Learn MAT with Foundational Home-Study Courses

Get a solid foundation in the powerfully effective pain-management modality known as Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, or MAT, with one of Dalton’s Foundational Home-Study Courses and send your career soaring to new heights of success. Developed by manual therapy pioneer Erik Dalton, MAT is a non-invasive method of managing and alleviating all kinds of pain, and practitioners who have secured training in this specific hands-on system are well-equipped to enter the lucrative world of clinical massage therapy and bodywork. For those manual therapists who are interested in working with athletes at every level, continuing education in MAT provides the perfect pathway to these large client populations.

These distance-learning programs offer practitioners the opportunity to experience Dalton’s incredible teaching ability as he conveys the nuts and bolts of MAT for a vast array of client conditions. Among the many benefits of these home-study continuing education courses is convenience — busy manual therapists can learn MAT on their own time, without taking days off for a long-distance workshop or in-person classes. Beyond the scheduling flexibility inherent to home-study programs, what sets MAT classes apart from others in the realm of continuing education is the top-notch quality that is apparent in each and every detail of these courses, from the DVDs that show Dalton actually performing his assessments and techniques to the textbooks packed with insightful information from the biggest names in field.

Foundational Home-Study Courses deliver solid MAT training

Your options when it comes to selecting a program from the catalog of Foundational Home-Study Courses include three separate MAT packages, as well as one class that focuses on “Professional Ethics for the Modern Manual Therapist.” The latter costs $99 and allows students to earn six NCBTMB-approved continuing education units (CEUs) as they learn about the key issues that can affect manual therapists when it comes to the relationship between professional practitioner and client. For those who choose to purchase either the Foundational Home-Study Bundle or the Complete Dalton Library Bundle, this class on ethics is included for free. However, for those who would like to select one specific MAT class at a time, choosing from the distance-learning courses offered in Dalton’s catalog is a great way to go.

Among the MAT manual therapy programs available from the Foundational Home-Study Courses are “Posture. Pain. Performance,” which delivers 20 CEUs; “Upper Body,” which delivers 22 CEUs; and “Lower Body,” which delivers 32 CEUs. The title of each of these courses conveys what the material covers, and each home-study package comes complete with anywhere from two to six broadcast quality instructional DVDS. These videos feature step-by-step instruction straight from Dalton, along with dissection and animation images to give students an even deeper understanding of the material. In addition, these programs come with textbooks that manual therapists will find themselves referring to throughout their careers. Upon passing a multiple choice exam at the end of any one of these three home-study classes, students earn the coveted credential of Certified Myoskeletal Therapist.
