Bow-EMM Therapy

We combine bodywork aiming to restore the balance and proper function of the musculoskeletal system and soft tissues, such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Using these light pressure techniques we aim to reduce pain, increase circulation, and improve mobility, which can lead to improved overall health and well-being.

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.
Bowen Therapy consists of a series of gentle moves, which allows the therapist to assess the muscle tissue for inconsistencies whilst giving the body opportunity to self correct and relax muscles .


Full body or targeted session

We keep it simple offering a full body session, which can be used as needed or for regular wellbeing maintenance, or a single issue targeted session.


Southsea appointments

Appointments available at The Grove Centre, an Accessible room in the heart of Southsea, with nearby parking.


What our clients say

‘Give it a go..’

“Well what can I say – I have been visiting Jill for months and I was having problems with both feet and my knee and at some points I could not walk and sometimes I had to use a walking stick due to the pain. I was told about Jill and Paul, paid her a visit and I could not believe the results I got with a couple of visits. I now go and see Jill as often as I can to keep up the work she has done and I am pain free and can walk for miles which is something I could not have done before.

Believe me when I say GIVE IT A Go, you will be surprised.!”

back pain eased

I’ve suffered from back pain for ages and I’m due to have lumber injections in a few months. I see a physio twice a month and also an osteopath once a month but my pain is often unbearable (especially nerve pain) I was very sceptical about alternative therapy like this, but thought it was worth a try so visited Jill just under a week ago. Even during the therapy I found it hard to believe some of the things she was doing would help but I can honestly say even though my backs not cured (I didn’t expect it to be) It’s not felt this good in around a year.
So if you’re really struggling like I was I’d highly recommend giving this therapy a try.

LISA WOOD, Google review

When I first heard of Bow-EMM Therapy I wasn’t sure what to think and if it would help me. I have now had many sessions and it’s just amazing! I suffer from lower back pain and a very painful right hip and this therapy has helped me so much. After my first session I actually felt taller! Jill and Paul are very caring and experienced therapists and I can’t recommend them highly enough.
