“I was just speaking with a Physical Therapist who has owned his own practice for 21 years and is now shutting it down because of insurance reimbursements. What I am finding with MAT, is that it can be a cash-based system. MAT is a very good  supplement so that physical therapy practices can survive and thrive.”

“I had a military vet come to me with neck pain and he had been seen by every medical provider. They were getting ready to insert a pain pump into his neck because they couldn’t solve his issues. We did MAT twice and he came to me the next morning, I was actually running on the treadmill at the gym and he came up and stopped me with tears in his eyes and said “I woke up this morning with no pain.”

“Managing a fitness facility, training trainers, and working with clients. I myself was so broken down I had to quit working out. I had tried everything to get my body on track, but couldn’t get over chronic pain at 26 years old. In my search I stumbled upon MAT, and thought MAT made more sense than anything I encountered. It is by far the most rewarding and challenging thing I’ve ever done.”

“My first exposure to MAT was as a client. I had multiple failed experiences with physical therapy – they could get me out of pain, but I couldn’t return to any type of physical lifestyle, and I was only 20 years old. I found people that did MAT, who prescribed appropriate exercises, and it escalated to where I am today. As I started going down the personal training route I didn’t know if I was going to stay in that field, and when I learned MAT, it catapulted how I could help people.”
