What is Emmett Therapy?
Emmett has been developed to assess and treat muscle and joint problems by de-activating and sedating memory related points to reduce pain and improve movement. The most effective way to achieving long term pain relief is by finding the cause and source of the pain and then treating that, not just the symptoms.
"Pain is your body's way of telling you that something is wrong"
Pain may occur due to the over use and over loading of muscles, tendons, ligaments and facia. This is often the result of poor posture, strenuous exercise, repetitive movements, injuries and stress. Through treating the cause rather than the symptoms Emmett Therapy has consistently shown to have dramatic pain relief and profound healing outcomes.

Treatment times may vary according to your therapist. While individual experiences may vary, relief is often instantaneous.
How often should I have Emmett Therapy?
