Muscle Activation Techniques

View All Section Pages

Do you want to improve your performance at your favorite sport, move without discomfort or return to your favorite activities? Muscle Activation Techniques™ (MAT) can help.

MAT is a revolutionary approach to correct muscle imbalances by addressing muscle weakness rather than muscle tightness. Performed by a Professional Fitness Trainer/Certified MAT Specialist, the dynamic, hands-on process identifies and corrects neuromuscular imbalances—getting to the root of the muscle and joint pain.

A MAT session includes:

  1. An assessment of your range of motion and testing the muscles to determine where the imbalances are.
     
  2. Activating the muscles by applying pressure to the soft tissue surrounding your weak areas to restore proper communication between the brain and muscles.
     
  3. Retesting the muscle(s) to evaluate progress.

Ultimately this process helps to restore normal body alignment, decrease pain and reduce the risk of injury. Many people see an improvement after just one session; however, a series of four to six sessions is recommended to reinforce the stabilization of your muscles.

With MAT you can return to your active lifestyle with renewed strength. Book your session today! Email Mary Edwards or call 972.233.4832, ext. 4230.
