Get the results you’re looking for

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 Reptterning. Matrix Repatterning is a gentle hands on therapy that relieves tension in the body at a very deep level. The technique acknowledges the interconnected nature of the body and is able to identify the hidden underlying tension patterns that contribute to our main complaints. 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 for months with post concussive symptoms were recovering, finally getting their life back. Matrix Repatterning was transforming people’s lives, and it continues to do so.

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.

Who can benefit?

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.

Here’s a partial list of the conditions I treat:

  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Concussion injuries
  • Dizziness and Ear Noise
  • TMJ (jaw pain)
  • Circulatory and respiratory problems
  • Back, neck or joint pain
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Scoliosis
  • Weak muscle patterns
  • Shoulder, arm, wrist pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Digestive complaints
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Insomnia
  • Snoring & sleep apnea
  • Restricted movement
  • Acute impact and strain injuries
  • Chronic and complex pain syndromes

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.

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.

How to reduce osteoarthritic pain

For those plagued by osteoarthritis simple things like walking down stairs, opening a jar, or kneeling on the ground can become difficult and painful. In the early stages of osteoarthritis there's little to no pain in a joint but in later stages pain can get so bad it...

What doctors and clients are saying about Matrix Repatterning

I use Matrix Repatterning with a variety of diagnoses: from sports injuries to painful joints and chronic pain. I am excited about the results, seeing significant functional improvement and pain reduction in just a few visits.

I view it as prudent to have a Matrix assessment after a blow to the head…Observing such cases has led me to hope that one day Matrix Repatterning will be routinely applied in hospital emergency departments.
