Emmett Therapy and Reiki Healing

The EMMETT therapy for dogs is based on a gentle, light-touch, myofascial muscle therapy, that resets the muscle memory to release tension and stiffness. This therapy has been shown to ease pain and discomfort, release stress or anxiety, increase movement, and improve quality of life. It can be used on its own, or to compliment other therapies and treatments.

Immediate results have been observed, although each dog is different and with some it can take minutes or hours to take effect, as releasing one muscle can have a domino effect that alters the rest of the body.

It is very gentle and great for dogs of all ages, including elderly canines, due to its gentle nature and is best for dogs who need relief from certain kinds of restrictions such as subtle pain and discomfort.

Emmett is an internationally recognised technique that is taught in over 35 countries globally. It has been thoroughly observed that this light touch therapy, improves the mobility, energy and behaviour of dogs after receiving the therapy.

  • Pain Relief from Sports or Accidents
    If your dog has been in an accident, or has had a sport related injury, this therapy gently relieves pain and restrictions through gentle, light pressure at specific points.
  • Lead and/or Harness Strain
    Dogs often pull on their leads and harnesses encourage pulling. This causes strain on their bodies in a way that we may not realise, and can be a cause of pain and discomfort, however subtle it may be.
  • Lower Back Discomfort
    Senior dogs, particularly develop pain in their lower back. This light touch technique is a very gentle and simple way to relieve such tension.
  • Unbalanced Gait or Stance
    An unbalanced gait can be a trigger for more problems down the line, by placing strain on the joints and muscles. This non-invasive technique can make dramatic changes to gait and stance enabling the dogs to move more balanced and fluidly. It is also an effective preventative treatment. It is great for any dogs that would benefit from moving more fluidly.
  • Performance Improvement
    This simple technique ultimately helps agility, sports and working dogs so they can have more freedom in movement and achieve their highest potential in performance.
  • Behaviour
    Stress is held in the body and dogs that are stress and pain-free behave better.


Reiki, (pronounced Ray-kee) is derived from the Japanese words rei, meaning universal, and kei, meaning life energy.

A non evasive, gentle Japanese healing form, and complementary energy therapy, developed by Mikao Usui. It is based on the principle that everything in the universe consists of energy that flows around and through living beings. It is believed that disruption to this energy may cause health problems and practitioners seek to restore the balance of the energy flow.
