Have you been puzzled by your pain and feel that no matter what you do, it will always be there and will just keep coming back?


Have you been feeling that you’re not exercising efficiently; that your body is imbalanced and, no matter what you do, your weak side stays weak while your strong side gets stronger?


Are you finding that your body is perhaps more susceptible to injury and you are constantly getting one injury after another?


Well then, perhaps it is time to try MAT™ – Muscle Activation Techniques.



  • MAT™ is a biomechanically-based process designed to evaluate and correct muscular imbalances that contribute to chronic pain and injury.

  • MAT™ is a revolutionary approach to the assessment and correction of muscular imbalances, joint instability, and limitations in Range of Motion.

  • MAT™ is a unique and effective system that aims to “jumpstart” the muscles in order for them to function with maximum efficiency.

  • MAT™ is for EVERYONE from elite athletes to rehabilitation patients, and anyone in between.



  • MAT™ checks the integrity of the neurological connection between the brain and muscles. It determines whether or not the brain is properly signaling to your muscles to contract when necessary

  • MAT™ identifies which muscles are not receiving neural input by performing range of motion tests

  • MAT™ improves the stability of your joints by reactivating muscles and restoring their ability to contract on demand

  • MAT™ provides a checks and balances system to make sure that any time mobility is increased, there is appropriate input and therefore contraction during this motion



  • MAT™ addresses the weakness before an injury occurs. Conventional therapy will typically treat the symptom, but the cause of the problem is typically left unaddressed. The end result is that the athlete or the patient does not heal, or they go on to experience repetitive injuries or a more severe injury. MAT™ focuses on the cause of pain.

  • MAT™ not only helps to prevent injuries, but it can also assist a rehabilitation process. By balancing the muscular system, MAT™ provides an improved environment for restoring physical performance.

  • MAT™ prepares the body to be more efficient in training and athletic performance. It helps athletes recover from competitive stress quickly and help them prevent future injuries.




“On top of being an excellent Pilates coach, Basma introduced me to the Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) that did wonders for me. For many years I felt some muscle limitations and imbalances in my body probably due to bad posture acquired from working mostly in a seated position. Basma “explored” each and every muscle to find the “elephant” (i.e. the main problem) and then fixed it using the MAT. The limitations eased right away and I felt better aligned and balanced afterward. Truly amazing!

Thank you Basma!” — Fadila B


“I had very bad back pain and Basma did wonders for me through her MAT sessions. The pain is no longer there and my sciatica is long gone … thanks a lot Basma” — Mona M


“I had hip pain for several years which was limiting my ability to exercise. I decided to try MAT and after one session the pain resolved. It has been almost a year and I am still pain free.” — Andrea K
