THE EMMETT TECHNIQUE
The Emmett Technique uses a combination of direct pressure and gentle switches applied to specific muscle groups. Emmett maybe helpful to support pain levels, overall posture and range of movement. Practitioners are trained in assessment skills and how to use the best combination of moves to support each person. Additionally, practitioners are taught special language skills in order to assist the client to recognise and enhance the changes so achieved and this adds to the successful outcome of the work.
Emmett works well alongside any bodywork therapy and greatly enhances the practice of any therapist.
About Ross Emmett
Ross is a dynamic and unique practitioner in many therapies including:
Bowen Therapy - Senior Instructor Level II Trainer
Ross has been a qualified instructor of Therapeutic Massage Therapy since 1983 and was a senior instructor of Bowen Therapy for 8 years (1997-2006).
However, Ross's qualifications do not adequately reflect his ability as a practitioner.
He ran busy clinical practices in Mt Isa (1981-1999) and Townsville,Queensland, Australia ( 1999-2008). Ross now travels throughout Australia and the world lecturing and holding seminars on his own unique insight into bodywork. His students range from allied health and medical practitioners to remedial therapists.
Emmett practitioners come from a broad cross-section of the healthcare profession throughout Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United Kingdom. These practitioners are highly adaptable to the needs of their clients and find that the Emmett Technique offers a valuable addition to their existing work. Using the neuromuscular release, and verbal enhancement skills, it helps practitioners more accurately assess and support a client's needs, while integrating it with their particular technique.
Ross first brought the technique to the UK in April 2007, to an enthusiastic group of Bowen therapists, massage therapists, physiotherapists, chiropractors and other body-workers, selected for their ability to adapt to suit a client's needs. Since then, the group has widened and we now receive many applications from both medical staff and complementary therapists who wish to learn Emmett.

The Emmett Technique
Such a therapy is the Emmett Technique, brought to the UK in Spring 2007 by its founder, Ross Emmett. Ross is a talented and vastly experienced bodyworker and therapist who also has a great gift for reading the body. His seminars, which have been held all over Australia and New Zealand, as well as in Germany, are offered by invitation only to qualified health practitioners. His technique has been designed to offer support from pain and discomfort, with most clients there may be beneficial effects before the end of their first session.
The Emmett therapist uses light pressure on precise points, and in sequences which may gently release muscle groups. Practitioners work with subtle body energies as well as with clients' expectations and attitudes that may help to support their health issues. Emmett can be used alone, or can be intergrated with other therapies.
Emmett is usually performed over light clothing and will generally take between 30 and 50 minutes. The practitioner is trained to identify areas of muscular tension and assess client's range of movement.
The Emmett Technique is used as a support and not a substitute for professional medical care or diagnosis. We do not prescribe or change medication and we strongly advise that you see your GP for medical advice on health issues.
