Regional Interest Group (RIG) in Somerset recently invited Liz James
to run a workshop for their members. Liz is an Emm-Tech tutor,
Bowen and Emmett Practitioner and Nutritional Therapist based in
Somerset. Liz had come along to one of our regular RIG meetings to
explain a little about Emm-Tech.
about the usefulness of the Emm-Tech work, and how it could be used
as a "stand-alone" technique by people such as fitness instructors,
sports coaches and carers who would find it useful in their work
environment. She also explained how it can easily be used as an
"add-on" by therapists to augment other modalities. The idea
appealed to all of us, and we invited Liz to hold a one-day workshop
We had an
information-packed day with constant hands-on practice, lots of
laughs and not a few cakes! Emm-Tech offered all of us some new
resources to help with common but sometimes annoyingly
hard-to-resolve problems such as neck and shoulder problems, knee
and leg discomfort and poor balance.
We all felt we
had gained significant new "tools in the toolbox" and were delighted
to be able to bring these into our therapy work. And in case the
info we had been taught deserted us, just when we needed it most, we
also received a useful course manual and an excellent DVD showing
Ross Emmett demonstrating the moves himself.
Liz is a natural
teacher, very well-informed and well organised. The whole day went
at a cracking pace, with never a dull moment. If you are looking
for an interesting new slant on your treatment techniques, and an
excellent workshop, I'm sure the whole Mendop RIG would highly
recommend an Emm-Tech day. It's not often such a busy day is such a
lot of fun!
