My journey with Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques started in 2018 after seeing a Facebook post from a recent graduate of Erik’s Master Myoskeletal Therapist program. They spoke highly of the experience, and it caught my attention.
At first, I was a bit hesitant, but eventually enrolled in the Treating Trapped Nerves course. I found it to be extremely functional and soon started applying the techniques even before I completely finished the course.
My background as a sport scientist and massage/rehab therapist allowed me to complete the advanced course of Treating Trapped Nerves successfully. I was very impressed with the course materials and topics covered, but I was more impressed with the skills I attained. These skills were being manifested in the treatments my clients received and they too, also noticed the difference in my therapy.
As these new acquired skills began to expand, I decided to take full advantage of the additional course work which was being offered. I began with the foundational courses and as I worked my way through the advanced levels, I really began to enjoy the educational journey. MAT became an umbrella for all the therapeutic training I had acquired and it brought a new dimension and approach to my Massage/Rehab practice.
I no longer “chase the pain” I solve the pain puzzle. The highlight of this journey was the MAT workshop I attended in April 2021 held in Dublin, Ireland facilitated by Aubrey Gowing MMT where I was able to see MAT in action with Erik Dalton in real time.
I am forever grateful to the Erik Dalton team with a special mention for Kim Miller “Director of Education” who assisted me throughout the journey to become a Master Myoskeletal Therapist. Thank you all for providing me with the opportunity to expand my therapeutic knowledge and skills… not only to increase my income, but to really make a difference in the lives of the many who seek to be free from pain.
