WHAT IS MAT?

A revolutionary approach to the assessment and correction of muscular imbalances, joint instability, and limitations in range of motion within the human body.

A non-invasive technique, designed to balance the muscular system of people of all ages.

A unique systematic format used to “jump-start” the muscles in order for them to function with maximum efficiency.

Course Descriptions

MAT Mastery Lower Body Module

Cost: $1,200


Prerequisite: Participants must be MAT® Specialist Certified or MAT® Lower Body Certified for a minimum of one (1) year.

The objective: Students will learn an advanced evaluation process to assess range of motion in lower body movements and use the advanced assessment to identify areas of muscle weakness. Study includes a stronger emphasis on the applications of isolated muscle strength testing, palpation of muscle attachment points along with corrective isometrics, and reinforcement exercises. Students will review and gain a better understanding of the importance of the evaluation and assessment process in their MAT® practice.


Successful completion of the pre-lab module and passing the practical certification exam, will allow participants to become certified in MAT® Mastery Lower Body.

Cost: $1,200


Prerequisite: Participants must be MAT® Specialist Certified or MAT® Upper Body Certified for a minimum of one (1) year.

The objective: Students will gain advanced skills in Muscle Activation Techniques® for the upper body and continue to explore the relationship of muscle function to joint stability, relating to joint mobility. Students will learn an advanced evaluation process to assess range of motion in upper body movements and how to use this advanced assessments to identify areas of muscle weakness within the upper body. Study includes a stronger emphasis on the applications of isolated muscle strength testing, palpation of muscle attachment points along with corrective isometrics, and reinforcement exercises for the upper body. Students will review and gain a better understanding of the importance of the evaluation and assessment process in their MAT® practice.
