Named for the many layers of connection that can be made within the human body and that extend to its surrounding environment, Make The Connection, LLC strives to achieve optimal health and performance for all of our clients. Using Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT™), I can literally make the connection and reestablish communication between the muscles and the central nervous system that turns on—or resets—the muscles. By optimizing the performance of the nervous system and reactivating weak or non-functioning muscles, the body no longer compensates for the weakness or dysfunction and the associated pain ceases.
“Using Muscle Activation Techniques has dramatically increased my quality of life! After 23 years of living with chronic pain and only finding temporary relief from Chiropractic, a D.O., Physical Therapy, Rolfing, Acupuncture, Psycho Therapy, Massage, and Athletic Training I was frustrated. Thankfully just when I was ready to give up and accept my pain, I found out about MAT and met Sharon Switzer. Because of Sharon’s treatments, I am playing sports again and living pain free!”
