What is Muscle Activation Techniques™ (MAT)?

Purchase MAT sessions on the bottom of the MAT Services page.

mat_logo_2xMAT is a specific and unique process that is used to improve an individual’s ability to develop efficient muscle contraction (s) as indicated by the measurement and comparison of AROM symmetry issues on each side of the body.  The MAT process can address hundreds of muscles and  joints in order to uncover the muscular issues that could be contributing to the loss of physical performance and associated subjective complaints.  This complex process leads to what could be many sessions of work, performed over time, to solve existing problems.  MAT evaluates the body as a mechanical system and the interrelationship of the joints. The premise of MAT is to prioritize weakness instead of tightness, as loss of range of motion is viewed as a strength issue.

You can learn more about Muscle Activation Techniques training, its origins, and its creator Greg Roskopf or by visiting the  MAT section of our blog.
