"MAT is magical. I suffer from knee, hip and lower back issues. MAT has helped relieve the pain and allowed me to continue to lead my very active lifestyle. MAT has helped my muscles work in the way they are intended to function. The research makes so much sense. I strongly recommend you seek out Amber for MAT to get back to what you love to do!"
"I started MAT to address several long-term aches and pains, especially back pain. I also participate in various athletic activities, and I wanted to reduce my injury frequency and improve performance. MAT has made a major difference, and the difference is noticeable in several ways. For example, Amber will do a range of motion test on a joint, then do an activation technique and then retest the range of motion. The improvement is often dramatic. The testing has also revealed several imbalances in range of motion between my left and right sides. Prior to MAT I was totally unaware of theses imbalances, but the testing makes them obvious. Now I'm pain-free, move better, and feel almost "injury proof" during intense weight training and martial arts training sessions. "
I have dealt with low back issues since I was a teenager and tried multiple modalities in the past with only short-term results. I also went through a very major surgery this year resulting in muscle trauma and decreased range of motion and strength in my upper body. I truly wish I would have met Amber sooner and learned about MAT. She is incredibly compassionate and professional while also educating throughout each MAT treatment. I am incredibly grateful that after only a few MAT treatments my low back pain is gone and my mobility and range of motion have significantly improved. This has allowed me to comfortably continue a very active lifestyle. I will continue seek her out for continued therapy as well as refer friends and family to Amber for MAT treatment.
"The first time I went to Amber I wasn't sure what it would be like. I have tried chiropractic, many PT sessions, massage and acupuncture, but what Amber does with MAT is SO incredibly different! I have had many injuries being a gymnast for 19 years and a runner for 13 and I wish I would have known about MAT. I love how Amber and MAT really make your body work the way it is supposed to. Not only does it make you feel better but it helps so you can keep doing what you love. Amber and MAT are the type of care that everyone can use."
"The first time I saw Amber, I had chronic neck pain. I tried everything - physical therapy, massage, chiropractic work. Nothing helped it permanently. I couldn't look over my left side and it was tight and uncomfortable. Amber looked at my whole body and first started looking at deviations in my trunk, hips, back...but eventually - we got to my neck. I remember the day like it was yesterday because I was nervous to let her get in there and work on it. I'd been holding on to this injury for 20 years. In that one session, I was able to look over my shoulder on my left side. And I was able to do it WITH EASE. I was shocked and incredibly moved. Muscle Activation Techniques® and the work that Amber has done has helped support me in my work as a trainer and in any physical events I've chosen to participate in. She is my first call -she'll help me figure it out."
"I have had chronic neck and foot problems much of my adult life and couldn't walk without custom orthotics. Even then, my feet often hurt. My neck and shoulders were very tight and ached daily. Chiropractics helped some, as did therapeutic massages, but decided I would just have to live in pain. My older daughter visited Amber for an MAT session and said her chronic back pain was gone. I, although a bit reluctant, decided to give it a try. After a few months of MAT sessions, I suddenly didn't have the chronic pain everyday. After a few more, I was able to get rid of my orthotics and have a normal day. It has been AMAZING! I am now able to attend kickboxing 3x per week without pain!
My younger daughter has also been treated and since put away her orthotics and can go through a school day without complaining of foot pain. Amber was also able to help her wrists to perform her acrobatic tricks far better."
