The EMMETT Technique 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 that can increase range of movement and improve mobility of people, dogs, horses and other animals.



About Us


Hi my name is Hannah Staples i am an Emmett Therapist for humans, horses and hounds.  i have always liked animals and worked with horses for over thirty years.  In that time have needed from time to time a physio or massage therapy for my horses and have always loved the results.  A few years ago I was at  a show  where an Emmett Therapist had a stand i was so impressed that i decided to qualify myself as a therapist.  i first qualified for horses and was stunned at the results of gentle finger pressure points as well as how calm and relaxed the horses were.  They loved it.  I then moved on to qualify as a therapist with both dogs and people and found the techniques worked just as well with both people and dogs.

Emmett therapy was started by an Australian man named Ross Emmett.  He started developing the Emmett technique over 35 yrs ago.

He had been a qualified instructor of Therapeutic Massage since 1983 and was a senior instructor of Bowen Therapy for 8 years.  This, coupled with his background with animals and training in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, culminated in the evolution of the EMMETT Technique.

The technique Ross developed is widely recognised as an amazingly gentle, safe and simple to apply muscle release therapy based on an understanding of the body’s response to light touch.


 EMMETT Technique is a unique non invasive amazing and gentle  form of body therapy for  people.  Light  finger touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissue, and the therapist may help relieve tension or pain, resulting in feelings of improved comfort within the body.
 The relaxing nature of the technique results in people reporting typical responses such as: improved comfort & suppleness for injured areas or discomfort,
more restful sleep,
and enhanced mood
areas which can be treated include back, abdomen, hips, legs, feet, knees, shoulders, arms, and neck.
Emmett Therapy can also help increased range of movement in the affected area.
The horse needs to be pain free and balanced to be able to cope with a rider.  The Emmett Therapy is a way of getting a horse to this state.
The horse responds almost instantly to the soft touches and many seem to go into a blissful doze.  Relaxing the horses means that the therapy works well with the tension gone. Horses are very sensitive and you can quickly see the change in their bodies.
 Symptoms that may be assisted include
various injuries and lameness,
emotional problems,
decreased suppleness,
changes in performance
The Emmett Technique is used to address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and restrictions, restore a positive emotional  or behavioural state and improve the quality of life.  It  is helpful with dogs that have long term pain from injuries or old age.
The therapy helps release endorphins which are natural pain relieving hormones that can ease discomfort and provide a feeling of relaxation.
Symptoms that it may assist are:
pain or discomfort after accident or illness,
general mobility issues,
arthritis and stiffness in older dogs,
and a nervous dog can be helped into a calmer state 
Our Services





"I am a disabled person.  Hannah Staples came to our house and her practices her therapy on my back.  I am in constant extreme pain 

After my Treatment I am  not pain-free but the level of pain is greatly reduced.



"Hannah has recently carried out two treatments on me. I have had limited movement of my neck for some time. Twisting it to left and right was difficult. The treatment on my neck gave me much more flexibility and this continued to improve over the next day or so. I also have problems with my right knee, which can become quite painful and swollen. The treatment on this was quite dramatic. I felt an immediate relief and easing of movement.  I would certainly recommend Emmett treatments."
