F.A.S.T.—flexibility, agility, stability and tenacity—are qualities that patients can experience via Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) therapy, offered by physical therapist Emily Yenor of 1212 Bodyworks, in Brookfield.

MAT is a systematic, whole-body process that was developed to identify and correct muscle imbalances due to muscle weakness. The modality helps the muscle system work more efficiently through a combination of hands-on techniques and gentle, precise exercises. Patients can experience increased strength and endurance, improved range of motion in bones and joints; improved muscle contractions for more graceful, fluid motions; and better support for static and dynamic activities.

Yenor graduated from Marquette University in 1999 with a Master of Physical Therapy degree. She has worked as a physical therapist in Illinois, Wisconsin and California. She earned MAT certification in 2010 and, according to Yenor, is currently Wisconsin’s only physical therapist practicing MAT.

Location: 19601 W. Bluemound Rd., Ste. 100, Brookfield. For more information, call 414-405-3956, email 1212BodyWorks@gmail.com or visit 1212BodyWorks.com.
