What happens during a consultation?
Emmett for people
Consultations take place in Keeston, Pembrokeshire (SA62 6EW). If transport or mobility are an issue, please contact me and I may be able to travel to you and bring my therapy couch.
Emmett points can be accessed through clothing, so there is no need to undress, but you will need to wear light, comfortable items (avoid jeans and clothes with thick seams). No creams or oils are used. During the session, you may lie on the treatment couch, sit or stand, depending on which areas of the body need to be accessible, and your degree of comfort/mobility.
After a discussion and some movement testing to establish which areas are causing you a problem, I follow a sequence of specific moves which initiate muscle and/or soft tissue release in your body. Results can be immediate, but it usually takes a couple of days (sometimes longer) for the muscles to process the treatment fully. One consultation may be sufficient, or you might benefit from several appointments or maintenance sessions to anchor the change, especially if you have been dealing with the issue for a long time (chronic conditions for example).
Please note that the Emmett Technique is a complementary therapy, and not a substitute for doctor opinion and care. It has many benefits but results are not guaranteed. I cannot provide a diagnosis, and if you are concerned about your health, you should contact your health care practitioner.
Emmett for animals
Generally, I travel to you so that the animal can be in his/her own environment, which allows them to feel more relaxed. If possible, keep noise and distractions to a minimum so the animal can benefit fully from the treatment. After an observation of the animal and a discussion to outline the issues to be addressed (and depending on your animal’s cooperation), I work on a sequence of carefully chosen points focusing on the problem areas. Animals usually move away when they need a break, and may come back for more (or the other side of the body) a few minutes later once their body has adjusted to the correction. When they have received enough treatment, they move away and go and find a quiet space to rest and process the changes. It is therefore quite difficult to know how long the session will last – they take just what they need, and no two appointments are the same.
Changes can be instantaneous, but it can also take up to two or three days (occasionally longer) for the body to integrate the treatment fully.
It is possible to combine appointments during the same visit (several people and/or animals).
Please note that the Emmett Technique is a complementary therapy, and not a substitute for veterinary opinion and care. It has many benefits but results are not guaranteed. I cannot provide a diagnosis, and if you are concerned about your animal’s health, you should contact your vet.
