I’ve been a licensed massage therapist since 1995 and upon graduation, began practicing with one of my teachers in a very successful local physical therapy clinic. While in school, I trained in Pilates so I was able to treat people who were interested in maintaining their strength and functional movement, but my eyes were always on movement patterns. My goal was to figure out ways to increase their comfort level by recognizing what activities and patterns were making them feel uncomfortable. For years, I had seen ads for Erik Dalton’s Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, but not until I Marisel Clark and Michelle Quigley and witnessed their enthusiasm for the work that I decided it was time for me to ante up and enroll in the Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT) program. I was lucky enough to start taking live MAT classes in early 2021 (masks and all), with Nate Fay in CT. I took two classes with him in early 21 and was quite overwhelmed with the amount of material presented in those two weekend seminars. I purchased Erik’s Foundational Bundle to try to retain some of this wonderful new information. In November of 2021 I chose to go to Costa Rica after hearing so many wonderful things about it. And this trip did NOT disappoint. Meeting so many like- minded therapists/ anatomy geeks, and all the kind people who make up the Dalton gang was a delight. World class education and therapists in a gorgeous resort, studying with the man himself…. it was a phenomenal week! My favorite thing about Erik Dalton as a teacher is his laid-back, humorous approach to what can be heady information. And when he’s not presenting, he’s out working the room showing participants how to correctly perform the techniques. He is a teacher through and through. I like the fact that the MMT training includes the study of spinal biomechanics and how joint dysfunction can lead to protective muscle spasm. A subject that was kind of kind off-limits in my basic massage training. I find that Myoskeletal Techniques and Pilates are a powerful combination in my practice. People stand noticeably more upright and there are immediate, identifiable differences in how the client feels in their body. Just do it!! The Master Myoskeletal Therapist certification is one of the most cost-effective, and highly regarded continuing education programs out there. And you absolutely must attend at least one of Erik’s Costa Rica retreats. To be with like-minded colleagues, in a beautiful resort, getting world class education, great bodywork, and phenomenal food is just an amazing experience….and a tax write off! A win-win!
