Emmett Therapy

WHAT IS EMMETT TECHNIQUE?

The Emmett Technique is a powerful and unique body therapy which offers an alternative treatment to ease pain and discomfort and may benefit many other conditions. Immediate results often occur.

The treatment can be done fully clothed and incorporates a gentle physical release of muscle groups whilst using a verbal approach to create attitude change.

Emmett Therapy involves the application of light pressure at specific points and in sequences that enable the gentle physical release of muscle groups.

What if you use other therapies?

The technique works in conjunction with all therapies or can be used on its own. The technique often allows other therapies to work more efficiently. Client comfort and accurate assessment are important elements of this therapy.

What clients have said about Emmett.

“I suffered from a painful shoulder for a few months, however, when it became too painful to drive the car I contemplated surgery. I was recommended to Colleen by a relative of mine. Being a medical practitioner I was rather sceptical about this treatment but it sounded better than surgery. After the first treatment my range of movement of my arm doubled to what it was and I was able to drive home. After my second treatment I had full movement of my arm with very minimal pain. It is now nearly three months since this last treatment and I have had no further trouble. What a way to avoid surgery and I am very grateful to you for what you have achieved. At the age of 84 I thought nothing but surgery would fix me. Thanking you Colleen.”  Ron Brown

“Colleen Kelly has treated me for the past 5 months.  I have severe Fibromyalgia Syndrome and have been housebound, mostly bedbound for years.  I don’t know how Emmett works, but in conjunction with regular physio, I really feel it has made a difference.  On two occasions the extreme knotted pain in my neck eased dramatically while being treated.  And my TMJ and inner ear pain from long term inner ear inflammation, while still there, the intensity has reduced with Emmett treatment.  Colleen is professional, generous, and a natural born healer.  My illness is very difficult to treat but I have found relief from Emmett therapy – when even strong painkillers don’t help.  Thank you Colleen.” Shiloh Moore

“For several years I have been receiving treatment from Colleen for various issues. She has treated me and done wonders for my neck pain, hip issues, lower back pain and sciatica. I have regular appointments with Colleen and view these as my “tune ups”. During my recent pregnancy, Colleen “fixed me” after not being able to walk from sciatica. She is my secret weapon in keeping my body flowing in harmony. Colleen is very intuitive about what treatments I need. I’d be lost without her.” Janine Odlin


“Colleen is a passionate practitioner of Emmett. Her warm and caring nature shines through her sessions and contributes to the overall sense of well-being you experience after an Emmett treatment.
To maintain a sense of well-being I ensure I maintain regular Emmett sessions with Colleen.” Maria Kelly


When I was expecting our first child, my husband gave me a gift of four visits to see Colleen, who practises Bowen and Emmett Therapies. I had three of those visits before the birth of our little girl, Olivia. Colleen was able to help relieve the back and neck pains I was experiencing. She worked on me to assist my body with the huge changes it was going through. I was very quick to recover from the birth and I feel this was due to the treatments from Colleen.

After the birth I went to Colleen to help with my balance and my shoulder and neck pain from carrying and feeding Olivia. Within one session I felt my body was aligned again. She also gave a quick treatment on Olivia to release her neck as she was having trouble feeding. It is amazing how quickly the Emmett Therapy can relieve pain and fix any ailment. Thanks Colleen, I look forward to seeing you with my next pregnancy.”

“I went to Colleen 3 years ago for chronic back, neck and leg/feet problems.  The benefits were immediately apparent.  After only a couple of treatments my back and neck were pain free and I regained flexibility and freedom of movement in all areas.  I choose to see Colleen once a month as a maintenance and preventative measure and highly recommend her and her treatments.”

“My first contact with Colleen and her healing skills was about 4 years ago.  I had a chronic back problem and I started experiencing very acute spasms in my lower back.  A friend contacted Colleen, who came to my house as I couldn’t drive. 

 Colleen quickly determined that I would greatly benefit from Emmett therapy and she proceeded to gently touch specific areas of my lower back, while I was still standing, and miraculously,  within 10 minutes, the pain disappeared and I was able to move freely again.. 

Colleen suggested that I might be helped by regular maintenance treatments, which I did for a while.  But, as happens in our busy lives, I stopped. The spasms occurred again 9 months later. I now have six-weekly maintenance and my back has never felt stronger. 

Colleen is thorough in her knowledge of the body and its movements.  She is gentle and extremely professional and I feel that Emmett therapy will be an important part of my life.

Thank you Colleen for relieving me of such horrible pain.”
