Keep It Fresh

Muscle Activation Techniques--One Powerful Answer to Pain

A couple of years ago, my right hip was giving me a of trouble--so much so that I was tossing and turning all night, limping, and turning into quite the grouch. not good for a fitness instructor. I tried everything I knew of--herbs, acupuncture, massage, heat, cold, rest, exercise, physical therapy, yoga, weight lifting--nothing really made a difference. Finally, I heard about Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT). It was a slow miracle and now I can't sing its praises enough...

... for anyone who has an injury that knocked them off their exercise routine, who has joint pain, joint stiffness, or muscle tightness that's cramping their style ... who's tired of taking pain killers and anti-inflammatories, who is being promised, as I was, a future that included a hip replacement--but not right now, because "you're not in enough pain."

"MAT looks at muscle tightness as a form of protection in the body. Weak or inhibited muscles can create the need for other muscles to tighten up in order to help stabilize the joints. MAT gets to the root of pain or injury by addressing muscle weakness rather than muscle tightness. This helps to restore normal body alignment, thereby, decreasing pain and reducing the risk of injury."

My radio show with Brant Armundson explains in easy to understand terms, what MAT is--and what it isn't. Brant wrestled and played football in school and is now a personal trainer with 20 years of experience, pilates instructor and muscle activation techniques specialist. After years of wear and tear, pain and muscle and joint tightness led him to muscle activation techniques for healing. He now helps others experience the joy and freedom that a balanced muscular system can bring.
