I have been practicing massage therapy for 28 years since graduating from the Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge, MA in 1996. I came into the profession through my love of being a competitive adult figure skater and am still currently competing. Over the course of my 28 years practicing massage, I have always been interested in getting to the root of my clients’ issues and found myself constantly attending workshops that would help me achieve that goal.
By God’s grace I came across an advertisement for a workshop Erik Dalton was offering that had some techniques for working with scoliosis clients (my son has a 36º curve). After taking my first workshop with Erik, I quickly realized what an amazing mentor he is and how his work tied everything I’d previously learned neatly together. I’ve found that his Myoskeletal Techniques are easy to incorporate into any type of treatment.When I learned of his MMT program, I knew immediately that I wanted to pursue it. Although it took several years for me to complete all the eCourses and live workshops, it was worth the time and effort. I am now able to quickly assess and treat most of the issues my clients come in with and they absolutely love how great they feel after a MAT treatment. As I was writing this bio, a client literally just texted me with this message, “Deb my back feels so much better today. It’s great to be able to move without that nagging pain. Thank you! Thank you!” Since incorporating Myoskeletal Techniques into my treatments I get messages like this several times a week and it brings me so much joy being able to help my clients live their lives pain free. I am also grateful for Erik’s wonderful teachers and TAs. They are all so passionate about helping others learn his work and they’ve inspired me to continue on my path to becoming a Freedom From Pain Institute teaching assistant. If you’re a massage therapist thinking about learning MAT and working towards your Master Myoskeletal Therapist certification, “just do it”… the rewards are endless!
