The EMMETT Technique

The EMMETT Technique is a gentle 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. 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. The EMMETT practitioner uses accurate and fast assessments to find imbalances in the body and then applies pressure to specific points. This is done in an individualised sequence that enables gentle release of muscles. Emmett (as with all health treatment) may be associated with possible adverse reactions in individual cases.  Some patients occasionally experience slight tenderness. Is there any research? Presently, Ross Emmett and practitioners of the EMMETT Technique are compiling evidence to show the relief of symptoms by using Emmett. Research: 1. Cardiac Challenge 2016 This data was collected from 214 bike riders, spectators and supporters at the Cardiac Challenge, Cairns, Queensland, using a smart phone app to measure the range of movement before and after EMMETT moves were applied.  The improvements shown as a result of the EMMETT Technique were significant, especially the hamstring changes and neck rotation (SCM).  Click on this link to read the protocol used and the results: http://emmett-uk.com/sites/default/files/Articles/2016%20Cardiac%20Challenge.pdf 2. Standing Balance Research Care Home residents received EMMETT Technique for their balance - 86% improved!  Click on this link to read the results. http://emmett-uk.com/sites/default/files/Research/Standing%20Balance%20testimonial%20%E2%80%93%20September%202005.pdf 3. EMMETT Technique versus the Foam Roller Research A BSc Honors student recently submitted this research as part of her degree at Queens University Belfast.  Rugby union players were separated into 3 groups:  EMMETT Technique, foam roller and control.  Significant increase (70%) in range of movement was shown when using the EMMETT Technique, and foam rolling was shown to have no significant effect.  Click on this link to read the full report. http://emmett-uk.com/sites/default/files/Research/ITB%20v%20Foam%20Roller%20Research%20paper.pdf
