Matrix Repatterning and the Theory Behind It

Matrix Repatterning is a manual (hands on) form of therapy that relieves the source of injury within the deeper core structures of the body, such as the skeletal framework (bone) and dense fibrous tissue (fascia) surrounding the fluid-filled internal organs. 

Research has determined that many injuries are absorbed into these deeper core structures.  The cells within these structures can expand and form a deep source of tension, or primary restriction.  That primary restriction can form a strain pattern which can cause other parts of the body to become strained and painful, even though they are not the source of the problem.  It is through a strong, flexible, continuous fabric made of proteins and filaments interconnecting the entire body, called the Tensegrity Matrix, that primary restrictions in one part of the body produce strain patterns and lead to symptoms in other parts of the body.

Conditions Associated with Structural Imbalance
  1. Headaches & migraines

  2. Head injury & concussion

  3. Dizziness & ear noise (tinnitus)

  4. Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) problems

  5. Snoring & sleep apnea

  6. Neck & upper back pain

  7. Low back pain

  8. Scoliosis

  9. Shoulder & arm pain

  10. Carpal tunnel syndrome

What Can I Expect From a Matrix Repatterning Treatment?

An initial assessment is conducted to determine structural alignment, range of motion, joint mobility, neurological involvement, muscle tone and other tests.  The assessment includes a precise determination of areas of primary restrictions.  Once all the restrictions have been identified, the practitioner will determine the priority of the restrictions.

Treatment then commences with the highest priority primary restriction, first by determining the general vector (direction) involved in the restriction and then by applying gentle pressure in the direction of the vector indicated.  The area may need to be treated in several different directions before the restriction is resolved.  The treatment may result in the temporary re-awakening of old symptoms, fatigue, cold, or feeling flu-like symptoms.  These symptoms generally dissipate in one to three days.  Home care may be recommended to help the body adjust to the changes.

Each treatment begins with an assessment of primary restrictions.  Since primary restrictions have been built up over a lifetime of falls, car accidents, surgeries with the resulting scars and other injuries, the resulting restrictions may need to be released in a series of treatments. 

The Extraordinary Success of Matrix Repatterning

Matrix Repatterning is a revolutionary approach to pain resolution.  Developed by Dr. George Roth, Matrix Repatterning represents the culmination of over 30 years of his own research and studies with leading specialists from around the world into the structural basis of health.  Practitioners throughout the world, who have studied and applied these principles, are finding remarkable success in relieving many acute and chronic conditions.
