Muscle Activation Techniques™ 

Greg Roskopf's Muscle Activation Techniques™ (MAT) is a systematic approach to biomechanically evaluate and treat muscular imbalances and dysfunction.  These dysfunctions can cause or contribute to injury, decreased ROM, decreased performance, and pain. MAT asks what can you not do, and then tries to determine if the muscles that coordinate that action are working properly. 

Correction of inhibited muscles can include isometric activation exercises designed to stimulate specific muscles or manual palpations that “activate” the muscles at their attachment sites. Take home exercises are then recommended to ensure an active role by the patient.

Corrective/Athletic Massage
An in-depth assessment is given to determine muscle inhibitions, fascial restrictions, and muscular imbalances that result in chronic conditions, pain, dysfunction, or decreased athletic performance.  Several of the most effective corrective techniques are utilized in each session. Techniques may include, but are not limited to: Muscle Activation Techniques, Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT), Muscle Re-Patterning, Soft Tissue Release (STR), Myofascial Release, and Craniosacral Therapy.  A series of sessions are recommended to achieve the full benefits. Please bring shorts.

Myofascial Therapy 

A form of therapy performed with little or no lubricant to effect changes on the body’s fascial system. The tissue is carefully spread apart in small sections to soften, lengthen, and improve its function. This treatment is used to reduce pain or discomfort, treat chronic conditions, reduce compensation patterns, realign the body, and to improve lymphatic flow. 1-2 hours is generally needed to perform a full body treatment. 

Deep Tissue Massage 

A type of massage that focuses on relieving pain and discomfort, reducing tension, improving flexibility, and increasing circulation.  The massage uses a deeper pressure and will target problem areas, tight muscles, or trigger points.  This type of massage is ideal for when the body is feeling tight, sore, and run down.  

CranioSacral Therapy (CST)

A gentle treatment approach working with the body’s natural self correcting mechanisms through enhancing the flow of the cerebralspinal fluid, blood, and lymph. It can positively affect the central nervous system, immune system, hormonal systems, and alleviate chronic pain and dysfunction.

Swedish Massage

This type of massage focuses on easing minor aches and pains, reducing stress, increasing circulation, improving flexibility, and achieving an overall sense of well being. The massage session generally uses firm but gentle pressure with kneading, compression, scented oils/lotions, and long, gliding strokes.
