You may now call me Master!
About a month after obtaining my massage therapy license in 2012, I happened to attend an AMTA function a block away from where I worked. During the 3-hour meeting, James Waslaski gave an amazing presentation that inspired me to enroll in his 5-day intensive orthopedic massage class and this is where I learned of the work of Dr. D! James spoke very highly of MAT and Erik Dalton. I spent some time practicing Waslaski’s orthopedic techniques and building my practice and in 2016 I attended my first Oklahoma City Myoskeletal seminar with Erik. During that 3-day event, I became so impressed with the biomechanics, pain science principles, and ease of application of the hands-on work that I purchased the entire MMT bundle.

I can’t express how much MAT has deepened my understanding of the human body and taught me how to better relate psychosocially with my clients. Everything just makes sense! The techniques are easy to integrate into any session and clients are so pleased that I’m doing something new that feels so good.

Thanks James, Erik and Gang!!!
