My background is 25 years in the Army Physical Training Corp during which I trained as a remedial therapist, followed by 14 years as a college lecturer. During this time, I have worked with British athletes in the sports of judo and archery and have been fortunate enough to compete internationally in both sports.
While attending a muscle energy course with John Gibbons, a fellow participant spoke about Erik Dalton and the techniques he used. After the workshop, I began researching Erik’s Freedom From Pain Institute and decided that Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques was for me. The courses are easy to follow and contain extremely effective techniques. The biggest difference from other modalities I’d studied is that MAT presented a specific roadmap to follow no matter the condition. Low back pain and stiff necks are no longer guess work, I know when my client gets off the therapy table, they will feel a lot better and in most cases be pain free.
I would also like to thank Aubrey Gowing, one of Erik’s instructors based in southern Ireland who helped me achieve my goal of masters in MAT. Aubrey is incredibly knowledgeable and a first-rate teacher. Finally, my thanks go out to all at the Freedom From Pain Institute staff (especially Kim Miller), who has been above and beyond helpful, and of course to Erik himself for putting it all together and making me a better therapist. Thank you all. Proud to be an MMT.
