Muscle Activation Techniques® is a biomechanically based system designed to evaluate and address muscular dysfunction that contributes to pain or injury. MAT introduces a paradigm shift in how tightness is viewed in the fitness and rehab industries. It approaches the idea of muscle imbalances from the standpoint of improving the function of the inhibited/weak muscles because that in turn will help release/relax the overactive muscles. Essentially, we are trying to work with the body to improve performance instead of against it. Whether you’re looking to compete at an elite level, enjoy a full round of golf, be active with friends and family, or simply be able to perform everyday activities, MAT may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
