A demonstration and talk from the founder of the Emmett Technique - Ross Emmett.
What is the Emmett Technique?
Emmett Technique is a gentle muscle release therapy used to relieve pain and discomfort, and to improve body movement and balance.
This technique was developed in Australia and is now very popular in the UK, Europe and Australia. It is used either as a stand alone treatment, or incorporated into other therapies. It is used by anyone from nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, personal trainers through to massage therapists.
How can Emmett help me?
If you have tried conventional treatments, physical therapy and other types of therapies with no success, then it is worth giving the Emmett technique a try and see the results! It can give substantial long lasting relief from issues within the first treatment.
Within the clinic at Tracey's Body Repairs (Bodywork & Massage Therapy), it is used to treat isolated area's in short amounts of time. For example, soft tissue mechanic Tracey Lillis used it very successfully at two Crossfit Games (Elite Fitness League) held in Rockhampton in 2014. It assisted athletes competing in the competition to get back in the 'box' when they came off the field experiencing shoulder restrictions and tightness, lower back pain, hamstring tightness, neck pain and more. They each had approximately 20 minutes on the table to get a treatment and then they were back into competition.
There was amazement by Crossfit athletes and the other massage therapist alike (who was using deep tissue massage) at the results achieved with no discomfort (and a lot less effort) compared to the deep tissue massage.

What can I expect in an Emmett treatment at Tracey's Body Repairs?
I will discuss and assess range of motion, pain and discomfort with you. I will then either treat you standing, sitting or lying down depending on the issue. Further testing and 'refining' of body movement will be done before you leave feeling better than when you came in!
"I just want to thank you with all my heart for the treatments you have applied to my body so far. I walked away today absolutely stunned. My shoulders have never been able to move forward or sideways for such a long time." read more
