Selina's story

I originally went to see Dr. LaPierre for pain in my back, neck, left shoulder and both feet.


During my childhood I had experienced two extreme blows to my head, one to the front of my head by a person swinging a baseball bat during a game, the other to the back of my head by a person throwing a rather large rock. Both blows rendered me unconscious for a time. I had also taken a fall while skating as a child and landed on a stump right on my tail bone. I can recall suffering with pain for some time and had difficulty trying to sit and walk.


In my later years I incurred several injuries to my neck, head, back, all resulting in time spent off work, up to and including my last fall which kept me from being able to work for five months. I spent many hours in physio trying to regain strength in my lower back especially.


Tired of living in daily pain, I jumped at the opportunity to meet with Dr. LaPierre for a consultation. After checking me from head to toe, he informed me that I was a mess, but to my relief, a fixable mess.


I received my last Matrix Repatterning treatment a few days ago and during our session Dr. LaPierre asked me “what have you been noticing about your body the last three days?” My reply was “I’ve noticed changes; for example, regular daily bowel movements, something I can't ever remember having. I also noticed more control over my bladder, which over the past several years has been an issue for me. I've also noticed I no longer need to take antacids moments after swallowing my last mouthful of food due to the bloating and gas and discomfort I experience. I can now eat and lay down if I like to, something I haven't been able to do in years. I also noticed that I no longer need to wear my bite plate every night as I have for years, because of the clenching I would do as I slept, and would wake up with a terrible headache if for some reason I forgot to wear it. No more clenching, no more headaches, no more bite plate!


None of these benefits were reasons why I went to see Dr. LaPierre in the first place; however I have reaped them none the less, over and above now living pain free. I can’t tell you that I, in any way understand Matrix Repatterning other than how Dr. LaPierre explained it to me… “You are your whole body, every part makes up the whole, but it’s all of you. When one part of your body hurts, your whole body hurts.”


What I can tell you is this: I live a pain free, richer life today because of it and Dr. LaPierre and I am excited for what tomorrow holds because today I am a mess no more.


Sincerely Grateful
