MAT Recommendation

"Being a sports agent and working with professional athletes over the past 12 years, I have dealt with a wide variety of injuries with my players. Stephanie Turner introduced me to the Muscle Activation Techniques and first implemented it during my pro camp four summers ago. Needless to say, it has be a huge hit with my athletes. They look forward to using MAT and also working with Stephanie on a daily basis. She has been a significant part of my players pre and post training routine."
