. For further details on terms and conditions please see the emmett-uk.co.uk website.
