Main points from this week’s show:

  • MAT® is a systematic approach to assessing and addressing dysfunction of the muscular system.
  • MAT® is utilized by people wanting to be more active in their life, people wanting to get back to exercising regularly, people who want to continue to exercise, as well as high-level athletes.
  • The goal of MAT® is to help the muscular system contract on demand, resulting in increased strength and often improvements in joint motion.
  • MAT® is analogous to getting your car tuned up – this is like a tune-up for your muscles.
