In 1998, Dr. Williams developed the Matrix Reflex Testing method. This energetic testing technique evolved from a combination of the reflex arm length test (AR) originated by Raphael van Assche, DO, from Austria; an assessment of the body’s electromagnetic field adapted from a French physician, Paul Nogier, MD; the use of hand modes and six-channel entry patterns modified from Alan Beardall, DC; and Dr. Williams’ own original contributions (the MRT EMF measurement, Mode Cards, distinction between right versus left arm shortening, the use of the hand chakra in determining clarity versus adaptation, the 6-channel entry patterns, etc.).
MRT is an energetic testing method that evaluates changes in patients’ connective tissue, also known as the “ground substance” or “matrix” tissue. MRT assists doctors and practitioners in determining the underlying cause of a patient’s pain, dysfunction or disease, and the most specific and optimal form of treatment.
MRT is generally a more sensitive method of testing than kinesiology, and thus serves as a useful ancillary test for many kinesiologists. Modern electron microscopy studies have found that the nerves do not actually touch the cells, but that their neurotransmitters are carried from the blind nerve endings through the matrix tissue to their target cells. Through its matrix-mediated assessment, the MRT method therefore more directly measures the body’s extracellular as well as intracellular environments, in contrast to the ANS (autonomic nervous system)-mediated muscle testing. Further, since the matrix tissue is also in direct contact with the hormones through the capillary beds, the subtle disturbances in hormonal functioning can also best be measured through this more sensitive test. This fact, that neither the blood nor the nervous system anatomically contact or innervate the cells, has actually been known as far back as 1845, as Dr. Pischinger and Dr. Heine elucidate in Matrix and Matrix Regulation: "C.B. Reichert (1845) also understood the connective tissue [matrix] not only as a mechanically binding but organically vital (!) medium, and recognized that the nerves and vessels do not actually come into direct contact with the functioning cells at any point in the body, but that the connective tissue is the mediating member, the bearer of the nerve and nutrition flow, and that the reciprocal effects pass through it everywhere. Only the connective tissue has direct contact with all parts of the body (pp. 14 & 15)."

I was diagnosed with crohns, ankylosing spondylitis, arthritis, Leaky gut, and a couple of other things along the way. But ultimately no doctor could really say what I had or provide relief. I visited Dr Kimiai after a 12 year health care journey with little hope, but visited Her at the urging of my father who had so much confidence in her practice. After one very thorough visit with her she diagnosed my situation, gave me a regiment of supplements and a prescription, and within 6 weeks my symptoms were completely gone. It’s been 7 months now and I am still in awe. I haven’t felt this good in 12+ years. I can’t recommend her and her team enough.”
