Identify Muscular Imbalances & Weaknesses

Muscle Activation Techniques or MAT is a methodology used to assess various factors related to muscle health. 

  • Assessing the muscular range of motion
  • Identifying muscular imbalances 
  • Identifying weakness within the body
  • Reactivating the disconnected or weak muscle fibers

A weak muscle is one that doesn't contract efficiently. There may be a disconnect between the Central Nervous System (CSI) and the muscular system. This disconnect may be the result of muscular stress, trauma, or overuse, and can affect all individuals from elite athletes, and weekend warriors to frail elderly.

Gina Fortuna – Certified MAT Trainer

 Gina Fortuna is a Certified Specialist through Greg Roskopf's Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT).  She is currently working on the mastery level skill set and will soon become certified at the Masters Level of MAT. When a muscular weakness is identified, palpation or isometrics are used to communicate with the central nervous system and jumpstart the muscular system. Improving the efficiency of muscular contractions helps ensure the appropriate muscles, which are required for specific movements, are used.

Non-Invasive Approach

When muscles are not contracting efficiently, compensation within the muscular system may lead to muscular pain and joint vulnerability. 

MAT is a non-invasive, gentle approach to address muscular imbalance within the body and improve overall muscular contractibility and function.
