Symbiotics Emmett Therapy for Dogs

About Emmett for Dogs

The EMMETT therapy for dogs is based on a light-touch myofascial release 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.

The Emmett technique has been developed over a number or years by Ross Emmett who resides in Australia and has been a Remedial Practitioner since 1980. It is an internationally recognised technique that is taught in over 35 countries globally. It has been thoroughly observed that this Canine light touch Therapy, due to an increase in comfort, improves the mobility and behaviour of dogs after receiving the therapy.
