An innovative soft-tissue technique, MAST Performance Technique (MPT), encompasses what has been missing from common soft-tissue therapy – progression strategies to emmulate athletic or workplace performance. Regardless if you are an athlete looking to return to sport or an office worker looking to reduce discomfort, MAST Performance Technique will target the muscles and soft-tissues that are underactive, phasic, and prone to weakness.
Shorten-to-lengthen neurologically shuts down tissues and oftentimes, leaves the patient extremely sore and unable to perform. Most of the time, the trigger points and adhesions return after the patient returns to their daily activities. MPT first starts off with a comprehensive movement analysis, to identify the cause of the patient’s symptoms, not just treat the localized site of pain.

Level 1 Certification Course
The first installment of the MPT Certification track involved the Upper Spine & Extremities. Attendees will have a better understanding of tissue tolerance, tissue capacity, and length tension relationships as they relate to common conditions of the cervical spine, upper thoracic spine, shoulder girdle, elbow, wrist and hand.
Level 2 Certification Course
The first installment of the MPT Certification track involved the Lower Spine & Extremities. Attendees will have a better understanding of tissue tolerance, tissue capacity, and length tension relationships as they relate to common conditions of the lumbar spine, pelvis, hip, knees, and foot/ankle.
In order to maintain “Certified” status, individuals musts complete both Level 1 & 2 certification courses and pass the competency examination at the conclusion of each course. Certified practitioners are required to attend 1 (one) MAST Performance Technique course everyone 2 (two) years to maintain certification status. Failure to comply with the renewal process will result in the practitioner losing their status as a “MPT Certified” practitioner. The distinction of “MPT Certified” can only be used once Level 1 & Level 2 certifications have been completed.
