Frequently Asked Questions
Who is this course suitable for?
The course is suitable for anyone who has an interest in releasing their own muscle tensions or helping others release theirs. No previous bodywork experience is necessary - you may be:
- a carer wanting to help an elderly relative ease their pain and discomfort
- a mother wanting a first aid kit of easy muscle releases to help their children with day to day aches and pains of growing up
- an amateur sport enthusiast needing to release their own aching muscles
- an exercise professional such as a personal trainer or Pilates instructor wanting to help your clients extend their range of movement
- a therapist or health professional already and want an introduction to the EMMETT Technique Practitioner Course picking up some extra releases for your tool kit in the process
What will I learn?
You will learn how to recognise when areas of the body are too tight and how to release the tension in 11 muscles in the legs, shoulders, back and neck. The results from these moves are usually immediate - you will be able to see and feel the changes for yourself and after a short demonstration and practise you will be able to achieve the same kind of results for yourself and others.
How is the course assessed?
EMM-Tech is not an assessed course however students are supervised during practice sessions and extra assistance is offered where required, so all become competent and confident to perform the moves. A certificate of attendance is awarded at the end of the 8 hour course.
Can I use the training days as Continued Professional Development (CPD)?
This will depend on which professional body you have membership of. If you contact your own association and enquire whether you will be allowed to claim CPD. EMMETT Therapies UK is happy to help by providing them with information about the course for them to evaluate.
Currently we are aware that CPD points are awarded by the following associations;
- CThA and FHT
- Body Control Pilates (20)
- The Association of Reflexologists
- The General Chiropractic Council (8)
- BTPA (non Bowen CPD)
