I came to see Karyn to relieve neck and shoulder pain and tension headaches. I was getting the headaches and pain frequently, and it would last several days each time. I enjoyed my first session very much and booked several more. After a few treatments, I started noticing improvements, Iike I would go longer in between headaches and when I got one, it wouldn’t last as long or be as severe. Then Karyn gave me an exercise to help retrain my muscles, and this really helped me improve. It became automatic for me to do the exercise whenever I felt the tension start in my shoulder and neck, and suddenly I couldn’t remember the last full-blown headache I had. It’s now been a few months and I don’t get the pain and headaches any more. I do my exercise as it occurs to me, and it just takes a moment to do. I can do it at my desk or anywhere and it feels really good. Most importantly, adding the exercise seemed to stabilize my shoulder so the MAT changes were holding between sessions. It was such a relief to not feel that pain anymore, and to feel stronger overall as a result of the treatments. I would highly recommend MAT and Karyn to anyone! She is so knowledgeable, supportive, and dedicated to helping others heal. It’s a such a pleasure to receive a treatment from her! - Heidi Schepis
Karyn Hendricksen’s Muscle Activation Technique cured my debilitating neck, shoulder and back pain 100% and literally returned my health back to me.
I suffered deep neck, shoulder and back pain for years. I tried many remedies to alleviate my pain including cortisol shots, physical therapy, chiropractic, massage and more. These remedies either provided no relief or short term relief. I finally met Karyn and discovered MAT. Karyn was able to get the pain under control with her steady treatments and within weeks, I improved dramatically. After several months of treatments, I recovered 100%. I now receive treatments every month or two for maintenance. I have been referring pain sufferers to Karyn for years and they have all experienced tremendous results like me. - Mindy Weiss
