If you’re looking for lasting pain relief and improved quality of life, I may be able to help. Much of the work I do in clinic focuses on the use of a break-through technique called Matrix Repatterning, a gentle hands on therapy that relieves tension in the body at a very deep level. When I first starting using Matrix Repatterning 4 years ago, I was astounded by the results. People with chronic, complex pain were free of pain for the first time in years. Others that had been suffering with post concussive symptoms were recovering, finally getting their life back. Matrix Repatterning was transforming people’s lives, and it continues to do so.

How the therapy works

Matrix Repatterning uses a unique electromagnetic procedure to find the hidden tension patterns in our body that contribute to pain and restriction. Essentially, every cell in our body is like a little battery, containing an electric charge. When cells get injured due to impact or strain, their charge changes. With the therapy, we can zero in on these tension areas, and determine the precise location of injury. You can think of these tension patterns like train tracks, heading out in different directions. Once the location and direction of a tension track is determined, light compression (applied with the hands) along the length of the track triggers a response in the tissue to normalize. This often leads to rapid increases in range of motion and pain reduction. 

A brief introduction to Matrix Repatterning

The Matrix backstory

Dr. George Roth first developed the Matrix Repatterning technique in the early 1990’s. Since that time the technique has evolved into a complete assessment and treatment approach that can treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Over the years multiple case studies and x-ray evidence has been presented to various medical institutions to prove the effectiveness of the therapy.

About Me

My name is Oliver Hartan, and I’m Registered Massage Therapist specializing in Matrix Repatterning. With 10 years of hands on experience I’ve had the opportunity to work with people of all ages, treating a variety of health conditions.

In the not so distant past, I taught anatomy at Kikkawa College, a private Massage Therapy school based in Toronto. While at Kikkawa, I also mentored massage therapy students in student clinic.

Currently, I’m working with Dr. George Roth as an assistant educator for the Matrix Institute.

I live in Owen Sound, Ontario with my wife and son. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring in nature, and making chocolate.

Who can benefit from treatment?

Because Matrix Repatterning is so gentle and non-invasive, all age groups can benefit from the treatment. I have worked with infants, adults and the elderly. I’ve seen Matrix Repatterning enhance athlete’s performance, and significantly improve the quality of life for trades people, office workers, military personnel, law enforcement and people who have sustained serious physical traumas throughout their lives.

Your timeline to wellness

Many people ask me how long it will take to feel better once they start receiving Matrix Repatterning. This is difficult to answer without fully assessing a person, but as a general rule, Matrix Repatterning can significantly restore function, and greatly reduce one’s pain within 8-12 treatments. For some people, I’ll need to extend treatment beyond 12 sessions to get the results they are looking for. The good news is that there’s an end in sight. Once treatment is completed, follow-up appointments are booked as the need arises. Many people experience lasting pain relief, and do not require ongoing monthly maintenance treatments.

A recommendation to new clients

For first time clients, I recommend booking 6-8 treatments. Ideally appointments are spaced one week apart, but if need be, appointments can be spaced farther apart to suit your needs. My schedule books three months in advance and if one waits until their initial appointment to book a follow-up, they will have to wait another three months to get in. There is no obligation to keep all of your booked treatments. If you find that Matrix Repatterning isn’t right for you, it’s easy to cancel those booked appointments.

Cancellation Policy

Stuff happens, I understand. This is why I give all of my clients one free missed appointment per year. In the event of a second missed appointment, or less than 24 hours notice of cancellation, I charge a cancellation fee which amounts to 60% of the cost of the missed appointment.  

If you can’t make it to your appointment, let me know right away. To cancel or re‐schedule an appointment, please call the office during business hours. If you are calling after hours or no one picks up the phone during the day, you can leave a detailed message. You may also cancel your appointment online, but you must do so 48 hours before your treatment.
