Manual Therapy: More Information


(Dr. Roth, Founder of Matrix Repatterning, introduces Matrix Repatterning in this brief video.)

Matrix Repatterning is a clinically-proven form of manual therapy based on sound, scientific principles. This work restores structural balance, eliminates pain, and improves overall health by resolving the problem at the source – literally at the cellular and molecular levels.

It has now been scientifically demonstrated that every cell of the body is linked to every other cell by a continuous fabric of molecular strands (extracellular matrix, cytoskeleton), referred to as the Tensegrity Matrix. The matrix is a strong and flexible framework, which appears to function as an intercellular internet, providing mechanical, chemical and electrical signals essential for optimal cellular health. Disruption of this communication system appears to be a factor in many health conditions.

Injuries, such as falls, motor vehicle collisions, sprains/strains and sports injuries are primarily absorbed by the dense core structures of the body, such as internal organs: due to their fluid content, and bone (dense crystalline structure). The response of the molecular structure of the matrix to injury is the creation of a focal area of tension, referred to as a primary restriction.

The structures affected by primary restrictions appear to lose their connection to the cellular communication system, which can lead to many health problems, and pain.

Due to the fact that all of the cells of the body are interconnected by the matrix, a primary restriction in one part of the body, can lead to strain and pain in many other areas. These symptomatic areas (i.e. places of pain) are usually blamed for the condition and are often the focus of other forms of treatment. This may provide short-term relief, however, since the source of the injury within the core structures has not been identified or addressed, the condition tends to return or is more easily re-injured.

What makes Matrix Repatterning different is that Certified Matrix Repatterning Practitioners* are able to precisely locate the source of the problem (primary restrictions), due to an electronic change in the cell structure, which accompanies the injury. Once this is identified, treatment, using gentle manual pressure is used to encourage the structures contributing to the condition, to return to a normal state of tone. By systematically releasing all of the layers of injury, which have accumulated over a lifetime, Matrix Repatterning can allow the entire body to be restored (repatterned) to optimal, pain-free function.  (Paraphrased from
