Several years ago, after becoming a licensed massage and bodyworker, I was invited by a fellow therapist to join ABMP’s “Community of Massage Practitioners.” During the first few months I spent a lot of time researching the organization’s very sophisticated social network. It was there I met Erik Dalton and learned about the Freedom From Pain Institute’s trainings. Seeing this as a way of fulfilling my CE requirements, I enrolled in my first home study course titled Posture-Pain-Performance. I immediately knew that Erik’s Myoskeletal Therapy was going to play a big part in my future.
As I began incorporating MAT, my chronic pain clients began moving better and feeling more optimistic about their conditions. So, naturally I couldn’t wait to take my next Myoskeletal CE class and after my second live workshop, I realized that this “brain-based” hands-on therapy was going to be a big boon to my bodywork practice. By integrating my previous massage therapy knowledge with Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques, I was able to elevate my career to a higher (more confident) level. I intuitively knew this modality would become a standard way of life for many years to come in helping clients live a more enjoyable life with less pain. I have really appreciated the hands-on classes as well as all the new professionally produced eLearning courses.
By becoming a Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT), I’ve witnessed a growth not only in my hands-on skills, but also my personal life. I have now become aware of the importance of movement and taking care of myself so that I am able to bring this wonderful modality to the table for years to come. Thank you, Erik Dalton, for allowing me to learn your Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques.
