Congratulations to Andy Pearson who completed his charity climb of Kilimanjaro this week.

Andy had  chiropractic treatment to help him with some knee pain he was getting in the last stages of his training.

He’s second from the left in the picture.

Emmett technique is a gentle body therapy developed by Ross Emmett, an Australian practitioner.  It uses light pressure and movement on specific points of the body to relieve muscle tension and restore balance. I did some Emmett training back in 2011 and have been using bits of it ever since as a complement to the McTimoney chiropractic moves I use in clinic.

I have seen some very good results with Emmett: particularly with persistent muscle problems that have failed to respond to other approaches. It’s also very comfortable to receive and has quick results so you can see (and feel) whether it has helped straight away. I have used it to help people with assorted muscular aches and pains including: neck and shoulder pain, low back pain and knee pain. It does not work for everybody but can be remarkably effective when it does.

I was so impressed by the results I was getting I carried on with the training and have now qualified as an Emmett practitioner (December 2012).

I will continue to use the technique in clinic as an adjunct to other therapies and I will also offer it as a standalone technique for those people who just want an Emmett treatment without any chiropractic.

Give the clinic a call if you are interested in this approach. David Hallam

“… The even better thing I wish to draw to your attention, though, is McTimoney. I shan’t go into the medical/technical details: just Google it. Suffice to say that it’s a form of chiropractic devised 50 years ago which involves manipulations so incredibly gentle that during your first treatment you might worry you’re being ripped off. Where are the clicks? Where are the crunches? Where’s the pain to show you it’s all working?
