EMMETT Technique is a safe and simple muscle release therapy developed by Ross Emmett.
It is an internationally recognised technique taught in over 26 countries world wide and is suitable for all ages.
EMMETT achieves results in the relief of pain and discomfort of chronic and acute conditions especially those related to muscle.
Some of the symptoms which have been relieved through EMMETT techniques:
- Neck and shoulder restriction
- Lymphatic congestion and breathing
- Fluid retention
- Migraines or cluster headaches
- Abdominal cramps and bowel discomfort
- Bladder issues
- Persistent heel (plantar fasciitis) and foot pain
- Headaches, dizziness and sinus congestion
- Back and hip discomfort
- Breathing difficulties
- Knee and ankle restrictions
- Discomfort during pregnancy
- Balance (a particular issue for the elderly)
EMMETT technique is not massage.
EMMETT uses a combination of direct finger pressure, switches, and gentle stretches to remind the body of what is “normal” or “balanced”.
For example if your core (psoas) is misaligned you may have difficulty with posture, digestion, balance, knee, back and/or other issues, including breathing. A few minutes seated with an Emmett Practitioner can result in “It’s amazing! I’m not wheezing!”
Persistent headaches can also be the result of muscle misbalance especially in the upper back and neck. Rebalancing those will provide immediate relief. Alas, a hangover, while it may induce muscle tension, also has a chemical imbalance which is best redressed with fluid intake.
