THE EMMETT TECHNIQUE ON THE FASCIAS
What is EMMETT therapy?
The EMMETT Technique is an Australian technique of soft and natural care, original and unpublished in France. It is an "art of healing with the hands" like osteopathy, foot reflexology, Shiatsu or the Bowen technique.
Using his knowledge, Ross EMMETT combined his observations and experiences with animals and developed this remarkable method of pain and discomfort relief.
This technique, still little known in France, is internationally recognized and taught worldwide.
How does the EMMETT Technique work?
"The greatest strength comes from the slightest touch. »
The EMMETT Technique uses the skin as a highly sensitive touch screen: a light touch on specific points is all it takes to activate it. Through the surrounding connective tissue called fascia, impulses are given directly to muscles and tendons. The nervous system sends the stimulation from the connective tissue to the brain. The brain, in turn, sends corrective information to the entire body.
Blockages can thus be dissolved, so that the body regains its equilibrium in no time at all. The result is often felt immediately with a positive physical change.
What is an EMMETT Technique session like?
An EMMETT Therapy session can be performed while sitting, standing or lying down, depending on the location of the pain, directly on the skin or through light clothing.
It usually lasts between 30 minutes and an hour, sometimes longer.
It's a very effective self-contained therapy. It can nevertheless be successfully integrated with many other therapies: massage, chiropractic, occupational therapy, osteopathy, kinesiology, reflexology...
This gentle and holistic method has amazing and rapid results on all systems: connective tissue, musculoskeletal, nervous, respiratory, circulatory, digestive, lymphatic, immune, endocrine, metabolic, etc...
It reduces or even eliminates pain but also physical and emotional discomfort in a quick and lasting way.
It aims to stimulate the body's self-healing mechanisms through the use of small contacts via the connective tissue or fascia, muscles, tendons and nerves.
It is intended for infants and seniors as well as for our animal friends.
It obtains very good results on people looking for relaxation, as well as on muscular, articular pains...
Beneficial to all, it can also be practiced as a preventive measure, since it seems to significantly improve athletes' performance by making them more efficient.
The psoas, muscle of the soul
The psoas muscle is at the heart of the EMMETT approach.
An unbalanced psoas can lead to changes in posture, pain and physiological symptoms.
The change of posture can result in pelvic imbalance, shoulder imbalance, and temporomandibular joint problems.
The pains can be located in the lower back, pelvic area, groin, quadriceps, leg, but also in the heels (burning feet) or testicles.
The physiological symptoms They can lead to breathing restrictions, abdominal bloating, bowel problems, menstrual problems and even reproductive problems.
« The psoas literally embodies our deep desire for survival, and more profoundly, our basic desire to flourish. " - Liz Koch
