I originally booked on a one-day introductory horse course with Tony Sherry. I don’t ride so it was more to keep my daughter company. As a family we have owned horses for over 20 years.

As a dad I was the driver, held the horse and handed over the money over. You’ve got the idea; a pony club dad. So this course appealed to me as it offered the potential to save some money on treating our horses. There were six horses on the yard so potentially a huge saving.

I suffered from a debilitating neck injury that over time, with over-compensating muscles, I was in constant pain. I had plantar fasciitis and the daily pain level was 8 out of 10. During the day I mentioned to Tony that I was in pain and asked if they could help, throwing down a gauntlet really. I didn’t believe this would work as I had been to GP’s and medical specialists, who gave me a few exercises and basically wrote me off.

So, within 10 minutes of a few light touch moves on my muscles I was swaying around, re-setting my balance and body, balancing correctly on my heels, standing more upright. Apparently my face was a picture. However, what was amazing was that my pain level had dropped to around two out of ten. This not only had a huge impact on my pain, but my psychological outlook has now changed. I had been in so much pain for 15 years and I simply needed to be re-balanced. Yes my underlying problems were still there, but I had my life back. I can cope so much better now having a positive outlook on life. You may not realise just how much pain you are experiencing until it’s lowered to a manageable level.

The next step for me was a natural one. I started the horse course, then moved on to learning how to treat humans and dogs. I realised that releasing the fascia and muscles can have such a huge impact on your quality of life. As a practitioner in horses, humans and dogs I have had some amazing results.

I can highly recommend EMMETT therapies. If you are concerned that you don’t know enough about anatomy then don’t worry.  Tony teaches all that in a fun and interesting way. If you think you will feel left out because others know more than you then don’t worry. Within five minutes you’re all having fun. Tony is an inspirational instructor and makes the learning sessions fun.

EMMETT courses have changed many people’s lives for the better.

In any form of health treatments there are no guarantees, but I can guarantee one thing. By the end of the day you will be hooked on EMMETT and want to learn more.
