The Emmett Technique, Energy Healing and the Tools I use!
There are many modalities out there in the world under the Umbrella of Energy Healing and Body Work. Below I share with you what I have aligned with and use for my bodywork and energy healing sessions.
The Emmett Technique
The Emmett Technique is a safe and simple muscle release therapy developed by Remedial Therapist Ross Emmett. It is used to address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and can restore a positive emotional state. The Emmett Technique is a special form of body therapy that involves application of light finger pressure at specific points. These are in sequences that enable gentle releases for common problems which include neck, shoulder, back pain and general balance and stability. In the science of Critical Point Analysis it is identified that in any highly complex system there is a specific, critical point at which the smallest input will result in the greatest change, where the least force exerts the greatest effect (for example a light touch on a small cog can halt the largest engine). It is with this understanding that the Emmett Technique influences the most complex system known – the human body. Working within this principle the Emmett Technique is able to affect two types of receptors, sensory and muscular, which may also activate an emotional state.
Reiki is a hands on universal energy channelled through the practitioner into the client to restore physical and emotional wellbeing. In a standard treatment you will lay on a massage table but treatments can also be given while you are seated or even standing. You remain fully clothed. I place my hands on or near your body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the stomach, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on your needs. The hands are held in place for three to ten minutes depending on how much Reiki you need at each position. What you can expect during a Reiki treatment varies. However, feelings of deep relaxation are usually felt by all. In addition, many feel a wonderful radiance that flows through and around you. As the Reiki energy encourages you to let go of all tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, which allows a state of peace and well-being is experienced. You may drift off to sleep or feel an outer body experience. At the end of the treatment, you will feel refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.
The Carolyn Cooper SimplyHealed MethodTM is a powerful method of healing that clears negative emotions on a mental, emotional and physical level in an easy, non-invasive way. It can release the stress of any kind whether it be years of abuse or daily things that tend to overwhelm our emotional circuitry. During a session, SimplyHealed can clear many issues in a graceful, painless way. Because all 7 energy systems of the body are integrated, change is effective and powerful. In addition, through the SimplyHealed Method, flaws in the energetic DNA can be quickly located and repaired, some of which have been in the lineage for many generations. Depression, phobias, addictions, fears, ill health, and even money problems are just a few of the issues that get passed down through the genetic code. With SimplyHealed, we can trace it back to its origin and clear it for our lineage and ourselves. Just as we are recipients of our ancestors’ physical DNA, we also carry their emotional DNA. Many times we are upset by something and think to ourselves, “Why does that trigger me so much?” Well, good news! Sometimes it’s not even our issue! If we have an ancestor who went through trauma or had a particular negative belief pattern and we inherited that emotional tendency, then when we are presented with certain life situations it seems to be magnified for us. The energy shifts immediately with the integration, like a light switching on in a dark room. Most people report that they feel much “lighter” after the session. That is because they literally are! Emotions such as depression, anger, guilt, etc. have a very low vibration. Once released, the void where those emotions were formerly held is automatically filled with light, truth, love, forgiveness and joy—which are all very high vibrationally. With some issues, you will immediately notice they are no longer there because you are not worried about them anymore. That worry is replaced by peace. With other issues, although the energetic changes are in place, you may not be in a situation where you recognise the change right away.
Crystals have been used throughout history for healing. Crystals work with our energy field and can move, absorb, focus, direct and diffuse energy within our bodies. Crystal healing is basically the ‘laying on’ of stones onto the body using the Chakras as a guide in order to effect healing and change. Crystals have a very high vibration that magnifies energy, they are also capable of absorbing and enhancing energy. Crystals can be programmed to assist us in almost anything. They are incredibly powerful and so should always be used with respect and good intentions. Crystals are alive like everything else in the universe vibrating at different levels and have certain characteristics that make them wonderful allies to us. In crystal healing, I work in partnership with them by placing them on or near the body in order to effect healing change. They do this by allowing their vibration to effect change in the energy centres of the chakras, clearing out any negativity and allowing them to function at optimal capacity. Crystals work with us to restore that balance most needed in our bodies for our health and wellbeing. One of my most favourite tools.
Flower Essences are produced by imprinting a flower’s unique vibrational healing signature onto the carrier solution and are used to treat imbalances at a higher level, bringing about emotional and spiritual balance and well being in the whole person. For thousands of years Australian Aborigines have used flowers to heal emotional imbalances and physical injuries. Flower Essences were also used in Ancient Egypt, as well as India, Asia, Europe and South America. The earliest European recorded use of Flower Essences was by Abbess Hildegard von Bingen in the twelfth century. This system of healing was rediscovered and popularised eighty years ago by Dr. Edward Bach with his use of English flowering plants. Naturopath, Ian White, a 5th generation Australian herbalist, has further developed this method using plants from all over Australia. Ian grew up in the bush and was taught from an early age the healing power of Australian plants. He has spent many years travelling Australia researching and developing a range of 69 specific Bush Essences. I use the Flower Essences energetically in my healing sessions when guided and prescribe dosage bottles for clients if needed to take home. This is also something that can be done as a stand alone session, with a bottle prescribed for clients to take home.
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and their beautiful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices. Essential oils can be used for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness, which is why I use them in my space and throughout my sessions.
