Matrix Repatterning is a form of manual (hands-on) therapy, which is applied to the deeper, denser parts of the body, such as the skeletal framework (bone) and the dense fibrous tissues (fascia) associated with the internal core structures. Areas of injury and strain may be precisely located based on an alteration in the mechanical and electrical properties within these tissues. Treatment involves the application of gentle pressure in order to release tissue tension, which can facilitate the restoration of muscle tone, flexibility, joint mobility and optimal biomechanical function.
It has now been demonstrated that every cell of the body is linked to every other cell by a continuous fabric of molecular strands (extra cellular 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. These symptomatic areas 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 reinjured.
What makes Matrix Repatterning different is that Certified Matrix Repatterning Practioners (CMRP’s) 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. Please see the list below.
These conditions often respond well to Matrix Repatterning.
The examination process usually involves a detailed assessment of postural balance, movement patterns, muscle tone, joint mobility, neurological function and other tests. It also includes a careful determination of the precise locations and directions of the primary restrictions. Treatment is generally painless. Each area may need to be treated in several, slightly different directions to release the entire pattern and several primary areas may be treated in any one session.
Since long-term imbalances are often being corrected, the body may respond for a period of several days after the treatment. The brain tends to adapt to chronic conditions and pain. Treatment may re-awaken some of this stored information causing a temporary aggravation of symptoms. Certain home-care measures may be recommended to help your body adapt to these changes more comfortably.
The assessment is repeated at each subsequent visit. Further layers of restriction are usually revealed and released. This is similar to an archeological excavation. A series of treatments can release all of the structural imbalances developed over a lifetime.
The purpose of the assessment is to locate the sources of restriction in the body. The molecular restriction is actually an electrical disturbance. A normal electrical field placed near a disturbed one will tend to move it towards normal. Therefore, when the practitioner places his or her hand (this is a normal field) over an area of restriction, it will temporarily be shifted toward normal, thus reducing the molecular tension. Since the matrix is interconnected, the rest of the body will relax slightly. This is something the practitioner can detect and the patient can often feel as well.
The process is continued until all of the restrictions are identified. The practitioner will then determine the priority in which these areas are to be treated.
Treatments are very gentle. They involve the use of precise localized pressure referred to as induction or a gentle springing type of motion called recoil. These techniques are designed to release the trapped electrical energy within the restricted area. When this happens, the molecular structure returns to its natural, flexible state. This is a permanent correction and it will not return unless another significant trauma occurs.
The practitioner may also use other forms of therapy to support the healing process and to release scar tissue.
Matrix Repatterning was developed by Dr. George Roth and represents the culmination of over 20 years of study and research 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.
