What Is EMMETT Technique for Animals
The EMMETT Technique involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points, referred to as “Emmett Points”. The points are not the same as traditional trigger points or acupressure points or other points described in any other therapy. The pressure required to stimulate the Emmett points does not need to be firm or painful. “No pain no gain” has no place in EMMETT Technique philosophy.
The EMMETT Technique is growing in popularity around the World and is known to be a safe and simple non-invasive muscle release therapy used to address pain and discomfort along with improving restrictions. The result of an EMMETT treatment is often instantaneous physical change.
Just as this technique is used on people, EMMETT can be used for the benefit of our animals. The training is available for Horses and a separate course is available for Dogs. An EMMETT session improves recovery from workouts helping competition horses and dogs achieve peak performance, along with addressing lameness, saddle soreness, uneven gait and lack of performance. EMMETT Therapy is committed to sharing the EMMETT Technique for animals.
EMMETT Technique Practitioner training is primarily designed for complementary therapists and qualified Veterinary and Chiropractor professionals interested in extending their skills. All practitioners are encouraged to enhance their existing practice by integrating the EMMETT Technique with their prior training.
Horse and Dog owners and non therapists may also attend courses as we believe that everyone, regardless of academic skills, should be able to learn how to notice the sometimes subtle signs of pain or discomfort that many experienced owners, riders and handlers fail to spot.
What about me…. Yes the EMMETT Technique Horse and Dog courses also include an impressive selection of beneficial human muscle release moves taught from our popular EMMETT Short Course. These moves can assist the Rider and Handler.
The EMMETT 4 Animals Short Course was created by Ross Emmett, so that non-therapists would have the opportunity to use some of his work to help themselves and others including riders & handlers.
