What is EMMETT...

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

This internationally recognised technique developed by Australian Ross Emmett is now taught in over 35 countries worldwide. It is equally effective on both people and animals.

How it works-

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. The EMMETT Technique Therapist can be compared to a body electrician who has the knowledge to locate these critical points and re-set them with the correct stimulation.  The stimulation is registered by the receiver's nervous system and their brain responds by sending new instructions back to the physical state of the localized area.   The result of an EMMETT treatment is often instantaneous physical changes.


Discover how this gentle and safe muscle release technique can be used to address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and restrictions.

Symptoms which may be relieved:

  • Injuries from sport or accidents
  • Unbalanced gait/stance
  • Lead/harness strain
  • Lower back distress
  • Inhibited movement/muscle restrictions
  • Poor performance / behavior changes

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.

An EMMETT treatment improves recovery from workouts helping competition horses and dogs achieve peak performance, along with addressing lameness, muscle restrictions, saddle soreness, uneven gait and lack of performance.
Learn how to notice the sometimes-subtle signs of pain or discomfort that many experienced owners, riders and handlers can fail to identify.
