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.

Symptoms that may be assisted

Back and hip pain

Neck and shoulder restrictions and discomfort

Knee and ankle restrictions

Persistent heel and foot pain

Lymphatic and sinus congestion

Migraines and headaches

Breathing restrictions

Abdominal cramps and bowel discomfort

Discomfort during pregnancy

Fluid retention

And much, much more!!!

What should you expect?

You may 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. Treatment times may vary according to your practitioner. While individual experiences may vary, relief is often instantaneous.

The EMMETT Technique is a complete therapy on its own but has the ability to work in combination with other skills your EMMETT practitioner may have.

For several weeks I had been suffering from an aching upper arm & lower back. A result, I suspect, from some regular lifting I had been involved with at work.

After a session of the Emmett Technique with Enrica, I experienced the following:

1. During the treatment I began to feel changes take place in the affected areas, which certainly felt like improvement/change.

2. The aching sensation in my upper arm faded and when the treatment had finished the discomfort had definitely improved. It just felt a bit sore, and I could now lift my arm up above my head much easier than before treatment. 

3. My shoulders felt less stiff and so much easier to jiggle about!

4. When Enrica asked how my lower back was feeling, I suddenly realised that I could not detect any aches at all in that area! I felt so relieved.

I would definitely recommend trying the Emmett Technique. Thank you Enrica.

As a Bowen Technique therapist myself, I was very intrigued by the Emmett Technique, which was created by Ross Emmett, a Technique based on light touch to induce relaxation.

Today I had a chance to try it, with Enrica.

My upper back, shoulders and neck are solid and constantly tight. But after this very gentle treatment all the muscles in these areas were much softer and the range of movement in my neck greatly improved. Enrica was just lightly touching specific areas but I immediately felt deeply relaxed and very sleepy. I could feel those hard muscles start to almost melt off the bones! Afterwards I felt deeply relaxed not only physically, but mentally and emotionally too.

I can highly recommend not only Emmett, but Enrica too: a lovely lady with healing hands!

I have been going to Enrica since April, hoping to find some relief from chronic anxiety and insomnia.   I had read up about the Bowen and Emmet therapies and thought I would give them a try.  My first appointment was surprisingly pleasant, I found the experience really relaxing and could hardly believe it would do any good as it was SO gentle, it seems as if there is very little going on, but wow was I wrong!   When I got home I was drowsy and just had to have a little nap. Three hours later I woke up worried I would not sleep that night.   Wrong again, I went to bed at the usual time and slept right through not waking  at 5.30 am and staying awake until getting up time, like I normally do.   I can honestly say I now sleep really well and if I do wake up in the early hours I go straight back to sleep again. I think I have had about 5 sessions now and I am still sleeping wonderfully. Just recently I  noticed that I am not feeling so anxious and am keeping calm even in quite stressful situations.   I am not quite there yet, but my husband has commented that I am coping much better than I used to, and I know it  is definitely much improved, as I feel much more relaxed in general.   Enrica is a lovely person and very pleasant company,  she is completely dedicated to her clients and passionate about what she does.   I wholeheartedly recommend her and her amazing skills.
