What is Matrix Repatterning?
Matrix Repatterning is a new way of understanding, objectively assessing and gently restoring balance within the body. It is a clinically-proven form of manual therapy based on sound scientific principles, utilized around the world by many health-care professionals. Matrix Repatterning restores structural balance, eliminates pain and improves overall health by resolving the problem at the source – literally at the cellular and molecular levels.
It has now been demonstrated that every cell of the body is linked to every other cell by a continuous fabric of molecular strands (extracellular matrix, cytoskeleton), referred to as the Tensegrity Matrix. The matrix is a strong and flexible framework, which appears to function as an intercellular internet, providing mechanical, chemical and electrical signals essential for optimal cellular health. Disruption of this communication system appears to be a factor in many health conditions.
Injuries, such as falls, motor vehicle collisions, sprains/strains and sports injuries are primarily absorbed by the dense core structures of the body, such as the internal organs, due to their fluid content (respond like water balloons with impact) and bone (dense crystalline structure). The response of the molecular structure of the matrix to injury is the creation of a focal area of tension, referred to as a primary restriction.
The structures affected by primary restrictions appear to lose their connection to the cellular communication system, which can lead to many health problems, and pain.
Due to the fact that all of the cells of the body are interconnected by the matrix, a primary restriction in one part of the body, can lead to strain and pain in many other areas (see: Strain Patterns, above). These symptomatic areas are usually blamed for the condition and are often the focus of other forms of treatment. This may provide short-term relief, however, since the source of the injury within the core structures has not been identified or addressed, the condition tends to return or is more easily re-injured.
What makes Matrix Repatterning different is that Certified Matrix Repatterning Practitioners are able to precisely locate the source of the problem (primary restrictions), due to an electronic change in the cell structure, which accompanies the injury. Once this is identified, treatment, using gentle manual pressure is used to encourage the structures contributing to the condition, to return to a normal state of tone. By systematically releasing all of the layers of injury, which have accumulated over a lifetime, Matrix Repatterning can allow the entire body to be restored (repatterned) to optimal, pain-free function.
Matrix Repatterning has helped thousands of individuals suffering from a myriad of conditions such as back, neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, hip, knee and ankle pain, headaches, concussion, as well as numerous other functional conditions (see list below).
How Can Matrix Repatterning Help Me?
The following conditions are associated with structural imbalance and may respond well to Matrix Repatterning**:
Headaches and migraines
Head Injury & Concussion
Dizziness & Ear Noise (Tinnitus)
Temporomandibular Joint Problems (TMJ)
Snoring and apnea
Neck & Upper Back Pain
Low Back Pain
Shoulder & Arm Pain
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Gastro-Esophageal Reflux (GERD)
Hip, Knee, Ankle, Foot Pain
Matrix Repatterning is a clinically-proven method, which has been shown to have a significant benefit with many of these conditions. The treatment of any specific condition is based on the applicable scope of practice of your practitioner.
What Can I Expect from Matrix Repatterning Sessions?
The examination process usually involves a detailed assessment of posture, ranges of motion, neurological signs, joint stability and other tests, when applicable. Treatment is very gentle, since the cells retain the ‘memory’ of the normal structure, and only require precise coaxing in order to be repatterned. A series of treatments can release structural imbalances that have developed and been compensated for, over a lifetime, until the body has been restored to optimal function.
Since long-term imbalances are often being corrected, the body may respond for a period of several days after each treatment. The most common response is a reduction of symptoms, however a temporary aggravation of symptoms may also occur.
