Hippocrates held the belief that the body must be treated as a whole and not just a series of parts. A belief I hold dear when treating those in pain. I treat the whole person using Emmett or Bowen working with people who are often at the end of their patience, having tried everything. Symptoms such as headaches, knee, back or neck pain, frozen shoulder, bladder problems can all respond very quickly to treatment.
Earlier this year I received my certification as an Advanced Emmett Practitioner to EP2 level, bringing a whole new perspective in using the EMMETT Technique for effective pain management.
What affects on the body does Emmett have? While using Emmett moves I have felt muscles relax, pelvis shift, seen posture change, limb mobility increase. All wonderful effects of Emmett. The knock on effect is increased energy as the body is better balanced and moving easier. Ultimately the more balanced the body is the more autonomic functions like circulation and breathing improve and a sense of wellbeing is restored.
“Overwhelming feedback from Bowen Therapists is that the Emmett Technique has transformed their practice; in particular the speed with which they can bring changes to clients, dramatically improving client outcomes. The Emmett Technique is applied with either light touch at 2 holding points simultaneously or a one directional moves over specific locations on the body which affects . Emmett & Bowen Techniques can correct body alignment problems quickly, with minimal client pain and therapist effort. It isn’t physiotherapy or massage. Advanced practitioners are trained in assessment skills and how to tailor treatments precisely to their clients’ individual needs”.
I now use both Emmett & Bowen Techniques while working in clinics, depending on the clients need at that time, to greater and often quicker affect. As always, long term problems need more sessions, like peeling an onion, to come back to the source of feeling well. Three or four sessions usually brings relief and repair.
