EFFICIENCY AT ITS FINEST.
MAT™ is a specific and unique process for evaluating an individual’s ability to develop efficient muscle contraction(s) by first comparing left and right side range of motion, as the human body is designed to be symmetrical. If a movement is determined to be asymmetrical (i.e. one limb has a greater range of motion than the opposite limb) as determined by the Comparative Assessment of Mobility or CAM, then we know that one or more muscles that moves the less mobile limb is potentially weak. The muscles that are responsible for moving the limb further are then assessed by the MAT™ Specialist to determine if they have lost the ability to contract efficiently. When it has been determined through testing that a muscle has lost its ability to contract, then precise forces are applied to restore that muscle’s efficiency, re-activating that muscle. As muscles are restored to efficient contraction, MAT™ uses a system of accountability (checks and balances) to ensure that any increases in motion and symmetry are accompanied by improvements in a muscle’s contractile ability.
MAT sessions are either 55 or 85 minutes in length. To ensure optimal results, we always start with a detailed 85-minute assessment to be able to fully understand your body’s unique history and understand where we can assist you. From there, sessions will either be 55 or 85 minutes long, depending on the severity of issue and/or personal preference.
The frequency of visits is something we discuss with you in the first session based on our findings during the assessment. Most clients come either once a week or every other week to get started, then move to a “maintenance” frequency that is far less frequent, which saves time and money but progresses the results.
The range of $135-$180 per hour is an average relative to experience and specialties.
