Pat Shockley received her MAT (Muscle Activation Techniques Specialist) certification in 2005. What really impressed her about MAT was that the thought process was completely different from the norm. Instead of addressing tightness, Muscle Activation looks at, why are we tight? She loved the idea of addressing the cause, weakness in the muscles vs the symptom being the tightness. That is the core belief at ABD life — address the cause not the symptom which will unleash your highest potential. After passing her MAT internship it became the main focus of her practice.

Pat’s passion is to help people of all ages get out of pain, stay out of pain and become more resilient to handling the physical stresses that life brings whether your just living life, have a repetitive motion job, love to live an active lifestyle, compete in sports or are an elite athlete.  MAT unleashes the full potential of your muscular system to be your best. It does not matter what your age is, if your body is not compensating you will be able to do more, take more and perform better.

Unleashing your highest potential may need to include a multiple discipline approach so Pat became certified in Dr. Brimhall’s 6-Steps to Wellness Protocol in 2013 and studied nutrition with many well-known doctors in 2013 and the beginning of 2014 including, David Perlmutter MD, Mark Hyman MD, Cheryl Burdette ND, Dan Merkle DC, and more. She currently holds level 1 and 2 certifications in the science based EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique, has also been a massage therapist since 1999 and Nationally Certified in Massage since 2004.
