Treat Complex Pain in a Simple Effective Way

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 and the shape of the cell is altered. With the therapy, we can zero in on these tension areas due to their altered electrical charge, determining the precise location of injury. From here, pressure is applied to the injured area in specific manner, triggering 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.

Breakthrough Concussion Treatment

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.
