what is muscle activation techniques...

Muscle Activation Techniques is unique from other therapies because it is the only therapy out there addressing the contractile capabilities of the muscles. It uses a comparative assessment from side to side to tease out asymmetries within an individual. These unilateral differences help create a map for the practitioner to start assessing individual muscle's ability to contract. Due to stress, trauma, overuse, and inflammation, the muscle's contractile capabilities can be effected. Through a series of specific muscle tests, palpations, isometrics, and retests, I will "charge up" your muscles and get them functioning again to allow your body to move in a mechanically efficient way.
