About 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.

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 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.

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 first introduced to the UK in 2007.

It has been growing in popularity ever since and has proved to have wide appeal.

Physical therapists, medical and exercise professionals across many modalities have completed the EMMETT Technique Practitioner training program.
