How does the Emmett technique work?

The Emmett Therapy is an understanding of the response of the human body to light touch. Also, it suggests that the body reacts in a similar way to the functions of a touch-screen device. The small sensors allow access to the brain through the gentle touch of the qualified therapist. Aside from directly influencing muscle action, these points may also have an emotional and memory attachment.

The treatment for Emmett Therapy is usually performed over light clothing and typically lasts from 30 to 50 minutes. The therapists are trained in assessment skills and how to tailor treatments specifically to the individual needs of the clients. Also, they are trained in assisting the client in recognising and enhancing the changes achieved during the treatment. The results of the treatment are almost instantaneous. Before they leave, they may notice changes in various areas such as flexibility, balance, range of movement, pain levels, breathing, and also other functions which depends on the areas worked on.
