If you have any concerns please read this collection of

unclear about something feel free to contact us.
What is MAT ™ and why is it so
MAT™ is a system of checks and
balances that that allows the practitioner to correct and
treat muscle imbalances as it relates to the contractile
ability of the muscle. Once a muscle loses its ability to
contract efficiently other muscle have to compensate for the
workload not being put out, thus causing muscle imbalances,
pain and limited range of motion.
Who is MAT ™ for?
In our experience Muscle activation
techniques is for everyone, from youth athletes to post
rehabilitation to the senior health. MAT makes sure that the
body is working as optimally as possible.
How many Sessions will I need?
Your progress depends on your goals
and your current condition. If your goals are to run with a
stride and you don’t have a history of surgeries and herniated
disk. Four sessions may be enough to help you get to that
goal. If your goal is to run your first marathon but you had
knee surgery and 2 herniated disk, it may take you more
Are there ways to keep your muscles
Yes, once we come to a conclusion of
what muscles are shutting down and are causing the problem we
will individually train those muscles. You will be given
exercises to do in between sessions to help reinforce and
strengthen the muscles so that they hold longer.
