If you live with chronic pain, unhealthy habits, or other things you would like to change, Dr. Alan Fluger at Brea Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Brea, CA, offers hypnotherapy and more to help you achieve your goals.

Hypnotherapy and Chiropractic Care

Some people have preconceptions that make them feel uncertain about particular techniques. Hypnotherapy is one of them. From doubt that it will work to fears it allows someone else to control a person’s mind, hypnosis tends to get a bad rap. This isn’t unusual, and it’s completely understandable as it’s so misunderstood.

Can you remember a time when you were incredibly productive? You were able to block out all distractions and focus intensely on the task in front of you. It could have been anything from putting a block sculpture together in childhood to deep cleaning a room. You were in a zone and accomplished the task at hand.

That zone is something hypnosis works with. The provider helps the patient reach this state of intense focus and concentration, blocking out negative self-talk and distractions. They can then speak to your subconscious mind to help you achieve your goals.

For example, quitting smoking can be very difficult to manage – if you are relying on the conscious mind. This is the part of the brain that typically creates or stores the negative self-talk and the doubt you have that you can accomplish something. If you can get beyond this, you have a higher chance of success.

A hypnotherapist can help you get to a subconscious state, which is the part of your brain that holds your emotions and can impact your behavior. If you can challenge those emotions and thinking, you can shift your behaviors. This is a big step in quitting smoking, as well as:

  • Managing stress
  • Relieving performance anxiety, such as before taking a test
  • Feeling better about your body
  • Desiring to exercise and eat healthier

These are just a few areas hypnosis can help with.
