I attended a week-long massage training in 1997 and caught the bodywork bug. I was an active-duty Army medic at that time so I attended some bodywork training when I could, but was unable to attend massage school full-time until 2000 at the Florida School of Massage.

I left active duty to pursue massage and bodywork training and continued my Army career with the National Guard. The population I served at Fayetteville/Fort Bragg and during my National Guard training primarily worked in combat-related fields, so I completed a sports massage therapy program during massage school and naturally gravitated towards pain management, injury prevention, rehabilitation, and performance enhancement. My obsession with Ida Rolf’s recipe for structural change using gravity and fascial approaches led me to study with Tom Myers, John Barnes, and Aaron Mattes. Additional trainings in craniosacral, visceral, Zero Balancing, Rolf Movement, Rossiter, and Somatic Experiencing were also a welcome addition.

I discovered MAT in 2010. I appreciate Erik’s early Rolfing and osteopathic lineage and his recognition of, and respect for, his predecessors. I delayed starting MAT training until 2021 as I attended acupuncture school 2011-2016 and started my acupuncture practice.

My bodywork and acupuncture practice came to a standstill during COVID, so I shifted focus to emergency department nursing to pay the bills and started enrolling in Erik’s Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques online courses. I started with the “Treating Trapped Nerves” course as nerve-related pain and dysfunction was (and still is) a large part of my practice, and expanded my MAT journey from there. I was drawn to MAT because of its incorporation of orthopedic and osteopathic assessment, principles, and techniques with effective fascial, joint, and nerve work. Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques directly influences the body’s postural and movement patterns and its functional relationship with gravity. MAT techniques and approach offers a level of precision and effectiveness that has changed my practice and enhanced my results.

Find the entry point in MAT that excites you and incorporate it into your practice. Notice how MAT changes your work and your clients and go where it leads you. I think about how many clients I have helped with MAT, and recommend MAT courses and the Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT) certification wholeheartedly as the next step in your journey.
