The Myoskeletal Alignment Technique (MAT) system brings together the most advanced therapeutic strategies 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 and toxic pain medications. Practitioners build a loyal clientele and a lucrative business.

You can learn Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques through home study (DVDs and manuals) and online courses. Study from the convenience of your home and complete the courses at a pace that works for you. Courses are standalone and can be taken in any order. All courses count towards your requirements for certification as a Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT), an exclusive designation that represents the highest level of expertise in MAT and is one of the most highly regarded designations in the profession.

The courses are divided into two broad categories:

  • Foundational courses for those who are new to Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques
  • Advanced courses for those who are familiar with the basic principles of MAT and want to expand their knowledge

All courses are approved for CE credits by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) as well as many state and international regulatory boards.

Bundle and save! You can purchase any course on its own, but consider getting the Foundational course bundle that includes all foundational courses for a discounted price. If you are ready for a deep dive into MAT, you can get the entire library of home study courses at a significant discount as well.
