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 EMMETT practitioner uses accurate and fast assessments to find imbalances in the body and then applies pressure to specific points. This is done is an individualised sequence that enables gentle release of muscles.
The points are not the same as traditional trigger points or acupressure points or any other points described in any other therapy.
I tend to use the EMMETT technique in conjunction with the Bowen Technique. When I find a muscle that needs an instant release, I use Emmett to release it and then switch back to Bowen Therapy to align it. The two therapies are very complimentary of each other.
