What is Emmett Therapy?
This is a treatment that aims to release tight muscles and tone loose muscles, it is excellent for getting quick results. Emmett is excellent to relieve pain and discomfort from muscle problems, improve flexibility of tight joints, activate the core muscles, increase physical stability and have a healthy lymph flow.
The treatment involves
– using holds on one or more points on the body
– Muscle ‘switches’ that send vibrations through the length of the muscles
– ‘Locking in’ when your body has been adjusted the new setting is locked in by repeating a movement described by your therapist 3 times. EG stand up, sit down.
You can wear some light soft clothing for some of the treatments or may be asked to be in underwear. Modesty is preserved by draping with sarongs/towels throughout. Body shaping type leggings/jeans are not appropriate as they are too resistant to work through.
How does Emmett therapy feel?
Most of the hold positions are done with a light touch and clients are surprised at the results when I am hardly touching them! For example a pressure point on the back releases the shoulder and your arm can suddenly move forward as you become more flexible.
You may get warm as blood flow increases, cold as the lymph system flows, have muscle twitches, tingles and the favourite of all – feel profoundly relaxed.
Does Emmett therapy have any side effects?
Typically improved sleep and a feeling of stability. You may feel tired after the session so for the first time it is best received on a day you can relax in the evening. Changes to the body can feel strange and your body may feel different until your brain catches up! A gently stroll after the session is an excellent way to assist your body in integrating the changes.
Occasionally people can feel achy after big muscle releases, similar to the after effects of a massage .
Changes to the bowel movements and increased urine flow also occur – drink plenty of water.
How long do the Emmett therapy changes last?
This depends on what is causing the problem! If your rigid shoulders are caused by sitting in a bad posture hunched over a desk and continue doing this then – the tightness will return. You will be advised on posture, seating and exercises to make changes more permanent.
Changes can be permanent.
How many Emmett treatments do I need?
This does depend on how much you want to ‘tune up’ your body and your presenting symptoms.
For someone in generally good health looking to stabilise their core muscles becoming physically and emotionally stable I suggest between one and three sessions. Once people have experienced the therapy they can become fascinated with the results and want to see what more it can do!
Someone with complex health needs, for example back pain, sciatic pain and sore shoulders who is unstable on their feet would benefit from one session, and improve greatly on 3 -6 sessions.
Ongoing monthly or 6 weekly sessions will keep you tuned up and functioning at your best. For health issues such as MS, fibromyalgia or other ongoing health conditions regular tune ups will help you keep going.
Does Emmett therapy work?
I think that it works very well. After a whiplash my neck had limited movement and a bone in my neck would shift causing pain that an osteopath would fix with several sessons. Since using Emmett I have not needed to have my neck bones adjusted again and have almost 180 degrees turn in my neck.
This therapy has only been taught since 2007 in Australia. It has quickly become very popular with therapists as they find EMMETT is a highly effective therapy.
EMMETT is now taught and available to clients in 35 countries. Founder Ross Emmett, now in his 70’s, is in demand all over the world teaching his therapy.
EMMETT is used to treat animals and humans. I am currently only Advanced Practitioner to treat humans in Norfolk.
Training. I have completed the levels Basic Practitioner, Full Practitioner (written paper 100%) and Advanced Practitioner (again 100%, includes as much training as the basic and full practitioner levels put together).
