“No pain no gain” has no place in EMMETT Technique philosophy.
The EMMETT Technique is a unique form of body therapy which was first introduced to the UK in 2007 by Ross Emmett, the founder of the EMMETT Technique who was born in Australia and still lives and works there.
It involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points, referred to as “EMMETT points”. The points are not the same as traditional trigger points or acupressure points or any other points described in any other therapy. The pressure required to stimulate the EMMETT points does not need to be firm or painful. “No pain no gain” has no place in EMMETT Technique philosophy.
The EMMETT Technique can be combined with other techniques or used on its own. The treatment can be applied directly to the skin or through clothing. Clients can be treated seated, standing or lying down.
The EMMETT Technique is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissue of the body, and the therapist may help relieve tensions resulting in feelings of improved comfort within the body.
It may be enjoyed by people of all ages, from babies to the elderly. Many people find they feel more at ease within their body and emotional well-being is enhanced.
The relaxing nature of the technique results in people reporting typical responses such as:
- improved comfort and ease within the area treated such as back, abdomen, hips, legs, knees, ankles, feet, shoulders, arm, hand and neck
- more restful sleep
- enhanced mood
- a sense of lightness within their body.
