What is The Emmett Technique ?

ITB_bunt copyThe Emmett Technique is a muscle release therapy which is used to address issues of pain and dysfunction. It is non invasive, and does not involve any massage oils, drugs, manipulations or high velocity thrusts.

The results are often dramatic and can be instantaneous.
