WELCOME, I am Karyn elise


I am passionate about helping you live without pain and movement restriction. As a mom, wife, and business owner, I know the daily stress and physical demands we all face. I have healed myself from a severe car accident using the Mindful Muscle Method and am on a mission to help you do the same.

Thank you for landing on my website and putting your trust in me.


I’m Karyn Elise Hendricksen, M.S. Exercise Physiologist, former M.A.T. specialist and the founder of the Mindful Muscle Method™, a unique, science-based exercise program to safely recover from injuries and chronic pain.

Over the past 15 years, I’ve helped thousands of clients through my program which combines gentle, science-based muscle activation with mind-body techniques to allow your body to heal and learn proper mechanics to prevent future injury.

While earning my Master’s degree, I was in an auto accident. I found myself frustrated at the options available to me through insurance. Then I discovered M.A.T. (Muscle Activation Technique) techniques, which treat the cause of pain by testing, correcting and maintaining muscle contractile efficiency. I couldn’t believe the results on my neck pain and range of motion after just one session. I was so impressed with the results, I got certified in this therapy after graduate school.

For the last five years, I have studied the connection of emotion to physical pain. I also LOVE the healing power of essential oils and incorporate those as well.

It is my mission to make these techniques accessible to anyone and easy to do. There are so many people out there suffering in pain and not able to move and if I can make an impact on improving their lives that is the greatest reward.
