Since becoming a massage therapist in 2009 I have worked in a variety of settings, ranging from luxury spas, corporate settings, pain management clinic to private practice. I am an avid learner and my fascination for the human body and mind and the therapeutic possibilities of bodywork and movement therapy is limitless. Since my early days as a massage therapist, I have been intrigued by Erik Dalton’s work. In 2016, I took my first MAT workshop taught by Paul Kelly, with Erik Dalton as a special guest. It was a profound experience and I knew then that I would continue studying this amazing modality. As life took me through many chapters, I kept coming back to MAT. Over the years I completed the coursework, and implemented more and more techniques into my practice. With great joy, I received my MMT certification in the 2023 Oklahoma workshop by Erik Dalton himself. A memory I will never forget. MAT techniques convince with the profound therapeutic outcomes. They are based on the newest research in pain management and nervous system regulation. A big emphasize is put on joint alignment and joint function, which plays a crucial role in pain management. MAT blends myofascial work with elements of manual osteopathy and integrates them into rhythmically flowing routines. Not only do the clients experience pain relief during and after a MAT session, the treatment itself is profoundly soothing and relaxing due to the rhythmic nature of it. MAT techniques are easily integrated with other massage and bodywork modalities. My clients love how fluid and lubricated their joints feel after receiving MAT work and how chronic pain fades away with sessions. I would recommend pursuing MAT education to any massage therapist who is interested in therapeutic bodywork and pain management. Whether a workshop or an online course, the knowledge and techniques learned will enhance your massage and bodywork practice immeasurably. And, finally, the MAT community is the best I have encountered in the industry in my 14 years of being a massage therapist. The workshops are immaculately organized and the whole team of hosts and TA’s exudes a warmth and welcomes every participant with joy and open arms. Erik Dalton is a true champion in teaching. He reads the energy of the room impressively well, adjusts the pace perfectly to allow for dynamic and refreshed brains and focused learning alike. Erik skillfully facilitates joyful, relaxed and rewarding learning experiences that are unmatched and feel like a big celebration. Thank you, Erik for enriching the massage therapy industry and each of your students so profoundly! Much gratitude,
