ADVANCED COURSE

discover how to use MAT Techniques on real people with real problems

ERIK DALTON

 With over thirty years educating massage therapists around the world, Erik Dalton is among the most highly regarded educators in the profession. With a comprehensive understanding of the interplay between mind and body, structure and function, he has developed Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques which is changing the world of pain treatment and management.

Over time, it is common for tension, trauma and poor posture to cause the brain to stiffen the body’s musculofascial system resulting in limited mobility, protective muscle guarding, and loss of coordinated movement. In this very popular course, Erik Dalton teams up with senior MAT instructor Paul Kelly to show actual case studies including assessments, treatments, and corrective home retraining exercises.

The content in this self-study program teaches you how to bring lubrication to adhesive tissues, restore motion to adhesive joint capsules, and promote healing in injured ligaments with the ultimate goal of providing fast, effective pain relief and restoring optimal movement. You’ll also learn how to elevate the value of your services by teaching clients specific at-home exercises to further enhance the efficacy of each bodywork session.

Develop These Skills for Treating Impairments in the Motion Is Lotion course

  • Perform accurate assessments of joint positioning and mobility
  • Encourage joint stretching with maneuvers such as traction and gliding
  • Combine soft tissue massage with graded exposure stretching and muscle energy techniques
  • Educate clients on corrective home exercises they can use to assist your work
  • Utilize over 65 musculofascial mobilization assessments and corrective exercises

If you would like to help clients restore lotion to motion-restricted and protectively guarded joint capsules, nerve entrapments, and injured ligaments… you and your clients will love this work!
