The EMMETT Technique

The EMMETT technique uses light finger pressure at specific points to relieve muscle pain and discomfort, increase flexibility and improve function and balance.


What is the EMMETT Technique?

The EMMETT technique is a unique body therapy created by Ross Emmett. It is a technique which has been shown to ease pain and discomfort, increase movement and improve quality of life.

How does it work?

The EMMETT Technique involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points on the body. In a similar way to the workings of a touch-screen the body responds to this light touch by changing muscle tension and action.

What should I expect?

You will be asked some questions about your general health and the reason for your visit. Treatments may be done while you are fully clothed, although some garments may need to be removed or loosened. Please wear soft exercise clothing with no buttons or zips, no denim. Treatment times vary according to your needs on the day. While people’s experiences vary, positive changes to pain, posture, range of movement is often instantaneous and will continue to change over the next few days.

The EMMETT technique is a complete therapy on its own but Teresa may use it in combination with the other therapies she practises, so you can benefit from the best treatment.
