What is Muscle Activation Techniques?
Greg Roskopf’s Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) is a process developed to restore efficient muscle contractions in the body. The body has a specific way it should use its muscles to perform movement. The connection of the muscle to the central nervous system is crucial to make the body move.
There are several reasons the body may not have proper connections between the muscles and the central nervous system. A few common reasons can be overuse, trauma to the muscle, or aging. The goal of MAT is to activate the sluggish muscles and restore proper communication with the central nervous system.
This therapy is done by a trained MAT specialist using manual testing and palpations. MAT is done fully clothed and the session takes one hour. The client should be able to resume normal activity after their session.
