• A revolutionary approach to the assessment and correction of muscular imbalances, joint instability, and limitations in range of motion within the human body.
  • A non-invasive technique, designed to balance the muscular system of people of all ages.
  • A unique systematic format used to “jump-start” the muscles in order for them to function with maximum efficiency.

It’s a revolutionary approach to assess a client’s muscular system to determine what muscles are not working correctly and fix the problem. It can restore function and correct muscle weakness. It can help an athlete perform better, an injured layman receive relief, and a desk job worker prevent back injury.

For me, after years of study, observing muscle imbalances, listening to the problems people face due to injury, and understanding the needs of athletes, I know that MAT is a key directive that will provide for the needs of my clients! So, I embarked on studying this technique and became a certified MAT® specialist!  People have the opportunity to come to my studio for a MAT treatment whether or not they are training with me. I incorporate this technique into workout training sessions to help my clients receive a more customized experience and increase athletic performance.

Each client is an individual with their own muscular weaknesses and compensation patterns. No treatment session is ever the same.

MAT® does not force change on the body but instead works with it to make improvements, causing changes in motion via improvements in muscle contraction. I will listen to your body’s responses and changing the treatment decisions based on these responses. MAT® does not diagnose or treat pathology, but works to improve a muscle’s contractile capabilities and the resulting range of motion and strength of that muscle/limb.

Improving these aspects, a person will see an increased ability for exercise and physical performance. MAT® never attempts to directly lengthen or change the muscle by stretching, heating, kneading, or foam rolling. This process will “activate” the muscle, so that your body is better prepared to handle the forces that come from exercise and every day movements.
