What is Emmett Technique Therapy?

The EMMETT Technique is a unique form of body relaxation therapy for both people and animals, involving the application of light finger pressure at specific points.  It is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissues of the body, and that the therapist may thereby help relieve feelings of tension. Many people find they feel more at ease within their body and their emotional well being is enhanced. Animals appear more calm and at ease.

The Emmett Technique is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissues of the body. It is understood that it can help relieve tension which results in feelings of improved comfort and possibly even improved mood.

With just the right amount of pressure in a specific location, an application opens and you are good to go. We believe the EMMETT points are small sensory receptors that allow access to the brain via the therapists’ touch. With the correct light touch, the brain receives and evaluates this stimulus and initiates the relaxation response in the soft tissue.  There are receptor points all over the body so the therapist can target the area of concern.  It may sound surprising but the relaxation response and the feeling of ease in the area are often immediate. 

The pressure required is not heavy or painful, in fact it tends to be quite the opposite.
