Ross Emmett’s Technique is the quickest most effective treatment out there.

I started my EMMETT Practitioner Training, in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland, in February 2015. I only planned to attend Modules 1&2 to see what it was all about. Two years and twelve modules later, I have achieved the status of Advanced EMMETT Practitioner. I was taught and supported by Sue Gassick, Director and Senior Instructor at
The use of EMMETT Therapy has hugely enhanced the outcome of my treatments of clients with MS, stroke and Parkinsons disease – particularly in the area of balance and core stability.

I came to know the Emmett Technique almost by accident as an EMM-Tech day had been organised by my Body Control Pilates teacher. I had not researched it (unlike me) and on the day was ‘blown away’. When I looked up about the courses I found that Ross was still in the UK, I immediately signed up for Modules 1&2. I was not disappointed is an understatement! As a Chronic Pain Management Specialist Doctor I perform many, many injections, including acupuncture. Since learning Emmett I am using it with as many patients as I can, some with some acupuncture as well but several, at the moment with only Emmett, particularly with shoulder problems.The increased range of movement and the pain relief they achieve is amazing. I am so looking forward to the other modules.

The Emmett Technique is the most valuable ‘tool’ in my ‘tool box’! It works perfectly with my Pilates practice and I have been able to treat many of my clients with outstanding success. From stiff necks, painful shoulders, tight hamstrings and poor balance - the list is endless, the treatment quick and painless and the results amazing. It is very rewarding to be able to offer such a service ‘on the spot’ and demonstrate how one can use the ‘moves on oneself’ as I do frequently! I am very much looking forward to completing my training.

I'm still blown away with what I learnt at the EMM-Tech course. (July 2012). This stuff is incredible. I'm implementing it into my own movement and correction assessment with mind boggling results. I am finding that I am replacing my normal practice of foam rolling and pnf stretches with Emmett moves. It's because I'm getting lightning results which enables me to progress quickly with positive body movement exercise. I am getting a lot of hands on practice with my personal training clients and leaving them happy but confused. Comments like ``that’s not supposed to happen so easily`` or” it’s a mind trick`` and ``how the hell do you explain that`` are comments received. I have tried the calf release and the foot balance technique with amazing feedback. And results. My clients are going crazy about it. This simple but effective system will be a fantastic tool to my training and business. I want to learn more. I can't wait.

I have been using the Emmett Technique for 2 years now in my practice as a body therapist. I love the simplicity and practicality of it. It is so accessible and can be used to help people with many different issues. There is so much we can do quickly and effectively to help ease pain and ill health, and the Emmett Technique has become a key skill which I use every day. My clients now come requesting Emmett specifically as the message is spreading fast at how effective it is.

I see a lady for Personal training who has fibromyalgia and is in pain most of the time. Since I have introduced Emmett to her she can now have a pain free afternoon and evening. Most of her issues are in the upper body and so we have concentrated on shoulder, neck and arm moves with psoas to balance. The pain relief can often be instant, in some cases the discomfort is radically reduced. It introduces a better quality of life and enables her to enjoy her activities more. As we work more the moves have more effect and her confidence (and smile) grows. I also work with an elderly gentleman who has ataxia which affects his gait and balance. This greatly impacts his day to day activity and reduces his confidence to get around primarily for fear of falling. I have introduced Emmett foot balance, calf release and psoas to him. The results regarding balance have been amazing. He has gone from a wobble to standing on one leg! Imagine what that has done to his confidence. Admittedly he needs regular work and we do personal training together but we are both impressed with the results. He calls me his “witch” and in this context I really don’t mind.

One of my patients had a persistent pain in the side of his leg that had resisted several attempts at treatment over a number of months – including painful deep tissue work along the iliotibial band. I tried the Emmett ITB move on him once and he reported an immediate change. The pain went away and has not returned.

The use of Emmett Therapy has hugely enhanced the outcome of my treatments of clients with MS, stroke and Parkinsons disease – particularly in the area of balance and core stability. I have recently been invited to be the physiotherapist for Tenbury Wells Amateur boxing club; Emmett Therapy allows me to treat the boxers in a gym environment without special equipment, plinths etc. Minor injuries can be resolved straight away without a need for a break in training. I have also treated my son who has experienced painful leg muscles for years as a result of toe walking. He no longer has pain and is able to play rugby and football with less risk of injury.

Ross Emmett’s Technique is the quickest most effective treatment out there. By incorporating it into my existing disciplines clients invariably have a positive change to their pain or discomfort within the first session, which quite often is all that is needed. Learning with Ross and his team has improved my assessment skills, shown the great importance of words in treatments and provided me with a system of working using precision, purpose and meaning to bring about the fastest outcome for my clients. The Emmett Technique is also a fabulous stand alone quick fix treatment that I use regularly in gyms to increase peoples range of movement or rid them of that training niggle.
— Darren Woodall, Massage and Bowen Therapist and Emmett Technique Practitioner.
The Emmett Technique is a valuable part of my everyday practice in treating patients. The general feedback I get from those who have experienced the technique is they feel they maintain a sense of well being for a longer period of time and some folks have been amazed by the deep effective changes that can be achieved from a relatively subtle application. In essence, they don't require so many treatments and contrary to some beliefs, this is 'good for business'. Thank you Ross for sharing your skills!
