    Mind / Body Methods Testimonials
    "As a yoga teacher, I have been fascinated with MAT. I teach balance and alignment. In order to achieve that one needs to strengthen some muscles and loosen others. Most people want to stretch but they forget that the opposite muscle needs to strengthen. MAT helps with finding the muscles that need to strengthen. I have sent many students to Activation Fitness and they have found the help they needed. I think MAT technique is terrific."

    "My feet were the motivation for giving MAT a try. The heels had become so tender over the years that to walk was painful. Cyndi Burman worked tenaciously over several sessions on the many muscles/joints within each foot, the muscular alignment of my hips/legs to my feet and balance between both sides. I also became more cognizant of how I placed my feet when I walk and practice yoga. Gradually the tenderness subsided to where I am today, 12 months later. My feet are no longer an issue. I have made the decision to continue to work with Cyndi on other parts of my body because I believe that MAT is important to my graceful aging process. The muscles sometimes need to be reminded of how they connect to and interact with each other and their respective bones. MAT has become an important part of the overall health plan to keep me strong and happy in my active life style."

    "After nearly one year of shoulder pain, I felt frustrated because traditional physical therapy was not helping anymore. I even had arthroscopic surgery to diagnose what the problem was; only to discover that my injury was permanent and could not be fixed surgically (damaged cartilage). I felt like nothing would ever help my pain and allow me to exercise the way I used to. My doctor suggested I try MAT to see if it would help. Not only did it help more than anything I had tried so far, but I actually feel that with time and continued strengthening, I will likely get to a point where I will be virtually pain free. MAT helped determine why the injury happened in the first place. I am able to do yoga again with some minor modifications. Yoga was a big part of my life before, but also contributed to my injury. MAT has helped me understand my limitations and strengthen my weaknesses so I can practice yoga safely again!"
