The Mindful Muscle Method

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.

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.
