“ Lovely experience today – Emmett Therapy combined with back, neck and shoulder massage. Gill really listened and targeted problem areas perfectly. Relaxing warm atmosphere 😊 Highly recommend- will be back soon!.”
For the first 15 years of my working career I was a professional chef and studied food & nutrition, working in hospitals and health care establishments. In this work I would talk to patients about diet, and work closely with other health care professionals & therapists who seemed to make a physical difference, and also Reiki healers who improved the emotional well being of patients. I saw that combined with a good nutritionally balanced diet, health would improve.
I wanted to make more of a difference to people’s well-being, so I retrained for a new career, starting with Massage Therapy.
My learning journey has continued as I have added new skills and techniques, as the human body seems to be a never-ending discovery of physical, emotional and spiritual possibilities. Simple things such as a positive thought process combined with physical therapy can release a lot of held-in tension, and that’s what I promote in my practice today, the power of the mind to heal the body.
I have been a therapist for over twenty years now, and I am as enthusiastic today as when I started, as I genuinely enjoy making a difference to people’s health and learning new ways of healing with revolutionary Emmett Muscle Release Therapy!
About the EMMETT Technique:
The Emmett Technique is a special form of body therapy that involves application of light finger pressure at specific points. These points are in sequences that enable gentle releases treating pain and discomfort, improving muscle action, flexibility & encouraging homeostasis and that the therapist may thereby help relieve feelings of tension. Many people find they feel more at ease within their body and their emotional well being is enhanced.
In the science of Critical Point Analysis it is identified that in any highly complex system there is a specific, critical point at which the smallest input will result in the greatest change, where the least force exerts the greatest effect (for example a light touch on a small cog can halt the largest engine).
It is with this understanding that the Emmett Technique influences the most complex system known, the human body. Working within this principle the Emmett Technique is able to affect two types of receptors, sensory and muscular, which may also activate an emotional state. The therapist is compared to a body electrician who has the power to locate these overlaps or re-set buttons. The muscle that has tripped out due to overuse or overload may only need a light pressure to re-set.
The result is often instantaneous feelings of greater comfort. See the Client Testimonials page to read some examples of the kinds of problems helped by the EMMETT Technique.
EMMETT is truly a complementary therapy. It may be applied in isolation but it also combines easily with all other bodywork and exercise specialities such as massage, chiropractic, physiotherapy, Bowen therapy, Craniosacral therapy, yoga, Pilates and personal training as some typical examples.

Sessions can last anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes if the EMMETT Technique is used alone – longer if combined with a relaxing massage or other modality. Sessions last from 45 minutes.
