The basics of Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) are founded In identifying range of motion imbalances and the subsequent muscle weaknesses and addressing them with a series of muscle tests and palpitations at the origin and insertion of the corresponding muscles.
Although MAT is often associated with helping reduce pain, this is only a byproduct of the reduction in overall inflammation that occurs when muscle weakness and imbalances are resolved. MAT is founded on the Roskopf principle that states that muscle tightness is secondary to muscle weakness. Therefore, whether you’re in pain, have muscle tightness or certain exercises don’t feel as good as they used to, there is a very good chance that MAT will be the modality that helps you resolve those issues and take your health and fitness to the next level.
MATRx is the highest level of MAT and can be thought of as a nervous system reset/ overhaul and allows individuals to improve tolerance levels to whatever is stressing your body out and breaking it down. It allows you to find the weakest links and ultimately eliminate them with the Rx process.
