Emmett attracts crowd at AAMT/BTFA Annual Conference in Hobart, May 2009.
During the recent AAMT National Conference (in collaboration with the BTFA), the Emmett Technique was represented with a stand in the exhibitors pavilion.
Tim Donehue (Emmett instructor from Mt Gambier in South Australia) along with Yanet Roubicek (Emm-Tech tutor and Tasmanian Emmett co-ordinator from Hobart) were on hand to promote the technique during the the two day conference.
Tim said the interest in the technique was overwhelming, " It was exciting to have a presence at the conference with so much interest shown over the weekend. This gave us the opportunity to answer a lot of questions and give clarifications regarding the technique and its beginnings. It was also good show that the Emmett Technique stands on its own, as a number of Bowen and Massage therapists thought the technique of Bowen Therapy and Emmett were the same."
During the weekend, Tim and Yanet conducted demonstrations. The moves, which are included in the EmmTech course, attracted large crowds of therapists who were amazed at the simplicity and power of the technique.
Yanet said "What the Therapist's loved most about Emmett is that they could see the results immediately - they were excited because they could see how this technique would give them results on the table - cutting down treatment times."
"People love to travel and were looking for information on one day and professional courses locally and far abroad, many from Tasmania, WA and believe it or not, Townsville (Ross's home town) registering interest for courses" she said.
Post-conference Emmett and Emm-Tech courses were well accepted and the interest registered since the conference has certainly raised the Emmett profile.
Cheers, Yanet and Tim.
