We help clients find what’s fun and joyful in their life with fitness. When your body starts refusing to do things it used to, like loss of strength, that’s where we come in. We view eating, movement, and health habits as a pathway to living life with purpose. We talk to clients about getting outside to play. About feeling better in their bodies, not exhausted, and pain-free.
MAT or Muscle Activation Technique is a tool used by MASJ to assess and correct chronic pain throughout the body. This can be things like correcting muscular imbalances or improving range of motion within the body. MAT does this by finding and correcting the muscles that are causing tension, this way the body naturally reduces the tension in the area since it is no longer needed. It also helps improve muscle function since it focuses on getting rid of muscular imbalances caused by compensation in the body.
On the first visit we ask that you make time for a 90 minute meeting where we will go over your health history, posture, joint by joint movement, and any problems you want addressed. Then we’ll set up some goals and exercises for you to do on a daily basis that are tailored to your needs.
After your first visit, we’ll give you ‘homework’ to do with our fitness coaching app and schedule a follow-up appointment in a week or two. Our goal is to correct your imbalance and strengthen through fitness where you only need to come in for check ups ranging from monthly to bi-annually depending on your health goals.
Fitness is important to maintaining your health, by not exercising regularly you risk your body’s health declining. This usually means things like diabetes or weight gain, which themselves come with more health problems. The main issue though is that your muscles wouldn’t be getting any use, so they would degrade and become weaker.
This can lead to chronic pain as the underused muscles have to be pushed hard to get regular movements completed. Although exercise can also help your state of mind, as exercising can help to boost your mood and balance some daily activities. The main way it boosts your mood is by releasing endorphins and serotonin which are natural chemicals that make you happy.
MASJ designs a workout plan with tailored exercises that target the problem areas. We can help with any chronic pain, joint issues, and fitness goals you have. It will also help to generally improve your strength, endurance, and mobility to make sure that other issues don’t develop. This is especially good for older folk who need that extra help to become less tense or reduce pain.

There are a plethora of health problems that come with lack of exercise, but the main issue is chronic pain caused by lack of muscle use. This pain can affect almost any part of your body. It can even cause issues for your arthritis because the muscles supporting the joints are weak and can’t support the joint function.
