The source of chronic pain for many arises from very common imbalances and dysfunctional patterns in the musculoskeletal system. Most chronic pain can be relieved with a combination of skilled manual therapy and intelligent corrective exercise.
The Myoskeletal Alignment Technique (MAT) system brings together the most advanced therapeutic strategies of both to relieve, and ultimately correct, patterns in the body that lead to pain and deterioration. With MAT therapy, clients can be free from pain, avoiding invasive surgery or toxic pain mediations. Practitioners build a loyal clientele and lucrative businesses.
The human body is comprised of structural systems–such as the anatomy of bones, connective tissue and nerves–and functional systems–such as the neural signals that trigger muscular contraction. These systems are inseparably connected in a continuous feedback loop. Without a thorough understanding of how these systems work together, most common musculoskeletal complaints are incorrectly assessed and treated.
MAT training teaches massage therapists how the body systems work together, what problems in those systems lead to pain, and how to recreate optimal balance and performance.
