Every year up to 40% of the population – over 16 million of us – will suffer a bout of back pain and if you’re one of the unlucky ones, you will find that the state of your bed will quickly become a priority.

EMMETT Technique is a gentle body therapy developed by Ross Emmett, an Australian practitioner. It is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissue of the body, and the therapist may help relieve tensions resulting in feelings of improved comfort within the body. I did some EMMETT training back in 2011 and have been using bits of it ever since as a complement to the McTimoney chiropractic I use in clinic.
I was so impressed by the results I was getting I carried on with the training and qualified as an EMMETT practitioner (December 2012).
I use the Technique in clinic as an adjunct to other therapies and I also offer it as a standalone treatment for those people who just want an EMMETT Technique treatment without any chiropractic.
The EMMETT Technique is not intended to replace or substitute any medical advice or treatment. It is recommended that you consult your General Practitioner about any health concerns.
Give the clinic a call if you are interested in this approach (01733) 750893.
