Alignment is based on the idea that the modernized world
is not conducive to a healthy musculoskeletal system, and
that long hours hunched over a computer screen in the office
sometimes creates unbearable pain and hampers ability to
function normally.This kind of bodywork is extremely helpful
for people experiencing neck and back pain, or for those
working in stressful jobs who feel that their body is being
source of chronic pain for many arises from very common
imbalances and dysfunctional patterns in the musculoskeletal
system. Most chronic pain can be relieved with a combination
of skilled manual therapy and intelligent corrective exercise.
Myoskeletal Alignment Technique (MAT) system brings together
the most advanced therapeutic strategies of both to relieve,
and ultimately correct, patterns in the body that lead to
pain and deterioration. With MAT therapy, clients can be
free from pain, avoiding invasive surgery or toxic pain
human body is comprised of structural systems, such as the
anatomy of bones, connective tissue and nerves, and functional
systems, such as the neural signals that trigger muscular
contraction. These systems are inseparably connected in
a continuous feedback loop. Without a thorough understanding
of how these systems work together, most common musculoskeletal
complaints are incorrectly assessed and treated.
The foundation of Western medicine includes Osteopathy,
an approach to medical care based on respect for the bodys
inherent ability to self-heal. Doctors of Osteopathy are
trained in manual therapy techniques and natural remedies
that they use firstbefore surgery or medication.
principles of Osteopathy are part of MAT:
part of the body is connected to every other part of the
body through myofascial connective tissue.
reducing impediments to proper structure and function,
practitioners can assist the bodys ability to defend,
repair and rebuild itself.
therapy includes muscle energy techniques, which combine
alternate stretching and isometric contraction.
therapy also includes palpation feedback techniques called
myofascial release. These boost circulation and lymph
drainage, as well as promote the corrective stretch reflex
of muscles and fascia.
Developed by Ida Rolf, Rolfing is an approach to therapeutic
bodywork that focuses on working with the bodys connective
tissues. Appropriate posture and ultimately function are
understood as arising from the bodys relationship
to gravity and the earth.
ideas from Rolfing that influence MAT:
function can only be achieved when the body is in proper
misalignment must include working with connective tissue
to stretch the bodys fascia.
combination of corrective movement and manual therapy
is the best way to create lasting improvements in physical
alignment and overall wellbeing.
and body are deeply intertwined, working together in all
posture and movement.
