MARCH couple, Colin and Debbie Buck, are off to Tenby, South Wales, to offer Emmett Technique treatments at the inaugural Iron Man Wales competition next week.
Iron Man competitions attract the cream of international athletes, who will compete in a gruelling “Super Triathlon”, consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 114 mile bike ride, followed up by a full 26 mile marathon with a time limit of 17 hours.
Debbie, who runs dktherapy on Dartford Road, was one of the first people in the UK to qualify in the Emmett Technique, a muscle-release therapy from Australia, when the founder, Ross Emmett, started teaching in London.
She has since visited Ross at his Queensland base and has been his UK co-ordinator for three years.
Her husband Colin, a well-known local sportsman, was invited to learn the Technique by Ross when he visited March two years ago.
Emmett is fast becoming the therapy of choice for all types of therapists and medical staff, as it is so fast and effective at easing musculo-skeletal pains and restrictions.
It is so effective that it is used to treat professional sports people and so gentle that it can be used on everyone from babies to people in their nineties.
Apart from offering treatment for all types of pain, Debbie runs regular short courses – suitable for anyone to learn - from her base in Dartford Road, and teaches the professional technique all over the UK and Ireland.
