MAT® Success Stories

I have continued to work with Chris these past six years, beginning MAT®Rx sessions about a year and a half ago. I have gained strength, control, and overall awareness of my body in this time, and have been able to reverse some of the weaknesses I had developed due to Spinal Muscular Atrophy. My knees only give in times of extreme fatigue, and my body recovers much faster than it did pre-MAT®. Having endured many years without proper contractibility, I can certainly feel when a muscle is contracting properly; it oftentimes brings me to tears, I am so thankful.

I have been doing MAT? work with Chris Verdi since 2012, and I continue to do MAT® with Chris because it greatly improves my life. MAT® has helped with many of my long-term problems, among them, foot issues I’ve had since childhood. My feet always ached, and the orthotics prescribed by various doctors over the years didn’t really help. Now, after doing MAT®, my feet are happily orthotic-free and pain-free. MAT® also helped relieve my chronic back pain by helping me achieve better core stability. I continue to do MAT? to stay ahead of any issues that arise.

I started MAT® treatments from Chris Verdi a year ago for my chronic low back, neck/shoulder, and foot pain. I had tried physical therapy, chiropractic treatments, as well as acupuncture, but nothing really worked. With his skills and extensive knowledge, he is able to reactivate the weak, shut-down muscles that caused the pain. I am no longer in constant pain and always quickly recovered from flare-ups that would have kept me home for weeks in the past. I am truly grateful to have Chris in the state of NJ!
