MUSCLE ACTIVATION

Sheila Harnett

“We pay attention so we can address the cause of pain or injury. If only the symptom is addressed, the muscular/tissue cause of the problem may not be addressed. The result is that you don’t heal –and will go on to experience a more severe injury.”

“Pain and tightness are usually symptoms of muscle imbalances. We identify and correct these imbalances; stabilizing joints and restoring pain free range of motion. When the cause of the dysfunction is properly addressed, the symptoms (pain/tightness) are diminished or eliminated.”

Andrew started his career in fitness in 1998, and has experience in general fitness training, sport-specific training, late stage rehabilitation and cardiac rehab.  He has been a MAT Certified Specialist since 2007.  He specializes in restoring clients’ range of motion while reducing or eliminating joint pain.  MAT seeks to identify and eliminate muscle compensation by re-establishing optimal nerve response to muscles.  This allows clients to experience a return to activities that are important to them with more motion and less pain.  Andrew uses MAT principles when training his clients which “bridges the gap” between rehab and exercise.
