Biomechanical efficiency is the degree to which a limb or musculotendinous unit (muscle and tendon tissue) is moving to its maximum performance and potential.

Emmett therapy is so much more than horse massage and maximises biomechanial efficiency...

The Emmett technique is a light touch neuromuscular therapy and your horse will actively participate in the process of its own muscle correction and rehabilitation.

During the last several decades, neuromuscular therapy has emerged as a significant methodology for assessing, treating and preventing soft tissue injuries and chronic pain. technical info here

Transform your horse with this pain-free equine muscle treatment.

Watch this 2 minute before and after treatment case study...

The Emmett technique treats lameness, saddle soreness, uneven gait and lack of performance, improves recovery from workouts and helps horses achieve peak performance.

It will also improve the skin and coat of your horse.

  • Treatment involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points.

  • The points are not the same as traditional trigger points or acupressure points or any other points described in any other therapy.

  • The pressure required to stimulate the points does not need to be firm or painful. “no pain no gain” has no place in the Emmett philosophy.

How does it work?

It is suggested that the Emmett technique may interact with the body as described in the science of  "Critical Point Analysis" which identifies that:

In any highly complex system there is a specific, critical point at which the smallest input will result in the greatest change.

For example, a light touch on a small cog can halt the largest engine.

Re-setting critical points.

The Emmett therapist can be compared to a body electrician who has the knowledge to locate these critical points and re-set them with the correct stimulation.

The stimulation is registered by the receiver’s nervous system and their brain responds by sending new instructions back to affect the physical state of the localized area.

The result of a treatment is often instantaneous physical change.

You will not realise how sore or tense your horse is until you see how good he can be!

Horse massage or equine massage, which are the same, is nice but your horse wants more.

Your horse will enjoy deep releases of muscle tightness, stress and toxins like never before.

Additionally, horses frequently experience body shape, behaviour changes and injury recovery as a result of Emmett therapy such as:

  • Accelerated injury recovery
  • Consistently higher levels of performance with regular treatments
  • Prevention/minimisation of strains and stress
  • Behavioural problems corrected
  • Not tracking up, uneven stride
  • Balance issues and incorrect strides
  • Sore or cold back, girth issues
  • Lymphatic issues
  • Difficult to shoe
  • Head shyness
  • Improved top line
  • Greater suppleness
  • Easier and freer movement
  • Standing still easier, less fidgeting
  • Standing squarer
  • No more biting or nipping
  • No more girth/cold back issues

Results will vary from horse to horse depending on their needs and responses. However...

One thing is for sure, your horse will always benefit from Emmett therapy. It is not possible for treatment to have no impact.

Irregularities of gait often reveal matters of dysfunction rather than lameness, this therapy can eliminate it or improve it significantly.

This dysfunction is common and why it is important to have a body work programme in place for your horse.

Ross Emmett, founder, explains the Emmett Technique

What Clients Say:-

Kim Noble, Endurance Ride State Champion:-The Emmett Technique has definitely helped with the achievement of endurance ride results, I recommend it for any horse or pony.

Teegan Burke, Riddells Creek:- The Emmett Therapy was excellent and I would be happy to recommend this service anyone. As a result of the therapy my horse added top line, as well as not being as sunken through his flanks. He also had more free movement as he was very stiff before.

Chris Sievers, Lauriston Vic. – EA/NCAS Coach and Dressage B level Judge: Young Horse Judge and Judge Mentor:- We rode our horses today after the Emmett horse muscle therapy. Starting with some in hand work on our pony to loosen the poll and jaw and OMG we have a new horse; so much softer on front, more supple in flexion and just floating in paces.

The 5yo novice level horse was just superb too, even one of the spectators commented on how great she was going;
and the PSTG training mare was a dream. Beautiful clean flying changes and so happy to be in front of the leg but waiting and harmonious. Lots of white foam in her mouth with much relaxed snorting and softness over the back. 

A big thank you for the muscle therapy you provided for our horses, it has made such a difference.
