So many of us struggle with chronic pain and restriction. The solution to resolving these ailments lies in understanding how past injuries have imprinted themselves into the deep-core structures of our body.

Without addressing these old injury patterns it’s very difficult to get the results we are looking for.

Much of the work I do in clinic focuses on the use of a groundbreaking manual therapy called Matrix Repatterning. 

Matrix Repatterning can accurately identify the location of old injury patterns in the body and effectively treat them.

When I first starting using Matrix Repatterning 5 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.

A Brief Introduction to Matrix Repatterning

What The Experts Are Saying

This procedure can be very helpful for… traumatic brain injuries and other head injuries, even as a first intervention. Observing such cases has led me to hope that one day Matrix Repatterning will be routinely applied in hospital emergency departments.

During my career as a physiotherapist, I have searched for the most effective, lasting treatment for my patients. Matrix Repatterning was the missing piece of the puzzle which has allowed me to take my practice to the next level.

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.

Getting Started With Treatment

Matrix Repatterning is for all ages

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

 As a general rule, the Matrix Repatterning Therapy 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. Most people experience lasting pain relief, and do not require ongoing maintenance treatments.

Booking recommendations for first time clients

If you’re booking in for the first time, I suggest setting up at least 6-8 treatments. Ideally sessions are spaced one week apart, but if need be, appointments can be spaced farther apart to suit your needs. Booking your appointments in advance makes the ongoing treatment planning much easier. After our first visit, I’ll be able to tell you if I can help, and how long I think it will take to reach your health goals. If for some reason additional treatment is not necessary or appropriate, we can cancel any booked appointments you have. To book in, you can do so online by clicking on the Schedule Now button below in the Book An Appointment section, or by calling me at the office.

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.
