Chiro + Hypnosis

In person sessions are always preferred for both the hypnotherapist and the person being hypnotized, however, we can also have successful sessions via video conferencing. 

Please feel free to listen to one of the free sessions online or for purchase.  More individualized sessions are available when you schedule your first appointment.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a trance-like state in which we have improved focus, concentration and suggestibility to the subconscious mind.  The person usually feels relaxed, calm, and is better able to tune out distraction to be able to focus on one topic intently.  It is important to note that the individual is not asleep, nor does the individual lose control of their actions.  What does occur is that the individual is more open to suggestions, which allows for modification of behavior, emotions, perceptions and sensations.

What is a Medical Hypnotherapist? and What do they do?

A Medical Hypnotherapist provides specific visualizations and suggestions while you are in hypnosis for a myriad of symptoms that relate to everyday stressors.  We have had successful sessions for anticipatory nausea, cancer fighting visualization, IBS or other abdominal issues, regulating chronic pain, improving blood sugar stabilization, insomnia relief, improved concentration, becoming a non-smoker and even weight loss.

How do you understand the Subconscious Mind? Is it dangerous?

To understand the subconscious mind, we must first define the conscious mind. 

The conscious mind is where we have our linear and analytical thinking.  It’s also known as the Beta mind because the brainwaves are in the beta wavelengths.  In yoga and/or meditation, the conscious mind is also that non-stop chatter, usually negative in self-talk, that prevents us from accessing our natural problem- solving abilities or to perceive from different perspectives.

The subconscious mind is the alpha wavelengths and even deeper theta wavelengths of brain wave activity.  This is where we feel relaxation, serenity, and creativity.  This is where our memories, behavior and emotions are created and stored.  Hypnosis is simply having a conversation with the subconscious mind.  Hypnosis is different from guided visualization or guided meditation in that hypnosis is specific to the personalized goals of the person being hypnotized.  It is important to form a relationship with your hypnotherapist so that you have trust and confidence during your personalized session.

What should you expect while experiencing hypnosis?

While experiencing hypnosis, it is common to wonder if you’re really being hypnotized or not.  That’s perfectly normal.  You may feel the need to move around or scratch the tip of your nose.  You may be asked to nod your head or raise your hand.  Hypnosis can be interactive or just simply relaxing.  While under hypnosis, time seems to stand still.  Sometimes a 15 minute session may feel like hours.  In fact, 15 minutes of hypnosis is equivalent to 3 hours of sleep.  On occasion, you may feel like you’ve fallen asleep and not remember what was said to you.  That’s okay too, because the hypnotherapist is still speaking with your subconscious mind, giving you suggestions that you can access at any time.

What can hypnosis do for you?

Hypnosis can alleviate symptoms in a few sessions, or maybe take quite a few sessions, depending on how deeply the symptoms are embedded in your subconscious mind.  What helps to make your hypnosis really work is listening to your hypnosis session repeatedly.  Twice a day works best, usually once in the morning and once at night.  In order to create permanent behavior changes in your life, some work at home and between sessions is required.  As always, the choice is yours.

Why chiropractic + hypnosis?

Chiropractic addresses the physical stress of the body from a neuro-musculo-skeletal standpoint and re-balancing of the nervous system.  When we are experiencing stress in the mind, this also affects the body chemically by releasing stress hormones, creating inflammation and distress in the nervous system, causing a whole host of dysfunction such as high blood pressure or high blood sugar in diabetes, and chronic pain or chronic illnesses.  Dr. Seebacher takes a thorough health history that may reveal more than just a physical adjustment may be needed.  Hypnosis is a great tool in connecting with the body’s innate intelligence that fosters healing, regaining and maintaining a person’s health, especially when combined with a chiropractic adjustment.  This form of whole person healing helps to release the physical and emotional aspects of trauma.
