The Founder

Patrick Mummy, Founder/CEO

Patrick R. Mummy is the founder and CEO of Symmetry, the parent company to the seminar series Symmetry Core and Symmetry Complete, and the author of the nationally acclaimed book, Symmetry, Relieve Pain and Optimize Physical Motion.
Patrick’s degree in Athletic Training, with an emphasis in Applied Kinesiology and Biomechanics, combined with his exposure as a Division One athlete for the San Diego State Men’s baseball program, led to his discovery of the deficits of traditional and alternative therapies in curing physical pain. His unparalleled success in achieving excellence academically and athletically during his career culminated in his election as San Diego State’s Scholar Athlete of the Year, as well as Most Valuable Player in 1993.

After graduating from San Diego State University in 1994, Patrick was selected to work for the famous Egoscue Method in San Diego, CA, which provided him with the second key to understanding the causation of pain, which is the importance of compensation as it relates to gravity. In 1997 Patrick founded Symmetry, the Pain Relief Clinic, to help complete his journey in understanding postural therapy. Soon after he discovered the missing link of most rehabilitation therapies; the lack of an objective, measurable way of analyzing, sequencing and implementing therapeutic exercises to effectively and efficiently rid one of chronic pain and to optimize physical performance. This system is now formally known as Symmetry and has been officially granted a U.S. Patent.

With over 15 years experiencing, analyzing and treating the physiological and biomechanical workings of the human muscular-skeletal system as an amateur and semi-professional athlete, Egoscue Therapist, and Symmetry practitioner, Patrick innovated the Symmetry For Health Seminar and Software Program in 2003 to satisfy the needs of today’s practitioners and clients seeking a permanent solution to curing physical pain for the long-term. Patrick’s groundbreaking methodology, which includes objectively assessing and revealing muscular weaknesses and imbalances via the patented on-line software program, utilizes unique and proven successful patented tools to generate a specific set of therapeutic isometric and isotonic Symmetry postures customized for each individual. Symmetry receiving international recognition, most notably in the arena of assisting practitioners to dramatically boost their success through the implementation of the revolutionary Symmetry program that aids in curing their patients without the use of drugs, manipulation, surgery, expensive equipment or any invasive procedures.
