How does Emmett Therapy work?

Emmett Therapy is a type of body therapy that involves applying light pressure to specific points on the body. Understanding the body's response to light touch is central to the Emmett Technique. It is thought that the body reacts similarly to the process of a touch-screen.

Small sensors allow a therapist's touch to gain access to the brain. These points may have memory and emotional attachments in addition to directly influencing muscle action.

What are the benefits of Emmett Therapy?

Light pressure on specific points on the body can be applied in sequences to allow for gentle release of many common conditions. Even for first-time clients, the results can be dramatic. This technique is built around accurate and quick assessments of body imbalances.

The Emmett Technique can be used to alleviate a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Migraines or cluster headaches 
  • Neck and shoulder restriction 
  • Lymphatic congestion and breathing
  • Persistent heel and foot pain
  • Dizziness and sinus congestion 
  • Knee and ankle restrictions 
  • Abdominal cramps and bowel discomfort 
  • Back and hip discomfort
  • Pregnancy-related pain and discomfort
  • Fluid retention
  • Sports injuries

What is massage & what are its benefits?

Massage therapy is an umbrella term for a wide range of techniques that use touch, pressure and intensity to treat pain. It involves kneading or manipulating a person’s muscles and other soft tissues in order to improve their overall health and wellbeing.

A sense of deep relaxation and calm is one of the most noticeable benefits of massage. Receiving a massage allows your body to release endorphins, which are brain chemicals or neurotransmitters that produce feelings of well-being. Stress hormones like adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine are also reduced. According to research, high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system. Massage also has the following benefits:

  • Improved circulation
  • Reduced muscle tension
  • Relaxation
  • Well-regulated lymphatic system
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Increased flexibility and range of motion
  • Healthier skin
  • Faster recovery of soft tissue injuries
  • Increased mental acuity
  • Reduced anxiety and depression
