The Bowen Technique is a gentle therapy that is applied to areas of the body, using thumbs and fingers in a specific process or order.
The move is a rolling-type move of the thumbs and forefingers, and is designed to stimulate nerve pathways which allow a ‘conversation’ to take place between different nervous systems of the body. Between each set of moves I step back to allow the communication process to take place. These breaks increase the effectiveness of each subsequent set of moves.
The move does not slide or flick over the surface of the skin, but uses the slack in the overlying skin to move over the underlying tissue, so each move covers a small area, defined by how far an individual’s skin can move over a targeted area.
Bowen is very gentle and suitable for all ages.
The EMMETT Technique is a unique form of body therapy.
It involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points, referred to as “Emmett points”.
The points are not the same as traditional trigger points or acupressure points or any other points described in any other therapy.
The pressure required to stimulate the EMMETT points does not need to be firm or painful. “No pain no gain” has no place in EMMETT Technique philosophy.
The EMMETT Therapist is skilled in the art of applying:
• the right amount of pressure
• in the right direction
• for the right amount of time
It is this combination of elements, unique to each individual, which creates the desired physical change.
Although often combined with other techniques, the EMMETT Technique is an efficient and effective therapy on its own.
What does an EMMETT treatment involve?
• Clients can be treated seated, standing or lying down.
• It can be a standalone treatment or combined with other techniques.
• The treatment can be applied directly to the skin or done through clothing.
• Sessions can last anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes if the EMMETT Technique is used alone – longer if combined with a relaxing massage or other modality.
