Muscle Activation Techniques

What is MAT?
Muscle Activation Techniques  (MAT) is a unique systematic approach that looks at muscle tightness as a form of protection in the body. Weak or inhibited muscles can create the need for other muscles to tighten up in order to help stabilize the joints. MAT gets to the root of pain or injury by addressing muscle weakness rather than muscle tightness. This helps to restore normal body alignment, thereby, decreasing pain and reducing the risk of injury.

MAT prepares the body for all types of activities and complements modalities such as physical therapy and chiropractic work. MAT sets your body up to win and overcome challenges.  It helps reduce the body’s need to compensate and can eliminate pain associated with improper body mechanics.  MAT can help distribute stress appropriately throughout the body similar to having your car in alignment.
MAT is the answer to enhancing performance in all areas of life.
