Emmett Technique- Light Touch, Heavy Results

Written by Emma Tommasini

WHAT IS EMMETT TECHNIQUE?

Emmett Technique is an internationally recognised muscle release therapy designed by therapist Ross Emmett to provide fast relief from pain and discomfort. The Emmett Technique uses a combination of light pressure and gentle switches to release specific muscle groups which will enable the person’s body to return to its balanced state

HOW DOES THE EMMETT TECHNIQUE WORK?

The Emmett Technique is an understanding of the response of the human body to light touch. Also, it suggests that the body reacts in a similar way to the functions of a touch-screen device. The small sensors allow access to the brain through the gentle touch of the qualified therapist. Aside from directly influencing muscle action, these points may also have an emotional and memory attachment.

Farewell Ross....For Now!

Written by Megan Colwell

Today we say farewell to an absolute gentleman as he embarks on a break from Townsville to transition to the Gold Coast… Hopefully short term!

The nice part is that you are chasing your dreams. And you will now have lots of time to make all your dreams come true. The bad part is how much we will miss the pleasurable experience of working with you. We wish you the all the best and thank you for your years of dedication, enthusiasm and team spirit.

Working with you for the past 10 years has been a joy! We will miss seeing you every day as will your clients, whom I know you consider as family.  You have always been a hard worker and a terrific team member. No one is more deserving of this break than you.  We hope that you have an inbuilt boomerang that knows to return home.

Why Your Dad Deserves a Massage This Father’s Day

Written by Emma Tommasini

A recent article in Men’s Health magazine discusses the many benefits of massage therapy and how men in particular can benefit from regular sessions. However, the typical guy tends to ignore things like going to the doctor – let alone indulging themselves with a massage treatment.  All too often, they’re spending long hours at the office, working out in the garden or coaching the kids footy team without taking time for themselves.

So, it’s up to us – their sons, daughters, wives, partners – to do it for them.  After all, we think dads deserve it.  The benefits are undeniable.

Oncology Massage Testimonial

Written by Emma Tommasini

 

Question 1:  Being diagnosed with and treated for cancer can be scary, painful and isolating, thinking back can you remember how you felt after your first Oncology massage with Leanne?

I felt blessed as my body had been used to massages before cancer. Then it felt invaded by poking and prodding. This was so gentle that I felt the response immediately. 

 

Question 2: In what ways was massage helpful while you were going through treatment? 

The massages began so gently and it was what my body craved after so many needles and treatment. Leanne was wonderful and understanding and knew what level to begin with. Each subsequent appt, she applied a slightly firmer pressure. My body began to feel human again.
