MAT (Muscle Activation Technique)

Movement is fundamental to our health. A muscle's ability to contract efficiently is critical for optimal movement.

When muscles don't contract efficiently, range of motion and overall physical performance are compromised. The MAT Specialist is able to determine which muscles lost their ability to contract efficiently. A manual muscle activation technique is then applied to restore the muscle's efficiency. Afterwards, movement in the joint is tested to ensure that the restored range of motion is well balanced with the renewed degree of the muscle's contractability.

Benefits

MAT increases range of motion and strength, improving the overall physical performance. The technique is gentle and non-invasive. It instantly demonstrates how critical the muscle’s ability to contract is to any type of movement.

What to expect

The session takes place on a massage table. It begins with an assessment using various movements and gentle palpations by the MAT Specialist. Then the interplay between a gentle manual muscle activation and re-assessment begins. The technique may feel subtle. However, once you stand and check your range of motion, you realize how profound the results are.
