What is Emmett Technique?
The EMMETT Technique is a unique form of body relaxation therapy, involving the application of light finger pressure at specific points. It is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissues of the body and that the therapist may thereby help relieve feelings of tension. Many people find they feel more at ease within their body and their emotional well-being is enhanced. The result is often instantaneous feelings of greater comfort.
EMMETT is truly a complementary therapy. It may be applied in isolation but it also combines easily with all other bodywork and exercise specialities such as massage, physiotherapy, yoga or pilates.
What can I expect in a treatment?
People can be treated while sitting, standing or lying down. The treatment can be applied directly to the skin or through clothing. Sessions can last anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes if the EMMETT Technique is used alone – longer if combined with a relaxing massage or other modality.
