Integrated Manual Therapy

What if you could get the results you always wanted?



If traditional therapy has not given you the results you have been looking for, I may be able to help you with an integrated manual therapy approach for your treatment.

After over twenty five years in the health care field working with and treating grass root athletes, Olympic and Paralymic athletes, weekend warriors and desk jockeys I have found there is more than one way to treat the body. Along with traditional relaxation, deep tissue and pregnancy massage and Athletic Therapy,  I discovered an integrated manual therapy approach to treating with gentle, non invasive, non aggressive complimentary therapies.


 Introducing Matrix Repatterning


   A few years ago I came across a unique evolutionary technique called Matrix Repatterning. 

   A gentle hands on therapy that relieves tension in the body at a very deep level. I was amazed with the results of this treatment

   I integrated it into my Massage and Athletic Therapy treatments. Clients are feeling lighter in their legs, moving and feeling better from head to toe.

   At first I thought it was too good to be true. Matrix Repatterning alone or integrated with other gentle therapies like craniosacral therapy,  myofascial release, visceral manipulation and matrix manual therapy was and is helping people with chronic pain, relieving tension headaches and more.

   Clients with concussions are getting relief they that had never had before. Matrix Repatterning has given me and the clients in my practice an excellent base for rehabilitation, treatment and healing.

For the longest time I always thought that deeper pressure was the solution to all the issues that I treated. If my pressure was not deep enough, it was not effective. To my surprise and the delight of many of my clients, this unique way of treating the body works!

What is Matrix Repatterning Therapy


Matrix Repatterning is an evolutionary way of understanding, objectively assessing and gently restoring balance within the body. It is a non-invasive, non-aggressive gentle  hands on therapy based on sound scientific principles. It is a clinically effective way of restoring structural balance, eliminating pain and improving your overall health at the cellular and molecular levels.


   It is common knowledge that the body is a conductor of electricity. You are an electromagnetic being. Think of the cells in our body like a battery that contains an electric charge.

The charge and the shape of the cell change when a cell gets injured by too much stress, strain or impact.   Think of a normal functioning cell like a soccer ball. It is round and it rolls. If it receives too much stress, strong impact or a strain to it, it changes shape and no longer functions properly. Structure determines function. The change in the shape in the cell will also affect the cells that surround it and that will lead to issues elsewhere in the body. In the picture to the right you can see the that the area of restriction (*) leads to tension patterns in the body.

   Matrix Repatterning uses a unique electromagnetic procedure to find the hidden tension patterns – changes the body’s electrical charge or electromagnetic frequency in our body that contributes to pain and restriction. With the Matrix Repatterning Therapy, we isolate the areas of tension areas due to their altered electrical charge, determining the exact area of injury or restriction. From here, gentle pressure is applied to the injured area in a precise manner, initiating a response in the tissue to normalize. This often leads to rapid increases in range of motion and pain reduction.

The Development of Matrix Repatterning

   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.

Because Matrix Repatterning is so gentle and non-invasive, all age groups can benefit from the treatment. I have worked with children, adults and the elderly. All you need to do is wear comfortable clothing for your assessment and treatment.

Your Timeline to Feeling, Moving and Living Better

As a general rule, the Matrix Repatterning Therapy can significantly restore function, and greatly reduce one’s pain within 4-12 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 maintenance treatments.

An Integrated Manual Therapy Approach for Treatment

Matrix Repatterning resolves issues with the body from the inside out at the cellular level. This type of therapy is stand alone and as I have found also integrates well with other therapies. Matrix Repatterning continues to grow and evolve as a therapy more and more every year.

I integrate Matrix Repatterning with Craniosacral Therapy, Myofascial Release and a few other techniques.
