The EMMETT Technique Practitioner's Course

EMMETT Technique Practitioner training is designed for medical professionals, allied health professionals and non-therapists. People with no previous bodywork experience are also welcome.

All practitioners are encouraged to enhance their existing practice by integrating the EMMETT Technique with their prior training. 

The Chameleon Approach to Body Therapies

What does the course cover?

The Emmett Technique muscle activation points can unlock muscle memory. This activation gives the brain the opportunity to re-evaluate the initial activator that created the neuromuscular problem for that client.

Light pressure sequences are used to desensitise these areas and the effect can be an almost instantaneous result. The Emmett Technique uses language skills and word selection to reprogram the mind and to instil an acceptable attitude. The results can be dramatic even for first time clients.

Who can apply to become a practitioner?

Emmett practitioners are rising from a broad cross-section of the medical profession. This includes Doctors, Nurses, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Occupational Therapists, Massage Therapists, Naturopaths etc... We have seen a rise in Personal Trainers, Professional Athletes, Yoga/Pilates Instructors etc.  

A trained Emmett practitioner is highly adaptable to the needs of their clients. The Emmett Technique offers a valuable addition which helps practitioners more accurately assess and treat a patients' needs, while integrating it with their particular technique. 

We train throughout Australia and around the world so please check the course calendar for further details.

A professional approach to client assessment and treatment enhancements

This seminar provides a missing link in muscle release methods. It follows a sequence of procedures, which will not only benefit your own method and client assessments, but it will also provide clinical improvements using NLP skills. NLP provides the practitioner with the ability to anchor, re-frame and use visual and auditory information collection.

Also included will be:

  • Accurate Client Assessing
  • Improving your treatment results for greater client satisfaction
  • Using "anchors" to create trust and comfort
  • Clinic enhancement ideas to avoid negative anchoring
  • Collection and interpretation of visual/auditory information using NLP skills
  • Professional adaptation to improve client responses and rapport

EMMETT Technique Practitioner Course Structure

The course is divided into two-day learning blocks, called Modules, with 6 Modules in total.  Material covered in the previous Module is reviewed before new work is covered.  This ensures that all participants are up to date and ready to learn new material. Modules 1 & 2 are one day each in duration and always taught as a two-day block. The total course therefore consists of 11 days.

Module 1 & 2 – first day Module 1, second day Module 2

Module 3 – first day review of Modules 1 & 2, second day new Module 3 work

Module 4 – first day review of Module 3, second day new Module 4 work

Module 5 – first day review of Modules 4, second day new Module 5 work

Module 6 – first day review of Module 5, second day new Module 6 work

Module 6 Review – one day

 Modules are generally offered 6 – 8 weeks apart to allow participants to gain real experience with the technique. Therefore, it is usually possible to complete the full course within 12 months.

 Each Module is held over one day normally from 8.30am - 4.30pm. Courses are held across Australia and are offered worldwide. The courses are either taught by Ross Emmett or by his appointed Emmett Instructors.

Emmett Instructors are highly capable Emmett practitioners who have satisfactorily completed training to a high standard within the Emmett Technique and have attended Instructor Training with Ross Emmett.  Emmett Instructors are passionate about teaching the technique and also have extensive experience and have backgrounds in other therapies.

    EMMETT Practitioner (EP) Training

    The EP workshops really do take the EMMETT Technique to a whole new level. The greatest asset of the technique is that Ross is still in full time practise continuing to evolve as a therapist through his treatments. The moves taught during these workshops are not “tip of the triangle stuff” but developments Ross has made since putting together the Modular course. As part of the process in determing the content of an EP course Ross shares his sequences with selected therapists who work with their own clients to make sure the results achieved are constant and reproducible.

    EP1 introduces:

    • The Spinal Balance - where Ross shows us how to integrate the spine for clear communication and stability. Where there is a lack of focus and clarity.
    • Oesophagus Release Sequence for abdominal pain after eating. Also assists pain under the sternum, reflux, and breathing restrictions.
    • Atlas-Axis / Third eye integration.
    • A move to release deep seated hamstring pain and sciatic pain into the leg.
    • Bowel and kidney moves to add to the Lymphatic drainage sequence.
    • A move for deep deltoid pain.
    • Further combinations and cross body moves using Command keys for unwinding and addressing pain and trauma.
    • Further jaw work.

    Here are some anonymous comments we have received:

    "Such an enjoyable 2 days. The course content was a complete game changer for me as a therapist looking for a strategic approach to applying the emmett moves. The principles learned on this course are amazing.Thank you both and of course Ross!!"

    "Brilliant day. Loved the sequences Ross has put together for treaments. Loved being back immersed in Emmett."

    "Throughout the two days the information given was extremely clear, there was plenty of time for discussion/ practice, and there was total focus on the work (nothing irrelevant or off subject). I felt at ease with the instructors and fellow class mates. The room and facilities were of very good standard. And more importantly, the training manual is fantastic. Very Very Pleased! money and time well spent. Delighted with everything. Thank you."

  • Course Full Name: Emmett Professional Level 2
    Course Short Name: EP2
    Course/s to be Completed: M1&2, M3, M4, M5, M6, EP1

    Course Description:

    EP2 introduces:

    • Piriformis / QL combination for lower back cramp and deep seated hip joint pain.
    • Neck / vertebra release for deep neck pain which has not responded to other releases.
    • Back cross over sequence for uneven shoulder height and twisted hips. Very helpful with scoliosis.
    • Further use of the chest – jaw points to improve hearing loss.
    • Gracilis move for deep inner thigh pain.
    • Achilles – heel pain sequences.
    • Further use of the popliteal and knee reflex points with ankle points to free up ankle joint restrictions.
    • Crossovers for acute and unresponsive knee pain.
    • Hearing - for improvement.

    Here are some anonymous comments we have received via Survey Monkey:

    "The pace was just right not hurried and not too slow to loose concentration or focus. The order information became clear at the end, with the concept of emmett and how to put it all together, which was explained in ep1 but the penny dropped in ep2. I always enjoy the emmett courses as everyone is equal regardless of your background and there are no favourites. Well done Sue and Lesley for an excellent course."

    "Love, love! Loved it. It's always a jaw dropping experience. How these small but powerful moves make so much difference. The workshop is taught at just the right pace. Enough time to watch and take on board the new work, then plenty of time to practice. The sequences are invaluable. Something to take right into Clinic, but with the knowledge that you can tweak to suit each client's needs. It is so good to meet other therapists, learn of their experiences and how they use the Emmett Technique in their work. It's a fun, practical and a highly informative couple of days. Just wish EP3 was next month! Can't wait."

    "Could not fault anything - was the best yet - and I have thoroughly enjoyed all previous Emmett courses. Susley must be congratulated on such a fantastic job - the dissemination of sometimes much complicated information in such concise, easy to understand way, with demonstrations too was just great - and has allowed me the confidence to come away keen and eager to use all of these wonderful new moves. It's almost tempting enough to wish clients present with these problems?!? Thank you both so much."

    And this from Jill Clappison Dagless was posted on the private UK Facebook Group page:

    "Thank you for an awesome EP2 you girls are amazing to be able to consolidate, condense & distill all you have learnt into a form that us mere mortals can understand.  This course has again taken our abilities in sharing the possibilities of Emmett Technique to yet another level, which is humbling. Thank you."

    Course Description:

    Client Clinic Day

    Client Clinic Day workshops have been running throughout the UK since 2014 to thunderous applause. Those who attend have found them extremely valuable. Although not a pre-requisite, they are the perfect link between the Module course (1-6) and the EP courses and a really good opportunity to "get inside Ross' head" and hear how he thinks when he puts together his treatments. 

    As a result of frequent requests by EMMETT Practitioners, Ross has packed this one-day workshop full of short "possible" sequences to address typical problem areas, so commonly seen in clincial practise. These sequences are the ones Ross has found to be "gold lotto" winners". There are sequences for necks, shoulders, lower leg, bladder, knee, foot flexion, lower back, forearm and grip, and pregnancy.  

    The workshop will introduce you to the 5±2 moves concept, and the understanding of "preparation moves", "correction moves" and "stabilization moves". These short sequences take between 7 - 15 minutes to perform - job done! The sequences covered will be a huge help when faced with the challenge of correcting a client's specific issue FAST!

    There are also longer "maintenance" treatment sequences for your regular clients. Sequences which utilise all you know to  "dance around the body" and create a relaxing full body session for your regular maintenance clients. 

    Here is a sample of the feedback we have received about this valuable workshop:

    "I have attended the client clinic day and found it to be the part of the EMMETT training that really puts the meat on the bones. You really learn the value of how to put a sequence of corrections together of this amazing therapy to treat your clients. You learn about how to set up a treatment to succeed before you even start the first correction. I cannot recommend this day enough, you can learn the moves but knowing how to apply them takes it to the next level." Tony Sherry

    "I loved the Client Day ... although I had started to create a mix of moves on clients ... the day confirmed the effectiveness of this.  Also ... that often less is more ...  less moves often creating the best results!  Was an invaluable day, Emmett in a more creative, intuitive form.  Constantly learning .... and constantly being amazed by this fab work." Fiona Davies

    "Client Clinic day is invaluable because it pulls the six modules together and helps you to start thinking and working with an EMMETT BRAIN! Not to be missed!!! Great idea! I loved this part of the course." Jennifer Adamson Farrell

    "This is a fabulous day, brilliantly presented, to consolidate how to put Emmett moves together to put the Emmett Technique in its rightful place as a stand-alone therapy. This very useful day covers formulating treatments for 'firefighting' pain and gives suggested formats for maintenance therapy." Anne Mundkur

    "The Clinic day provided inspiration for me to be the very best that therapist that I could be."  Joan George

    These workshops are for therapists who want to fix issues like Ross does - quickly!
