Owner and operator of Bodylogic in Vienna, WV for 11 years; I began studying MAT in 2011 with the “big binder” of techniques and dense readings on the guiding principles of manual therapy. Each module since has become more refined, more fun, and more educational.
Erik Dalton has done the field of massage therapy an enormous service by distilling osteopathic assessment and treatment into a cohesive set of techniques and making them available to massage therapists and practitioners who still use touch as the primary method of interaction with their patients. The depth of knowledge that MAT training provides is valuable not only for its effective hands-on techniques, but also for its attention to principles of anatomical assessment, movement retraining, and manual application.
The 210 Master Myoskeletal Therapist certification was a long but rewarding journey I will continue to use the rest of my career….proud to be a MMT!!
