Watch Ross Emmett at Work


The Emmett Technique is a special form of body therapy that involves application of light finger pressure at specific points. These points are in sequences that enable gentle releases treating pain and discomfort, improving muscle action, flexibility & encouraging homeostasis.


In the science of Critical Point Analysis it is identified that in any highly complex system there is a specific, critical point at which the smallest input will result in the greatest change, where the least force exerts the greatest effect (for example a light touch on a small cog can halt the largest engine).


It is with this understanding that the Emmett Technique influences the most complex system known, the human body. Working within this principle the Emmett Technique is able to affect two types of receptors, sensory and muscular, which may also activate an emotional state. The therapist is compared to a body electrician who has the power to locate these overlaps or re-set buttons. The muscle that has tripped out due to overuse or overload may only need a light pressure to re-set. 


I am looking forward to meeting you one day soon

I believe we build most muscle in our bodies based on we do in our every day lives. For example: I myself stand most of the day in my clinic & I exercise most mornings standing too, so my muscles are strongest and best functioning while I stick in my routine.


What I have personally found is that I throw something different into my day that is not part of the routine my body is accustomed to, like the occassional gardening, a different kind of exercise or try have a day on the couch, my body gives me all kinds of curry. Apparently my body appreciates change as much as I do :)


Does this happen to you?


I love resetting peoples bodies with the Emmett Technique. We can reset your body for what ever lifestyle you choose (with in reason, lol) Feeling good again is incredible, make an appointment today :)

Mum & Baby Treatment Joy

Here are just a few symptoms that your baby may have some discomfort.


* When you put them in their car seat, do they stiffen up to try not go in, cry every time? Could be a sore neck or back.


* When you put them down in the cot, do they start to cry, wiggle and move around a lot? Could be a sore back.


* When laying down anywhere is the head always only sitting one side? Could be a sore neck.


* When you are breastfeeding does baby only breastfeeds comfortably and easily one side? Could be a sore neck.


* When breastfeeding does baby have trouble latching? Could be a sore jaw, perhaps sinus, sore neck.


* Does baby always feel stiff and rigid when you holding them? They may be growing and need a gentle tune-up to relax the muscles again.  


*Does your baby have trouble with wind, reflux? :) We have many options to assist here too!  


The Emmett Technique is very gentle and incredible at bringing yourself and your baby back into relaxed harmony again. Babies can't tell you when they are in pain, all they have is their tears and their unsettledness to let you know something is not quite right. Emmett technicians are trained to watch your baby move, notice what is bothering them and in most cases know how to fix the problem with little to no discomfort to your baby or you.
