How Does MAT Work?
·         Contract-relax techniques can make the nervous system less threatened by the movement… even if muscles aren’t permanently lengthening, trigger points aren’t being obliterated, fascia isn’t stretching, etc.
·         Active pain-free therapy signals the brain that the previously painful movement is now safe.
·         By doing this repeatedly, the nervous system will often start to disassociate the movement from the pain.
