Understanding Matrix Repatterning

There are so many people living their lives with some kind of condition that they would rather not have.  The problem is, they don’t know what to do about it.  Often times, they have “tried everything” and since nothing has worked completely, they learn to live with their limitations and in some cases, pain.  According to the CDC, an estimated 20% of Americans are living with chronic pain.  Some studies indicate that perhaps as many as 40% of Americans are living in chronic pain.  Pain and other symptoms are caused by many things including injuries, fractures, surgeries, our jobs, sports, our lifestyles – the list is endless.  Did you know that even something as seemingly routine as dental work can leave a person with nagging symptoms they didn’t have before?

Being able to help people who have not found relief with other forms of therapy is one of the biggest rewards for me as a Certified Matrix Repatterning Practitioner.  When I describe Matrix Repatterning to people, more often than not, I can literally see their faces light up with hope that maybe they can get help with a certain condition they have, or they think of a loved one who needs help.  Matrix Repatterning is different than other forms of therapy in that it works on the deeper tissues of the body and it specifically targets areas that have lost their normal electrical pattern due to some form of injury.  When there is an injury on a deeper level, not only are the body’s framework and normal electrical patterns disrupted, but in a chain-reaction pattern, the overlying connective fascia will then become restricted. Because this fascia acts as a fabric sheath throughout the body, a restriction in one area will lead to tension patterns in many places which show up in the more superficial soft tissues like the muscles and ligaments. Imagine if you tug on a piece of fabric or clothing, you will notice that tension or strain patterns pull throughout the fabric.


In the figure above, if there is an injury to the hip, you can see the strain patterns traversing the body in many directions.  So this person may in fact be looking for help with a painful shoulder and not getting any relief.  The shoulder in this case is not the problem.  Until the restriction in the right hip is released, they will likely continue to suffer with that “bad shoulder”.  The beauty of Matrix Repatterning is that by locating and treating restrictions in the body, the strain patterns release and the symptomatic area feels better.  And it stays that way.

A couple of added benefits of Matrix Repatterning are that it is a very gentle, hands-on technique.  It is very common for someone to feel extremely relaxed and refreshed following treatment.   This is because there is more electricity flowing through the body and the inner framework and the fascia are returning to their normal, relaxed state.  And that is our goal.  Matrix Repatterning is the best thing I have found to help people on their path to living a healthy, pain-free life.

    1. Hi Jane! They are two different things. Matrix is very gentle, hands-on and other than making positional changes, there is very little movement on the part of the patient. I am putting together a demo “class” so I can show people what it is all about. I will let you know when I am scheduling it.

  1. This is true. I have survived Lyme recovery only because my body figured it out somehow, I believe I am doing this work on myself and my partner – we both had a lot of trauma damage and the Lyme went undiagnosed for years
