The EMMETT Technique is not intended to replace medical advice or treatment. It is recommended that your consult your own GP.

The EMMETT Technique is a unique body therapy created by Ross Emmett. It is a technique which has been shown to ease pain and discomfort, increase movement and improve quality of life.

How does it work?

The EMMETT Technique involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points on the body. In a similar way to the workings of a touch-screen the body responds to this light touch by changing muscle tension and action.

Personal affidavits

‘An accident in 1985 left me with intermittent back pain. When I hit 70,
four years ago, my back problem became acute and was accompanied with
what I called ‘a dead thigh’. My doctor was no help, he sent me for
scans and blood tests, all to no avail.

After three visits to John I could feel some improvement, after six
sessions I had no back pain and no dead thigh. That was over a year ago
and I am flying around now.’
Affidavit from D.D.

‘I recently suffered from backache,and as a result I had constant pain and restricted movement. As John Kenny is a practitioner in the Emmet Technique, I went to him for a treatment. The treatment was gentle non-invasive and very effective. I came away pain free and with full movement. I highly recommend John as a practitioner of the Emmet Technique.’
