Joan Moore is considered by many to be the top massage therapist in Dublin. We’re delighted that she decided to pursue certification as a Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT). Achieving this certification, one of the highest standards for a massage professional, is not easy. It takes a burning desire to get results for your clients and a great deal of commitment. You can read a little bit about her journey below. She is highly skilled at treating a range of myoskeletal problems, from back to carpal tunnel syndrome.

Throughout my career in bodywork I studied several different styles of massage and holistic therapies; Swedish, Hawaiian lomilomi, bamboo massage, bone massage, orthopedic and medical massage, sports and remedial massage and acupuncture. I found it all fascinating especially the mind body connection. Then about 10 years ago I was introduced to Erik Dalton’s Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques during a 5-day orthopedic workshop. I found his approach to body work fascinating, and the results for clients mind blowing. I was hooked straight away.
I began my journey learning MAT through the home study courses. Then when the courses became accessible online that was great too! I live in Ireland and being able to access MAT courses online made it so convenient for me. I was able to work full time and study online at my own pace. As I worked through the courses my goal was to get on track to complete my MMT Certification and get myself to the Costa Rica workshop to learn from Erik Dalton himself. Then in 2022 Erik Dalton came to teach near my home city Dublin, Ireland. I was so excited I booked my spot right away! It was the highlight of my year! Throughout that year, 2022, I had a health issue that put me in the hospital for several months. The upside? It allowed me time to finish all of my required online learning and qualifications to become an MMT.
I am so honored to have finally received my Master Myoskeletal Therapist Certification and to be part of this community of amazing therapists. Thank you Erik Dalton and all of the Dalton gang for your support and encouragement over the years and also a big thanks to Kim at Freedom From Pain Institute for putting up with me. This is just the beginning of my journey as an MMT.
