EMMETT Technique

The Chameleon Approach to Body Therapies

The EMMETT Technique is an amazingly gentle, safe and simple to apply muscle release therapy. It is used to address pain and discomfort, improve body movement, restore a positive emotional state and improve the quality of life.

This internationally recognised technique developed by Ross Emmett and taught in over 26 countries worldwide, including Spain, is equally effective on both people and animals. You can view this short video made by Emmett-Uk

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.



EMMETT technique is a special form of body therapy that involves application of light pressure at specific points. These can be in sequences that enable gentle release for many common conditions. The results can be dramatic even for first time clients. Accurate and fast assessments of imbalances in the body are an integral feature of this technique.

  • Symptoms which have been relieved:
  • Neck and shoulder restriction
  • Lymphatic congestion and breathing
  • Migraines or cluster headaches
  • Abdominal cramps and bowel discomfort
  • Persistent heel and foot pain
  • Headaches, dizziness and sinus congestion
  • Back and hip discomfort Knee and ankle restrictions
  • Discomfort during pregnancy

And much, much more!

EMMETT Practitioners are highly adaptable to the needs of their clients. The motto of the ‘Chameleon” approach, is that an EMMETT therapist has the ability to assess and tailor the treatment according to the specific needs and beliefs of each client.

The EMMETT Technique is a highly effective standalone therapy or can be successfully integrated with many different modalities, such as: Massage, Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy etc. We also welcome people with no prior bodywork experience.
