I am a deep tissue massage therapist and am also qualified in other forms of massage, Reflexology and Reiki. I came across the EMMETT Technique quite by accident. I was looking for an alternative treatment for my prolonged neck problem, as the usual treatments (various forms of massages, chiropractic, acupuncture) had no effect. It was while I was at one of these alternative appointments, the therapist used an EMMETT move that had an immediate effect and had worked where all else had failed. I was so impressed, I signed up for the start of the next course. In my experience, (read more)

I came to know the Emmett Technique almost by accident as an EMM-Tech day had been organised by my Body Control Pilates teacher. I had not researched it (unlike me) and on the day was ‘blown away’. When I looked up about the courses I found that Ross was still in the UK, I immediately signed up for Modules 1&2. I was not disappointed is an understatement! As a Chronic Pain Management Specialist Doctor I perform many, many injections, including acupuncture. Since learning Emmett I am using it with as many patients as I can, some with some acupuncture as well but several, at the moment with only Emmett, particularly with shoulder problems.The increased range of movement and the pain relief they achieve is amazing. I am so looking forward to the other modules.Dr. Liz Garthwaite, Specialist in Chronic Pain Management and Emmett Technique Practitioner.
I'm still blown away with what I learnt at the EMM-Tech course. (July 2012). This stuff is incredible. I'm implementing it into my own movement and correction assessment with mind boggling results. I am finding that I am replacing my normal practice of foam rolling and pnf stretches with Emmett moves. It's because I'm getting lightning results which enables me to progress quickly with positive body movement exercise. I am getting a lot of hands on practice with my personal training clients and leaving them happy but confused. Comments like "that’s not supposed to happen so easily" or” it’s a mind trick" and "how the hell do you explain that" are comments received. I have tried the calf release and the foot balance technique with amazing feedback. And results. My clients are going crazy about it. This simple but effective system will be a fantastic tool to my training and business.
One of my patients had a persistent pain in the side of his leg that had resisted several attempts at treatment over a number of months – including painful deep tissue work along the iliotibial band. I tried the Emmett ITB move on him once and he reported an immediate change. The pain went away and has not returned.David Hallam, McTimoney Chiropractor and Emmett Technique Practitioner.
The use of Emmett Therapy has hugely enhanced the outcome of my treatments of clients with MS, stroke and Parkinsons disease – particularly in the area of balance and core stability. I have recently been invited to be the physiotherapist for Tenbury Wells Amateur boxing club; Emmett Therapy allows me to treat the boxers in a gym environment without special equipment, plinths etc. Minor injuries can be resolved straight away without a need for a break in training. I have also treated my son who has experienced painful leg muscles for years as a result of toe walking. He no longer has pain and is able to play rugby and football with less risk of injury.Liz Boland, Physiotherapist and Emmett Technique Practitioner.
Ross Emmett’s Technique is the quickest most effective treatment out there. By incorporating it into my existing disciplines clients invariably have a positive change to their pain or discomfort within the first session, which quite often is all that is needed. Learning with Ross and his team has improved my assessment skills, shown the great importance of words in treatments and provided me with a system of working using precision, purpose and meaning to bring about the fastest outcome for my clients. The Emmett Technique is also a fabulous stand alone quick fix treatment that I use regularly in gyms to increase peoples range of movement or rid them of that training niggle.
