EMMETT Therapy may reduce discomfort and help achieve improved movement – with instant results.
No need for manipulations. No need to use equipment.
The EMMETT Technique is an established form of non-invasive body therapy that involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points of the body (known as ‘EMMETT points’). These points will release muscle tension, effectively alleviate discomfort and improve restricted movement.
The points are not the same as trigger or acupressure points and are unique to the EMMETT Technique.
The degree of pressure required to stimulate the EMMETT points is very light and there is no use of firm or uncomfortable manipulation, therefore the treatment is completely gentle and painless and even the most nervous animal tolerates it.
Therapy is tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual animal being treated. No two animals are treated in exactly the same way as they are individuals who deserve a bespoke approach to their treatment.
The best analogy to use is comparing an EMMETT Technique Therapist with an electrician who has the knowledge to locate the critical points which ‘power’ the body and can re-set them with the correct stimulation.
The stimulation is registered by the animal’s nervous system and the brain reacts by sending new instructions back to alter the physical state of the localised area.
The way the therapy works is similar to the workings of a touch-screen computer (a light touch and the programme opens). By using this specific touch, the body responds by communicating with the muscle memory and this affects a change in muscle tension and action resulting in a fast relief of muscular discomfort.
The result is often instantaneous. Owners/Caregivers often report a positive behavioural change in the animal that has been treated.
The EMMETT Technique is practised in over 40 countries and is used on animals with extremely successful results. It has been taught on horses in the UK since 2011 and on dogs from 2013.
