What is MAT?

Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) is a revolutionary approach to the assessment and correction of muscular imbalances in the body (which can cause joint and muscle pain). It’s a straightforward, non-invasive technique providing tools to evaluate an individual’s ability to produce muscle contraction and “jumpstart” the muscle to function with maximum efficiency.

Who and Why?

Anyone from an elite athlete to a rehabilitation patient can benefit from MAT. Application techniques can restore function and strengthen weak muscles, allowing for optimal performance. Whether competing in a race or walking up the stairs, your body will be able to do it in the most efficient way.

  • muscle tightness, muscle weakness, muscle imbalances, limited ROM
