The EMMETT Technique

The EMMETT Technique is a unique form of body therapy

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.

Internationally Recognised Muscle Release Technique

The EMMETT Technique may assist with:

  • Relieving discomfort

  • Improving body movement
  • Aiding relaxation
  • Improving quality of life
Key features of EMMETT Technique treatments:
  • Accurate and fast assessments of body imbalances
  • Can be done sitting, lying or standing
  • Client can be either fully clothed or with some outer layers of clothing removed
  • Suitable for everyone from babies, during pregnancy, for the elderly and everyone in between

The EMMETT Therapist is skilled in the art of applying:

  • the right amount of pressure
  • in the right direction
  • for the right amount of time

It is this combination of elements, unique to each individual, which creates the desired physical change.

Although often combined with other techniques, the EMMETT Technique is an efficient and effective therapy on its own.

What does an EMMETT treatment involve?
  • Clients can be treated seated, standing or lying down.
  • It can be a standalone treatment or combined with other techniques.
  • The treatment can be applied directly to the skin or done through clothing.
  • Sessions can last anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes if the EMMETT Technique is used alone – longer if combined with a relaxing massage or other modality.

How does it work?

The EMMETT Technique is an understanding of the body’s response to light touch. It has been suggested that the body reacts in a similar way to the workings of a touch-screen. Small sensors allow access to the brain via the therapists’ touch. As well as the ability to directly influence muscle action, these points may have a memory and emotional attachment.
It is suggested that the EMMETT Technique may interact with the body as described in the science of Critical Point Analysis which identifies that...
  • “In any highly complex system there is a specific, critical point at which the smallest input will result in the greatest change”
  • For example a light touch on a small cog can halt the largest engine.
  • The EMMETT Technique Therapist can be compared to a body electrician who has the knowledge to locate these critical points and re-set them with the correct stimulation.
  • The stimulation is registered by the receiver’s nervous system and their brain responds by sending new instructions back to affect the physical state of the localized area.
  • The result is often instantaneous physical change.
  • Special language skills are incorporated to reinforce and anchor the positive physical changes greatly enhancing the outcome.

The EMMETT Technique was formally launched in 1999 and expanded internationally in 2007.

It has been growing in popularity ever since and has proved to have wide appeal as therapists, medical and exercise professionals across many modalities have completed the EMMETT Technique Practitioner training program.

Symptoms which have been relieved:

  • Neck and shoulder restriction
