Emmett Technique CANADA


The course is divided into two-day learning blocks, called Modules, with 6 Modules in total. Material covered in the previous Module is reviewed before new work is covered. This ensures that all participants are up to date and ready to learn new material. Modules 1 & 2 are one day each in duration and always taught as a two-day block. The total course therefore consists of 11 days.

  • Module 1 & 2 - first day Module 1, second day Module 2
  • Module 3 - first day review of Modules 1 & 2, second day new Module 3 work
  • Module 4 - first day review of Module 3, second day new Module 4 work
  • Module 5 - first day review of Modules 4, second day new Module 5 work
  • Module 6 - first day review of Module 5, second day new Module 6 work
  • Module 6 Review - one day

Modules are generally offered 6 - 8 weeks apart to allow participants to gain real experience with the technique. Therefore, it is usually possible to complete the full course within 12 months.

Each Module is held over one day normally from 8.30am - 4.30pm. Courses are held across Australia and are offered worldwide. The courses are either taught by Ross Emmett or by his appointed Emmett Instructors.

Emmett Instructors are highly capable Emmett practitioners who have satisfactorily completed training to a high standard within the Emmett Technique and have attended Instructor Training with Ross Emmett. Emmett Instructors are passionate about teaching the technique and also have extensive experience and have backgrounds in other therapies.

EMMETT Practitioner (EP) Training

The EP workshops really do take the EMMETT Technique to a whole new level. The greatest asset of the technique is that Ross is still in full time practise continuing to evolve as a therapist through his treatments. The moves taught during these workshops are not "tip of the triangle stuff" but developments Ross has made since putting together the Modular course. As part of the process in determing the content of an EP course Ross shares his sequences with selected therapists who work with their own clients to make sure the results achieved are constant and reproducible.

Here are some anonymous comments we have received:

"Such an enjoyable 2 days. The course content was a complete game changer for me as a therapist looking for a strategic approach to applying the emmett moves. The principles learned on this course are amazing.Thank you both and of course Ross!!"

"Brilliant day. Loved the sequences Ross has put together for treaments. Loved being back immersed in Emmett."

"Throughout the two days the information given was extremely clear, there was plenty of time for discussion/ practice, and there was total focus on the work (nothing irrelevant or off subject). I felt at ease with the instructors and fellow class mates. The room and facilities were of very good standard. And more importantly, the training manual is fantastic. Very Very Pleased! money and time well spent. Delighted with everything. Thank you."
