Emmett Technique is a physical therapy that primarily involves using light finger pressure at specific points on the body. Its based on the belief that light rather than heavy touch, can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissues of the body. The location of the points and the pressure and direction of the touch by the practitioner, can often produce instant feelings of comfort and ease, which may be quite surprising if areas have long been restricted and stiff. The sessions themselves can also produce a feeling of emotional well being and calmness.
How does Emmett Technique work?
It is thought that during an Emmett session, the brain receives and evaluates the stimulus from the practitioners touch and pressure, to initiate the relaxation response in the soft tissue. There are receptor points all over the body so the therapist can target the area of concern. It may sound surprising but the relaxation response and the feeling of ease in the area is often immediate. Also because the touch is light it makes Emmett beneficial and acceptable for many conditions. However if you would like to know if Emmett might benefit you then please contact Emma Deyn for further information.
How long does a session take?
An Emmett session takes up to an hour, depending on how specific your issue is. People can be treated while sitting, standing or lying down. The treatment can be applied directly to the skin or through light clothing, and sessions can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
