What is EMMETT...

The EMMETT Technique for animals is an effective, gentle, safe and easy to apply muscle release therapy. It is used to address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and restrictions, restore a positive emotional and behavioral state and improve the quality of life.

This internationally recognized technique developed by Australian Ross Emmett is now taught in over 35 countries worldwide. It is equally effective on both people and animals.

How It Works...

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.

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 the physical state of the localized area.

The result of an EMMETT treatment is often instantaneous physical changes.
