Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT)
When someone is compensating and unable to do certain motions, MAT will assess the limitations and get the inhibited muscles firing. MAT is a revolutionary approach to the assessment and correction of muscular imbalances. It is a straightforward and non-invasive technique, designed to balance the muscular system. Through a unique systematic format, MAT techniques are used to “jumpstart” the muscle in order for them to function with maximum efficiency.
MAT works with the communication between your brain and muscles, so you can reach your full potential.
MAT identifies weak muscles, or those that aren’t properly communicating with the brain, and walks you through exercises that target those very specific areas. Fixing the way that muscles contract and more evenly distributing work amongst muscles in a group can do a lot for the body.
When you have the muscles working together as they should, movement and function of individuals’ are optimized.
