What is MAT?

  • A dynamic approach to addressing muscular imbalances that can reduce or eliminate pain and fatigue, and speed muscle recovery.
  • A non-invasive method for improving everyday activities for all age groups and body types.
  • Allows the body the ability to achieve optimal levels of function, without further discomfort or injury by increasing the body’s range of motion, restoring muscular alignment, and eliminating compensation patterns.
  • A checks-and-balances system designed to identify and address the causes of discomfort and range of motion limitations.


How Can MAT Help You?

Do you want to do the things you used to do? MAT’s unique approach can quickly restore functional movement, so you can enjoy your activities.

Want to perform to your maximum potential?

If you want more range of motion to improve your swing or simply enjoy daily activities, MAT can either enhance your current physical therapy methods or be used as a stand-alone program. Don’t accept the “no pain, no gain” myth. MAT will help you eliminate the limitations associated with aging by addressing the degeneration process. With MAT, everyday people are treated like million-dollar athletes.

How is MAT different from other methods and rehabilitation techniques?

MAT’s unique approach addresses the cause of your discomfort, not just the symptoms. Results are typically quick and long lasting. MAT restores body alignment and activates inhibited muscles that may be the cause your discomfort.

Good news for home buyers!

Interest rates will remain low. According to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, the Fed is still unhappy with the US economic situation and the Fed fells like they need to take extra steps toward the recovery  effort so, the Federal Reserve announced that short-term lending rates will likely stay near 0% until at least mid 2013. There is debate about whether or not this will help homebuyers since many Americans are not taking advantage of the already record low mortgage rates because of stricter lending standards by banks.
