Coaching and Hypnotherapy at Port City Chiropractic

beautiful woman smilingIf you are looking to boost your efforts in goal achievement, reduce your anxiety, kick a bad habit like smoking, or even if you’re having troubles in business and relationships, Dr. Shawn Shapiro offers a unique combination of hypnosis and coaching, based on Neuro-Linguistic Programming, to push through any mental blocks that may be preventing you from achieving optimal wellness and living the life you dream of.

As a certified clinical hypnotherapist, he’ll help you establish your goals and then use the programming to activate the parts of your brain to help you act toward those goals.

How It Works at Port City Chiropractic

All of us are in a mental wave pattern, like the one entered in hypnotherapy, much of the time. And it happens whether we have help entering that pattern or not; you don’t realize it, but you’re even experiencing it as you research Port City Chiropractic!

Dr. Shapiro simply helps focus that ability we all have innately and gets you into that meta brainwave, so you are open to more suggestions and make the positive improvements in your life you so desire.

You will establish the suggestions you want to be made to your higher functioning mind—your subconscious—and Dr. Shapiro helps you take your conscious mind out of the equation.

This allows for a clear mental path. From there, Dr. Shapiro helps reinforce, within your subconscious mind, your goals and the actions you need to follow through and make it all possible.

How Can It Help?

Here are some common issues that benefit from Dr. Shapiro’s unique coaching and hypnotherapy combination:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fears and phobias
  • Pain management
  • Sleep disorders
  • Smoking cessation
  • Weight loss

What to Expect

When you are part of Dr. Shapiro’s program, he’ll first set up a 15-minute encounter call, typically set for the evenings, over Zoom. It helps him and the patients decide together if this type of treatment will be beneficial for the prospective patient.

If you decide to move forward with Dr. Shapiro, an intake is done that night, during which you outline what you want to achieve. This usually takes about 35 to 40 minutes. It’s then decided how many follow-up sessions you’ll need. Some patients choose to have a treatment weekly, while others opt for every other week or monthly. Most people start with an every-other-week appointment.

There’s Nothing to Fear

Dr. Shapiro strives to help patients get results quickly. We’re all about efficiency and making sure we don’t waste our patients’ time.

If this is the first time you’re receiving any type of coaching or hypnotherapy, rest assured you will be in highly capable hands with Dr. Shapiro and his team.


What exactly is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a dream-like state of mind, similar to a state of mind of an individual in deep meditation or prayer. Day-dreaming is also considered an altered dream-like state of mind.

How do you know if I can be hypnotized?

If you are willing to resolve your problem once and for all, nothing can stand in your way. If you are not sure about fixing the problem, we can help you realize why not.

Will I have any control while being under hypnosis?

Rest assured that you are in control all the time during your hypnotherapy sessions. You are able and invited to discuss any concern with Dr. Shapiro.

How often will I need to come in?

It depends on the person. We had a patient come in who wanted to give up e-cigarettes. After just one sessions, the patient threw the JUUL out in the lobby and never smoked again.

For those who want to quit smoking, we usually recommend that patients have 3-5 sessions. Again, it all depends on the person.
