Muscle Activation Techniques

Restore Body Alignment through Muscle Activation TechniquesTM with Ed Hum, at the Rama Lotus Yoga Centre

  • Improve your performance
  • Move without pain
  • Return to your favourite activities
  • Improve the quality of your life


Muscle Activation Techniques, or MAT for short, is a revolutionary approach to the assessment and correction of muscular imbalances in the human body. It is a straightforward, non-invasive technique designed to balance the muscular system. MAT provides the tools to identify restrictions in motion and joint instability relating to muscular tightness and weakness. Through a unique systematic format, MAT techniques are used to “jumpstart” the muscles in order for the muscle system to function with maximum efficiency.

MAT’s goal is to restore function to anyone who wishes to function pain free! If you have experienced any of the following conditions, you can benefit from MAT:

  • Muscular weakness or tightness
  • Limitations in motion or flexibility
  • Impaired performance
  • Injury or pain in muscles and/or joints

Whether you practice yoga or not, efficient joint motion is essential to your success. Read about the amazing way MAT has transformed the life of an Olympic athlete who was told she would never walk again: Denver Post MAT Article.
