Emmett for Dogs

The EMMETT Technique is a unique form of body relaxation therapy, involving the application of light finger pressure at specific points.  It is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissues of the body, and that the therapist may thereby help relieve areas of tension.

The result is often instantaneous feelings of greater comfort with a more relaxed and balanced appearance. 

As with massage, Emmett Technique may assist by:

  • Maintaining balance within the body to enhance and maintain well being, performance and quality of life
  • Helping with recovery or rehabilitation
  • Releasing tension and aiding relaxation
  • Aiding flexibility and range of movement

  • Developing the relationship between you and your dog
  • Easing stiffness, tight joints and potential compensatory tension caused by arthritis or injury 
  • Assisting with desensitisation issues 
  • Aiding proprioception/awareness of areas of the body
