Gwyn continues to offer training on a freelance basis at both foundation and advanced levels, and is particularly keen to promote Emmett training for therapists and complete beginners to therapy.
Gwyn states, ‘I am so excited to be joining the Wellness Centre practice. This is a wonderful opportunity to welcome clients old and new. My philosophy remains that with careful planning and adjustments to therapy interventions, all clients, no matter how complex their condition, can benefit from complementary therapies. Evidence shows that when we have the opportunity to relax and nurture ourselves, the body will create its own healing environment to soothe to ease pain and distress and generate positive benefits for mind, body and soul.’
Gwyn will be offering EMMETT Technique within her treatment range which is a muscle release therapy used to address pain issues and discomfort. It is a non invasive technique which does not require massage cream, oil, manipulations, hard pressure or cracking therefore making it ideal for those who are more frail, aren’t suitable for massage, or have significant pain.
The results from an Emmett Treatment are often instantaneous and change in moblity and pain relief can be quite dramatic. Gwyn also offers Emmett Lymphatic drainage treatments, designed to give the body an overall boost and refresh but particularly helpful when suffering with congestion of any form.
Further information about how Emmett Technique may help a wide range of problems and a demo video of the therapy in action can be found at: https://www.emmett-uk.co.uk
