What is Martix Repatterning?
Matrix Repatterning is a form of manual (hands-on) therapy, which is applied to the deeper, denser parts of the body, such as the skeletal framework (bone) and the dense fibrous tissues (fascia) associated with the internal core structures. Areas of injury and strain may be precisely located based on an alteration in the mechanical and electrical properties within these tissues. Treatment involves the application of gentle pressure in order to release tissue tension, which can facilitate the restoration of muscle tone, flexibility, joint mobility and optimal biomechanical function.
What should I expect in a Matrix Repatterning session?
The examination process usually involves a detailed assessment of posture, ranges of motion, neurological signs, joint stability and other tests, when applicable. Your practitioner will determine the location of the primary restrictions, in order to formulate a treatment plan. Treatment is very gentle, since the cells retain the ‘memory’ of the normal structure, and only require precise coaxing in order to be repatterned. A series of treatments can release structural imbalances that have developed and been compensated for, over a lifetime, until the body has been restored to optimal function.
Since long-term imbalances are often being corrected, the body may respond for a period of several days after each treatment. The most common response is a reduction of symptoms, however a temporary aggravation of symptoms may also occur.
How many treatments will I need?
The average number of treatments a patient will need is between 6 and 12.
How should I expect to feel after my treatment?
Treatments are gentle, non-invasive, and support the body toward normalization of function. Symptoms of pain, however, are subjective, and fluctuations in the sensation of pain are not unusual, as the nervous system responds to the changes created by treatment. Other temporary effects may also occur, due to the changes in cellular function, and may include fatigue, mild nausea, or even flu-like symptoms. Our suggestion is to relax, and allow the body the time to adapt to these changes, and support your body through rest, increased water intake, and other supportive measures, which may be recommended by your Matrix Repatterning practitioner.
