FAQ about Bow-EMM Therapy
What is Bow-EMM Therapy?
We combine Ross Emmett's EMMETT Technique and Tom Bowen Therapy, we call it Bow-EMM Therapy.
We individually tailor it to address your unique needs, providing a gentle effective therapy, to ease tension in muscle groups, to ease pain & discomfort.
EMMETT Technique is a safe, simple therapy using light finger pressure, to release muscle tension, to address pain & discomfort, to improve movement restrictions, & to restore balance & stability
Bowen Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive therapy we usually use to relax the whole body, releasing areas of tension & promoting the bodies natural healing abilities.
As Bow-EMM Therapy we use both therapies in any combination to achieve a positive difference for you during your session
What is EMMETT Technique?
The EMMETT Technique is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissue of the body, and the therapist may help relieve tensions resulting in feelings of improved comfort within the body.
It may be enjoyed by people of all ages, from babies to the elderly. Many people find they feel more at ease within their body and emotional well-being is enhanced.
The relaxing nature of the technique results in people reporting typical responses such as:
- a sense of lightness within their body
What is Bowen Therapy?
We use Tom Bowen Therapy which is Ross Emmett's understanding of Tom Bowen's basic technique as it was originally taught during the early Australian workshops in 1987/8
TBT comprises a series of gentle moves, which encourages your body the opportunity to self correct and relax, whilst allowing us to assess your body for tensions. The use of small time delays allow your brain/body to re-evaluate and may result in release of tension and a state of body relaxation.
Who is Bow-EMM for?
Bow-EMM is for anyone who is experiencing pain & discomfort or restriction of movement. Bow-EMM is so gentle that we can use it on all ages from newborn to the elderly.
If you experience pain, whether from sports activities, work (either heavy or repetitive) or health issues, especially if you just put them down to 'aging' or 'old injuries' you may find Bow-EMM beneficial.
Using EMMETT Technique is especially beneficial because the results are often improved with movement and work, so you can safely add Bow-EMM into a rigorous training or active work schedule.
Bow-EMM is also great as ‘first aid’ to help recover quickly from some of life’s mishaps or simply when you've ‘overdone it’ - ask us about learning some EMMETT Technique 'first-aid' releases on the EMM-Tech course
A whole body Bow-EMM session is usually a very relaxing experience. We also offer EMMETT Technique sequences that may be beneficial for sinus congestion and the lymphatics, which are very quick and also quite relaxing.
About a Bow-EMM session
Bow-EMM is usually applied through light weight clothing or directly on skin, with the client be standing, seated or lying down on a therapy couch.
Most sessions are around 20-30 minutes, however sometimes only a few minutes is needed and occasionally over 30 minutes.
Bow-EMM is a very portable therapy, because a therapy couch is not essential, and is useful where clients may have mobility issues.
Another result of combining techniques seems to be fewer initial sessions for relief, sometimes only one or two, and longer between maintenance sessions, making Bow-EMM your 'goto' affordable therapy.
What does Bow-EMM treat?
Bow-EMM therapy, including EMMETT Technique and Bowen therapy, does not directly treat any condition and is NOT intended to replace or substitute any medical advice or treatment.
We recommend you consult your own General Practitioner or health care professional about any health concerns or issues.

About Ross Emmett
Ross Emmett is a remarkable Australian with an unique set of abilities (some might call it a gift) as a therapist and practitioner; he’s also been an instructor of massage & Bowen therapy, so it’s no surprise that he wants to share the wealth of knowledge about his own very unique technique now known as EMMETT Technique
In the video below Ross Emmett is talking about and demonstrating his technique. This was filmed at a talk about EMM-Tech in Wales at a Social Care Expo, so most of the audience are involved in caring & nursing professions
Ross’s time in Mt Isa, serving clients who had come in from the remote Australian outback for relief of pain, encouraged Ross to evolve fast, effective ways of relieving pain that also gave long-term relief - these Ross now teaches as EMMETT Technique - the chameleon approach to the body.
Ross also taught some of the most useful of these methods to clients in very remote areas, such-as cattle stations, mines or isolated communities, so they could be used as ‘first-aid’ and self help - these have become the EMM-Tech Course which can be learned by anybody to help ease pain & discomfort. <more about EMM-Tech here>
Drawing on having been a senior instructor of Bowen Therapy (1997-2006) and years of practical experience, Ross now also teaches his own understanding and interpretation of Bowen Technique as Tom Bowen’s Therapy 101 (TBT)
Ross positively encourages therapists to integrate EMMETT Technique with their other therapies, to enhance their outcomes by adapting each session to best suit every individual client, so also holds courses in the ways to integrate EMMETT Technique with other therapies including TBT
