Dave is currently taking new clients at the South side location.

Please call or email to schedule an appointment with Dave.

 

Dave was introduced to MAT in 2003 like many of his clients; dealing with several physical problems for years that no other treatment methods seemed to be able to address (e.g., chronic neck pain, chronic back pain, hip bursitis, plantar fasciitis, shoulder dislocations, patella-femoral issues, IT band problems …just to name a few). He also survived a series of surgeries to remove a rather large brain tumor in 2002 that just added to the list of problems.  After spending years trying to rehabilitate and figure out why these injuries were recurring all over his body he reluctantly had to quit exercising all together.  In 2003, he was referred to a newer method called "Muscle Activation Techniques” while having a conversation with a coworker.  Dave had nothing to lose so that spring he attended a continuing education workshop in Chicago with Greg Roskopf.  He learned more in that 4-hour-workshop than he had in the previous four years searching for answers.  From that point forward he has immersed himself in MAT and the study of body mechanics at an unparalleled level.  He ended up becoming his own guinea pig to not only learn his craft but to experience the outcome personally.  Currently he is pain free, enjoys an active lifestyle, and is able to play with his wife and kids with little to no worries of pain or injury.

 

Dave holds a degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis on Exercise Science from Indiana University Bloomington. Throughout his career he has been a guest speaker several times for the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and many well known Universities.

Noah is currently taking new clients at the South side location.

Please call or email to schedule an appointment with Noah.

Noah has worked as a MAT specialist since 2015 and continues to strive for knowledge and improve his techniques with MAT mastery, biomechanics, and nutrition.

 

After a disabling ankle issue came out of no-where and made it difficult to even walk, Noah started searching for answers. After traditional methods failed to help fix the issue, he was introduced to MAT and could not believe something like it existed and wasn’t being utilized in the mainstream. It not only helped, but it fixed the issue at its core.

 

He is an avid fan of the outdoors, hiking, and camping and spends a great deal of his time with the local ultimate disc community where he volunteers and competes at the club level.

Sara is currently taking new clients at the North & South side locations.

Please call or email to schedule an appointment with Sara.

Sara Durham has worked in the health and fitness industry for over 16 years. Her passion for health and wellness translates into helping individuals' achieve their goals through physical activity and injury prevention.

 

Sara was introduced to MAT in 2006 by a coworker after discussing and receiving treatment for injuries she suffered through years of playing competitive volleyball.  At the time she also worked in the corporate fitness industry where she personal trained, instructed group fitness classes, and coached individuals to live a healthy life.  The biggest obstacle that prevented her clients from obtaining their health and fitness goals was pain and injuries sustained through rigorous exercise and strains of daily life.  After experiencing success through MAT treatment for her own injuries, Sara decided to make the leap to become a MAT certified specialist so she can help her clients experience the same benefit.

 

Sara created Muscular Synergy, a health based practice dedicated to helping individuals improve their quality of life through health, wellness and injury prevention.  In addition to her MAT Specialist certification, Sara holds a degree in Physical Education with emphasis on Corporate Fitness.  Her passion for helping others never stops as she is currently working towards MAT mastery level and a Precision Nutrition level 1 certification.

Sarah is currently taking new clients at the North side location.

Please call or email to schedule an appointment with Sarah.

Sarah Gheen is a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) as well as a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT). She also holds a certification in Emergency Response for the Athlete (ERA). Her passion to help others live healthier, happier lives has included working as an ATC in college, high school and industrial settings as well as working as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor.

 

After suffering from chronic knee issues for 20+ years, Sarah had tried practically every treatment option and found little to no relief. Some treatments worked temporarily but none allowed her to return to the active lifestyle she loves. Enter MAT. After a handful of sessions she was convinced she had to pursue an MAT certification in order to offer this amazing tool to others. Sarah is a MAT Full Body Specialist and plans to continue her education through the Mastery and Rx levels.

 

She has a passion for working with athletes of all types from elite to weekend warriors. As a wife and mother of 3 she knows the desire to live an active, pain free life is not limited to athletes. MAT is a unique tool that serves anyone dealing with muscular pain and dysfunction. It gives HOPE that there is an alternative to those who had previously resigned themselves to live with pain . MAT has changed Sarah’s life, first as a client and now as a practitioner.

 

Sarah would rather be outdoors than anywhere else. She enjoys hiking, biking, swimming, working with her horses or pretty much any activity that gets her outside. Being the mom of 3 teenagers is the highlight of her life as well as the joy that comes from being married to an incredible man for 20+ years.
