Question "Matrix Repatterning"

the secretary of the New Brunswick licensing body has asked about this technique--is it within the scope of practice of physiotherapy.

apparently a major insurance company has been asking her for info.

I looked at 2 videos on YouTube--obviously placed there to sell the courses.

Has anyone got some good suggestions, critiques?

The inventor is an osteopath

Is that George Roth's technique? A chiropractor?

Was it called Tensegrity Therapy once upon a time?

It was a chiro. George Roth. It's all about swirling the hands about, off body, I heard.

No wonder Blue Cross is asking questions.

Anybody else got any info?

I think the guy has managed to "sell" the training to PTs.. I don't think it's been banned from PT. Try searching for it here - I'm pretty sure we already have threads about it Mary.

At this time, the whole "theory" underpinning this appraoch is no more scientific than the MFR theory. The approach supposes a "structural" cause of most painful problems.
Quote:
Water-filled internal organs and crystalline bone, due to their density, tend to absorb much of the force of impact injuries and are therefore frequent sites of primary restriction.
One of the tall claims, supported by little else than a fascination with structure and poor Stephen Levin (an orthopod) who says: "it works". No consideration of the nervous system at all. Nada.
garbage.

I found a post (#103) of this thread, Infuriating Chiropractic Garbage, to do with matrix repatterning.
