Several years ago I was struck by a car while riding my bicycle. Instantly, I found myself needing a healing modality that created more permanent, pain-free changes in my body without the use of drugs. Though I have tried dozens of healing practices, MAT is the only one I have tried that works! Sharon is perhaps the most gifted healer that I have found and I am deeply grateful for her and for my recovery. What is also fun about the MAT technique is that I am able to participate in my own healing by utilizing the exercises provided by the MAT process. Give it a try and I am sure you will be pleased by the remarkable results.
I am a 65 year old female who plays competitive golf. Three years ago, I was in constant pain and sought treatment of all kinds. These treatments helped for a couple of days but then I was back in pain and seeking treatment twice a week to be able to play golf.
A friend told me about Muscle Activation Techniques and referred me to Sharon Switzer. After my first visit, I lost my pain, gained flexibility and realized several areas had been problematic. I continued treatments and felt great. Currently I am on a once-monthly summer maintenance program and actively play golf 5 days a week.
I continue to be pain free with improved flexibility. MAT has been a tremendous factor in being able to stay competitive as an avid golfer at age 65.
Sharon Switzer has literally changed my life! That may sound a bit over the top, but it’s true. When I went to her I had explored every option I could think of to reduce the pain I was feeling in my lower back and hip area. I had tried chiropractors, acupuncture, massage, traditional physical therapy; I even went to a couple of surgeons who performed many tests before concluding that they ‘needed to do exploratory surgery to determine the cause of the pain’. That was not an option.
When I first saw Sharon I was very skeptical because I felt that I had tried just about everything. I had resigned myself to the fact that I would be in pain for the rest of my life (I was 35 at the time). After one session with Sharon, much of the pain was gone! I began to see her regularly and noticed a large improvement not only with the pain, but the rest of my body began to feel strong again. Within months I went from being nearly hopeless to very optimistic about my health. I am very happy to say that I am now pain free and I feel as strong as I did when I was a young man! I can exercise and play the sports I love without the worry of paying for it for days to come.
Thank you Sharon! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I simply can not thank you enough!
After years of suffering with tender, stiff, high arched feet that nobody could touch, and struggling with shoes that didn’t fit, I am now enjoying flip flops for the first time in my life! I could never wear shoes without orthotics, and when I did, the bones of my feet hurt. Sharon worked on my feet over two sessions, and I now have pain free walking! I can even go barefoot in my house! Now that I’ve discovered how wonderful it is to feel the floor and the soles of my shoes, I have had no problems ditching the shoes that don’t let my feet feel good! This is a great service, and has changed the way I walk. Thanks Sharon!

I’ve been a hairstylist for over 30 years and several years ago I started having a lot of pain in my right elbow when working, so much so that I had to use an elbow brace. Not getting much relief from the brace, I went back to a Physical Therapist I had seen for a previous injury. I saw her about every 2-3 weeks. I would get relief for a few days, but gradually had to return to the elbow brace and taking Advil to get through my days. I began to wonder if I should start looking for a new career, even though I love doing hair.
Along the way I had learned about Muscle Activation Techniques and wondered if this would help. Several people I know in Boulder guided me to Sharon. About 3 sessions later I no longer had pain in my elbow. Sharon showed me that it was my shoulder, not my elbow, that was the issue. With her treatments and using a few exercises she taught me, I usually don’t have any pain in my elbow. If I do, I know I need to start the exercises again and the pain quickly goes away.
I know that Sharon’s expertise has kept me fit at work and in my life. I am a believer in Sharon and MAT. It is not always fun, but boy does it work.
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!
