EMMETT 4 Animals

What is EMMETT 4 Animals?

The EMMETT Technique for Animals is an amazingly effective, gentle, safe and easy to apply muscle release therapy. It helps to address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and restrictions, restore a positive emotional / behavioural state and improve the general quality of life.

The EMMETT technique is recognised internationally and was developed by Ross Emmett and is taught in over 26 countries worldwide. It is equally effective on both people and animals.

How it works...

The EMMETT Technique is an understanding of the body’s response to gentle touch. It has been suggested that the body reacts in a similar way to the workings of a touch-screen. Small sensors allow access to the brain via the therapists’ touch. The EMMETT Technique Practitioner can be compared to a body electrician who has the knowledge to locate the critical points and re-set them with the correct stimulation.  The stimulation is registered by the receiver's nervous system and their brain responds by sending new instructions back to the physical state of the localised area.   The result of an EMMETT treatment can often create instantaneous physical changes.


Learning the EMMETT Technique can allow you to discover how this gentle and safe muscle release technique can be used to help address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and restrictions.

Symptoms which may be relieved:

  •  Injuries from sport or accidents
  •  Unbalanced gait/stance
  •  Lead/harness strain
  •  Lower back distress
  •  Inhibited movement/muscle restrictions
  •  Poor performance / behavior changes

The results can be dramatic even for first-time clients. Accurate and fast assessments of imbalances in the body are an integral feature of this technique.

An EMMETT treatment helps to improve recovery from workouts helping competition horses and dogs achieve peak performance, along with addressing lameness, muscle restrictions, saddle soreness, uneven gait and lack of performance.

Through the technique you learn how to notice the sometimes-subtle signs of pain or discomfort that many experienced owners, riders and handlers can fail to identify.

Who can learn the EMMETT Technique?

  •  Existing complementary therapists, veterinary and chiropractic professionals interested in extending their skills.
  •  Horse and dog owners/trainers/handlers and non-therapists wanting to assist their own animals to alleviate pain and discomfort and perform preventative care.

WHAT ABOUT HUMANS... Yes the EMMETT Technique Horse and Dog courses also includes an impressive selection of beneficial human muscle release moves. These moves can help assist the rider and handler.
