Hypothalamus, the small part with a big job.

The hypothalamus is called the "brain of the brain" and controls many bodily functions, including maintaining normal functioning, known as homeostasis. It is located towards the base of the brain and above the pituitary gland and brain stem. It's only about the size of almond but does so many vital responsibilities. 

It helps to stimulate or inhibit:

  • Heart rate & blood pressure

  • Body temperature

  • Fluid & electrolyte balance - including thirst

  • Enzyme release in the stomach and intestines

  • Hunger & appetite

  • Sleep cycles

  • Organ regulation

    • Thyroid, Adrenal, Reproductive, Autonomic System, & Neurotransmitter​

  • Hormone production & secretion of:

    • Anti-Diuretic Hormone - Increases water absorption into the blood through the kidneys​​​

    • Corticotrophin-releasing hormone - stimulates adrenal glands to produce corticosteroids

    • Gonadotrophin-releasing hormone - stimulates FSH and LH for ovaries and testes

    • Growth hormone-releasing hormone or growth hormone-inhibiting hormone (Somatostatin) - helpful to maintain healthy body composition and healthy bone & muscle mass in adults. Effects our fat distribution

    • Oxytocin - The feel-good hormone! Helps with orgasm, ability to trust, body temperature, sleep cycles, and the release of breastmilk

    • Prolactin-releasing hormone or prolactin-inhibiting hormone - Stimulates breastmilk production

    • Thyrotropin-releasing hormone - Stimulates the release of TSH, helps regulate metabolism, energy, growth, and development

What is a new visit like?

We can do the visits in person or remotely.

  1. If you are not already a client, we will have you fill out an intake, including a symptom survey. This allows us to get a good idea of your starting point and what we need to focus on. 

  2. We will do muscle testing to check how your hypothalamus responds to specific energy imprints. 

  3. Once we find the imprint that is not being understood/registered/used by the hypothalamus, we will reset!

  4. To reset the hypothalamus, we will touch and tap on your back along your spinal column, then tap specific acupuncture points on your hands, arms, ankles, and feet. 

  5. We recheck the hypothalamus to make sure it was "reset" and move on to the next imprint. If not, we redo the reset.

  6. We can do four resets per session.


How often are the follow-up sessions?

Follow-up sessions are typically 1-4 weeks out based on the individual

How many sessions will I need?

Most clients require an average of 2-4 sessions

Will I have to redo any of the energy imprints?

Typically, no. There are a few cases where we will have to reset the imprints again due to significant physical or emotional trauma or sedation from surgery. 

How does it work?

HRT is based on the belief that imbalances in our brain's communication cause the hypothalamus to switch off or "short-circuited." We can find the specific imprint that caused it to turn off and turn it back on through spinal reflex and acupuncture points. 

How was it created?

Dr. Michael Chance developed it for his son, who was suffering from gastroparesis, a condition when the stomach signals to the brain that it's full, even after a few bites. He tried every alternative and medical treatment available without avail, and eventually, his son had hypoglycemia and seizures. As of 2020, Dr. Chance created HRT for over ten years. He had subjective research of over 3500 patient cases with over 21000 sessions. In 2021, he is currently working with an independent specialist to run neurologic pre and post-tests for ADD clients. Initial research shows dramatic changes after a single session. Many of the research EEGs and other modalities have been delayed with the pandemic, but we can't wait to see the results!
