MAT® Cervical, Hand, & Foot:
Learn how to assess, address, and correct muscular imbalances in the cervical spine and accessory muscles in the hands and feet. Learn specific range of motion assessments in order to determine which muscle tests to perform on an individual client basis. Participants will be taught revolutionary techniques to activating muscles that are not contracting efficiently and likely causing the client discomfort and muscle tightness.
The Cervical, Hand and Foot Module is a 12-week, self-paced certification module. There is a midterm virtual lab that reviews the first half of the course material and the final virtual lab reviews all of the course content covered in the module. Both labs are led by a live instructor in a practical workshop setting.
