I see a lady for Personal training who has fibromyalgia and is in pain most of the time. Since I have introduced EMMETT to her she can now have a pain free afternoon and evening. Most of her issues are in the upper body and so we have concentrated on the shoulder, neck and arms move with psoas to balance. The pain relief can often be instant, in some cases, the discomfort is radically reduced. It introduces a better quality of life and enables her to enjoy her activities more. As we work more the moves have more effect and her confidence (and smile) grows.

I also work with an elderly gentleman who has ataxia which affects his gait and balance. This greatly impacts his day to day activity and reduces his confidence to get around primarily for fear of falling. I have introduced EMMETT foot balance, calf release and psoas to him. The results regarding balance have been amazing. He has gone from a wobble to standing on one leg! Imagine what that has done to his confidence. Admittedly he needs regular work and we do personal training together but we are both impressed with the results. He calls me his “witch” and in this context, I really don’t mind.
