EMMETT Muscle Release Technique

The EMMETT Muscle Release is a unique technique created by Ross EMMETT which may be enjoyed by people of all ages, from babies to the elderly. 

This body therapy uses light finger pressure at specific places on the body. It is based on the belief that light touch can trigger relaxation in the soft tissue and reset muscle memory. The therapist may help relieve tension resulting in feelings of improved comfort.
