Ryan Berlin: Last time we were talking, you were telling me a little bit about what is going on in your practice. Tell me what you’ve been up to lately.
Bill Jacobs: Well, I started out working with children a lot and families. And about four years ago I transitioned into working with traumatized people – emotional trauma. Since I’ve been doing that, I’ve been learning a lot about how the mind and the body work together. I mean, I used to kind of poo-poo all of that, but my clients are making a believer out of me.
I was working with a lady, the other day, who grew up with an alcoholic father. He was a “mean drunk,” as she put it. One of the things that he used to do to her was stand behind her at dinner and brow beat her about cleaning her plate. And as she got older, she still kept cleaning her plate, and now that she’s getting a little bit older – like I am – it’s kind of sticking to the ribs a little bit. So she wanted to work on that. So we started with the image of him doing that and, as the therapy progressed, she started feeling a pain in her left shoulder. It came out that he used to grab her by her left shoulder and yell at her and tell her to clean her plate. So that’s kind of from the mind to the body.
I was wondering, in your chiropractic work, if you ever see that going the other direction?
Ryan Berlin: Meaning, when I do therapy, would I see them having emotional relief?
