Martina Hinds


I practise both The Bowen Technique and The EMMETT Technique and am registered with the Bowen Therapists Professional Association and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. My initial Bowen training was with European College of Bowen Studies in 2006 but over the years my Bowen practice has evolved as a result of incorporating different variants of Bowen.

After training in Fascia Bowen in 2011, I set up one of the first Bowen Children’s Clinic in the North East treating children with health-related issues and disabilities, mainly spectrum disorders; tourettes; cerebral palsy; asthma; stress and bed wetting.

I added the EMMETT Technique into my therapy toolkit in 2014 and the additional EMMETT head-to-toe lymphatic drainage treatment which is a very gentle, non-invasive and relaxing treatment and a favourite with many of my clients. EMMETT is an ‘Outcome Focused Therapy’ using a combination of direct pressure and gentle switches to release specific muscle groups, unlocking muscle memory allowing your body to return to a state of balance. Most clients recognise improvements in pain levels and range of movement before leaving clinic.

A simple way of explaining how Emmett moves work on the body is to use the analogy of electrics tripping out. Imagine the body as an electrical circuit. Overworked muscles overload and trip out and need a reset switch to restore normal functionality.

The EMMETT Lymphatic Drainage method provides a very gentle and deeply relaxing treatment which assists the body in clearing toxins and reducing fluid retention. The EMMETT method is non-invasive or painful. Regular treatments may assist clients choosing to seek an integrative approach to managing their own health issues such as:


  • Anxiety
  • Congestion
  • Deep relaxation
  • Diabetes support
  • Fluid retention
  • Lack of energy
  • Low Immunity
  • Post viral / bacterial infection
  • Sinus conditions
  • Sluggish Bowls
  • Sluggish lymphatic system


EMMETT and Bowen may help you overcome physical discomfort, tension, and pain or manage a chronic health condition. These gentle and non-invasive therapies could help you get out of pain and back into action.

Whilst running the children’s’ clinic I developed an interest in researching the gut-brain link (mainly in spectrum disorder children) and this knowledge I share with families trying to cope or improve the quality of life for their children and family.

I feel blessed to have the opportunity to practice Bowen and EMMETT. It’s a joy and a pleasure to treat a client and for them to leave my clinic feeling better and happier than when they arrived.
