ABOUT EMMETT TECHNIQUE FOR PEOPLE
The EMMETT Technique is a unique form of body therapy.
It involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points,
referred to as "Emmett points."
The points are not the same as traditional trigger points or acupressure
points or any other points described in any other therapy.
The pressure required to stimulate the EMMETT points does not need to be firm
or painful. "No pain no gain" has no place in EMMETT Technique philosophy.
The EMMETT Therapist is skilled in the art of applying:
- the right amount of pressure
- in the right direction
- for the right amount of time
It is this combination of elements, unique to each individual, which creates
the desired physical change.
Although often combined with other techniques, the EMMETT Technique is an
efficient and effective therapy on its own.

has the knowledge to locate these critical points and re-set them with the

brain responds by sending new instructions back to affect the physical state
of the localized area.
