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

Learn The Valuable Emmett Technique in Cairns



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?

Factory Reset

I think we are born a factory model human and start building muscles for the life we are going to have. Some of us will be bricklayers, others will be office workers, some fitness trainers, others librarians, some will stand all day, some will sit.


How could one factory model human do all this efficiently???????


I believe what happens is we build muscle for our lifestyles and our bodies work well in what we choose to do. BUT!!!! This means we are not using other muscles in our bodies properly, the muscles we don't use get weaker and weaker while the ones we do use get stronger and stronger. This makes us malfunction after a period of time, there is no choice really.


We are perfectly imperfect!!!!!!!!


This is why we need a factory reset every one to two months, to bring our bodies back into balance again. Just so we don't get too far into our lifestyle muscle building pattern where major injuries can start popping up.


Look after your body and your body will look after you
