January of 2006 Julie Devine pulled her hamstring playing softball and was out for several months. She went to a few doctors, therapists, and a personal trainer but her condition worsened. In fact, she was on crutches at the party in April and had given up on the season. Her personal trainer recommended that Julie go see a friend of his, Stephen Spencer, a MAT therapist. When Julie arrived with her husband to see Stephen, she was in tremendous pain. After just one session with Stephen, Julie was almost completely pain free, and able to move about without her crutches.
